Tonight was a double elimination on Dancing With the Stars, which means that the top 8 contestants were narrowed down to just 6 celebrities. So, which cast members were voted off the show tonight? The contestants eliminated were … Kim Fields and Von Miller.
The first couple announced as being in jeopardy tonight was Kim Fields with pro Sasha Farber, followed by Wanya Morris with Lindsay Arnold, and also Von Miller and Witney Carson. Wanya Morris was definitely a shock as he has been a front-runner this season. Upon hearing the news that he had been sent home, Miller went out with class as he thanked everyone and applauded his fellow competitors. Fields, on the other hand, was very upset as she fought back tears. She seemed to be very surprised and saddened by the announcement, especially after having such a good performance tonight.
The night was filled with unexpected comebacks as well as some mistakes. In addition, each contestant performed a second dance as part of a team. It was the men against the women tonight and each team competed in unison. Tonight was also a big night for Ginger Zee as she received the first perfect score of the season. This was a big change from her giant drop on the leader board last week where she tied for last place.
For tonight’s theme, the contestants took on “Icon Night,” where they performed to songs by legendary musicians. From Whitney Houston to Prince, each contestant gave it their all.
