Next, Hollywood Records artist and Disney Channel star Demi Lovato, took to the Dancing with the Stars stage with her hit, La La Land, from her first studio album, Don’t Forget, recently released on Hollywood Records (a deluxe version was re-released on March 31, 2009 with bonus features).

Currently starring in the Disney Channel hit, Sonny With a Chance, Demi Lovato shot to stardom when she appeared alongside the Jonas Brothers in the Disney Channel Original Movie, Camp Rock.

So far six couples were saved and the last three in the bottom were revealed with the final two performing in the Dance Off. The two couples with the lowest scores were David and Kym and Lawrence and Edyta while Ty and Chelsie were safe this week.
This week the bottom two couples facing elimination, determined by the lowest combined viewer votes and judges’ scores from Monday’s performance, performed a Dance Off to determine who was dismissed. The couples had a chance to perform Monday’s dance for new scores from the judges. The judges’ scores from the Dance Off performance replaced their Monday night scores. A combination of the new judges’ scores from the Dance Off dance, along with viewers votes from Monday’s show, were calculated following the Dance Off to determine the eliminated couple.
This week, the first couple to dance in the Dance Off was David and Kym. They performed their Viennesse Waltz again. Len said he enjoyed it last night and tonight and he thought that David was fully focused. Bruno said that David works well under pressure. Carrie Ann said that she felt the connection tonight. The judges gave them a score of 8, 8 and 8 a score of 24.
Next, Lawrence and Edyta danced their Pasodoble again. Bruno said that he thinks Lawrence has to go with the music. Carrie Ann said that she finds the music very difficult to dance to and enjoys watching his power. Len said that the music IS difficult and that Lawrence is really going to take off with a Jive or a Rumba. The judges gave them a score of 6, 7 and 7 a score of 20.
After combining the scores, David and Kym were leaving Dancing With The Starstonight and danced their last dance on the ballroom floor.
