“Dancing With the Stars” cha-cha’d into the Week 7 results show on April 30. Witney Carson and some of the guys from the pros and troupe performed a very spirited number to “Jump in the Line.” The night was full of emotional stories, performances and the sad part of sending someone home, which left six couples in the competition.
After a quick recap of last night’s dances and dance-offs, it was time for some entertainment. Before the dreaded eliminations, the crowd cheered for four-time Grammy winner Michael Bublé performing his hit “Come Dance With Me.”
Judge Len Goodman announced that the judges chose Aly and Mark’s salsa for the encore dance. It was just as good the second time around.
And then it was time for the eliminations to begin. Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough won immunity from elimination last night, so they didn’t have to face the big pause. Of the six remaining couples from the dance-offs faced the music.
Announced as safe:
- Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy were announced as safe.
- Alexandra Raisman and Mark Ballas were announced as safe.
- Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd
Announced as in jeopardy:
- Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
- Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson
- Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess
Waiting for the final results meant entertainment. The first act up was the Camden Sophisticated Sisters in the AT&T Spotlight Performance. This amazing group of young women, led by Tawanda Jones, was formed 26 years ago to help impoverished women find their purpose in Camden, N.J., one of the poorest and most dangerous cities in the nation. “DWTS” will be purchasing mirrors for their practice studio.
The audience grew quiet as Boston Marathon Bombing victim Adrian Haslet told her story. She’s been dancing since she can remember and, sadly, she lost her foot in the bombing. She’s in intense therapy right now and will be dancing her first post-recovery dance on the “DWTS” ballroom floor.
The Macy’s Stars of Dance spotlight featured a beautiful number danced by Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boxx and Allison Holker from “So You Think You Can Dance,” accompanied by internet sensation Lindsey Stirling on the violin.
The final elimination revealed that Jacoby and Karina were safe. That left Ingo and Kym, and Andy and Sharna in the bottom two.
And then there were two. Ingo and Kym were announced as safe and, sadly, Andy and Sharna’s time was up. Andy was a little choked up, but said this experience has been the best and then jokingly blamed Carrie Ann for the five last night. He thanked everybody. “It’s been a wonderful ride.”
Next week’s performance show kicks off on Monday, May 6, at 8 p.m. eastern on ABC. Couples will be dancing their own dance plus a trio round where they will be joined by an eliminated pro or a member of the dance troupe. Don’t miss a step!
