This week’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’ kicked off with some technical difficulties, but it had no affect on tonight’s dancing!
With a double elimination just 24 hours away, the remaining contestants brought their A-game to the Nov. 12 episode of Dancing with the Stars, making it difficult to predict who will go home tomorrow!
First Round — Veterans Day Tribute:
Shawn Johnson and partner Derek Hough danced the Viennese Waltz for a total score of 29.5/30.
“Sometimes a whisper is louder than a shout,” Len Goodman said. “This was quiet and gentle yet it was louder than any full on music you could hear.”
Apolo Anton Ohno and partner Karina Smirnoff danced the tango for a total score of 29.5/30.
“Those guns are fully loaded for maximum fire power, Bruno Tonioli yelled. “He was like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible. It was fantastic.”

“Hallelujah!” Len said. “Your best dance! Well done.”
Kelly Monaco and partner Val Chmerkovskiy danced the Viennese Waltz for a total score of 28/30.
“You’re a twinkling twirler!” Bruno said. “You are.”
Gilles Marini and partner Peta Murgatroyd danced the quickstep for a total score of 29.5/30.
“You’re too tough,” Bruno said. “Like an F-18 — fast, slick, efficient!”

Melissa Rycroft and partner Tony Dovolani danced the quickstep for a total score of 30/30.
“It was a quickstep and that’s what we got. It was quick and there was step,” Len said. “That was the bees knees.”
The Trio Dance:
Shawn and Derek Hough were joined by Mark Ballas for their tribal-like samba trio, and earned a score of 26/30, totaling their score to 93.5.
“I’m telling you I have jungle fever,” Bruno said. “As a piece of art, it was absolutely fantastic. Creatively, it was outstanding but even I have to admit it wasn’t really a samba.”
Apolo and Karina were joined by Sasha Farber and danced a jive trio for a score of 29/30, totaling their score to 91.5.
“You conquered this brilliantly,” Bruno said. “You really are at the top of the game.”
Kirstie and Maks were joined by Tristan MacManus to perform their paso trio for a score of 24/30, totaling their score to 79.
“It was a bit surreal, wasn’t it?” Bruno asked. “You always give a surreal interpretation. You have to scratch under the surface. It’s like a psychedelic movie going on.”
Kelly and Val were joined by Louis Van Amstel to perform their jive trio for a score of 28.5/30, totaling their score to 92.5.
“What a swinger!” Bruno raved. “You take one. You can take the other. Either way, you’re always on top.”
Gilles and Peta were joined by Chelsea Hightower to perform their salsa trio for a score of 29/30, totaling their score to 92.
“Menage a trois seems to be natural to you,” Bruno said. “I think the french invented it didn’t they? I think you handled it very well.”

“This time you were in the red hot spicy jalapeño zone,” Carrie Ann Inaba said.
Melissa and Tony were joined by Henry Byalikov to perform their paso trio for a score of 30/30, totaling their score to 99.
“Shamelessly, between Tony and Henry, you were like a frisbee being tossed around,” Len said. “Out of all the contestants, you impressed me the most.”
Topping the leader board this week are Melissa and Tony with 99 points, while Kirstie and Maks are at the bottom with 79 points.
Due to the Election last week, tomorrow will be a DOUBLE elimination so be sure to vote!
