The remaining couples return to perform live once again and must dance either a samba or an American smooth. After each couple have performed the judges give their verdict and scores. At the end of the show the two couples with the lowest combined viewer and judges score compete again in the dance off. The judges then decide who will be the unlucky couple going home tonight.
