It’s baaack! Season 27 of Dancing With the Stars premiered on ABC on Monday, Sept. 24 and we couldn’t be happier for our favorite reality competition to be on the air again. 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 find out who was eliminated on the latest DWTS episode!
During last evening’s Trio Night, couples Tinashe and Brandon Armstrong and Evanna Lynch and Keo Motsepe were announced as being in jeopardy. Then, in perhaps the most surprising elimination of the season so far, Tinashe and Brandon were voted off, despite receiving a score of 26/30 from the judges for their trio dance with DWTS alum Amy Purdy. We’ll miss watching you dance each week, Tinashe and Brandon!
Last night, Tanashe and Brandon Armstrong and Val Chmerkovskiy and Nancy McKeon were announced as the two couples in jeopardy. In the end, it was Val and the Facts of Life star who were unfortunately sent packing. We will miss watching them in the ballroom so much, but at least Val’s fiancée, Jenna Johnson, is still in the running to win!
After couples Danelle Umstead and Artem Chigvintsev and John Schneider and Emma Slater were announced as being in jeopardy, America sadly voted off Danelle and Artem during Week 2 of the competition. We’ll miss watching you dance so much, Danelle!

It’s really hard to put in words how I feel. Humble, sad and inspired at the same time. Watching a blind woman cry is truly heartbreaking. @danelleumstead you’ve touched so many people out there with your spirit determination and love, you made me appreciate life and not take it for granted, you made me a better teacher and a better person. I will always remember that. Stay who you are and never change you making impossible possible!
At the start of the show, we learned that couples Mary Lou Retton and Sasha Farber, Danelle Umstead and Artem Chigvintsev, Nikki Glaser and Gleb Savchenko, Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten, and Nancy McKeon and Val Chmerkovskiy were all in jeopardy. Then, after those six pairs performed redemption dances, comedian Nikki and her pro partner Gleb were sadly the first duo to be voted off of DWTS Season 27. We’ll miss you, Nikki and Gleb!
