The finale of season 25 of Dancing With The Stars is right around the corner! This week four couples were remaining and each couple performed a redemption dance and a freestyle routine to show their individual story. Follow along as we recap everything that happened on last night’s episode and who was eliminated:

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold have lead the competition right from the beginning, which meant there was hardly a need for a redemption routine. Despite this, the duo decided to redeem their Charleston and their second attempt unsurprisingly landed them perfect 10’s. Their second dance incorporated all the stops with lots of lights and props and of course, they landed a perfect 10 again.

Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas decided to attempt their quickstep again in the redemption round and absolutely nailed it. For their freestyle, they pulled all the stops with a dramatic and sultry routine where Stirling incorporated violin playing into the routine. They landed a perfect 40.

Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson took a second stab at their foxtrot during the redemption round and Carrie Ann challenged Muniz to do a solo to improve his confidence. He pulled it off but definitely not on the same level as his competitors Stirling and Fisher. Their second routine was a risky, intense routine that the show’s producers initially advised against for something more lighthearted. Luckily, the judges were impressed and both routines landed Muniz a 38/40.

Drew Scott was definitely the underdog of the competition this season but continued to charm viewers with his lively personality. He and Emma decided to redo their paso doble and the judges declared him the most improved of the competition and rewarded him 9’s across the board. For their freestyle, the duo performed a high-energy routine to show off Drew’s enthusiasm. The judges awarded the routine a solid 39/40.

By the end of the night, host Tom Bergeon revealed that Jordan and Lindsay and Lindsey and Mark were confirmed to be in the finale episode, which meant Drew and Emma or Frankie and Witney were in jeopardy of being eliminated. Ultimately, it was Drew that was eliminated. “There’s no way I could have done anything that I did out here without her,” Drew said of his partner Emma Slater. “Thank you. Thanks to the judges. You made this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

The Dancing with the Stars finale airs Tuesday, November 21 at 8 pm on ABC.
