After Monday night's impressive and emotional semifinal performances, would it be such a terrible idea to just hand out four Mirrorballs and call everyone a winner? I don't think so. But unlike kindergarten soccer, someone has to win, and someone has to lose in this glittery game.
On Tuesday, one of the couples who earned some of the season's highest scores from the judges was cut, which I'm sure created an uproar from many armchair dance "experts" watching. But, to be fair, this show is as much about the popular vote as it is about dance skill, and, like it or not, sometimes it's not all about the dance. Unjust? I'll let you debate it in the comments, but for now, let's discuss what happened and find out which couples are left to battle it out for the season 20 golden Mirrorball Trophy next week.
Demi Moore Didn't Want Rumer Willis to Do Dancing with the Stars: 'My Whole Insides Were Screaming No'

When Rumer Willis told mom Demi Moore that she wanted to do Dancing with the Stars, Moore had an immediate gut reaction.
"My whole insides, I have to be honest, were screaming, 'No,' " the actress said in a taped segment on Monday night's episode.

It's semifinals week, Dancing with the Stars fans, which this season means more than the usual ramped up chest exposure and ramped up Hough exposure; season 20 means ramped up judge exposure! But really, why has it taken 20 seasons to integrate the judges into the dance to make them prove they're worthy?
I've spent 10 years Googling Carrie Ann Inaba each season to remember what it is that qualifies her to critique ballroom dancing – or any dancing – and 10 years discovering that being a fly girl is apparently all it takes. (That's 20 seasons of face palms for those of you keeping score.)
Tonight's semifinals was about more than technique, skill, and judges stepping on toes (metaphoric and literal) however, it was a show full of surprises, emotion, and a lot of tissues ...

Eight weeks into Dancing with the Stars, six stars remained. But while they turned up the heat Monday night, two were sent home in tonight's double elimination.
But who would it be? As we learned with last week's shocker of a send-off that found Willow Shields packing, high scores from the table can only do so much and at-home voters can make all the difference.

Our apologies for the delayed Dancing with the Stars recap – hopefully it's just given you, America, more time to think of suggestions for your favorite dancing duos such as "lots of candles" and "y'all gonna be kissing?" That's not to discredit America's suggestions for hairstyles, costumes, music and dance style, which shaped the first of each couple's two dances tonight; giving the people what they wanted on Monday pulled out some of the best dances of the season, resulting in one perfect score, one near-perfect score and a finally happy (and still bare-chested) Bachelor.
And on top of making these beautiful people dance like the waltzing Barbies you never had, the second dances of the evening were trios! Sure, for Nastia Liukin that's just another day in partner Derek Hough's neighborhood – if you're going to bogart Nastia's post-dance hugs, Derek, please at least bring precious Sasha Farber into your loving embrace, as well – but I think Sharna Burgess said it best for the rest of the night's trios: "With all those extra limbs around, there're just more possibilities."
It was double the dances in preparation for a double elimination on Tuesday night. So hopefully America served its valued stars and pros well …

A staple in the Dancing with the Stars franchise, "Eras Night," returned Monday, and the stars danced routines inspired by a specific decade. The favorites (Nastia Liukin, Rumer Willis, Riker Lynch and Willow Shields) continued to please the judges, but who won immunity this week – and who was (shockingly!) sent home?

Forget Len Goodman – the only opinion that really matters is the one from dad.
On Monday's episode of Dancing with the Stars, Bruce Willis visited his daughter Rumer while she prepared for tonight's number for Era Night.
It was a painful workout – at one point, Rumer's partner Val Chmerkovskiy grabbed her neck too hard and left her writhing in pain. But Papa Willis only had words of praise for his oldest daughter.
"I love seeing her happy like that," Willis said. "Keep doing what you are doing. You guys are doing great."

Rumer Willis has been getting just as much attention for her extremely toned body as for her dancing skills as a contestant on this season of Dancing with the Stars.

While Dancing with the Stars' "Spring Break Night" had some skin-baring outfits, unlike many coeds' wild getaways, it was memorable.
Front-runners like Riker Lynch, Nastia Liukin and Rumer Willis continued to pull ahead, but not all of the competition did so hot individually. Lucky for the underdogs, there's strength in numbers, and this week's group performances gave everyone a boost.
