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 a sailor uniform, and then they upped the ante by ripping his shirt off! How could they NOT earn the high score after doing that??
Corbin Bleu had to deal with an extremely busy week as he works a side project, and Karina Smirnoff basically had to come up with a routine all by herself! But somehow the two made it work as they still earned a 27 for their AH-mazing argentine tango!
Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke put on one of their better performances of the season as they also earned a 27 for their tango, and the proud papa got high praise from Cher when she said "You looked like a pimp!" That's a good thing, right? LOLz!
As we previously mentioned, Brant Daugherty also found himself near the top for his foxtrot with Peta Murgatroyd, but unfortunately it wasn't enough to keep them from getting eliminated.
Leah Remini and Tony Dovoloni tugged at Cher's heart strings by recreating the moment she met Sonny Bono, earning a 25 for their viennese waltz, although we have to admit that's a risky choice considering some interesting comments she recently had for her late husband!
Leah also brought her A-list cheerleader along with her as Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend Casper Smart rooted for her from the audience!
Elizabeth Berkley found herself near the bottom after only earning an unusually low score of 25, despite putting on a great performance with Val Chmerkovskiy!
Bill Engvall and Emma Slater were the low scorers of the week as they only earned a 24, but the judges still couldn't help but praise their extremely fun disco dancing! And apparently they have won the fans over too, as they received enough votes to save them from elimination!
Overall it was another great week of performances, but based on the eliminations we've seen in the past couple of weeks, we have NO idea who will be left standing at the end!
Ch-ch-check out all of the performances (below)!
