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:

After wrapping up his suggestive dance with Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd on Monday night's episode of Dancing with the Stars, Tommy Chong capped things off with a suggestive remark to the judges – which had the audience roaring with laughter but left Burgess and Murgatroyd looking mortified.

What was he thinking?!

PEOPLE caught up with the Cheech & Chong star, 76, backstage after the show to ask him just that. And it turns out he's been reining himself in this whole season – acting out in rehearsals but holding back on the show in the interest of decorum.

DWTS: Who Got the Boot Before Tommy Chong?

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?

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."

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."

No one got eliminated Monday on Dancing with the Stars but there were lots of new – and hazardous! – moves going on under the mirror ball.

"Bang Bang" singer Jessie J had the unenviable task of guest judging on a night that involved switch-ups among the duos – and not everybody got the partner they deserved. (Tough luck, Michael Waltrip!)

Betsey Johnson Was Sent Home on Dancing with the Stars

It was "Most Memorable Year" night on the dance floor – though it should have been called let's gets super sad and personal because of all the teary-eyed video packages. But even a moving tribute to her adult daughter couldn't save designer Betsey Johnson on a night that gave America (or at least those on the East Coast) a chance to vote in place of the still-missing judge Len Goodman.

"Thank you, thank you, mostly to Tony, to my fans, this has been the best wonderful thing," said Johnson at the end of the show. "It's just been a trip, a big trip!"

The designer who started the night out in jeopardy earned a fairly respectable 29 after performing a panty-flashing handstand in her number with Tony Dovolani. "I think I saw your Victoria's Secret!" quipped judge Bruno Tonioli.

Even on a night that saw two perfect scores on Dancing with the Stars, someone still had to leave the ballroom for good.

Sadly, Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff began the night knowing they were in jeopardy. Based on scores from viewers and the judges last week, the duo became the third couple to leave the dance floor.

"It's been a great experience, putting myself out there and trying something new," said Couture.

Besides a roof-raising appearance by guest judge Kevin Hart, lots of other fun surprises happened underneath the mirror ball Monday. Here were the scores:

He might be 76 – but Tommy Chong has proved he's definitely still got it.

The comedian gave Dancing with the Stars viewers – and professional partner Peta Murgatroyd – a thrill during their salsa performance Monday night when he tore open his hot pink shirt and offered a peek at his impressive-looking abs.

"When he rips [his shirt] like he's the Hulk – I love that," Murgatroyd told PEOPLE with a grin after the show while standing beside Chong.
