The first elimination of the season came on the Sept. 20 episode of ‘DWTS’ — and you’ll never guess who was sent home.
It was a special encore episode full of performances, live dances from the pros, and behind-the-scenes, never-before-seen moments!
It showed heartfelt moments like Jana Kramer crying after last night’s performance and Vanilla Ice concerned that he let partner Witney Carson down.
Also, this was a highlight:
The best part was hearing the comments from the judges during the dances — Bruno Tonioli was all about the facial expressions and the “oops!” moments. Len Goodman was all about the “whoooo!”
Later in the night, Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough and Maks Chmerkovskiy took the floor together for the first time in around three years, said co-host Tom Bergeron.
Then, some results. The couple at the top (Laurie and Val) and the couple at the bottom (Rick and Emma) were both named safe! That was quite a shock!
More results revealed that Marilu Henner and Derek Hough were safe, while Maureen McCormick and Artem were in jeopardy. Ryan Lochte and Cheryl were also told they were in jeopardy. Another couple in jeopardy: Jake T. Austin and Jenna Johnson.
During the live show, we saw performances from Daya and Charlie Puth and Gavin DeGraw! They all sounded great!
In the end, someone had to be the first elimination of the season! Unfortunately, it was time to say goodbye to Jake and Jenna.
HollywoodLifers, are you surprised that Jake T. Austin was eliminated? Do you think he deserved to be sent home?
