Debbie Gibson, a 1980s pop icon, and her partner, Alan Bersten, were eliminated on Tuesday night’s episode of “Dancing With The Stars.” Despite their astounding stage design, the pair was among those who received the lowest number of points on the September 26 episode of the reality competition, TV Line reported.

The two chose to dance the Argentine tango to the beat of former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello’s “Havana.” This song is a chart-topping hit on Spotify featuring the performance of her co-artist Young Thug.

Gibson and Bersten joined other celebrity contestants and dance pros in a night of Latin dances. It featured genres such as samba, rumba, paso doble, salsa, and cha-cha. Unfortunately, the pair fell short with their scores and was the second pair eliminated on the 25th season of the reality dance show.

Impressive stage design

Gibson chose to stay traditional with her Argentinian tango performance. Her hair was pulled into a low bun and wore a Spanish-inspired long dress.

It was a shimmering red gown with a high slit and an opening at the back.

Meanwhile, Besten looked sleek with his hair combed neatly. He wore a formal coat on top of a long-sleeve polo and tuxedo. The dance pro even unbuttoned his coat and went on with their routine.

The stage design was complete with an additional group of people dining at tables, but also gracefully following the beat of the Cabello’s hit.

A singing woman was included on stage who performed the song live with piano instrumentals and vocal backups.

There was also a brass part in the song, as Gibson and Bersten climbed a raised platform for the routine. Instead of the usual long strides on stage, their version of Argentine tango utilized only a small part of the dance floor and focused on footwork, spins, and lifting.

The pair’s final pose had the male dancer catching the pop star as she partly laid near the floor, their faces looking at each other. The crowd loved their performance as they gave the pair applause and loud cheers.

Second elimination

Alan Besten and Debbie Gibson received 21 points and, though it was not the lowest score that night, they were eliminated. Meanwhile, Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd made it through the next round after, also, earning one of the lowest scores.

When their names were announced, the audience was heard giving a sound of surprise. The 80s icon said, “This show and this short amount of time, and this guy right here, I feel that I got my life back.

So I am so thrilled... We’re gonna keep dancing!”
