‘Dancing with the Stars’: Chief Judge Len Goodman Announces Resignation; Season finalists announced
LOS ANGELES — After more than two months of fierce competition, the 31st season of Dancing with the Stars has named the four couples who will appear in the finale and compete for the mirror ball trophy.
Six couples competed in the semifinals, each performing a ballroom dance and a Latin American dance. Charli D’Amelio and Gabby Windey got perfect scores for both dances, so it was easy to guess that they would make the finals.
In double elimination, the pair with the lowest combined fan and judge votes would be eliminated with no chance of salvation. It ended up being Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater. The actor praised his dance partner for her patience and professionalism.
“I came here with no dance experience. said Donovan. “And I needed someone to lean on and be supported by and Emma was there every step of the way. She was incredible.”
The other two couples in the bottom two were Shangela and Gleb Savchenko, and Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart. In the end, the judges opted to save Shangela and Gleb, leaving Daniel and Britt eliminated as the final couple before the finals.
“I’m surprised I can dance. With this wonderful cast in this competition. It’s so hard to get this far,” Durant said. “I am grateful to Britt, she is such a great teacher. And she learned ESL for me! I enjoyed every moment.”
The night’s biggest news came from head judge Len Goodman, who announced his retirement. Next week’s finale will be the final episode of the ballroom dancing legend after starring in every season since 2005.
The four couples competing in the season 31 finale of Dancing with the Stars are Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas, Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy, Wayne Brady and Witney Carson, and Shangela and Gleb Savchenko.
The season 31 finale airs Monday, November 21, 8/7c, Disney+.
