Show over on the west coast. Before I get to results, a scoring clarification.
They will not be using two weeks of judges scores, only one. The combined score is the current week's judges scores and the previous week's audience vote.
(two weeks of judges scores for the finale, most likely)
At the top it was clarified that Bill Nye hadn't just tripped during his routine last week, he tore his quad muscle. He went to the doctor and was receiving treatment all through the week and during the show as well. Although he could have withdrawn and nobody would have argued, he had his partner choreograph a routine where he didn't have to move much (his leg was immobilized).
From a performance point of view, Elizabeth&Val and Nicole&Sasha stepped up their game. Valerie&Tristan just didn't do so well and were at the bottom of the judges leader board (tied with Bill Nye&Tyne). I believe they'll be gone next week.
Bill Engvall&Emma did a paso doble to the Lone Ranger theme. Somehow the paso doble and the last section of Rossini's William Tell Overture shouldn't have worked, but it did. Bill E did a proper paso.
A shortened version of the safe/in danger - only the three couples in danger were announced. They were Brant&Peta, Bill Nye&Tyne, and Christina&Mark.
And eliminated were Bill Nye&Tyne.
Next week, Julianne Hough makes her return to the ballroom and debut as judge. Gonna be interesting in how hard she critiques her brother Derek.
