After Toby Keith's performance, we get a package of the judges' midseason critiques. Len says Kendra has potential, but her biggest challenge is mental. Carrie Ann thinks Petra doesn't transition well from one move to another. She thinks Hines should take more risks. Len and Carrie Ann both think Chris lacks musicality. Chelsea has been the biggest risk taker of the season, which means she could go a long way. Len says Ralph needs to be more fluid to be a contender. Carrie Ann thinks Kirstie's biggest problem is her stamina. Bruno says Romeo needs control to complement his passion.
Now back to the elimination. Petra and Dmitry have fallen far from two weeks ago, when they were at the top of the leader board. Both Chris and Cheryl, and Kirstie and Maks are in the bottom despite scoring their highest marks yet. So who's safe? It's Kirstie and Maks. Thank you, Dance Doctor Travolta!
About the two couples in jeopardy, Len says it's no wonder he's grumpy. He thinks there's no justice that either Petra and Chris might leave. Without further ado, it's announced that Petra and Dmitry are exiting the competition. Petra says it's been a life-changing journey for her and appreciates that people have been inspired to throw their own dances for the Happy Hearts Fund. Before they perform their super-awkward final dance, we get a few more minutes of confirmation that Petra and Dmitry are the hottest couple that have ever hit this show. They love each other like brother and sister, blah blah blah. I'm cutting off the sound now and just ogling.
