Dancing with the Stars Week 10: Four Couples Advance to Semi-Finals

Dancing with the Stars Week 10: Four Couples Advance to Semi-Finals

Four remaining couples advance to the Semi-Finals on Dancing with the Stars on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16. After Tamar Braxton’s withdrawal from the competition, the pressure is on as each couple fights to make it to the finale. For the first time in Dancing with the Stars history, the couples have to dance three dances in the semi-finals: a dance style not yet danced, a trio, and a dance-off challenge. For each trio dance, the couples picked a dancer to enhance their performance and highlight the strengths of each star. Peta Murgatroyd returns to the ballroom this season to dance with Nick and Sharna; Karina Smirnoff will dance with Carlos and Witney; Bindi and Derek chose Mark Ballas to be in their trio; and Emma Slater will perform with Alek and Lindsay. For the dance-off challenge, Nick and Bindi will compete against each other, dancing a Samba, and Alek and Carlos will face-off, dancing a Cha Cha. The judges will score the dances, and each couple that wins the dance-off challenge will be awarded three additional points.
