'Dancing with the Stars' Semi-Final Results: One Incredible Dancer Leaves Too Soon

No matter who goes home in the Dancing with the Stars season 14 semi-finals, it's the wrong person. The four celebrity dancers remaining to perform this week are all so good that any one of them could win, and any one of them could go home. Find out who gets that sad farewell here!

Before the results come our way, we have a brief moment left to guess who the eliminated semi-finalist will be. We'll probably be wrong, of course. It's hard to be right when only three points separate first and last place:

  1. Maria Menounos and Derek Hough -- 59 points
  2. William Levy and Cheryl Burke -- 58 points
  3. Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd -- 57 points
  4. Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas -- 56 points
Who did the BuddyTV readers pick? According to our poll, 60 percent of readers chose Donald and Peta as the dancers most in danger of elimination. Maria and Derek were next up to go (20 percent), trailed by William and Cheryl (11 percent) and Katherine and Mark (9 percent).

Did you forget anything about last night's Dancing with the Stars semi-final performances? Remind yourself with our recap! 

Will our predictions prove accurate? Let's find out!

Brooke Burke-Charvet is wearing a dress that looks like it's partially made out of a xylophone.

William and Cheryl's samba (the jungle one, as indicated by the presence of a tree) gets the encore performance tonight. As practically the only dancers with no reported injuries, this makes perfect sense.

That done, it's time for the first RESULTS of the night!

First up, we've got Katherine and Mark. Which of course means we have to see that painful ending again... It still looks horrible.

Honestly, after all of that crying, they'd better say she's safe. It would be just plain mean otherwise.


Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas are SAFE!!!

Based on the excited screaming and jumping into Mark's arms, it's a safe bet that Katherine is feeling much better now.

In order to fill some time before we get more results, the remaining professionals get some time to talk about the remaining celebrities. They're all very complimentary. Shocker, I know.

Next to fill even more time, we get to watch Katherine's accident. In slow motion. With Brooke's commentary.

And again.

Make it stop!!! PLEASE!!!

Now for the Macy's Design-a-Dance. This season, it's a samba to Beyonce's "End of Time." The performance will be danced by Tristan MacManus and Chelsie Hightower.

Next in the non-stop parade of things to postpone the results announcements, Alanis Morissette has shown up to perform.

What's this? More RESULTS! Could it be?

Apparently it could. Maria and Derek are the next ones slated to hear their fate.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough remain in jeopardy.

Oh well. That was anti-climactic.

Dancing with the Stars is now taking the time to promote the new Rock of Ages movie. Which is coming out... Ummm... Sometime? Sorry, I wasn't listening. And I don't care enough to go check. This is what Wikipedia is for people!

But Julianne Hough is in it, so at least there's a legitimate relationship.

Are we getting more results? No, of course not. There are still 16 minutes remaining in the Results Show. It's way too early to learn anything.

Instead, we get to enjoy the vocal stylings of Carrie Underwood.

Theoretically, they're about to give results to William & Cheryl and Donald & Peta. But I wouldn't count on it. Not with 11 minutes to go until the end.

Never mind! RESULTS!!!

At least for one of the couples. The other couple will have to wait a few more minutes.

William Levy and Cheryl Burke are SAFE!!!

Which means...

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd remain in jeopardy.

Because we have actually run out of time (believe it or not), it's time for the final RESULTS in the Dancing with the Stars season 14 semi-finals.

And those results are...

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd are SAFE!!!

Which means

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough have been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars!

128393_2299_pre.jpgSo that's that. Goodbye Maria! Goodbye Maria's insane laugh!

This leaves Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas, William Levy & Cheryl Burke, and Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd are in the Dancing with the Stars season 14 finals!

And they all deserve it.
