'Dancing with the Stars' recap: Threesomes lead to an UNBELIEVABLE goodbye!
Another week comes to offer us some toe-tapping, nail-biting fun via Dancing with the Stars. It's Season 17, week 9 and everyone is STILL wondering if this will finally be the week that Bill Engvall and Emma Slater will be eliminated. Of course before we get to who goes home, we'll have to watch the top 6 couples shake their money makers to the beat and we also get to witness a second routine where each couple invites a second pro or dance troupe member to perform a threesome set to music. That's a whole lot of work for everyone involved.

Okay, let's talk about the couples dances, shall we? Amber and Derek had some issues and they scored an 8, 8, and 8, but even with an injured knee Amber is a pleasure to watch. Leah and Tony tangoed and I was not crazy about it, but the crazy judges gave them a 9, 9, and 9. Corbin and Karina mesmerized with their slow waltz and the judges showed their appreciation by giving them a 9, 9, and 10. Jack and Cheryl killed their Viennese waltz and should have gotten a perfect score because I love watching Jack dance, but they got a 10, 10, and 9 (Bruno was booed for giving the 9). Bill and Emma were pretty bad, cute, but super bad at their Charleston and they got a 7, 7, and 7, which was kind of generous in my opinion. Elizabeth and Val performed a beautiful Viennese waltz, but the judges missed the beauty and gave them a 9, 8, and 9.
And then the threesomes or trios if you prefer. Amber, Derek, and Mark Ballas did a fabulous salsa that scored a 9, 9, and 9. Leah, Tony, and Henry Byalikov appealed to the judges' vanity by impersonating them in their humorous jive and scored a 9, 9, and 9. Corbin, Karina, and Witney Carson jazzed it up so perfectly, they scored 10s across the board. Jack, Cheryl, and Sarna Burgess did a delightful samba that was anything but perfect and yet still fun to watch; they scored an 8, 8, and 9. Bill, Emma, and Peta Murgatroyd did a sloppy candy-coated salsa that channeled Willy Wonka and scored a 7, 7, and 7. Elizabeth, Val, and Gleb Savchenko did a spectacular salsa that really made Elizabeth shine and they got perfect 10s.
So who was eliminated? Ugh!!! The couple that was eliminated just goes to show that there is NO justice in Dancing with the Stars. After getting a perfect score on their trio performance Elizabeth and Val were given their walking papers and eliminated.
