"Dancing With the Stars" 2017 Elimination Predictions


UPDATE: The two contestants who were eliminated tonight were Nick Viall and Nancy Kerrigan. Click here for the details.


Tonight begins another week for season 24 of Dancing With the Stars, which means that another contestant from the season will be eliminated by the end of tonight's live episode. Actually, tonight is a double elimination, which means that TWO contestants will be sent home. The official ABC synopsis for tonight's episode reads: The seven remaining couples are presented with an all-new challenge, as they dance to celebrate “A Night at the Movies.” One couple will receive immunity; the remaining couples will compete in a Dance-Off; and a double elimination will take place at the end of the night ... The night will kick off with an exciting opening number, choreographed by four-time Emmy nominee Mandy Moore (“La La Land”), featuring all seven couples and the troupe dancing to “Let’s Go to the Movies.” Moore will also join Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba as a guest judge. Each couple will attempt to capture the spirit of a specific movie genre – western, romance, silent films, action, horror, sci-fi and foreign. The couple with the highest judges’ scores will receive immunity and be safe from the evening’s elimination, and they will not have to compete in a Dance-Off, which the remaining six couples will have to dance in for additional judges’ points in an attempt to help lift their scores. At the end of the night, based on the evening’s judges’ scores and votes from last Monday, two couples will say their goodbyes to the ballroom in a double elimination ... As an added bonus, Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Sofia Carson and Booboo Stewart perform a “Descendants”-themed medley featuring “Rotten to the Core,” from the original Disney Channel movie, and the latest high-energy pop-rock anthem, “Ways to Be Wicked,” from the upcoming sequel, “Descendants 2.” Before we get into our top predictions for celebrities who may be on the chopping block, here is the list of tonight's individual performances:
