'Dancing With the Stars' Season 25, Semifinals Recap: Best Lifts, Kicks, Tricks and Flips!
It's hard to believe we're only one week away from finding out who will be crowned the season 25 mirrorball champion on Dancing With the Stars!

After Monday night's shocking semifinals, which sent Victoria Arlen and her pro partner, Val Chmerkovksiy, home, we were left with the four remaining couples who will advance to the next round of the competition.

But before they take the stage one last time during next week's two-night finale, Et's breaking down all the best choreography moments from last night's show -- including what we think each pair needs to do to improve!

2. Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas: 54/60

3. Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson: 53/60

'DWTS' Pro Lindsay Arnold Suffers Knee Injury, May Be Unable to Perform With Jordan Fisher
Bad news for Dancing With the Stars frontrunners Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold going in to the semi-finals.

Et can confirm that Arnold injured her knee during rehearsals on Sunday, threatening her ability to perform on Monday night's show.

A DWTS source tells Et, "Lindsay injured her knee during camera blocking rehearsal Sunday morning while working on a number with the troupe. Lindsay is hopeful she’ll be cleared to dance tomorrow, but it will likely be touch and go until showtime Monday."

Et can also confirm that Sharna Burgess is learning Arnold's routines in case she can't perform.

In a backstage video released by DWTS, the show's physical therapist tends to Arnold's knee.

"It felt like my whole leg gave out and stopped working," the 23-year-old pro dancer says, describing her injury.

"It's frustrating because it's the semi-finals and I want to dance it with Jordan. And I hope this doesn't stop me from doing that," she adds

“I was too overwhelmed with sadness to complete anything. Everything I was writing was just sounding like a hymn, and it was making me so sad,” DeGraw tells People at the finale of the 2017 Project: Aloft Star competition at Aloft

Five Things to Know About Brett Young, Country Music’s Newest Swoon-Worthy Star
If you listen to country radio, you’ve no doubt heard Brett Young’s catchy No. 1 song “Sleep Without You,” and you probably can’t get it out of your head.

It was a surprising hit for the singer, who on Friday released his self-titled album — his first from a major record label.

“I think it was a very delayed reaction,” Young tells People of the song’s chart-topping status. “It’s one of those things where it doesn’t set in right away.”

Flash forward a few days and the California native found himself performing the hit in front of a large crowd,

Train Release New Single From Upcoming Album

It’s been a while since we’ve gotten any original material from Train, but the pop group just unveiled a brand new single entitled “Play That Song,” which comes off their upcoming album set for release sometime next year.

The most noticeable thing about “Play That Song” right off the bat is that it’s got a lighthearted, pure-pop radio single sound that the band hasn’t delved into too much since their record California 37. Their last album, 2014’s Bulletproof Picasso, was ultimately a disappointment, but its singles like “Angel In Blue Jeans” and “Cadillac, Cadillac” had more of an alternative-pop vibe to it. “Play That Song” is essentially a return to form for Train, and that form has gotten them to the top of the charts for nearly two decades.

“Play That Song” is going to draw some comparisons to artists like Gavin DeGraw, who’s been releasing new material also,

Someone get Merriam-Webster on the phone, because Dancing With the Stars redefined the word “filler” on Tuesday night.

Rather than use the special-night broadcast to showcase more new dance routines, the ABC series instead stretched its first elimination of the season across two unnecessary hours. (Not even American Idol was this self-indulgent! Er, at least not most of the time.)
