Results night on “Dancing with the Stars” brought twists and shocking revelations for celebrities, pro dancers, and fans on week six of the dancing reality competition.
After an encore performance of a Viennese Waltz by Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff, host Tom Bergeron announced the first results. The lowest scoring couple of Emmitt and Cheryl are safe. They were joined by the second lowest scoring couple Kelly and Valentin.
The first guest performance of the night was from Grammy Award winning singer Jason Mraz who performed “I Won’t Give Up” as Chelsie and Mark danced.
Derek announced that due to a neck injury, he would not be dancing next week, but has asked friend Mark Ballas to step in. Mark was Shawn’s original partner when she won the mirrorball in season 10. Shawn and Derek are safe.
Giles and Peta and Kristie and Maks are also safe. With the first five couples announced safe it meant that the top three scoring couples were in jeopardy and one of them would be going home.
The Macy’s Stars of Dance paid tribute to the French Revolution with a high flying routine.
On performance night, host Tom Bergeron announced that next week the couples would be performing a fusion dance. A fusion dance is one song and two different dances. The second twist of the night was that the couples would once again be choosing the dances for each other.
