DWTS, DANCING WITH THE STARS, Lea Thompson, Artem Chigvintsev

ABC/Craig Sjodin

What the heck is going on?!

Not only was Tommy Chong not injured so badly that he couldn't dance, but it was announced near the top of the show that he and partner Peta Murgatroyd were safe! Sure, the guy's adorable, and he and Peta are adorable together, but he's by far the worst dancer still on the show.

Originally, it was thought that Tommy would have to drop out of the show due to an injury he sustained during last week's show. He explained tonight that there was a cyst behind his knee that had burst, and that a doctor had given him the go-ahead to continue dancing. His Viennese waltz got him a respectable 29, and his trio dance with Peta and Sharna Burgess – during which he did almost nothing but sit and wiggle his hips a bit – garnered a huge laugh from all the judges and a 28 out of 40. Their total for the night was 57.

Since Tommy was safe, we had to say goodbye to Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintse, who have been pretty good from the beginning and were nothing short of pretty good tonight. The pair earned a 34 for their samba and a 36 for their very sexy Paso Doble, which put them at a total of 70. 

Meanwhile, on a more positive note, Sadie Robertson ended her trio routine in tears after having forgotten some of the steps. However, that clearly didn't matter, because she, partner Mark Ballas, and Emma Slater walked away from their trio routine with a perfect score, bringing their total for the night to 73! Len Goodman called it the best trio dance of the night, and said he wished he had an 11 paddle. "You did everything perfect," Julianne Hough said.

So what did you guys think? Are you sad to see Lea go? Do you think (and hope) Tommy will be eliminated next week? Let us know in the comments!
