Dancing with the Stars, Season 14
DWTS Results Recap: A Shocking Exit Leaves Three for the Finals
The competition is fierce between our final four. Its unlike any other season of Dancing with the Stars. Its insane how talented these folks have been since the very beginning of the season.
I fear for Katherine Jenkins. Although she has been a mostly consistent frontrunner, she has stumbled here at the end earning the lowest scores of Monday night. She also may have seriously injured her back. Everyone else was pretty solid. As I said before, this is a tight race to the finish.
The judges select William Levy and Cheryl Burkes perfect-scoring samba for an encore. I really liked this dance on Monday night. It was just fun, light-hearted and had a lot of spice to it.
Lets get to Results!
Katherine and her partner Mark Ballas are up first. During the interview footage which was taken after their Monday performances, Katherine is upset and says that she feels like this may be the end of the road for her and Mark in this competition. It was kind of heartbreaking to watch her say that. She seems like such a sweet lady and has been really fantastic most nights.
Host Tom Bergeron announces that Katherines injury will not keep her out of the competition if she makes it through this results show. Thats some positive news. Thank goodness she wasnt seriously injured.
OMG!!! Katherine and Mark are going to the finals! Im like pleasantly shocked! Wow my goodness, who is going to go home? Ive got no clue.
Haha I loved Katherines reaction and shes still jumping up and down as they go to commercial.
The pros reveal their thoughts on our remaining celebs chances. Cheryls comment about Derek Hough pushing Maria Menounos despite her being injured seemed a little harsh to me. Maybe she didnt quite mean it the way it sounded?
Now theyre replaying Katherines injury. I could have done without seeing that again.
Pros Tristan MacManus and Chelsie Hightower perform as a part of Macys Design-a-Dance. Its always cool seeing the pros get out there and do their thing.
We have our first musical guest of the night as Alanis Morissette takes the stage to sing her new single Guardian.
Finally more results. Its Maria and Dereks turn. They were so awesome on Monday night, particularly with their Argentine tango. Their jive wasnt too shabby either.
Maria and Derek are in jeopardy. Seriously?!?! Oh, man. That is crazy. Boos in the ballroom.
Tom announces that next season will be an all-star edition of DWTS. It sounds pretty cool, but he said that former champs will come back. Thats not really fair, is it?
Former DWTS pro Julianne Hough is back and she brought two of her Rock of Ages co-stars Mary J. Blige and Diego Boneta for a performance. There is a lot of hair-slinging and head-banging going on. I bet theres a lot of that in the actual movie too.
Carrie Underwood hits the ballroom to sing Good Girl from her Blown Away album. Shes made an interesting fashion choice for her visit. Im not sure if its a thumbs up or thumbs down.
More results! William and Cheryl and Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd are up to bat. So, one of these couples has to be in jeopardy. Im feeling like it will possibly be Donald. Mr. Hottie William is such a fan favorite and was the second highest scorer. Meanwhile, Donald was the second lowest scorer. Eliminations are so difficult at this point.
William and Cheryl are in the finals!
Donald and Peta are in jeopardy.
Just to recap Maria and Derek and Donald and Peta are in jeopardy. Tom says, No matter which way it goes, its gonna suck. Ha. True story.
Maria and Derek are eliminated.
I cant even believe it. They scored a perfect 30 during the first round and a 29 during the second and ended Monday night as the top scoring couple. This is insane! I thought for sure it would have been Donald going home. Wow.
Dancing with the Stars will be back in action with the Season 14 finals on Monday, May 21st at 8PM/ET on ABC. Until then
