It now feels pretty safe to declare two frontrunners on Dancing With the Stars. Sort of.
Week eight finally handed out some 10s, with Kel Mitchell and Hannah Brown each earning some, while James Van Der Beek and Ally Brooke earned the season’s very first perfect scores. It feels like either one of them could take home the win, even though Ally then lost her dance off to Kel, and then landed in the bottom two.
Just to repeat that, Ally got a perfect score, then landed in the bottom two, which only meant that Kate Flannery, the other member of the bottom two, was the only choice to send home.
How few votes did Ally get to put her in the bottom? That’s just the question we keep asking ourselves week after week, the more evidence we get that the voting here makes no sense. What are we voting for??
Anyway, Kate and Pasha have now been sent home, and a final six remains: James and Emma, Ally and Sasha, Kel and Witney, Lauren and Gleb, and Sean and Lindsay (who was absent tonight due to the death of her mother in law, so Jenna Johnson took her place).
We’re keeping track of all the scores below, as if the scores even matter anymore.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
