Seven became six last night on Dancing With the Stars, as we had to say goodbye to yet another couple. But on the upside, we did get to see some AMAZING dances and the highest scores of the season!\n\n\n\n'DWTS' Routines\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=ed9WTFptpCY\nSean Spicer and Jenna Johnson dance a jazz on Dancing With the Stars Season 28 \n\n\n\nSean and Jenna\n\n\n\nNo, we didn't make a mistake! Lindsay's mother-in-law unexpectedly passed away over the weekend, so she took some time off to be with her family. Jenna stepped in this week (though we we wondering why it wasn't Daniella, since she's the female "rotating pro") and somehow managed to get Sean Spicer to stay on time for once with this jazz routine. The dance as a whole was very bare-bones, though, and once again he just kind of walked through it.\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: 7Len: 7Bruno: 6TOTAL: 20\/30\n\n\n\nDo you think Dancing With The Stars has a racism problem? Here are our thoughts! \n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=QGyiYpAb89g\nLauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko dance a jive on Dancing With the Stars Season 28 \n\n\n\nLauren and Gleb\n\n\n\nThe former American Idol finalist continued to fight through her rib injuries this week, and managed to do a pretty good jive. However, like with a lot of her other dances, there were flashes when she seemed totally lost as to what to do next, as if she was completely taken out of the dance a couple of times.\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: 8Len: 8Bruno: 8TOTAL: 24\/30\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=AImv1HcvUsA\nKel Mitchell and Witney Carson dance a salsa on Dancing With the Stars Season 28 \n\n\n\nKel and Witney\n\n\n\n"This Is How We Do It" isn't a very fitting song for a salsa, but these two somehow managed to not only make it work, but deliver an amazing enough routine to get a "10" paddle out of Bruno! Kel has been improving a lot over the course of the season, and at this ate we may be seeing him in the finale!\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: 9Len: 9Bruno: 9TOTAL: 28\/30\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=31tpPl2_Ksc\n Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber dance a Paso Doble on Dancing With the Stars Season 28 \n\n\n\nAlly and Sasha\n\n\n\nAlly danced a Paso Doble to her own song, "Higher", this week...and it was totally and completely on POINT! We could feel her connection to the music and her technique was also strong. And her tearful reaction to her perfect score was such a special moment!\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: 10Len: 10Bruno: 10TOTAL: 30\/30\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=PxBlsDc-i0Q\nHannah Brown and Alan Bersten dance a quickstep on Dancing With the Stars Season 28 \n\n\n\nHannah and Alan\n\n\n\nAfter the comments she received last week, Hannah was determined to come back stronger, and that she did! She had amazing energy and just the right amount of power in this quickstep. But best of all, joy was absolutely radiating from her as she danced it!\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: 10Len: 9Bruno: 10TOTAL: 29\/30\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=IEJFZIv5Bac\nKate Flannery and Pasha Pashkov dance a jive on Dancing With the Stars Season 28 \n\n\n\nKate and Pasha\n\n\n\nKate's jive this week was dedicated to her sister, Nancy, who passed away shortly before Kate signed on to do DWTS. The majority of the dance was fantastic, but there were several instances when Kate was noticeably off time or awkward.\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: 8Len: 8Bruno: 8TOTAL: 24\/30\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=4MEWE__o7Uk\nJames Van Der Beek and Emma Slater dance a contemporary on Dancing With the Stars Season 28\n\n\n\nJames and Emma\n\n\n\nFor this week, James danced a contemporary that evoked tears from his family who was in the DWTS studio audience watching him dance it live. The judges clearly loved it as well! In addition to his great scores, he was also awarded two extra points and was exempt from the dance-off round due to having the highest cumulative total scores of the season thus far.\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: 10Len: 10Bruno: 10TOTAL: 30\/30\n\n\n\n'DWTS' Dance-Offs\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=MlEiu44Z288\n Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber vs. Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson in a Dancing With the Stars jive dance-off \n\n\n\nThe other six couples were paired off and assigned a style to battle each other head-to-head in for the judges, who would subsequently vote for a winner to receive two extra points. First up were Ally and Sasha vs. Kel and Witney dancing the jive. Both did very well, but Ally danced "smaller" and seemed a little unsure of herself at time, while Kel was always on it and just let go.\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: Kel and WitneyLen: Ally and SashaBruno: Kel and WitneyWINNERS: Kel and Witney (new score 30\/30)\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=WA63w-6VCiU\n Kate Flannery and Pasha Pashkov vs. Sean Spicer and Jenna Johnson in a Dancing With the Stars cha-cha dance-off \n\n\n\nNext up was a cha-cha battle between Kate and Pasha and Sean and Jenna. We don't even think we need to tell you who won that one, but here's a hint: it was the only couple who actually danced a true cha-cha!\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: Kate and PashaLen: Kate and PashaBruno: Kate and PashaWINNERS: Kate and Pasha (new score 26\/30)\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=DIF-euSOnng\nHannah Brown and Alan Bersten vs. Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko in a Dancing With the Stars salsa dance-off\n\n\n\nFinally, Hannah and Alan salsa battled against Lauren and Gleb. Hannah continued her amazing night by jumping right into the dance and never letting up, while Lauren continued her so-so night by dancing decently, but with less power and purpose (and with weaker choreography).\n\n\n\nCarrie Ann: Hannah and AlanLen: Hannah and AlanBruno: Hannah and AlanWINNERS: Hannah and Alan (new score 31\/30) \n\n\n\n'DWTS' Elimination\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=9QWmyyN-8Lc\nThe Dancing With the Stars Season 28 Week 8 elimination\n\n\n\nAt the end of the show, the bottom two couples were revealed to be Ally and Sasha and Kate and Pasha. (Yes, Sean was safe again. Yes, seeing strong dancers leave every week is getting straight-up depressing. But no, we aren't shocked this keeps happening. Particularly bad dancers are notorious for making it far on this show, especially in recent seasons.) The judges unanimously saved the former (though not with some name confusion between the two pros) meaning Kate and Pasha were eliminated from the competition in seventh place.\n\n\n\nWhat was your favorite dance from this week's episode?
