The final four contestants on Dancing with the Stars shook their hips and perfected lifts this week, but only three could move on...
For Hope Solo, hope ran out
Hope Solo fought her way back to make a great run at the mirrorball trophy, but there was no way Ricki Lake and J.R. Martinez were sitting the finals out, and Rob Kardashian deserved a spot based on his rainbow-loving, booty-shaking dance from Monday night's semifinals.
Here's how the quest to the finals played out...
The first couple of the night to safely make it to the final three was Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke, followed by Ricki Lake and Derek Hough -- was there any doubt over these two couples?
Hope Solo and Maks Chmerkovskiy were put in the bottom two with J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff.
J.R. Martinez and the words "bottom two" just don't mix. His fall from the leaderboard was primarily due to a twisted ankle that left his dances a bit shaky Monday night.
The only bright side here is that when you put Hope Solo and J.R. Martinez in the bottom two together, you know who is going to come out on top -- J.R. Martinez.
What a race to the mirrorball trophy this is going to be!
J.R. Martinez, Ricki Lake and Rob Kardashian will go toe-to-toe in the finals next week, which promises to be a night where anything can happen.
Don't count anyone out at this point -- it's anyone's dance to win.
We want to hear from you -- who do you think has the talent to win the mirrorball trophy?
We think Rob Kardashian could go all the way!
