Jill O'Rourke | Talent Recap

Dancing with the Stars Season 29 continued on Monday night with the fourth week of competition. The show opened with a parody PSA about the stars feeling hurt by the judges’ comments.

The night featured a dance from Skai Jackson paying tribute to her late co-star Cameron Boyce. It earned her the first 10 of the season. Skai encouraged viewers to donate to the Cameron Boyce Foundation in his memory.


Voting was open during the show, and at the end of the night, the third couple of the season was eliminated. Check out this week’s dances below, and find out who went home this time.

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Results: Which Star Went Home This Week?

After combining the judges’ scores with the audience votes, we learned that the bottom two couples this week were Anne Heche and Monica Aldama. (There was a confusing moment when Monica was wrongly named as safe.) The judges voted for which couple to save. They chose to save Monica and Val, meaning Anne Heche went home tonight.
