Watch Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas’s Inspiring Contemporary Routine

Welcome to the semi-finals! The season 25 champion will be crowned in just one week and the semifinalists are putting their best foot forward tonight. On Monday, the remaining five stars will dance a tango, salsa, waltz, Argentine tango or contemporary routine to a song chosen by the pro in the first round. In the second round, the couples will recreate iconic dances from previous seasons, including Derek Hough and Amber Riley’s Charleston and Maks Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis’s tango. One couple will be eliminated at the end of the night, falling just short of the finals and fan-favorite freestyles. Drew Scott and Emma Slater are currently at the bottom of the leaderboard with 47 out of 60 points. At the top of the leaderboard are Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold, who earned perfect scores for both their quickstep and salsa during the quarterfinals last week.

“Dancing with the Stars” Social Media Reactions

According to ABC, Stirling “is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. An acclaimed violinist from Gilbert, AZ., she entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, using her classical violin training, to leap through the music industry with almost 10 million YouTube subscribers, over 1.9 billion views on her YouTube channel, two Billboard Music Awards, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide. She’s created a new music world where modern classical meets the infectious energy of dance and electronica.”

The remaining competitors for the 25th season of “Dancing with the Stars,” hosted by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, include Hamilton’s Jordan Fisher, “Property Brothers” co-host Drew Scott, former paralympian swimmer Victoria Arlen, violinist Lindsey Stirling and actor Frankie Muniz.

The judging panel features Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Their scores, along with America’s votes, determine which couples will go home and which ones will advance to compete for the coveted Mirrorball trophy.

The “Dancing with the Stars” two-part finale airs next Monday night at 8 p.m. and next Tuesday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
