Dancing With the Stars FinaleWith only a week to go before a new couple hoists the mirror ball trophy, it’s Dancing With the Stars: the Semi-Finals! Tonight, the four remaining couples: Noah Galloway, Nastia Likuin, Riker Lynch and Rumer Willis and their professional partners will perform two full routines including a Viennese Waltz, Quickstep, Paso Doble, Contemporary and Argentine Tango.

For the first time ever, this week each judge is coaching one of the four remaining couples. In addition to offering constructive criticism and help, they will be choosing their couples’ song, dance style and wardrobe. DWTS Judge Julianne House is taking her coaching duties extra-seriously as she’s stepping from behind the judges table and back onto the dance floor! Hough revealed to E! News that she will be dancing with her second cousin Riker Lynch and his partner, pro dancer Allison Holker during their Argentine tango. E! News shared footage of their BTS practice session:

  1. Well, the results of DWTS just does not seem to be fair and is really not based on talent. People are voting based on emotions. It’s wonderful that the army guy without limbs was bold enough to put himself out there and try to perform. But, honestly him getting to the final & derick and his partner getting eliminated was beyond the pail. This makes no sense.
    This is not a popularity contest. This is a talent contest and I respect the army vet but, hey! these results are simply mind boggling.
