J.R. Martinez is in the Dancing With the Stars semifinals.

Sorry if that spoiled the suspense, but the guy got two perfect 30s last night. Nowhere but in The Twilight Zone could the actor and Iraq war veteran not make it into the final four.

So, with that out of the way, let's focus on the real drama: Presuming Ricki Lake was golden, as well, who was out? Hope Solo, despite dancing a Len Goodman-approved jive? Nancy Grace, because she came in dead last? Rob Kardashian, because he doesn't have Nancy's rabid fan base?

Nancy's grace period is over.

As Len predicted last night, it was Cinderella time for the HLN host, who far exceeded expectations (including her own) by making it this far.

"I am so proud, but I really cannot take the credit. It's been all Tristan, from the get-go," she said of first-year pro Tristan MacManus. "And the whole crew at DWTS, my family out here to take care of my twins so I could dance, all of you—and especially to you, Tristan."

"We've had a blast," the Irish cutie agreed. "We'd just like to thank everybody. Thanks for being so welcoming to me, and also to Nancy. We really had a fun time and it's the support we get from you all that really pushes us to do it...It's not about being the best, it's about doing our best, and I think that's what we did."

So, into the semifinals then go J.R. and Karina Smirnoff, Hope and Maks "Love Fest" Chmerkovskiy, Ricki and Derek Hough, and Rob and Cheryl Burke.

Of course, what we want to know right now is whether or not Kim Kardashian plans to show up with the rest of the family to support Rob in next week's semifinals. But...we'll have to wait and see.

Tonight also featured performances from Flo Rida and—perfect timing—Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson-inspired The Immortal World Tour.
