Dancing With the Stars Reveals Finalists — But Who Was Eliminated?! (VIDEO)
“Dancing With The Stars” had a huge elimination on Monday, during the season 19 semifinal round of competition. The five remaining couples all took to the dance floor to perform two routines.
Tommy Chong & Peta Murgatroyd and Sadie Robertson & Mark Ballas were ultimately revealed to be the final two couples in jeopardy, though not necessarily the Bottom Two. Based on the judges’ scores from last week, combined with viewers’ votes from last week, Chong & Murgatroyd were the ones eliminated.
There were audible boos from the crowd, and the judges gave the pair a standing ovation. The duo far outlasted predictions, with Murgatroyd even expecting to be cut week one. Instead they stuck around for nine weeks, building a fan base with entertaining performances. Asked what he’ll miss most about the show, Chong replied, “Everything.” He went on, “I just showed that old stoners can perform when they need to.”
That results mean next week’s two-part finale will feature Robertson & Murgatroyd, Bethany Mota & Derek Hough, Janel Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy, and Alfonso Ribiero & Witney Carson. All the pairs will again perform two routines, but the points and votes from tonight will determine who is cut at the end of next Monday’s episode. The Final 3 will then hit the ballroom again on Tuesday, in hopes of winning the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.
