By Steve Dove | May 8th, 2014

It's the Dancing with the Stars semi-finals and famed director/choreographer Kenny Ortega joins as a guest judge on American Icons Night. Kenny was mentored by the legendary Gene Kelly, partnered with the iconic Michael Jackson and has choreographed some of the most famous dance routines in cinema history, so he will bring a level of expertise to the ballroom that will keep the competitors on their toes.

American Icons Night will have each couple dancing twice to iconic American songs, with one couple facing elimination and the remaining pairs heading to the finals!

To get you in the competitive spirit, here are some of the highest scoring dances of the season so far!



James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd truly let it go in this beautiful dance on Disney Night, giving them the first perfect score of the season!



Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have been a force to be reckoned with this entire season and this fierce tango earned them their first perfect score!



Olympian Charlie White and his pro dancer partner Sharna Burgess had often been right on the cusp of that perfect score, but in Week 8, they finally did it with this impressive quickstep!



Amy Purdy and Derek Hough have been an inspiration all season long, but this gorgeous performance and perfect score truly solidified their chances as top contenders.
