Find out Who Hung up Their Dancing Shoes on 'DWTS' Season 31 (SPOILERS)
Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 31 of Dancing With the Stars.
We hope you all put on your (metaphorical) dancing shoes because Dancing With the Stars is back for another year! However, unlike previous installments, Season 31 ditched the cable broadcast and found itself a new home on Disney Plus.
The one thing that remains the same is that each celebrity and their professional dancing partner will compete for the coveted Mirror Ball trophy. Now, with a season full of capable participants, like TikTok star Charli D'Amelio, comedian Wayne Brady, and The Bachelorette's Gabby Windey, there's bound to be plenty of intense competition every week.
Speaking of the dance competition, viewers can also expect to see many jaw-dropping eliminations. Who went home so far on DWTS Season 31? Keep reading to find out.
Week 9 (Nov. 14): Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater *AND* Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart
The Nov. 14 semifinals brought yet another double elimination after the remaining six couples performed two dances each. At the bottom this week were Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater, Shangela and Gleb Savchenko, and Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Trevor and Emma were the first couple to get sent home after their cha cha and Viennese waltz earned them the lowest judges' scores and votes of the night. With just one couple able to be saved, the judges unanimously voted to keep Shangela and Gleb, thereby sending Britt and Daniel home.
Week 8 (Nov. 7): Heidi D’Amelio and Artem Chigvintsev *AND* Vinny Guadagnino and Koko Iwasaki
'90s Night of Dancing With the Stars brought some of the best performances we've seen all season, so it came as quite a shock when two couples were sent home at the end of the show.
Following a contemporary routine to Alanis Morissette's “Ironic,” Heidi D’Amelio and Artem Chigvintsev were the first couple to get eliminated based on viewer votes alone.
Left standing in the bottom were Vinny Guadagnino and Koko Iwasaki (who earned the lowest judges' score of the night with 29 out of 40), and Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater (who earned the second lowest with 34 out of the 40.)
The judges unanimously voted to save Trevor and Emma, sending Vinny and Koko home.
Week 7 (Oct. 31): Jordin Sparks and Brandon Armstrong
Despite getting praise for her "spirited" tango to "Oogie Boogie’s Song" (not to mention, a score of 36 out of 40), Jordin Sparks still found herself in the bottom two, along with Heidi D’Amelio. Though there was a tie among the judges for who to save, Len voted for Heidi due to her consistency throughout the competition. His vote as head judge ultimately sent Jordin home.
Week 6 (Oct. 24): Jessie James Decker and Alan Bersten
Along with Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater, Jessie and Alan found themselves in the bottom two after perforning a salsa to Michael Buble's “Come Dance With Me.” Despite getting comments on her improvements week after week, Jessie still earned one of the lowest scores of the night (41 out of 50). Ultimately, Len cast the deciding vote to save Trevor and Emma, which sent Jessie and Alan home.
Week 5, Episode 2 (Oct. 18): Joseph Baena and Daniella Karagach
Though despite not being in the bottom two based on judges scores alone, it was Joseph Baena who was sent home in the second episode of Week 5. While his cha cha to “Shut Up and Dance” earned praise from the judges (yes, even Len!), the judges ultimately chose to save Heidi D’Amelio over Joseph.
Week 5, Episode 1 (Oct. 17): Selma Blair and Sasha Farber
One of the most touching performers of the entire season has undoubtedly been Selma Blair, who fans have watched battle it out each week as she has continued to struggle with her MS. Sadly, on Monday, Oct. 17, Selma announced that the competition was becoming too hard on her body. "I can’t go on with the competition," she said. "My body is definitely taking a hit."
Before leaving the show, Selma was able to perform one last dance, and it definitely did not disappoint. Her breathtaking waltz to "What the World Needs Now Is Love" earned her a perfect 10 from all of the judges.
Week 4 (Oct. 10): Sam Champion and Cheryl Burke
After being saved last week by the judges, Sam Champion and Cheryl Burke were sent home during Dancing With the Stars' Disney Plus Night. Earning only 25 out of 40, the couple got the lowest score of the night for their paso doble to “The Greatest Show” from The Greatest Showman.
While Derek Hough said he couldn't "help but root" for Sam, Bruno noted that the meteorologist nearly dropped Cheryl at the end of their dance. Sadly, despite Sam's best efforts, the judges voted to save Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater over Sam and Cheryl.
Week 3 (Oct. 3): Cheryl Ladd and Louis van Amstel
It was James Bond week and sadly for Cheryl Ladd and Louis Van Amstel, they would not be able to
die dance another day. After dancing the Rumba to "Diamonds Are Forever” from the Sean Connery Bond film of the same name, the couple only received 23 points.
The judges decided to save Sam Champion and Cheryl Burke over Cheryl and Louis in an unanimous vote.
Week 2 (Sept. 26): Teresa Giudice and Pasha Pashkov
Week Two brought us a night of Elvis-themed routines, but for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giuduce, the night ended more like "Heartbreak Hotel" than "Can't Help Falling in Love."
Teresa's jive to "All Shook Up" earned her the second-lowest score of the night, with just 23 out of 40. While the judges agreed that her performance was "lively" and a big improvement from last week, there were still far "too many faults." In the end, the judges chose to save Cheryl Ladd and Louis Van Amstel over Teresa and Pasha.
Week 1 (Sept. 19): Jason Lewis and Peta Murgatroyd
Sadly for Sex and the City fans, Jason Lewis was the first star eliminated from Season 31 after the judges unanimously chose to save Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giuduce. With a score of 18 out of 40, Jason failed to impress the judges or the voting audience with his cha cha set to Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."
Derek felt that Jason's cha cha had too many heel leads, while Carrie Ann told him that, while he has charisma, he needs to breathe and relax. Len, in his typical Len-like way, called the performance "very disappointing."
