Next they'll dance to a style they've yet to try on the ABC competition series. After the performance, Bruno told the couple they had exceeded his expectations.

He scored 34 out of 40 by the four celebrity dancing judges.

Bruno challenged Rashad Jennings with cleaning up his hands and feet.

Well, dance fans, it was the semifinal of Season 24 tonight and for drama alone, it didn't disappoint. For their first effort, Rashad and Emma Slater earned a 38. The NFL player earned 39 points. Carrie Ann loved that she just danced with her soul.

The result seemed to be a touchdown with the judges, as Goodman said: "I liked the light and shade about it, it was fast, it was slow". For their second dance of the night, they'll be dancing a Quickstep to "Yes I Can" by Superhumans. For her performance, the show brought out a balance beam to the dance floor. In the video package, Simone was clearly frustrated at her recent critiques. "I've been going nonstop since the Olympics, so I'll have a week off!"


In the clip, the gymnast also opens up about why it's hard for her to transition from an emotionless gymnastic routine to an emotion filled dance routine. This gives Carrie Ann the opportunity to explain what she means when she's been telling Simone she needs to tap into a more vulnerable, honest part of herself. Simone said "Zoey." Zoey achieved perfection! Chicago Cubs fans and their boundless enthusiasm for the catcher who helped bring them a national title past year may have helped Ross come out ahead of Biles and saved him from elimination, with viewer votes.

Simone handled the blow like a total pro, however, and in this circumstance, her steely nature probably was a plus.

"I'm just thankful to be at this competition". I guess the viewers listened to the judges when they said that David was what the show was all about and when they criticized Simone week after week.

Now Normani is heading to the show's finale next week after seeing her close friend, Simone Biles, go home in a shocking elimination on Monday night. But in learning a little more about Normani, we see what a tough life she had as a youngster.
