And then there were three.

After eleven weeks of sequins, sweat, tears, and even more sequins, the remaining Dancing With the Stars contestants faced off tonight on part one of the epic two-night finale extravaganza.

 In their second to last chance to wow the judges, our final four contestants competed in three different dance rounds: A judges' pick, a samba relay and the always-popular freestyle. However, one celebrity's dancing skills were not enough to make it into tomorrow night's season 17 finale.

Bill Engvall!

Despite showing off some improved skills on their Viennese waltz, the Blue Collar comedian was booted from the competition, just one night shy of the season 17's final hour of dancing.  We're not going to lie, we still have no idea how Bill and his dancing partner Emma Slater made it this far in the competition. Wiggling and disco dancing around the floor is not the same as ballroom dancing. Sorry, not sorry.

That means that Amber Riley, Corbin Bleu, and Jack Osbourne are our three official finalists for Dancing With the Stars' 17th season. These three remaining couples will perform a highly anticipated, fusion dance before a winner is crowned on Tuesday's season finale.

Are you sad to see Bill leave the competition? Which contestant do you think has what it takes to win the mirror ball trophy? Sound off in the comments below!
