Six pairs entered the ballroom this week, but only four would advance to the semi-finals. If you don't want to know who was sent packing tonight on Dancing with the Stars, read no further!
Despite making a huge comeback following their near-elimination last Tuesday, Roshon Fegan and partner Chelsie Hightower were the first couple to get the axe in this dual elimination week.
The Disney star maintained his happy-go-lucky attitude to the very end, telling his fans he was elated to make it as far as he did in addition to the perk of adding ballroom dance to his many talents.
"He was such a joy to work with," Hightower praised. "[He] came every day willing to work and such a great attitude."
Next to face the gauntlet, Katherine Jenkins, who received her first 8 in weeks, and Melissa Gilbert, who most recently placed last in the competition.
Ultimately Melissa and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were chosen as the second couple to take their leave for their dance floor-- An announcement that brought the Little House on the Prarie star to tears.
"I'm amazed that I even made it this far," said Melissa, who coincidentally turned 48 tonight. "The things that I was able to do and the things that were able to overcome to have been here on this day, does make it a really incredible birthday."
Both eliminated couples are slated to appear tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Good Morning America tomorrow.
Tune in next week to ABC when Dancing with the Stars returns for the semi-finals next Monday at 8 p.m.!
