We've now passed the halfway mark on Dancing with the Stars and the line-up is getting smaller and smaller, with the seventh celebrity leaving the show on Tuesday 7th November.


For this week's show, the celebrities and their professional dance partners danced to songs behind some of the most infamous music videos in history, finishing the night off with a team dance where the youngest celebs faced off against the oldest.

But at the end of it, one pair had to go home, with YouTuber and actress Lele Pons and Brandon Armstrong becoming the latest couple to be eliminated.

Despite finishing in third place on the leaderboard for Music Video Night, and just one point behind joint top spot holders, Ariana Madix and Pasha Pashkov and Xochitl Gomez and Val Chmerkovskiy, it wasn't enough to save Lele from the audience vote.

The results shocked the judges and Lele's partner Brandon.

"That one burns,” he told hosts Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough. “I definitely don’t think Lele should’ve gone home tonight. I think Lele was getting better, no dance experience coming in. She’s the best partner she could’ve been.”

“I am so, so grateful for everything,” Pons said after being eliminated, adding: “Everybody here is the best.”

Her exit comes after Mauricio Umansky and partner Emma Slater were eliminated in Week 6.

Before that, Mira Sorvino and Gleb Savchenko were voted out of the show, while NFL star Adrian Peterson left in Week 4, Tyson Beckford was eliminated in Week 3, Jamie Lynn Spears became the second contestant to leave the show and Matt Walsh was the first celebrity to exit.

Dancing with the Stars airs Tuesdays at 8pm ET/PT on ABC and Disney Plus in the US. You can sign up to Disney Plus here.
