DWTS 2017 Cast Faces First Elimination: Who Went Home?

By Jim Donnelly | Mar 28th, 2017

Who went home on Dancing with the Stars? After the Season 24 premiere, Week 2 brought even more dancing fun and, unfortunately, the first elimination of 2017. The entire Dancing with the Stars 2017 cast gave it their all once more. Let's do a DWTS recap of Week 2 with the top dances of the night along with the judges' scores for each and every team. Normani Kordei and Rashad Jennings tied for the evening's top score while Chris Kattan was the low for the second week in a row. Now, let's take a look at the DWTS Results and Eliminations!


Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev (Cha Cha): In her pre-dance video, Nancy said she's not used to getting compliments. Well, she better get used to it fast. Len felt the routine was nothing fancy, but it was well-danced. Julianne and Bruno want a little more control, but were still impressed. Carrie Ann felt that Nancy found herself as the dance progressed. Scores of 7-7-7-7 from the judges for a total of 28.

Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko (Foxtrot): Julianne thinks Erika has such a presence out there. Bruno called the dance a "sex trot" with beautiful, elongated lines. Carrie Ann loved that they got to see Erika dance this week but warns about her getting wobbly. Len called it a Beverly Hills foxtrot. Scores of 7-7-7-7 from the judges for a total of 28.

Charo and Keo Motsepe (Paso) Carrie Ann worships Charo and said she was a step ahead of Keo the entire time. It was like watching her solo, but she didn't mind at all. Len like the passion and the drama. It was a little frantic, but it still gave him great joy. Bruno called it a tornado though Charo criticized his accent. Scores of 6-6-7-6 from the judges for a total of 25.

Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd: (Foxtrot) Carrie Ann saw improvement from last week but Nick still needs to breathe when he moves. Len felt the dance was madness on the floor and he wants him to just come out and dance. Julianne agrees they need to simplify things, but she loves the partnership. Bruno felt the dance was like a rabbit being chased by a fox. Scores of 7-5-7-6 from the judges for a total of 25.

Heather Morris and Alan (subbing for the injured Maksim Chmerkovskiy) (Jive) Len was a little cranky after this one, as he wanted more Jive. Julianne, on the other hand, loved the dance. Bruno felt the second half of the Jive was brilliant because she was in the character. Carrie Ann disagreed. She felt Heather came out strong and perhaps lost some momentum after the section with the two other female dancers. Scores of 8-6-8-8 from the judges for a total of 30.

Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess: (Viennese Waltz) Julianne felt the dance was beautiful and she sees something developing with these two. Carrie Ann thought it was poetry in motion. Len felt it was all too personal. He did say it was better than Week 1 though. Scores of 8-6-8-7 from the judges for a total of 29.

Simone Biles and Sasha Farber: (Cha Cha) Bruno thought smoldering Simone set off all the fire alarms during her dance. Carrie Ann thought it was nice, but felt Simone was off a step. Len enjoyed it very much. Julianne didn't necessarily feel Simone, but what she saw was beautiful. Scores of 7-7-7-8 from the judges for a total of 29.

Chris Kattan and Witney Carson: (Jazz) Carrie Ann is inspired at how thoroughly entertaining Chris is. Len added it was better than last week. Bruno said it was like watching Marilyn Monroe dance with Cecil B. Demented. Scores of 6-5-6-5 from the judges for a total of 22.

Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: (Cha Cha) Len thought the full routine was terrific. Julianne says Normani feels it so much. Bruno says she was flying high even though she had a long trip to Japan and back during the week. Carrie Ann felt Val was truly dancing with "a star" with this one. Scores of 8-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 32.

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater: (Viennese Waltz) Julianne felt the dance was so hot and loves that Rashad is leading like a man. Bruno said it was like fifty shades of Viennese Waltz. Carrie Ann feels Rashad has a really good connection with Emma. Len felt it was a bit flat-footed at times, but the bottom line is that he liked it. Scores of 8-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 32.

Mr. T and Kym Herjavec (Paso): Set in a boxing ring, the routine didn't have the punch of the top dances of the night, but there was improvement from Week 1. Carrie Ann felt Mr. T hit every step and he's growing. Len feels Mr. T is the spirit of the show. Julianne could see the intensity and focus in every step. Scores of 6-5-6-5 from the judges for a total of 22.

David Ross and Lindsay Arnold: (Cha Cha): Carrie Ann loved the energy, but wants David to be bigger. Len wants him to work on his footwork, but he still feels he passed second base. Julianne thoroughly enjoyed the dance and she loves David's charisma. Bruno knows David put on a show, but he needs to improve his footwork. Scores of 7-6-7-7 from the judges for a total of 27.

Elimination Time: At the end of the night, Chris and Witney had to bid adieu to the ballroom. See his Dancing Journey here!
