DWTS Season 9: Down to 9

I want more group dances! How fun was that hustle? Another group dance is on the schedule for Tuesday – this one a tribute from the pros to Michael Jackson. Oh, and there’s the business at hand: one couple will be eliminated. That and more in the recap!

BREAKING NEWS: Kelly suffered a sprained foot and contusion but will be able to keep dancing.

The judges chose Donny & Kym’s Argentine tango to start the show.

Nora Jones performed her new song “It’s Gonna Be.”

The top three scorers take the stage for the first elimination. Mark & Lacey are safe. Donny & Kym are safe. Mya & Dmitry are safe.

A taped piece shows what happens when the stars show up on Monday. There’s a lot of makeup, spray tanning, hair, food. It was dizzying to watch.

The three couples who tied with 24 points take the stage. Joanna & Derek are in jeopardy. Kelly & Louis are safe. Aaron & Karina are in jeopardy.

The next couples learn their fate: Michael & Anna are safe. Natalie & Alec are in jeopardy.

Norah Jones performed her hit “Come Away With Me.”

The last two couples learn their fate: Louis & Chelsie are safe. Melissa & Mark are in jeopardy.

Now, the much-awaited tribute to Michael Jackson. Jermaine and LaToya, a DWTS singer who performed with Michael and the pros talked about how inspired they were by Michael. His family says he was a fan of the show. LaToya talked about Michael’s love of dance and how proud he would be of the pros shared enthusiasm for dance. Then, the pros did their thing. You can watch it here.

Last elimination.

Melissa & Mark are safe. Joanna & Derek are safe.

Aaron & Karina and Natalie & Alec are the bottom two. The judges were not happy. Bruno said he can’t believe they’re there. He says Aaron is one of the best competitors and showed he can get into character. Carrie Ann was disappointed. She said Natalie has an ability to mix strength and flexibility with fluidity. Len said he’s heartbroken not just for the judges but also for the couples who don’t deserve to be there.

The couple going home is: Natalie & Alec.

What’s the deal voters? You know you’re supposed to vote for the couple you want to stay in the competition, right? Big boo to those of you keeping the bad dancers around!

Next week, the couples will take part in a competition mambo until they’re knocked out. Two couples will be eliminated. Taylor Swift will perform on elimination night. Whew! That’s a lot to look forward to! See you next week!
