The biggest news to floor Dancing with the Stars viewers recently: Tamar Braxton had to bow out of the competition because of a health scare. Doctors found blood clots in her lungs. It’s too bad, but your health is more important than anything. Get well Tamar!

For this week’s Semifinals, each couple would perform three dances! How would they do? How were they going to handle three dances? Here’s the breakdown:

Round #1

Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough
Dance: Salsa
Phone Number: 855-234-5604

  • The dance was very clean and the steps were amazing, but I agree with Julianne that it should be a little more down and dirty! Bindi’s definitely a bright light but needed to get a little funkier.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-9- Total: 27

Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold
Dance: Waltz
Phone Number: 855-234-5601

  • It was a nice dance and for a non-dancer he has done well. I’m not sure if he is as good as the other three contestants left, however. The ballroom dances are a good fit for Alek but not sure if he deserves the Mirror Ball. I do not agree with the judges giving him a perfect score, but hey, isn’t that the fun of watching this show?

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Julianne-10, Bruno-10- Total: 30

Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson
Dance: Contemporary
Phone Number: 855-234-5605

  • I actually agree with Carrie Ann. I had mixed feelings about this dance as well. It was strong but it I didn’t connect to it. It’s hard to describe what I mean, but Carrie Ann gets it!

Score: Carrie Ann- 9,Julianne-9, Bruno-10- Total: 28

Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Tango
Phone Number: 855-234-5610

  • How can you not love Nick Carter? He messed up, but he kept going. He is a professional. One little misstep can happen, but it’s how you handle it that makes or breaks you.

Score: Carrie Ann- 8,Julianne-8, Bruno-8- Total: 24

DANCE OFF

DANCE GROUP #1
Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold vs. Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson:
Dance: Cha Cha

  • Carlos and Witney were by far the superior couple. I don’t know what Carrie Ann was thinking.

Judges’ Vote: Carrie Ann — Alek & Lindsay; Julianne — Carlos & Witney; Bruno — Carlos & Witney

  • Carlos and Witney snagged the three points added to their score.

DANCE GROUP #2

Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough vs. Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Samba

  • Nick came back and kicked butt. Bindi actually got down and dirty this time.

Score: Carrie Ann — Bindi & Derek; Julianne — Bindi & Derek; Bruno — Bindi & Derek

  • Bindi and Derek got the three points added to their score.

Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough and Mark Ballas
Dance: Jazz
Phone Number: 855-234-5604

  • As Bindi says: it’s crazy, crazy! What I like about this dance was that it was different and very creative. Bindi kept up with Derek and Mark and she definitely deserves to be in the finals.

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Julianne-10, Bruno-10- Total: 30

Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold and Emma Slater
Dance: Argentine Tango
Phone Number: 855-234-5601

  • Could Alek be more excited to get Emma? It was a better dance to me then the first one he did. All three judges said that Alek lost steam at the end and I have to concur. But how bad do I want Alek and Emma to be together?

Score: Carrie Ann- 9, Julianne-9, Bruno-9- Total: 27

Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson and Karina Smirnoff
Dance: Charleston
Phone Number: 855-234-5605

  • I love that Carlos is determined to win this whole thing for his wife. This was a very well executed dance and Carlos looked like he was having the time of his life. Carlos was up and center and outshined the girls.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Julianne-10, Bruno-10- Total: 29

Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd
Dance: Salsa
Phone Number: 855-234-5610

  • It’s nice to see Peta back! The two Aussie ladies with Nick are awesome! My favorite dance of the night by far. Nick came back strong!

Score: Carrie Ann- 10,Julianne-10, Bruno-10- Total: 30

Now for the elimination. The first couple sent to the finals was Alek and Lindsay. Carlos and Witney received the good news next. Bindi and Derek and Nick and Sharna were also safe because Tamar had to drop out. Everyone is in the finals!

Next week is a two-night Finale that should be quite exciting. Who will win the Mirror Ball trophy? We will have to wait until then. See you next time!
