Dancing With the Stars paid tribute to some of music's biggest names! This week, Dancing With the Stars celebrated Icons Night, and ET was following along the whole time.
The remaining seven celebs and their pro partners hit the dance floor to honor some of the most iconic artists, with routines paying homage to performers like Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Madonna, Freddie Mercury and more!
ET was following along for the entire two-hour spectacular, and breaking down all the biggest dance numbers, best scores and most memorable moments from Icons Night.
The fun kicked off on Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, and you can watch along with ET's live blog, right here!
And the Couple Going Home Is...
The moment of truth is at hand! Who is will dance in next week's semi-finals, and who's getting sent home?
After Tyra announces the five couples who are safe, she reveals that the two couples in jeopardy are AJ and Cheryl, as well as Johnny and Britt.
Their fates are in the hands of the judges.
Bruno agonizes over the choice, but votes to save Johnny and Britt.
Derek struggles as well, and eventually votes to save AJ and Cheryl.
It all comes down to Carrie Ann, who uses her deciding vote to save Johnny and Britt, sending AJ and Cheryl home.
"You know what? This has been one hell of a ride and I could not have picked a better partner to go on this journey with," AJ shares after the elimination.
Next week, the final six pairs will face off in the semi-finals.
Dance Off #3
Celebs: Johnny vs. AJ
Dance: Jive set to Wham's "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go."
Winners: AJ & Cheryl
Dance Off #2
Celebs: Nelly vs. Skai
Notes: Nelly goes shirtless, for the votes no doubt!
Dance Off #1
Celebs: Justina vs. Kaitlyn
Dance: Cha-cha set to "Telephone" by Lady Gaga and Beyonce.
NOTES: Nev and Jenna are immune from the dance offs! They just get the 2 bonus points without having to perform.
Nev and Jenna Are Looking for a Fight!
The Catfish star has been consistently fun and enthusiastic every week, and for Icons Night, he is paying tribute to his musical hero, Elton John.
Nev and Jenna come out to the ballroom to deliver Jive set to “Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)" that is full of love and energy.
The judges all love the excitement, but have some specific critiques for his footwork -- but overall there's a lot of love.
After Tyra throws to a commercial break, we learn the pair's scores: three 9s for a total of 27 out of 30.
Skai & Alan Honor Janet Jackson
When Skai sets her mind to a comeback, she see it through.
The young actress channeled Janet Jackson -- including her incredible ensemble -- for her Paso Doble set to "If."
The wild routine wowed the judges, who were also blown away by Skai's determination to be a voice and catalyst for social change -- as inspired by Jackson herself.
After almost getting eliminated last week, Skai and Alan earn three 9s for a total of 27 out of 30. That's one impressive comeback.
Johnny & Britt Pay Flawless Tribute to Amy Winehouse
Johnny gets emotional in his pre-taped package while talking about how he's dealt with pressure and low points in his life, and come back to regain his sense of self-worth.
"Tonight's performance is all about loving yourself enough to love yourself at your worst," he shares before hitting the stage with Britt for a Quickstep honoring Amy Winehouse and set to her tune "Valerie."
Johnny rocks a beehive hair-do and Winehouse-inspired ensemble to deliver a performance that Bruno praises as "unique and groundbreaking."
The duo earn the night's SECOND perfect score, grabbing three 10s for a total of 30 out of 30.
Kaitlyn and Artem Give Us a 'Toxic' Tango
Kaitlyn and Artem hit the dance floor -- no doubt bracing themselves for whatever score they're going to get from Carrie Ann -- and deliver a smooth, elegant and romantic number that outshines all others this evening.
Performing and Argentine Tango set to Britney Spears' "Toxic," the pair are totally in sync.
Bruno praised the dance's "luscious shapes," while Carrie Ann gives them a sanding ovation.
Carrie Ann even gives the dancers a hug (which is likely a COVID protocol violation), but it symbolized them moving forward.
The flawless routine was awarded a flawless score -- three 10s for a total of 30 out of 30. This marks only the second perfect score of the season!
AJ and Cheryl Are Royalty
AJ loves Freddie Mercury, so he really goes all out with a cape and crown as he hits the stage for his Viennese Waltz with Cheryl Burke, set to Queen's "Somebody to Love."
The number begins strong, but as Bruno suggests, AJ is so pumped up at the start that he got a little jumbled up and the dance ended up missing quite a few steps and suffered from a number of minor errors that added up.
The scores weren't nearly as bad as the judges' feedback seemed to suggest they would be.
The pair end up earning a 7 and two 8s for a total of 23 out of 30.
Nelly & Daniella's Scores
Despite the missteps, Nelly's performance is so good and so much fun he still manages to score all 8s for a total of 24 out of 30!
Nelly & Daniella Dance a 2Pac Jazz Number
Nelly's icon of choice is 2Pac, and he and Daniella hit the stage for a jazz routine set to "California Love."
The number begins with Nelly coming out and pulling off a standing back-flip that is just mind-blowing.
The number in general is fantastic and fun and wild and endlessly entertaining, and the judges all feel a connection to the performance.
While Nelly is the first to admit that he missed a few steps and made a few mistakes, there's a whole lot to love in general for the routine.
We'll find out the scores after the break, because of course we will. Ugh.
Justina is Crazy for Madonna
Justina says she was wildly inspired by Madonna, so it only makes sense that they would want to honor the pop superstar on Icons Night.
Justina and Sasha hit the stage for a rumba set to Madonna's "Crazy for You" and they deliver a sweet, heartfelt performance that impressed the crowd.
"You look amazing tonight, very sexy, very powerful," Carrie Ann marvels.
Derek and Bruno are impressed with her versatility, but felt the performance could be more dynamic.
The pair end up earning three 8s for a total of 24 out of 30.
So Many Iconic Costumes!
Wow! It's Icons Night, and if the costumes the celeb couples are wearing are any indication, stuff is going to get wild!
