"Dancing with the Stars" Holds Double Elimination- Find Out Who Went Home!
Kicking off the first results show of the season with a bang, "Dancing with the Stars" held a shocking double elimination on Monday night (March 24).
Aside from this evening's scores and dances, there were two other major announcements that got fans excited for the coming weeks! First up, it was revealed that fan-favorite and former pro Julianne Hough would be back to the dance floor in two weeks as a guest judge, while another twist in the show is set for the season.
A new feature called "The Switch Up," will allow viewers to send tweets to the show where they can mix up the dancing pros and celebrities. To take part, fans just need to send a tweet using the hastag #DWTS along with the first name of the celeb and the dancer they want paired together. Closing for the tweets ends on March 31 at 11:59 p.m., ET. The new matches will be announced live on air on April 7, where the new couples will take the dance floor for the first time.
So just which celebs won't make it to the switch up round? In a surprise elimination, Diana Nyad and Henry Byalikov were given the axe in the middle of the show after landing near the bottom of the leaderboard last week.
As for the last unlucky star, it was revealed at the end of the show that Sean Avery and his partner Karina Smirnoff will also be hanging up their dancing shoes. "I made a new friend in Karina. I made some money for charity," he said, and, "I got out of the cold winter of New York."
