Live blogging the Dancing with the Stars Results HERE! Two all-star couples will head home…

Plus. PAULA ABDUL performs!

APOLO AND KARINA ARE ELIMINATED
EMMITT AND CHERYL ARE ELIMINATED

It’s an all girl final! Shawn & Derek, Melissa & Tony and Kelly and Val advance to next week’s final!

The judges choose the “beautiful and sensual” rumba from Apolo and Karina for the encore performance.

First a recap of Shawn and Derick’s performances. Have they made it to the finals? YES OF COURSE. The couple had the highest score, 59, last week. They are SAFE and move on to the finals.

Parris Gobel, a young dancer from New Zealand, is profiled. She’s a hip-hop dancer who opened her own dance studio and choreographed with Jennifer Lopez. She’s only 21. Parris and her troupe perform to “Girl on Fire.”  Tom sits next to Parris on the floor to lead us into commercial. He’s awesome!

Next, The Wanted take the stage to sing the band’s hits, “I Found You” and “Glad You Came”.

Results! It’s recap time for Melissa & Tony and Apolo & Karina. The couples came in 2 and 3 on last night’s leader board, respectively.  Oh no! One of the couples will be eliminated with the LOWEST combined score! APOLO AND KARINA ARE ELIMINATED. Melissa and Tony are SAFE.  Apolo says the competition was hard from the beginning. “Every single person who does this show is a champion. It forces you to become stronger, more confident.”

Brooke interviews the two couples going to the finals next week. Blah blah blah.

PAULA ABDUL IS NEXT HOORAY!!!! First a look at how she put the dance routine together.  It incorporates 4 of her #1 hits.  “Forever Your Girl”. SHE’S SO LIP SYNCING. “Cold Hearted Snake” is next. There are scenes from her videos projected behind her. OMG HERE COMES MC SKAT KAT. “Opposites Attract”. And “Straight Up”. The songs are all remixed to be more contemporary. MAKS makes a cameo.  I actually have no idea what the hell that was, but I do not care.

Next, Derek Hough performs a number with 4 contemporary dancers. He is not trained in contemporary. He likes to put himself in situations that force him out of his comfort zone. Melanie Moore and Kathryn McCormick from SYTYCD are two of the dancers.

Finally, the rest of the results! A recap of the two remaining couples, Kelly & Val and Emmitt and Cheryl. OHMYGOSH It’s an ALL GIRL FINAL. Emmitt and Cheryl are ELIMINATED, Kelly and Val are SAFE and will move on to next week’s final.

    Hoping Melissa made it to the final, but I’m doubtful. =/

    So what was so special about the hip hop girl?  And I am still not impressed with The Wanted who btw according to one of their members, have have not made any money off their success.

    Now that Apolo’s gone, I’m done with the show…I’ll never understand what the judges are seeing with Derek and Shawn–their timing was so off in that first dance last night. Ugh….

  • dabney c

    The NZ hip-hop girl’s dance was kind of ugly, I thought.

    Are you kidding me? damn, do not see a happy ending for them at that rate…

    Wow Melissa has fans!!!

  • dabney c

    Whooo! Paula’s number was hot! Love her!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NDYOWBIIPZU6PBRHGOPT2ZZJXQ sweetmm

    I still think Kelly’s fans will carry her through.

    So happy Melissa made it. Hope she can keep the momentum up for next week. Even though Shawn Johnson already made the space on her parent’s mantle for her 2nd mirror ball. =(

    If you think Shawn and Derek were off last night, you must have missed Apolo’s first performance.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NDYOWBIIPZU6PBRHGOPT2ZZJXQ sweetmm

    Next week the judges need to give real shitty points to Kelly to ensure she won’t win the mirror ball!!!

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Damn, the two MALE athletes are gone? Including the FOOTBALL player? Wow, I might just tune in next week. Haven’t cared much since Sabrina left. 

    Come on Tony! Hope you finally win your mirror ball trophy. You so deserve it! :)

    I am on the west coast, but came here to find out who made it through to the finals! YAY! Melissa and Tony are in! I am so happy for them! I can’t wait to see the show.  The biggest shocker for me is Emmitt being eliminated. I do think he should have been eliminated, but thought he had a big enough fan base to make it.  He is a great guy, so much fun to watch but he didn’t do very well last night. Although I like him, this was the right result.

    Someone had to go and it’s too bad about Appolo. I wasn’t sure if he would get through. But it appears that Kelly’s fans got her into the finals and something had to give.  I honestly am not thrilled to see her in the finals.  But it’s all women! I never thought that would happen either. 

    I believe that Shawn and Derek are the odds on favorites and will be hard to beat. But you never know with this show. I am just thrilled that Melissa and Tony made it this time to the finals! Well deserved!

     Haha, for all the grief given to other reality talent shows about males, the voters on Dancing with the Stars have put three women into the finale. And people were predicting a male would win this year. This is awesome!

  • glennethph

    Yup, 3 of them are in the judges’ table.

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    Not being fair to Kelly and Val in the scoring backfired on the judges.  Many predicted that would happen.  I have been voting for Kelly and Val all along, but will change my voting for the Finals. 

    I know Kelly won’t win it.  Derek has won several times; Tony hasn’t.  I actually like Melissa more than Shawn – so my votes will go to Melissa and Tony.  It will be a tough competittion; I hope everyone stays healthy!

  • supersonic

    With Apolo gone, I’m now worried about a Melissa win.  She has everything going for her — the judges in her back pocket, sympathy, being a non-winner, Tony not having won, either.  Her and Tony just seem so desperate this season that it just might work for them.

  • poipugirl

    Not Apolo!!!!  Darn it!   Boooo!How is Kelly and Val in it still?  They give me the creeps with the perviness.  It’s not even sexy at all.

    I am definitely voting for Shawn and Derek!  I know they will have a killer performance!  Although, if Melissa and Tony win, I won’t be upset!  They deserve it too. 

    It will all depend on their performances next week!  Bring it Derek!  It’s your last!

  • poipugirl

    Allison Hoker and Derek dance beautifully together!  OMG!  Their contempory routine and music was amazing!  And it was great to see them with Katherine and Melanie!!

    Well at least I don’t have to split votes between Shawn & Apolo anymore. I’m all in for Shawn & Derek.

    Super bummed that two of my faves were eliminated though. :(

  • idolbeat

    I could watch Allison Holker and Derek Hough dance together all day! I have rewatched the video – gosh, so much fluidity, control, strength, muscles, and yet, delicacy – not sure if that is the word I want but tender with point – does that even make sense? Melanie, Katherine and the other dancer I don’t know, as an ensemble, is breathtaking. I am sad I couldn’t experience seeing it live.

  • Lexee234

    This isn’t sour grapes, but with Apolo now gone, I’m not invested enough anymore to watch the finale. Sorry and disappointed to see him out already.

  • Laurie Havens

    Derek is a really amazing dancer, but the judges favor him. It’s sooo obvious but the judges don’t care I guess.

  • Laurie Havens

    Hey asshole, she already gets shitty scores and she made it to the final anyway
