The newest season of Dancing With the Stars forged on after Selma Blair’s heartbreaking exit due to her health, and another fan favorite had to say goodbye.
Since no one went home Monday night due to Selma bowing out, the scores carried over and co-host Alfonso Ribeiro announced the combined total score for each couple after they received their judges’ scores for Tuesday’s dance.
With all of the stars reliving their prom experiences, and some experiencing it for the first time, the dances as always ranged from good to bad and everything in between. After each pair danced, they all took the floor at the same time for a dance marathon. For the first part of the marathon, each duo could only dance in their assigned spot to the Hussle. Then once the song changed, they could work the room doing the Lindy Hop.
The marathon came down to Jessie and Alan and Shangela and Gleb. But Jessie and Alan danced until the end and earned the title of Dancing with the Stars Prom King and Queen, an honor that added 11 points to their total score. Shangela and Gleb still received 10 points on top of their total, and the rest of the pairs earned points in descending order according to when they went out.
In the end Joseph and Daniella and Heidi and Artem landed in the bottom two.
Derek voted to save Heidi and Artem, Carrie Ann cast her vote for Joseph and Daniella and Bruno opted for Heidi and Artem. Len decided to save Heidi and Artem, which meant Joseph and Daniella had to say goodbye.
“This was an incredible, incredible experience,” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son said. “I’m a little emotional because I love this so much. I love learning how to dance and I don’t think I’m going to stop. I love it so much.”
