DWTS: Which Couple Didn't Make It to the Finals?

Originally posted 11/17/2014 10:15PM

The final five couples took to the stage for this week's Dancing with the Stars semifinals, and while each duo had impressive performances, one couple had to be sent home. This week Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd took their final bows on the dance floor after performing two dances to different types of music – one plugged and the other unplugged – for this week's theme.

"I've just showed that old stoners can perform when they need to!" joked Chong during his final send-off.

Here's how the couples fared:

DWTS: Who Got the Boot Before Tommy Chong?

Originally posted 11/10/2014 10:30PM

Going with great news – rather than just a great performance – is the best way to start off Dancing with the Stars. To that end, Monday's installment killed it with the bulletin that oldie but goodie Tommy Chong made it for another week!

But Chong getting to stay meant that a (high-scoring) celebrity had to go. So it was a surprise when Lea Thompson – who looked stunning while performing some of her best dances – was named as the next hoofer to leave the ballroom.

"I just feel really great. I feel strong and I'm anxious to get back to my day job on Switched at Birth," Thompson said. "I love this man [Artem Chigvintsev] and he's a new pro and I think he did a great job with me."

DWTS: Who Was Finally Eliminated on Monday's Show?

Originally posted 11/03/2014 10:30PM

It was a Dynamic Duos theme under the mirror ball on Dancing with the Stars Monday but the night's Tarzan – better known as Michael Waltrip – couldn’t swing enough votes to keep him and his Jane inside the fringe jungle.

The racecar driver became the latest celebrity to leave the ABC show.

"It was a chance to do something that was more emotional than it was physical, to get to experience the wonderful cast, to get to know Emma's heart and who she is as a person," Waltrip told host Tom Bergeron. "I'm happy I got to be here and sad I have to go."

"I'm so emotional," added his pro Emma Slater. "He's made me a better person. You meet these people and he has a big heart. I'll be a better person for the rest of my life."

Whose Waltz Scared the Judges and Lost Him a Chance for the Mirror Ball Trophy?

How's this for scary: Judge Len Goodman started the night in a casket!

It was an appropriate opening because the returning judge had to help sound the death knell for Antonio Sabato Jr.

No matter how many times the soap star went shirtless under the mirror ball this season, he and partner Cheryl Burke just couldn't keep the judges, or viewers, happy.

"I danced with one of the best in the world," Sabato Jr. said. "It's all about the fans and that's why I am here."

What's Up with the Chemistry Between DWTS Champs Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis?

Originally posted 05/21/2014 06:55PM



There's no denying that Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Olympic gold medal ice dancer Meryl Davis have chemistry on the dance floor. All season long the Dancing With the Stars duo wowed the show's judges and viewers with one stellar performance after another.

As in-step as they are on the dance floor, it's their off-the-dance-floor connection that has folks wondering, "Are they or aren't they?" Or, in the case of DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who declared after the couple's emotional and soulful freestyle routine Monday night, "I think the two of you should get married."

That seems to be the general consensus among fans and colleagues, who experienced a gentler, kinder and more playful Chmerkovskiy this season. And humbler.

It was a night of exciting performances, positive reviews from the judges and a pair of big twists for the eight remaining couples on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.

First, the pairs had to perform in an improvisational switch-up challenge, which required them to show off their ability to transition seamlessly while dancing to music that suddenly changed.

Then, at elimination time, there was an even bigger twist that one no one – not even producers – had seen coming.
