It was an emotional night on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars.

Focusing on the theme of “most memorable year,” dances paid tribute to a variety of topics including health struggles, motherhood and finding love.

But despite the passionate performances, three pairs were in jeopardy at the end of the night: Christina Milian and Mark Ballas, Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani, and Elizabeth Berkley and Val Chmerkovskiy.

On the fifth week of competition, Milian and Ballas were sent packing, despite earning the first 10 of the evening.

“Shock in the ballroom,” Brooke Burke said.

“It’s a true shock, I wasn’t expecting that, but we had I think the best performance tonight that we had thus far,” Milian said of her 28-point cha cha that Len Goodman, in awarding a perfect 10, called “fantastic!”

“I’m just very proud of Christina, we worked really hard, she was great tonight. We went out with a bang,” said Ballas.
