After the commercial, Nico and Vinz performed their hit song "Am I Wrong?" and ValPeta, and Karina performed sultry number onstage. Then the next round of couples were sent to find out if they would be safe or in jeopardy this week. Tommy and Peta and Jonathan and Allison were told they were safe. Michael and Emma however, were told that they were in jeopardy.

This week Judge Len Goodman nominated two numbers for the encore performance. This week the couples up for the encore was Janel and Val and Lea and Artem. The hosts then asked viewers to select the couple to perform via Twitter. Janel and Val won and performed their stunning Foxtrot once again!

The third round of eliminations was next, Janel and Val and Bethany and Derek were told they were safe for another week. Then as a surprise to most, Sadie and Mark were told they were in jeopardy. They were not in the bottom three with the judges scores so the audience seemed a little surprised that they were in jeopardy.

Up next, Sia performed her hit song "Chandelier." Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler and female pro Allison Holker performed to the song.

Host Tom Bergeron then had some exciting news to share: Kevin Hart will be a guest judge on next week's episode! In the final round of couples to find out their fate, Alfonso and Witney were safe, along with Antonio and Cheryl. The final couple to find out that they were in jeopardy was Tavis Smiley and Sharna.

The final performance of the night was by Judge Julianne Hough and the male pro dancers. Hough was originally a female pro on the show before becoming a judge. Her outfit was almost a little too hot for primetime tv! 


Then it was time for the final elimination of the night. Many believed that Michael and Emma would be sent home this week but they found out they were safe. Going home this week...Tavis Smiley and Sharna.

Do you think the right couple was sent home this week?
