Say it ain’t so! Dancing With the Stars viewers sadly had to say goodbye to yet another celeb contestant on tonight’s new episode of the hit reality competition. Though it’s always tough to see a star and his or her dance partner voted off the show, we know it’s just a normal part of the series we must endure each week (after all, how else would we get a winner?!). Scroll down to see which celeb was eliminated during tonight’s DWTS episode — and see who is still left competing on the show!
Tonight was part one of the Season 25 finals, so the final three were chosen! The final four couple that was sadly eliminated ahead of the finale? Drew Scott and Emma Slater. “There’s no way I could have done anything that I did out here without her,” Drew said of his partner following the sad news. “Look at that amazing, amazing talent, I can’t even believe I’m here with these guys. Thank you and thank you to the judges and the crew and everyone… you’ve made this a once in a lifetime opportunity.” We’ll miss the Property Brother and Sister so much!
Tonight marked the Season 25 semi-finals, but once pair sadly had to say goodbye to their chance at the Mirror Ball Trophy next week — and that was Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy. It was perhaps one of the most emotional eliminations of the season and hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews couldn’t help but praise Victoria for her efforts and inspirations the past few weeks. “Thank you so much to Victoria and thank you to the show for trusting me with such an amazing young woman. The future is bright for you, this is just the beginning,” Val gushed to his partner. We’ll miss Val and Victoria’s energy in the ballroom, that’s for sure!
At the end of the Week 8 quarterfinals, NFL star Terrell Owens and and his pro partner Cheryl Burke were unfortunately sent home. “I had a great time. She was a great teacher, I couldn’t have asked for anything more,” Terrell said of his time on the show with Cheryl adding, “Terrell, I’m so proud of the dancer you’ve become but more importantly, the person you’ve allowed us all to see.” We’ll miss seeing you in the ballroom, Terrell, and Cheryl!
After a spooky Halloween episode, there were two couples voted off DWTS in a surprise double elimination. The couples eliminated during the week seven episode were sadly Vanessa Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvinstev. Due to time constraints, the hosts weren’t able to chat with the pairs, but we bet they really enjoyed their time on the show — and we will miss them in the ballroom very much!
The couple eliminated during “Movie Night” was sadly Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd. “I think I’m most proud of the fact that we laid it all out there… I came not a very good dancer, I’m going to leave not a very good dancer but I’m proud of the effort we gave. That’s all I can ask, honestly, it was a blast,” Nick said after being voted off. Thankfully, we’ll continue seeing Nick in the DWTS ballroom as he cheers on his wife, contestant Vanessa Lachey, and her pro partner, Maks Chmerkovskiy. We’ll miss watching you perform, Nick and Peta!
After a fun-filled Disney night, actress Sasha Pieterse was the fourth celebrity to be eliminated on Season 25. Earlier in the evening, Sasha and her partner Gleb Savchenko performed a routine inspired by the film The Little Mermaid. “Oh my, I knew it was going to be amazing, but it blew my expectations away,” the blonde beauty said after being sent home. “I’m so happy that I got to share my story.”
After the “Most Memorable Year” episode, another couple was sadly voted off the dancing competition — Sharna Burgess and Derek Fisher. “I’m so happy and so proud to have been a part of this no matter how long it lasted. And I’m forever changed from it,” Derek said after his heartbreaking elimination. We will miss seeing Sharna and the former NBA star on the show so much!
At the culmination of Week 3’s “Guilty Pleasures Night,” hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announced the evening’s elimination would be postponed until next week. “The couple with the lowest combined total of viewers votes and judges scores from tonight and last week will be eliminated next Monday,” Tom explained just before the episode ended. Though we’re not totally sure why a celeb escaped elimination tonight, many fans assumed it was because Dancing With the Stars‘ live broadcast was cut short due to an ABC Special Report on the tragic, Las Vegas mass shooting at the top of the program.
Week 2 (Night 2)
On the second night of Week 2, pair Debbie Gibson and Alan Bersten were unfortunately voted off the show. “This show in this short amount of time — and this guy, [my partner, Alan], right here — I feel like I’ve gotten my life back. So, I’m so thrilled. And, we’re going to keep dancing, how about that?” the singer, who was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2013, said after being voted off the show. We’ll miss you, Debbie and Alan!
Week 2 (Night 1)
On the first night of Week 2, DWTS couple Barbara Corcoran and Keo Motsepe were eliminated. “It was such an honor and probably the most exciting thing I’ve ever done in my whole life,” the Shark Tank star said of her departure. We’re sorry to see you go so soon, Barbara and Keo!
Who is still left on the show?
After tonight’s DWTS elimination, fans will get to see Malcolm in the Middle Star Frankie Muniz (with Witney Carson), actor Jordan Fisher (with Lindsay Arnold), and violinist Lindsey Stirling (with Mark Ballas) perform in the finale tomorrow night. Who do you think will win the Mirror Ball Trophy?
