Tuesday night marked the introduction of the Dance Duel to Dancing With the Stars. In this new feature, the bottom two couples will perform a dance-off in a particular dance style and the judges will make the final call on who to save (and who to send home).
This week JJaleel White & Kym Johnson and Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff and were the first pair of couples to compete in the Dance Duel. Ultimately, Gavin and Karina were sent home, with the judges feeling that Jaleel’s dance was cleaner and showed the most improvement. All the judges voted to save Jaleel over Gavin. Watch the performance below.
