This week, Dancing With The Stars took us back to the ’80s. The contestants donned big hair and bright colors, going all-in with this week’s theme. The night also saw the first contemporary routine of the season, alongside ballroom and jazz, thanks to figure skater Johnny Weir. The routine earned him the highest scores of the season so far.

While Weir and his partner Britt Stewart took the top spot, Jesse Metcalfe and Sharna Burges fell to the bottom and were sent home. The other couple in the Bottom 2 was Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd. Thankfully, there were no scoring screw-ups this week. The judges, now having the final say on eliminations, decided to send Metcalfe and Burges home.
