Talk about jam packed show!
Every week, it seems Dancing With The Stars gets better and better and Monday night’s performances certainly kicked things up a notch with 3 PERFECT SCORES!
Of course there was a bit of other drama before our favorite celebs got their dance on as Val Chmerkovskiy broke down a bit talking about not wanting to let his partner, Laurie Hernandez, down! Val admitted:
“It’s crazy how fast life moves. Laurie brings the joy in everything. I don’t want to blow it for her.”
Don’t worry, they certainly didn’t blow it as Laurie and Chmerkovskiy earned a 30/30 with a Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory inspired number!
The other somewhat sad moment during the show happened when Sharna Burgess wasn’t able to perform with James Hinchcliffe and Jenna Johnson had to step in instead! Luckily for Hinchcliffe, Jenna was incredible as the pair earned a PERFECT score too!
Not enough for ya? Well, Calvin Johnson Jr. and Lindsay Arnold ALSO snagged a perfect score with their dance!
Unfortunately, someone had to be sent packing, and after the battle rounds went down and extra points were awarded to the winning pairs, Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke were eliminated. We knew it was bound to happen!
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing highlights from last night’s show (below) and let us know who you’re rooting for as we approach the finals!

Cheryl also wanted to show some love for her partner as she posted:
I couldn├óΓé¼Γäót have asked for a better homecoming season. I├óΓé¼Γäóm glad that the audience got to know Ryan as I got to know him ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ a man who was looking for redemption, acceptance and growth. While he may not have been the best dancer in the competition, he definitely had the biggest heart. I will forever be grateful for having gotten to know @RyanLochte and his beautiful family. #DWTS will always be my home. I came back to the show primarily because of my show Love on the Floor. Creating and producing and dancing in my own production made me realize how much I missed performing in front of an audience. It made me realize how much I missed connecting with people through dance. Being back on @DancingABC allowed me to renew those connections. Not knowing what the future holds I can only say that Dance is the most wonderful and beautiful form of communication and I├óΓé¼Γäóm so thankful that my job is getting to share my love of dance and communicate with all of you. You all make coming to work on DWTS everyday a blessing and we, #TeamCherloch, couldn├óΓé¼Γäót have done it without you.A photo posted by Cheryl Burke (@cherylburke) on Nov 1, 2016 at 3:46am PDT
Awww, so much love!
Do you think Burke and Lochte deserved to be sent home??
