Watch 'Dancing With the Stars' Judges React to Shocking Simone Biles Elimination

Watch 'Dancing With the Stars' Judges React to Shocking Simone Biles Elimination

Olympic champion Simone Biles & Sasha Farber danced to Jive on the song "Faith" by Stevie Wonder featuring Ariana Grande, chose by Carrie Ann. Even though she earned a ideal score for both of her dances, Simone Biles was voted out of the ballroom.

Their feedback on the gymnast's paso doble prompted host Bergeron to state: "I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments, you didn't". On Monday, May 15, the remaining four dancers competed in the semifinals for a spot in the finals. "I've been going nonstop since the Olympics, so I'll have a week off!"

The "DWTS" elimination leaves former baseball player David Ross, NFL star Rashad Jennings, and singer Normani Kordei in the finals. Bruno said Rashad's "exceeding all expectations".

So naturally, they send Carrie Ann into Simone and Sasha's rehearsal!

However, the Olympian was at one stage criticized by judges for dancing "too perfectly".

Tonight, Simone delivered the raw emotion that Carrie Ann had been looking for - not once, but twice, earning flawless 40s for both her jive and her rumba.

"More than enough. Plenty of times", Kordei says as she holds the "I Have" side of her paddle. "I've matured and I can't wait to go home and I'll be back next week for the finale".

In an Entertainment Tonight behind-the-scenes clip, Inaba told Biles she "loved" her comment because of how honest it was. He was "Mr. Smooth", hitting all the steps with technique and footwork. Len added, "No one has tried harder, worked harder or entertained more". "I don't know what else I can do". "We still became family, and, I mean, there's only one victor at the end of the day, but I think that all of us can take something away from this show besides just the Mirror Ball Trophy". But even on a winning night, there are no words to describe the shock that set in as Simone Biles was eliminated, just shy of the finale.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.

Chmerkovskiy explained that the 20-year-old musician wants to show how that experience "has played in motivating her [to] make her family proud because of all the sacrifices they made for her". See you next week - keep dancing!
