Title: Season 9, Week 7: Results
Air Date: November 3, 2009 at 12:00 AM PST
Uh-oh! Only seven pairs are left, and two couples are going home tonight! That means being declared "safe" is more important than ever. Kelly gets the first reprieve, and Donny, Mya, and Joanna all get to relax as well, knowing they'll be back next week.
In the bottom three are Mark, Michael, and Aaron. And let's not forget, Aaron got the second highest combined score the night before, and the highest individual score with a 9 and two 10s for his Jive with Karina. But apparently it wasn't enough! Don't forget, the viewers' votes also count for something!
The first cut was Michael Irvin, who receives a heartfelt standing ovation. Next is the dance-off that determines who else will be eliminated - Mark or Aaron? The guys face off in an intense display of dance. Mark, reunited with Lacey who was sick for the week's performance show, truly connects and dances a spectacular Cha Cha. But they can't compete with Aaron & Karina's Jive, which is a total. showstopper. (The Jive really is Aaron's dance!) The judges unanimously save Aaron to dance another week. Mark & Lacey bid DWTS goodbye.
