The semi finales are always the most heartbreaking elimination on Dancing With the Stars. The stars are so close to the Mirror Ball, yet someone has to get shut out from the chance to win it all.

The Season 13, Week 9 performance show was a shocker, with J.R. Martinez struggling due to injuries, and Rob Kardashian earning himself his first 10 for a booty-licious Samba.  What used to look like a guaranteed J.R. Martinez vs. Ricki Lake finale is now anyone's game.  So who went home?

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy! This pair has been controversial all season, and their loyal fans finally weren't able to overcome the judges' lower scores.  Once again, Maks just misses out on the finals.  Will he ever win the Mirror Ball?
