Get ready to shake it --and to cry buckets of big, salty tears-- because Dancing With The Stars 2015 resumes Oct. 5 with Most Memorable Year night, an always-emotional evening of performances that will celebrate the celebrity contestants' most meaningful years of life. Regardless of how the scores come down from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough, and Bruno Tonioli, the evening will end on a bad note for whomever is eliminated at the close of the two-hour live broadcast.

So who's most likely to be eliminated?

Quickstepping toward the trophy

Unless voters pull off a Sabrina Bryan-style shocker, a handful of couples are no-brainers to advance to the reality dance competition's Oct.

12 Switch-Up week. Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess, singer Tamar Braxton and Valentin Chmerkovskiy, and wildlife conservationist Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough enter DWTS week four in a three-way tie for the most judges' points accrued. All three pairs should easily slide to week five.

Although Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold haven't earned as many points as the the top-scorers, the judges adore them. Given the panelists' lavish praise and America's love of heroes, they'll be safe.

Waltzing in the middle

These couples have what it takes to win the season and should be safe, but they're middle-of-the-packers and anything could happen. Spy Kids alum Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas enjoyed a breakout week three that propelled them to the top of the leaderboard for the first time, but they need to prove that their partnership is truly rock solid before they'll rise to the ranks of the season 21 elite.

In a similar boat is PenaVega's husband Carlos PenaVega, whose routines with season 19 champion Witney Carson have been good, but not particularly well-received by the panelists.

Social media star Hayes Grier and Emma Slater have proven to be early-season fan favorites, but their underpowered week three Ninja Turtle-themed jive may have put them behind the eight-ball. Grier's many fans won't let them go home just yet, but he has some work to do if he wants to stick around much longer.

Foxtrotting through the danger zone

All things considered, the final three couples are all in danger of going home on Oct. 5. Although singer Andy Grammer and Allison Holker have been good, they haven't been great. That fact coupled with their status as an endangered couple at the close of the Sept. 28 show that saw Kim Zolciak and Tony Dovolani get the boot puts them at risk.

Also in serious trouble are both actor Gary Busey and celebrity chef Paula Deen. They've earned the fewest points of all of the contestants (by a wide margin), and are the longest shots to take the trophy, according to updated odds posted by Bovada Sportsbook. Given that Busey and Anna Trebunskaya outscored Deen and Louis Van Amstel by a whopping five points during week three, expect Deen to fall victim to elimination.
