'Dancing with the Stars' semi-final results show - Live Blog

After performing three intense dances during last night's Dancing with the Stars semi-finals, the four remaining celebrity couples wait with anticipation to find out who will get a chance to become the ultimate champion.

Having heard the feedback from judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, it's up to the viewer votes to decide who gets to stay and whose journey towards the mirrorball ends tonight. Will it be Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, JR Martinez or Hope Solo? Stay with Digital Spy live from 9/8c as we find out!

22:00 So that's it for the semi-finals! Stay tuned next Monday night when Rob, Ricki and JR compete in the finals!

Hope Solo
21:59 And it's the end of the road for Hope and Maks, as expected! Ah well, they had a good run. "This competition is one of the toughest competitions I've ever been a part of. I'm grateful, it was an amazing opportunity," Hope says following her exit. "There's so many people to thank - my dear friends, my family. We have the most amazing fanbase. I'm going to go back and instead of trying to win a mirrorball trophy, I'm going to try to win a gold medal this summer at the Olympics."

Maks adds: "Thank you for your determination, will and everything else and I'm sorry. I wish I could have been better for you, but it is what it is. It was an amazing journey."

21:58 It's time for the final results. After the combination of viewer votes and judges' scores, the hosts are ready to reveal who will be headed home.

21:52 Predictably, it's JR and Karina who are in jeopardy, while Ricki and Derek get their pass to the finals. To be fair, that's definitely the right decision - even if JR's lacklustre evening was attributed to that painful ankle injury (and I do feel bad for him).

DWTS S13E17: Derek Hough and Ricki Lake
21:48 It's time to take a look at Ricki and Derek and JR and Karina's performances from Monday night, before the hosts reveal which of the couples will be going through to the final and who's still in danger.

21:44 It's time for The Muppets promo. After Tom Bergeron talks with Gonzo, the Muppets (yes, as a group) perform a song from the film. Kermit takes piano with Miss Piggy accompanying. I'm not a Muppets fan, so this is all a bit weird to me. Some actual, live dancers also hit the floor - I suppose to make up for the fact that you can only shoot the puppets from the waist up.

21:33 It's time for an uplifting AT&T Spotlight performance, featuring Footloose's Kenny Wormald and the male dancers of The Gold School, many of whom have been bullied because of their passion for dance. However, they manage to find a community with one another. Kyle, David, Jacob and Max from The Gold School then take to the dancefloor with four of the Dancing with the Stars house dancers for a lively performance to Kool Moe Dee's 'How Ya Like Me Now?'

Derek Hough
21:28 Amanda Wolf's winning outfits don't seem like much of anything special on Derek and Anna, but then, I'm no designer. I also can't really pinpoint the type of dance they're doing - it seems to be a mixture of tango, cha cha and perhaps a bit of waltz. Again, totally a shot in the dark.

21:26 It's time for the results of the Macy's Design A Dance competition, with Anna Trebunskaya and Derek Hough performing a dance to Lady GaGa's 'Bad Romance' while wearing the winning garments. First of all, though, it's time for Carson Kressley's return - he goes behind-the-scenes with the finalists to give advice on their outfits.

21:23 Ricki Lake and Derek Hough talk to Brooke Burke backstage, along with JR Martinez and Karina Smirnoff. Both pairs have high hopes for the finals (and both most likely will). I'm pulling for a Ricki and Derek win, personally.

Hope Solo
21:17 We get a little look "behind the curtain" on how this week went for Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. It's not particularly exciting, mind, but fair enough. There seems to have been some tension (again) between Maks and Len, though nothing comes of it. It's then predictably revealed that Hope and Maks are still in danger of going home tonight.

21:13 It's time for Cobra Starship to perform their single 'You Make Me Feel' live. I know they're supposed to be hip, but for some reason even the keytar player isn't convincing me with this.

Rob Kardashian
21:06 Rob and Cheryl are the first to hear their results this evening. After a quick replay of last nights' judges scores for their performances, host Brooke Burke announces that the pair have made it through to the finals.

21:02 There's an inflatable rainbow on the floor, which means the dance that the judges want to see again is Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke's samba! Admittedly, it was pretty fun... and incredibly camp.

21:00 We're live in the ballroom! Who do you think is headed home? It seems like a done deal for Hope after last night, but surprise things have been known to happen... sound off in the comments section below!
