The semi-finals are already here?” – of Dancing With the Stars: Would a rumored groin injury be the downfall of one of Season 19’s shiniest stars, Alfonso Ribeiro? Could 76-year-old Tommy Chong continue to defy the odds, the judges and his own ballroom limitations to escape elimination yet again?

17 November 2014 1:08 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Looks like Alfonso Ribeiro's recent back injury during a Dancing with the Stars rehearsal is a lot more serious than anyone anticipated.

In this brand-new footage of the rehearsal during which he injured himself, Ribeiro is seen limping and needing his partner Witney Carson just to stand up and walk.

"It took my breath away," the 43-year-old Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star says about the injury. "I started to feel incredible pain in my lower back, and every movement just started to just hurt more and more."

"You know, I really want to keep going," he adds. "But I just don't know if my body's going to let me continue."

But he's definitely not throwing in the towel just yet.

"Hey #TeamWitfonso thanks 4 all the love," he tweeted Saturday. "I'm working really hard to be able to dance Monday. Keep the prayers coming. Love you all »

15 November 2014 10:25 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Video: Tommy Chong Explains His Suggestive Remark on Dancing with the Stars

After wrapping up his suggestive dance with Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd on Monday night's episode of Dancing with the Stars, Tommy Chong capped things off with a suggestive remark to the judges - which had the audience roaring with laughter but left Burgess and Murgatroyd looking mortified. What was he thinking?! People caught up with the Cheech & Chong star, 76, backstage after the show to ask him just that. And it turns out he's been reining himself in this whole season - acting out in rehearsals but holding back on the show in the interest of decorum. Well, that went out the window Monday night. »

Judging from the reaction of him and pro partner Peta Murgatroyd, he didn't see that coming. Did you? -Break- 'DWTS' shocker: Did you predict another perfect score for Janel Parrish? Six of our users did: tonyrandall, Cordell Martin, Mike Warren, TopChefFan, dsps84, and Ryan Lapierre correctly predicted all of this week's outcomes, including the surprise elimination of Lea Thompson. She was second-to-last in the judges' scores last week, which has been one of the most perilous spots for contestants this season, while last place has been a surprise good-luck charm: stars at the bottom have only been eliminated twice.

10 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars on Monday night featured the six remaining couples dancing one "America's Choice" dance and a trio with one of the other pros.

Dancing With The Stars Recap

Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson danced a foxtrot Monday night. The two brought a combination of class and fun to the ballroom routine. However, it doesn’t particularly stand out as much as dances in this late stage in the competition should. Scores: 9+9+9+10=37

Taking on the Viennese Waltz this week was Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd. Though he’s been shaky the last couple of weeks, the veteran comedian gave a solid performance, stumbling just once towards the end of the routine. Scores: 7+8+7+7=29

Per America’s request, Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev did a samba while channeling sexy cats. Lea, taking the advice from the judges, made an effort to let go a bit more throughout the dance. But, »
