'Dancing with the Stars' Semifinals See Another Shocking Elimination, Reveal Three Finalists
"Dancing with the Stars" is only a week away from unveiling the winner of its season 24. On Monday, May 15, the remaining four dancers competed in the semifinals for a spot in the finals. Each of them danced twice, including a challenge from one of the judges.
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy kicked off the first round, which was the Judges Challenge Dances. They danced a Viennese Waltz, chosen by Len Goodman. There was a little stumble, but the judges still loved it. Normani earned 36 out of 40 points.
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold danced a Foxtrot as requested by Julianne Hough. Julianne wanted him to keep his booty tucked in, so she gave him lemons to squeeze between his butt cheeks. Len said that his heart told him to be nice, but his brain told him that it's just not a very good dance. Davis is clearly the last bad dancer left on the show. He got 34 points.
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber got a Jive from Carrie Ann Inaba. It was a fun concept and Simone showed her sexier and tougher side. Bruno Tonioli loved that she let loose. "I am loving the reckless, sassy attitude," he added. Simone earned a perfect score of 40 for the first time.
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater danced a Rumba chosen by Bruno. It was a beautiful and sensual dance. Len and Julianne loved the fluidity, though Len saw some funny footwork. Bruno said Rashad's "exceeding all expectations." He got 38 points.
Normani and Val returned for the second dance, a Jazz. It was a fun and big production that earned a standing ovation from Len, something which he rarely did. "That dance was outstanding," Julianne gushed, while Carrie Ann praised their teamwork. Normani earned 40 points, her third perfect score in the competition.
David and Lindsay danced a Tango in the second round. The former MLB player danced about his struggle making it into the pros. Carrie Ann dubbed it his best dance yet, and Len appreciated that he "worked harder, tried harder" than others in the competition. David earned 36 points.
Simone and Sasha followed it up with an emotional Rumba. Bruno said, "I really love the way that you let the dance flow out of you, effortlessly." Carrie Ann loved that she just danced with her soul. Simone got another perfect score.
Rashad and Emma rounded it up with a Quickstep. Julianne said he was light on his feet and the judges loved it, except for Len who said it was good, but not great. The NFL player earned 39 points.
Next, it was time for elimination. Normani & Val were the first to be announced save and making it to the finals, followed by Rashad & Emma and David & Lindsay. This meant that Simone and Sasha were eliminated, despite the fact that they got perfect scores for all of their two dances tonight.
