Dance off time! Nev and Jenna are immune due to the highest scores, but get two extra points. They are NOT immune to elimination though.


Round 1: Cha cha cha to Telephone by Lady Gaga. It is Kaitlyn and Artem vs. Justina and Sasha. It was amazing to watch and hard to decide which one was better because this is a strong dance for both pairs. The judges all love it, but decide to give the two points to Justina and Sasha.

Round 2: Salsa to The Cup of Life by Ricky Martin. It is Skai and Alan vs. Nelly and Daniella. Even though I am enjoying Nelly shirtless, Skai definitely won this round. The judges love them both, but Skai wins the two points.


Round 3: Jive to Wake Me Up Before You Go Go by Wham! It is AJ and Cheryl vs. Johnny and Britt. Both couples do a solid dance and I honestly have to say it is too close to call at this point. The judges are impressed with them both, but in the end, the two points go to AJ.



Results! Kaitlyn and Artem, Skai and Alan, Nev and Jenna, Justina and Sasha and Nelly and Daniella are in the semi finals.

Johnny and Britt and AJ and Cheryl are in the bottom two.


Bruno saves Johnny and Britt.

Derek saves AJ and Cheryl.
