Mirai Nagasu and Alan Bersten

Quickstep, “Bo$$” by Ray Chew Live

We are all blessed to have Mirai on this season of DWTS, dropping partial shade on her competitors at every turn. It is glorious! More important, her quickstep is also glorious. She dedicates the routine to her MVP, her mom. Her mom is definitely an MVP, driving Mirai to practice and school and encouraging her to plow through the hardship. Mirai and Alan glitz up the dance floor with a fun, classic quickstep. Mirai has such confidence in her movement and the whole golden spectacle is glamourous. The judges note that she lost her posture and top line as the routine went on, but other than that, she nails this routine.

Judges Score: 35/40

Jennie Finch Daigle and Keo Motsepe

Viennese Waltz, “The Rest of Our Life” by Tim McGraw & Faith Hill

Jennie brings Keo back to the woods of Lousiana to have him spend some time with her MVP: her husband Casey. Should every rehearsal take place in the forest? Discuss below. Jennie and Casey are v. in love and say things like “she’s part angel” and he “has a golden heart.” Good for them, I guess? I’ll just be over here, stuffing peanut m&ms into my mouth. The judges can see that Jennie is much more at ease this week. She finally trusts Keo, and as Bruno notes, that’s the biggest hurdle on the way to winning this thing. She still lacks fluidity in her arms and has some balance issues, but she is enjoying herself, so it evens out.

Judges’ Score: 29/40

Chris Mazdzer and Witney Carson

Foxtrot, “I Got Rhythm” by Ray Chew Live

Chris’ MVP is one of the biggest DWTS fans on the planet…who also happens to be his mother. Marty is a delight and Chris makes us all look like terrible children by making his mom’s dreams of being on the show come true for Mother’s Day. Chris and Witney perform a fun foxtrot with an old Hollywood vibe. The judges are harsh on Chris for his opening solo section, telling him he was stiff and not dancing big enough, but it didn’t read that terrible on TV. And David is right, dancing solo is scary — this is week three! Regardless, they make up for the whole thing with a fabulous group hat choreography, that I’ll surely be replaying all week. Hats win mirrorball trophies.

Judges’ Score: 33/40

Tonya Harding and Sasha Farber

Rumba,“See You Again” by Tyler Ward

Tonya and Sasha are feeling good after their quickstep last week, but knowing half the field will be eliminated is a lot of pressure. As if Tonya needs any extra emotion piled on this week, while dancing a tribute to her late father. He was her biggest supporter and best friend. Sasha choreographs a very moving rumba and you can see Tonya get emotional as soon as it begins. It only enhances her dancing. Her movement is so fluid and Bruno is happy to see her lines are much improved. Len would’ve liked more hip action but enjoyed the light and shade in the routine. Carrie Ann loves how Tonya dances with authenticity. So overall, nothing to worry about.

Judges’ Score: 33/40

Josh Norman and Sharna Burgess

Contemporary, “Stand By Me” by Bootstraps

Just as we’re recovering from learning that Adam’s mom raised six kids, we learn that Josh is one of five boys. Moms are seriously the best. Josh is dedicating his routine to his brothers. Brothers tease and wrestle, but also brothers gotta hug, ya know? And we get another lovely contemporary routine. Much to Len’s pleasure, this one is much more fluid. Seriously, it looked as if Josh and Sharna were just floating over the ballroom floor at certain points. And those lifts? Yes, please and thank you. Both Len and Carrie Ann are impressed with how confident Josh is, and they all can see how well Josh partners with Sharna. But David nails the critique in one, accurate word: smooth.

Tonya Harding: ‘America Has Proven They Love Me’ on ‘DWTS’

  Tonya Harding: ‘America Has Proven They Love Me’ on ‘DWTS’ Tonya Harding is officially in the finals! During the Monday, May 14, episode of Dancing With the Stars: Athletes, she and partner Sasha Farber made the final three  […]“It’s not about fame, it’s not about fortune, it’s about the journey of life and feeling like America has opened their arms to me and understands me better now,” Harding, 47, said. “I’m just another person. I’ve been knocked down and now I’ve been picked back up and because of America voting for us, we made it to the finals … I think that America has proven that they love me and they wanted to know what happened, and now they know.

' Dancing With the Stars : Athletes ' has revealed its three finalists — read our recap of the results! Monday’s broadcast of the ABC series was especially brutal, as half of the remaining competitors were booted before next week’s finale , bringing the crop from six teams to just three .

Judges’ Score: 36/40

Ballroom Battle Dance-Off

Tonya Harding and Sasha Farber vs. Jennie Finch Daigle and Keo Motsepe

Cha Cha, “Dance” by DNCE

Olympic gymnast and season 20 semi-finalist Nastia Liukin (still thinking about her Charleston on a subway car with Sasha and Derek? You are not alone) swings by the ballroom to mentor Tonya and Jennie, athlete to athlete. With the cha cha, these ladies simply want to have fun on the dance floor. Mission accomplished! Both routines are bright and high energy. Neither couple looks completely confident in this side-by-side, but it’s clear Jennie is having some rhythm issues. David gives the battle to his softball sister, but the OG judges disagree.

Winner: Tonya and Sasha

Adam Rippon and Jenna Johnson vs. Mirai Nagasu and Alan Bersten

Jive, “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry

Is this showdown — or, “Battle of the Besties,” as Tom calls it — a preview of our final two? If so, we are in for a treat. Both Adam and Mirai get a little visit from season 18 champ Meryl Davis because as Adam tells us, “everyone could use a little Meryl Davis wisdom.” These two probably didn’t need much mentoring, but whatever they did, it really works. How can the judges choose between these two high octane routines? I mean, Adam and Jenna do drag queen splits, so they should win by default but Mirai and Alan perform such a crisp, classic jive. The judges are split down the middle, so America chooses the winner. Not surprisingly, America loves drag queen splits.

Winner: Adam and Jenna

Chris Mazdzer and Witney Carson vs. Josh Norman and Sharna Burgess

Salsa, “WTF (Where They From)” by Missy Elliott featuring Pharrell Williams

Chris and Josh are the third evenly matched battle of the night, both in dance ability and abs, the latter of which they both do not hesitate to show us. Again, this really comes down to style preference. Chris and Wit stay in hold most of the time, while Josh and Sharna do a lot of side-by-side work. The lifts are insane across the board. There can only be one salsa champion, and although America goes with Chris and Witney, they judges lean a different way. Chris even shimmied in front of the panel, but alas, it was all for naught.

Winner: Josh and Sharna

Now that we’ve had so much fun, let’s go eliminate half of the cast. This is the saddest. Getting knocked out ahead of the finals are Jennie and Keo, Chris and Witney, and Mirai and Alan (um, what?). This means that Adam and Jenna, Josh and Sharna, and Tonya and Sasha will be freestyling it up in hopes of winning the illustrious mirrorball trophy. It’s not the final three most were expecting, so how is everyone feeling? Is this Adam’s to lose? Could Josh help Queen Sharna finally get the sparkling trophy she deserves? Will Tonya upset? Are there any other questions I could possibly ask right now?
