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.
