One of Dancing With the Stars‘ most stacked Top Sixes in recent memory hit the ballroom floor on Monday night, all with their eyes on a spot in next week’s finale.
During the semifinals broadcast, the remaining six competitors — Wayne, Charli, Trevor, Daniel, Shangela and Gabby — each performed two routines with their partners. But there were no team dances, relays or dance marathons to fill that second round this time: Instead, it was simply the six couples dancing their usual duets, first in a final ballroom style, then in a final Latin dance style that they’ve not yet attempted.
Monday’s episode was also particularly bittersweet, as longtime head judge Len Goodman revealed that he’ll be stepping down after Season 31 concludes next week; get full details here.
It all wrapped up with Dancing‘s second consecutive double elimination, which revealed the Top 4 still in contention for that Mirrorball trophy.
