Talk about heartbreak!
Monday night’s Dancing With The Stars was a doozy — and not just because it was the episode leading up to the finals!
While we’ve had PLENTY of spectacular moments all season, last night somehow raised the bar again as we received a few flawless performances, including a couple from Laurie Hernandez and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy!
But it wasn’t all good times as one of the most heartbreaking moments of the season came when the video package for Hernandez’s dance showed the Olympian visiting her grandma, Brunilda Hernandez, for what would be the last time. The 16-year-old’s grandma suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and passed away the day after their interview. The young athlete was visibly upset and even broke down after her dance. Awww!
Unfortunately, there was bad news on the dancing front as well as one unlucky couple had to be sent home. Sadly Terra Jol├â┬⌐ and Sasha Farber were cut DESPITE earning a perfect score for their rumba AND their team up dance! YIKES!
Ch-ch-check out all the highlights (below) from Laure’s last interaction with her grandma to all the incredible performances, and let us know who you’re rooting for in the finals!
