Two couples – Nastia Liukin & Derek Hough and Riker Lynch & Allison Holker – earned perfect scores tonight with 70 out of a possible 70 points. Right behind them is Rumer Willis & Val Chmerkovskiy with 68 points and near them is Noah Galloway & Sharna Burgess with 66 points. Tomorrow night one couple is eliminated and three go to the finals next week. Stay tuned.
