DANCING WITH THE STARS starts to get serious come the half way point of the season and we are there! Couples are either slipping down the leader board or rising up to the challenge. Tonight, with famous movie or iconic music video night, it was make it or break it time. Unfortunately, Paula Deen & Louis van Amstel have broken their chances of making it ’til the end; they were the 9th duo eliminated. Not surprising, considering the competition has turned fierce with three perfect scores tonight – Andy Grammer & Allison Holker, Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough and Tamar Braxton & Val Chmerkovskiy. Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess narily missed a perfect score with 39 out of 40, while Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson missed the big 40 by two points. Hayes Grier & Emma Slater got perfect 8s while Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas and Alek Skarlatos & Lindsey Arnold received 30 points. Stay tuned!
