We're only one week away from the semifinals on DWTS, and the contestants are DEFINITELY stepping up their game!
There are only six teams remaining and only five can move on to next week, but the dance floor was unusually crowded as each couple got a chance to pick a troupe dancer to do a trio routine!
Corbin Bleu picked Witney Carson to help out with his performance, and while they seemed to hit things off during rehearsals, Karina Smirnoff was worried that
What happens when you mix Cher with Dancing With The Stars??
We're not 100% sure, but we think that's how angels are born!!
This week, DWTS paid tribute to the iconic singer and let her sit at the judges table, which means competitors were sure to bring their A-game for the legendary performer!
In a not-so-shocking turn of events, Amber Riley and Derek Hough were once again the high scoring duo of the week after earning 28 for their rumba!
However, they kind of had a trick up their sleeve as they had Derek come out in
There are only 7 teams left on DWTS, and things are starting to get SERIOUS!!
Not surprisingly, Amber Riley and Derek Hough found themselves at the top of the pyramid with a paso doble that was so flawless we thought Carrie Ann's head might explode!
After a tough outing last week,
It looks like Corbin Bleu is bringing a little bit of Westeros to Dancing With The Stars!
This week, the young star took on the Viennese waltz, and when his partner Karina Smirnoff told him they would be dancing to the Game of Thrones theme, he got a HUGE nerd boner!!
And we can't say that we blame him!
The two went all out as they dressed up as Khal Drogo and Daenerys and danced on an awesome set that came complete with an Iron Throne! Corbin even spoke a little Dothraki, but we have a feeling he didn't learn that for the competition! LOLz!!
Despite being one of the strongest teams throughout the season, the two got an unusually low score of a 23, but they were bumped up to a 27 after they won the Switch It Up challenge!
In the end it didn't really seem to matter though, because Corbin just looked happy that he got a chance to dress up as Khal Drogo!
Ch-ch-check out their nerd-tastic performance (above)!
What better way to spend an evening in Sin City than setting a world record (and probably getting paid to do it!!)?
We should ask Dancing With The Stars' Cheryl Burke and Karina Smirnoff (and her abs), because that's TOTES the night they just had! They grabbed 125 people and set the Guinness World Records for longest beach-ball bounce in history!
It all went down at the Encore Beach Club at Wynn Las Vegas, and was part of POM Wonderful's launch of three new Juice Blends.
How a celebration for juice turns into a world record… we may never know!
Congrats guys! We can't wait for the new season!!

It's official: Karina Smirnoff's abs have left the real world, jumped to the cover of FitnessRX magazine, and then right into our eyeballs where they'll be turned into happy dreams for all eternity!
Okay that got a little weird, but we're just SUPER JELLY of that tone! She looks sooooo sexy!
Who would've though dancing was such a good workout?? LOLz!
The cover (above) is a perfect storm of tight pants, a sports bra and sneakers. We seriously can't stop looking at it — nor do we want to! Heading into season 17 of Dancing With The Stars, it's THAT kind of body that will help you to the end!
Good luck, girl!! This season is gonna be cray!!

Cheryl Burke, Kym Johnson (except she's leaving!), Karina Smirnoff, and Sharna Burgess — what do they have in common other than being on Dancing With The Stars?
They were all at the DWTS beach party, of course!
They four lovely ladies looked pretty flawless with a pretty flawless beach backdrop behind them, gearing up for the new season and taking a break from all their training and practicing!
Nothing than a little pre-season party to get your mind right!! Lookin' good, ladies!
Check out the rest of the pics (below)!
