Dancing With the Stars Recap: It Has All Come Down to THIS

by at .

It has all come down to this, Dancing With the Stars fans.

The top four remaining celebs gave it everything they had on Monday, with a spot in the pantheon of Mirror Ball trophy winners on the line.

Who took a major step toward reality TV immortality?!

Laurie Hernandez Cries

First up, all of the couples were at the mercy of the judges, who chose their dances.

Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Arnold 

We kicked things off with this duo performing the Vienesse Waltz. If you recall, they previously danced to the Vienesse Waltz in Week 3 and got less than stellar scores. 

This time, however, it was clear the pair had upped their game and the judges took note of it. Len seemed to think it was the most improved dance out of the final and the scores from all the judges reflected the improvement. 

Score: 35/40!

Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko 

The former One Tree Hill star and her dance partner danced the Tango and got a good response from the judges. The judges made it clear it was evident how far Jana has come throughout the competition and that she has been taking all the feedback on board. 

Score: 35/40!

Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy

The judges chose Paso Doble for the dance, after the couple failed to gain much traction when they did it in Week 5. The judges collectively agreed that the pair had managed to go from strength-to-strength and wow them. They did look like they were really into it. 

Score: 38/40!

James Hinchliffe and Sharna Burgess

The judges went with a Foxtrot for this duo and as you probably know if you've been glued to the show this year, the couple are definitely the best dancers on the show. Everything about their performances just works so well and the judges took not of this in the comments. 

Score: 39/40!

After that, we moved on to the freestyle dances and things got more difficult for all of the couples still in the competition. 

Jana and Gleb

The duo opted for contemporary dance to try and win their way to the end. The difficult part was that they danced their routine with a piece of cloth connecting them. The judges were blown away by the performance, but didn't hand out a perfect score. 

Score: 36/40!

Calvin and Lindsay

This duo really went to town with their performance, throwing each other around the dance floor and the judges loved it. 

Score: 40/40!

Laurie and Val

This duo went with a playground theme for their performance and it seemed they seemed to hit the right moves to make the judges give them a perfect score.

Score: 40/40!

James and Sharna 

James and Sharna went with a very personal freestyle that linked back to a car crash that nearly killed James. The judges raved about it and haned out another perfect score. 

Jana and Gleb were eliminated from the competition!

Who do you want to see win the show?

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
