This might be the most shocking season ofDancing With the Starsever!
The four remaining contestants danced their hearts out during Monday's Season 24 semi-finals, performing two routines apiece. Simone Biles topped the night's leaderboard with a perfect combined score of 80 out of 80, while Rashad Jennings placed second with 77, and Normani Kordei landed third with 76. Former Chicago Cubs catcher David Ross tailed in fourth place with 70.
It was no surprise then, when Ross found himself in jeopardy at the end of the night, although his place on the chopping block alongside Biles was a bit more unexpected.
The real shock arrived when the axe came down on Biles, despite the fact that the Olympic gold medalist had earned two perfect scores on Monday, while Ross has never earned a single 10!
Neither the judges nor the crowd (or even Ross) could believe that Biles had been eliminated. There was a shocked silence in the audience, and judge Julianne Hough even stood up in utter disbelief, while Len Goodman held his head in his hands.
"I am in absolute shock," co-host Erin Andrews stammered as she and Tom Bergeron hugged the young star.
However, despite the shocking result, Biles kept her spirits up and was effortlessly charming in defeat.
"I've learned a lot about myself, I've matured, and I can't wait to go home," she said, laughing. "And I'll be back next week for the finale."
Biles and her partner, Sasha Farber, shared a group hug with her fellow competitors in the middle of the dance floor as the show came to a close.
The result was even more surprising than Heather Morris' shocking elimination in Week 6, when she was sent home after earning the season's first perfect score.
Check out the video below for a look at some of Biles' most impassioned, powerful dances of the season.
Kordei, Jennings and Ross will battle it out for the coveted mirror ball trophy in the Dancing With the Stars two-night finale next Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
