Since Thompson has improved throughout the season her exit came as a bit of a surprise, and there were some shouts of disbelief from the audience. Comedian Tommy Chong, who has struggled at or near the bottom of the leaderboard throughout the season, and his pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd, seemed surprised that they made it to the finals.
Janel Parrish and Valentin Chmerkovskiy won immunity after earning a perfect score for their contemporary routine on Nov. Five others stars return on Nov. This is the 19th season of program.
Individual Routines Alfonso Ribeiro: Head judge Len Goodman said the routine was full of razzmatazz.
Chong, who was surprised to learn tonight that he had made it to the semifinals, earned praise for his Viennese waltz. The judges said they observed a greater level of confidence from Thompson when she performed her samba. I was in Austria. Inaba said Robertson appeared to have trouble with the rapid kicks and flick in the first part of her routine, but she commended her for rallying in the second half. Goodman loved the dance content, and while he noted that the kicks and flicks could have been a little tighter, he said he thought the routine was terrific.

Robertson earned 33 points. Inaba and Hough believed it was the best performance of the night. Goodman said the routine had all the key elements of a quickstep. Parrish earned 38 points. This dance is great. Aside from fun choreography and the amazing costumes, they both look like they're having an absolute blast out there. Julianne makes some notes on Alfonso's legs. Bruno gushes about the costumes, and Carrie Ann calls the routine super smooth and super smart.
Len says they'll definitely be back next week.
Derek does a great job of putting a modern spin on a '50s sitcom and still making it a classic salsa with his and Bethany's "I Love Lucy"-inspired routine. It's such a contrast to their Halloween dance, but they still knock it out of the park.
Bethany may have been complaining about fatigue in the package, but she's as energized as ever when it comes to the performance. Bruno speaks in Spanish and praises Derek's versatility between last week's dark routine and this one. Carrie Ann saw one mistake on Bethany's part but says she's wonderfully animated.
Len and Julianne loved the routine and are amazed by how much Bethany has come out of her shell. The pairings are as follows: Both pairs put on a good show, but in my opinion, Lea and Artem have a slight edge.
Alfonso seems a little winded during his and Witney's routine, while Lea looks like she could dance the night away. All the judges say the couples were neck-in-neck — except for Carrie Ann, who puts her money behind Alfonso and Witney. She and Mark prove to be a tough act to follow. Derek unbuttons his shirt to go for the skin vote, but in my opinion, he and Bethany are no match for Team Quack Attack.
Julianne says both pairs were a little ahead of the music, but Bethany was a little tighter. Len says he'd like to see the routines again because it's such a tough decision. The silver lining is that Michael finally gets to be the sexier pro in a competition. I never thought I'd say this, but I have to admit Michael was the better dancer this time around. The judges do not agree, and I'm officially 0 for 3 on the team dances.
Tommy and Peta So, who's going home? And eliminated couple is No surprise there, but I'm still sad for Michael — who seems like a great guy, even if he is a terrible dancer.

I also hope that Emma will one day get a partner who's actually a contender. So, what did you think of tonight's episode? Did you agree with the verdicts of the dance-offs? Are you glad Michael went home?
