Who Will Go Home in Dancing With the Stars Semifinals — Tommy? Janel? Sadie?
It’s always rough to be cut just before the Finals of Dancing With the Stars, but it’s going to happen again on Monday, November 17. Only four couples will make it past Season 19's Week 10 Semifinals to compete in the fall 2014 season's two-night Finale.
Some people think Tommy should’ve gone home by now while others think he’ll make the Finals because he’s a classic “underdog” with performance power. The man is 76 years old and puts on a show every week, even if no one can argue that his dancing is up to the standard of the others. But when he’s competing against two teenagers and two other stars with more performance experience, who can blame fans for wanting to back the cool cat and his even cooler leading lady, Peta, who has proven she has the patience of a saint?
So what will it be? Will the underdog survive again, despite his bargain-basement scores, or will it be his time to leave so the final four couples — who all have a similarly high standard of dancing — can duke it out? If Tommy survives, who will go? The next up on the board are Sadie and Mark, but all four couples’s scores are close. Bethany and Derek are only one point ahead of Sadie and Mark. Mark has a history of “shocking” eliminations, so it’s possible he could face that again, but Team Quack Attack may also be benefitting from fans who feel they’ve been underscored by the judges. It’s strange to see them second from the bottom, with their high level of dancing. But who else would go? Could we see a super shocker with one of the highest scoring dancers going? Val has also faced some surprises as a pro, and some fans grumbled (as Carrie Ann Inaba wrote in her blog) that the judges were too kind to Team Janelskiy this week and ignored some mistakes. Will that cost them?
Despite the possibility for a huge surprise, we’re sticking with the guess that it’s Tommy’s time to go. What do you think? What do you think will happen and what would you like to see happen? Same answer for both?
