So sad and scary.

This season has been so amazing, we aren't ready for it to be over!
Sadly, though, it has to end — and tonight we saw the crowning of another champion on Dancing With The Stars!
Despite a GREAT season with Bindi Irwin, Nick Carter, and Alek Skarlatos locked in a SUPER-tight battle for the Mirrorball Trophy, there can only be one winner — and now we know who it is!!!
All season long, Bindi has paid tribute to her late father, Steve Irwin, with various performances and routines, but last night may have been the best yet!
Not only did she have an AH-Mazingly beautiful performance, but her partner Derek Hough surprised the lil Aussie with an old photo of her and her father that brought Irwin to tears — not to mention everyone else!
Of course the pair scored 10s, but they weren't the only ones as Carter and his partner, Sharna Burgess, threw it back to his Backstreet Boys days to prove Nick is still Larger Than Life!
Ch-ch-check out the incredible performances (below) and find out who got the axe last night as we head into tonight's finale!
Don't try this at home!
As a result of Tamar Braxton unexpectedly exiting the hit dancing show last week, all the semi-finalists had to be a bit more creative Monday night in order to fill some time with extra dance routines!
Bindi decided to dance on the wild side during her trio performance by doing a routine that wrapped a rope around her neck and put the little Aussie in a box!
While Irwin's dancing partner Derek Hough showed concern, saying the routine was "dangerous," the 17-year-old didn't seem to mind. She explained:
"It was incredible to get to tell the story that Derek created for us this week. It's not just dance when we go out there, it's a complete story with characters and struggles."
Ch-ch-check out the incredibly wonderful and risky performance (below) as well as Val Chmerkovskiy giving the DWTS family an update on Braxton's condition!
Bindi Irwin's juggling a lot of different hats right now!
Not only is the Dancing With The Stars contestant a dotting daughter and girlfriend, but a dedicated dance partner too.
Both Bindi and Derek took to the picture sharing site and posted:
Alexa PenaVega's shot at the Mirrorball Trophy might not be over just yet!
The Real cohost's untimely exit from season 21 only leaves Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess, Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough, Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson, and Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold in the running for the final 5.
With the reality competition having more weeks on the air than eligible couples on the dance floor, ABC producers are reportedly talking about bringing back PenaVega — who was eliminated on Monday's show!
An inside source close to the production told PEOPLE:
We're just glad she's okay!
Insiders revealed that the 38-year-old has been suffering from pneumonia for a couple weeks and all the rehearsals and physical demands of the show had finally caught up to her.
Well if DWTS isn't dramatic enough, The Real panelist added a bit more shock and surprise when she made it to the show moments before she was supposed to perform — though she missed her individual routine.
Meanwhile, Derek Hough and everyone's favorite teenage Australian, Bindi Irwin, turned in ANOTHER stellar performance and scored all 10s as the couple performed the Viennese waltz — oh and Bindi was blindfolded!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing drama and performances (below) and let us know what you think about last night's show!
Is there anyone cuter?!
Last night on Dancing With The Stars, Bindi Irwin continued to be her adorable self by talking a bit about her hero Grace Kelly.
But she didn't stop there as she honored Kelly with her dance last night with partner Derek Hough!
Unfortunately Bindi didn't earn a perfect score, but we loved it regardless!
Luckily Nick Carter picked up the slack as his beautiful performance was so spot on that he earned a perfect score in a dance he dedicated to his wife, Lauren Kitt!
Ch-ch-check out the absolutely wonderful performances (below) and let us know who you're rooting for!
