Dancing with the Stars Recap: 10th Anniversary Special

DWTS Recap: Who Went Home After a Nasty Comment from Bruno Tonioli?

An interesting development occurred before everyone laced up their Danskins on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars – Noah Galloway was fixing to dance with a prosthetic arm!

DWTS: Which Couple Didn't Make It to the Finals?

The final five couples took to the stage for this week’s Dancing with the Stars semifinals, and while each duo had impressive performances, one couple had to be sent home. This week Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd took their final bows on the dance floor after performing two dances to different types of music – one plugged and the other unplugged – for this week’s theme.

“I’ve just showed that old stoners can perform when they need to!” joked Chong during his final send-off.

Here’s how the couples fared:

Round One

DWTS: Who Got the Boot Before Tommy Chong?

Going with great news – rather than just a great performance – is the best way to start off Dancing with the Stars. To that end, Monday’s installment killed it with the bulletin that oldie but goodie Tommy Chong made it for another week!

But Chong getting to stay meant that a (high-scoring) celebrity had to go. So it was a surprise when Lea Thompson – who looked stunning while performing some of her best dances – was named as the next hoofer to leave the ballroom.

DWTS: Who Was Finally Eliminated on Monday's Show?

It was a Dynamic Duos theme under the mirror ball on Dancing with the Stars Monday but the night’s Tarzan – better known as Michael Waltrip – couldn t swing enough votes to keep him and his Jane inside the fringe jungle.

The racecar driver became the latest celebrity to leave the ABC show.

“It was a chance to do something that was more emotional than it was physical, to get to experience the wonderful cast, to get to know Emma’s heart and who she is as a person,” Waltrip told host Tom Bergeron. “I’m happy I got to be here and sad I have to go.”

Whose Waltz Scared the Judges and Lost Him a Chance for the Mirror Ball Trophy?

How’s this for scary: Judge Len Goodman started the night in a casket!

It was an appropriate opening because the returning judge had to help sound the death knell for Antonio Sabato Jr.

No matter how many times the soap star went shirtless under the mirror ball this season, he and partner Cheryl Burke just couldn’t keep the judges, or viewers, happy.

“I danced with one of the best in the world,” Sabato Jr. said. “It’s all about the fans and that’s why I am here.”
