Another week, another double elimination…

Seems like we have had an awful lot of those on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars. This one, however, may be the most important of all. The five remaining semi-finalists have to be cut down to only three finalists. So which two have to go?

Based on Monday night’s dances and on the results we have seen throughout this all-star season, it really could be anybody. Oh well. That just means we are in for thrills tonight!

Or are we? Maybe we have already guessed exactly who will be eliminated and who will become a finalist on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars? A quick check of the BuddyTV Readers’ Poll indicates that 48 percent of voters on this site think that Emmitt and Cheryl are the most likely couple to face elimination. They are followed by Kelly and Val (37 percent) and Apolo and Karina (15 percent). 

Those numbers could be right. Those numbers could be wrong. Only the Results Show can say which way it all goes. So let’s get to it!

After all that crazy dancing, what dance could possibly qualify to be the encore? That would be Apolo and Karina’s rumba. I would have gone with Melissa and Tony’s Argentine tango personally. But that’s probably because I didn’t like this dance as much as the judges did.

Not that it’s a bad dance. It’s actually a very good dance. I just liked some of the others better.

First up for their RESULTS, we have: Shawn & Derek. Just Shawn & Derek.

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough are SAFE and will be in the DWTS: All-Stars Finals!!!

That’s probably all of the results we will get for at least a little while. Dancing with the Stars wants to show off its musical performances — Paula Abdul and then The Wanted — and all. And putting off results is good for ratings.

Or maybe not? The next two couples waiting for their RESULTS are Apolo & Karina, Melissa & Tony.

But first! We have one of those AT&T Stars of Dance things. This one focuses on Parris Goebbel, a New Zealander dancer who taught herself hip hop as a kid. She has choreographed for Jennifer Lopez and stuff.

She’s actually kind of amazing.

Moving on to things that are also not results, it’s time for a performance by The Wanted. These are apparently the reigning “bad boys” of boy-band music. There isn’t much competition.

At least the music is catchy.

Oh hey! RESULTS! And these are serious, important results. One of the perfect scorers is going home! This one is between Apolo & Karina and Melissa & Tony

Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff have been eliminated in the semi-finals of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars!!!

Also, and this is kind of important —

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani are SAFE and will be in the DWTS: All-Stars Finals!!!

That’s it for results for now. They’re definitely going to wait until close to the end of the show before we find out the fates of Emmitt and Kelly.

Until then, we have another musical performance. This one comes from Paula Abdul, who has put together a multi-media medley consisting of four of her biggest hits. Everyone get ready to flash back to the late ’80s!

That finished, they’re letting Derek Hough put on a contemporary performance with a bunch of SYTYCD alums and others.

Has the show procrastinated enough now? Yes. Yes, it has. Time for the final RESULTS of the semi-finals night! This is between Kelly & Val and Emmitt & Cheryl.


Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke have been eliminated in the semi-finals of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars!!!

Which means that

Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy are SAFE and will be in the DWTS: All-Stars Finals!!!

So there you have it. Apolo and Emmitt are gone. Shawn, Melissa and Kelly are in the finals. Are you OK with these results? Who do you now think will win the whole season? Leave your comments below!
