Dancing With the Stars 2013: Watch All the Week 9 Semifinals Performances (VIDEOS)

It seems like Dancing With the Stars 2013 just started, but we’re already in Season 16: Week 9 (aka the semifinals). Tonight is the last chance for the Final 5 pairs to wow the judges and America, so we bet everyone is going to bring their A-game for their two dances.

It is a real doozy since one dance per couple is fan chosen on Twitter! While for some it will be easy (Zendaya got Hip Hop), others may struggle learning a new style (Aly and Mark’s Afro Jazz, which has never been done before on DWTS). We have some scoop straight from the stars as to what they’re doing and what they’re excited about, but it’s anyone’s game with four stars going into next week’s finale.

Also noteworthy is whether Karina Smirnoff will dance tonight. She was rushed to the hospital after a major accident while practicing a flip with partner Jacoby Jones, reportedly examined for “severe neck strain, whiplash and a possible jaw injury.” Eek! A source told Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that she’s “determined to perform,” even though she’s wearing a brace! We just want her to be safe and healthy.

We’ll be posting all of the performance videos below during the show, but until then, here’s a GIF of Kellie Pickler and Tristan MacManus arm-wrestling to tide you over until 8 p.m. ET/PT!
