As the first season of Dancing with the Stars: Juniors prepares for its big finale next weekend, the surprises keep on coming.
During last night’s episode, hosts Jordan Fisher and Frankie Muniz shocked the four remaining teams – Ariana Greenblatt with Artyon Celestine, mentored by Brandon Armstrong; Mackenzie Ziegler with Sage Rosen, mentored by Gleb Savchenko; Miles Brown with Rylee Arnold, mentored by Lindsay Arnold; and Sky Brown with JT Church, mentored by Alan Bersten – with a big announcement. Instead of sending one team home, they will all be heading to the finale.
“This week the couple going home is no one,” Fisher said. “You’re all going through to the finale!”
The final four contestants performed two routines during the semi-finals. The remaining four celebs and their pro partners began the night with the usual individual dances. The second round was dance duos, during which the teams paired off. Here’s how they fared with the judges:
Mackenzie Ziegler and Sage Rosen (Mentored by Gleb Savchenko) danced the Paso Doble to “The Edge of Glory” by Lady Gaga. They scored a perfect 30.
Sky Brown and JT Church (Mentor by Alan Bersten) danced the Argentine Tango to “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons. They scored 29.
Miles Brown and Rylee Arnold (Mentored by Lindsay Arnold) danced the Cha Cha to “Shake Senora” by Pitbull featuring T-Pain & Sean Paul. They scored 28.
Ariana Greenblatt and Artyon Celestine (Mentored by Brandon Armstrong) danced the Foxtrot to “We’re All in This Together” by High School Musical cast. They scored 28.
