It’s semi-final night Dancing with the stars! We have to wonder how many people were watching with us during Season 31. Disney+ has yet to release any viewership numbers for the former ABC show, which isn’t an encouraging sign. And this is too bad: Dancing with the stars Under the leadership of Executive Producer, Conrad Green, it has found its glory again, from inspiring co-stars like Selma Blair and Danielle Durant, to the refreshing way it has re-illuminated it. ballroom.
Case in point: Throughout the season, the judges have given us “master classes” on how to perform a perfect type of ballroom dance. On Monday, for example, Pasha Pashkov and Daniela Karagacz performed a flawless Viennese Waltz while Derek Hough and Lynn Goodman provided insightful commentary. That’s why we love this show so much! Thanks for the much needed reminder, Mr. Green.
Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater. Slater doesn’t like her chances in the semi-finals. The last three times Cha Cha has sung with her celebrity partner, she has been eliminated. Tonight might not be any different: The judges weren’t completely sold on his shirtless performance. (Does he only dance in notes if he makes it to the finals?) “It’s incredible to see how far you’ve come,” Hough said. “It’s always so much fun watching you and you always make me feel insecure about my body.” result: 32 out of 40
Daniel Durant and Brett Stewart. The coda The actor feels like he’s in the cool club after last week’s impressive results. What’s better than the awesome club, the Divine Dancers Guild? Because Durant’s Viennese Waltz should qualify him for immediate membership. “You really are Prince Charming,” said Bruno Tonioli. “Everyone here has fallen in love with you. What you bring to the dance floor is so amazing. You’re just cruising across the dance floor.” result: 35 out of 40
Shangela and Gleb Savchenko. No one seemed to have more fun in this competition than Shangela, who never broke down during rehearsals or complained about her partner (who, to be fair, sounds like one helluva fella). Tonight, Shangela was as exhausted as ever, dancing a paso doble to Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory.” “It’s so easy to love you because everything you do,” said Carrie Ann Inaba. “You don’t dance fear. You’re never afraid of failure and I love that so much. It makes your performance so exciting.” result: 36 out of 40
Wayne Brady and Whitney Carson. Well, that’s embarrassing; The Let’s make a deal He admitted during the rehearsal that he once looked fondly at another woman while he was married. He didn’t act on it, but he did have a special relationship with his wife. To make a short story short: they eventually broke up. Off. Anyway, that was his inspiration for the movie Paso Doble. surely? “Awesome first dance,” said Hough. “We have to be very precise. Your shoulders are rolling forward a little bit. It just felt a little angular to me. It’s a semi-final. But overall, it was still a solid dance.” Oh, and Carson announced that she’s expecting baby No. 2! result: 36 out of 40
Gabe Wendy and Val Chmerkovskiy. The Bachelorette opened up about her recent split from Eric Scheuer and how she wants to direct her parents’ relationship — not her failed show — into a Viennese Waltz. It worked! “You really looked like you came out of a dream,” Tonioli said. “We had seen the Viennese Waltz earlier and it was amazing. This was just as beautiful in a different way. The way you used the changes of tempo…. Lovely baby!” full mark
Charlie D’Amelio and Mark Ballas. The frontrunner’s body finally breaks down. Well, maybe it just happens to her feet. Actually, we’re talking about one toe: She has an ingrown nail! But she certainly didn’t stand in the way of her Viennese dancing with her professional partner. She even made Inaba cry! “This was perfection beyond perfection, just so open and so powerful!” She said. “Mark, I know I was pushing you guys but you guys brought it to the dance floor tonight. That was amazing.” full mark
Goodman started at two o’clock Dancing with the stars Announcing some sad news: this season will be his last! The Chief Justice wants to spend time with the grandkids, but he’ll definitely miss fancy hooves. “I can’t thank you enough, the DWTS family. It’s been an amazing experience for me. I’m looking forward to next weekend. I’m sure it’s going to be absolutely amazing,” said Goodman, who has been a part of the show since the beginning in 2005.
Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater. The actor is very strange. He’s been forgetting steps in training and feeling the weight of being the underdog this season. But the judges were happy to throw him a bone after a wonderful Viennese waltz. “What I liked was that there was an amazing amount on hold,” Goodman said. “A little jumping at times, and it would have had a more fluid movement. The dancing didn’t come easy. But I’ve enjoyed watching your progress throughout the season. Well done.” result: 33 out of 40
Daniel Durant and Brett Stewart. seriously, How did he do this? The actor’s samba was not only on the beat, but … as Inaba said, “it was a show off.” “Gosh, the samba is the hardest dance in this show,” said Hough. “This has a lot of content in it. So cool, there was a moment where I was in awe of the technique.” result: 34 out of 40
Wayne Brady and Whitney Carson. Brady chose “It’s a Man’s World” for his Viennese Waltz because it made him think about the important women in his life! It also made him feel like a failure when talking to Alfonso Ribeiro. “Well, that’s a man’s world,” said Goodman, “I wish someone would tell my wife.” “As always, a polished performance. As usual you really give it your all.” result: 37 out of 40
Shangela and Gleb Savchenko. The drag queen got an adorable close-up before performing a silky Viennese waltz (and acrobatics!) to Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing.” “I love when you show your fragility,” Tonioli said. “Chic and sophisticated. You’re class, and it shows.” result: 37 out of 40
Charlie D’Amelio and Mark Ballas. The frontrunner doesn’t understand how Paso Doble works. If Pallas is the bullfighter, then isn’t she the bull? number! she Head And Ballas says Goodman is the bull! Aww, that’s not nice on the night he quit! Goodman probably wouldn’t mind. In yet another stellar performance by the social media star. “Perfection is different for everyone,” said Inaba, who began her critique with a hug for both D’Amelio and Pallas. “I think your perfection is another level, madam. It’s incredible.” full mark
Gabe Wendy and Val Chmerkovskiy. The pro thinks his partner is a lot of fun, but he’s a little worried about her ability to appear combative during the Paso Doble. No more goofy Gabby, he insists! Windey left off the bat behind the scenes, but it sure would be nice if her face showed a little more emotion. Nevertheless, the judges were impressed. “It was a dramatic increase to the full end,” Tonioli said. “I was like a pressure cooker about to explode. Another great job, Val. That was genius!” full mark
Donovan and Slater were immediately sent home because they had the fewest votes and the lowest judges’ scores on Monday.
Durant/Stewart and Shangela/Savchenko were left in the final. Tonioli, Inaba, and Hugh save Shangela and Savchenko, so Durant returns home. What a great run of coda the actor!
Wendy/Chmerkovskiy, Damilio/Palace, Brady/Carson, and Shangela/Savchenko are headed to the Finals next week.
