performance show. The judges selected Helio Castroneves & Julianne

Special guest Gloria Estefan performed "A Bailar" from her latest album, 90 Millas. After Estefan’s performance, Bergeron revealed that the first couple safe was Marie Osmond & Jonathan Roberts.
Jimmy Kimmel and his parking lot security guard answered a letter from a viewer about how Tom Bergeron told the difference between his two shows, America’s Funniest Home Videos and Dancing with the Stars. Special guest Fatima Robinson performed for Macy’s Stars of Dance.
After a segment on the background of the professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars, Gloria Estefan returned to perform “Conga.” As the four remaining couples waited on stage, Bergeron and Harris revealed that Helio Castroneves & Julianne Hough were the second couple that was safe.
As the three remaining couples waited on stage, the judges talked about each couple. Bergeron and Harris revealed that Melanie Brown & Maksim Chmerkovskiy were the third couple that was definitely safe. Bergeron announced that the couple with the lowest combined total and eliminated from the competition was Cameron Mathison & Edyta Sliwinska.
When Bergeron asked if there was a part of him that was going to like the time off, Cameron Mathison said “Honestly, I don’t know what I’m going to do with the time off to be frank. Not one single bit of me wanted to go home. I mean clearly this has been a great competition.”
