As the red light shown on Calvin Harris and Terra Jole, host, Tom Bergeron began to announce the name of the final person to make it to finale week. Would it be the football player with the winning smile? Or would it be the little person that has spent her entire life defying the odds?

Today's semi-final round of Dancing With The Stars featured the five best dancers in the season. Laurie Hernandez, James Hinchcliffe, Jana Kramer, Calvin Harris and Terra Jole, have been the most consistent performers for the entire season.

Along with their single dances, the contestants were thrown the obstacle of the trio dance. The trio dances consist of the contestant having to split their focus between two professional dancers. When executed well, these dances are show stoppers. But when off, by the slightest margin, these dances can really expose what the contestants can not do very well.

The first round dances

The first round of competition went mostly according to form as Laurie Hernandez and James Hinchcliffe performed show stopping numbers.

Although done before, James' partner, Sharna decided to dance blind folded during their dramatic tango and the effect worked well. Carrie Ann Inaba decided to spoil the fun by giving them a 9 to Julianne and Bruno's 10. The most emotional performance of round 1 came from Laurie Hernandez who danced a Foxtrot in honor of her late grandmother. Her mother suffered from Alzheimer's disease and passed away last week.

Naturally, she received a perfect score from all three judges. And for the first time all season, the song choices for each dance were pretty spot on.

The trio dance round

The trio round was a bit of a dud as all five dances received perfect scores. It was hard to pick a favorite number but the Salsa by Calvin and Lindsay featuring Witney was well done. The jive trio with James and Sharna featuring Jenna was also a stand out routine.

Both of these athletes have shown extreme amounts in growth in the performance aspect of their dances. The one trio that I did not particularly care for was Laurie's. While always nice to see Maks in dance pants, the dance was not really a trio as much as Laurie and Val dancing with a very small cameo by Maks.

The last dance for a crowd favorite

In the end, the person who received the lowest combined numbers of votes was little woman, Terra Jole. Though her journey ended before the finale, she proved that her disability was not something that should be seen as such. Don't worry Terra fans, all of the eliminated contestants will be back in the ballroom next week.
