The results are in! After last night’s dramatic ballroom showdown, with one star bidding a sad farewell, we have our mirror ball trophy finalists. Drumroll please…..the Dancing With the Stars Season 17 finalists are Amber Riley, Corbin Bleu, Jack Osbourne and…Bill Engvall?
That’s right, peeps, ex-Scientologist Leah Remini was the celeb to get the axe last night on DWTS after delivering mediocre attempts at a Paso doble and an Argentine tango. The judges weren’t totally on board with either performance, and gave the pair a respective 32 and 34 points out of a possible 40. I would say that at this stage in the game, the dances must be near-flawless, but Bill Engvall has been busy proving me wrong the last couple of weeks.In spite of consistent low scores, he did manage to beat out the more talented Leah Remini and snag one of the coveted finalist spots.
Other notable performances included Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke’s Argentine tango that earned them a well-deserved 38 points, with judge Bruno Tonioli surprising no one anywhere by saying, “I want to kiss you.”Amber Riley and Derek Hough brought Carrie Ann Inaba to tears with their second number, and Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff earned perfect scores for their rumba that was sealed with a kiss.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night, however, was when Maksim Chmerkovskiy took the table as a guest judge, and holy sh*t is that man gorgeous. Sorry. That was really unprofessional of me, but when it comes to my pretend boyfriend Maks, I just can’t help it. I’ll try though. Unlike me, Maksim, who once called Dancing With the Stars HIS show, was able to keep it professional, even with his ex-fiancee twirling around on the dance floor. He offered up plenty of praise to the celebrities and their partners, and he kept his cool when Bruno acted like Bruno and got all touchy-feely. Who could blame him though?
The battle continued next week, and as we head into the final rounds, the competition is going to be fiercer than ever. And spoiler alert: Bill Engvall has promised to do a shirtless number. Try to contain yourselves, ladies.
What did you think of last night’s episode? Did Leah deserve to go? Which celeb is going to take home the trophy? Tell us in the comments!
