Saddle up, "Dancing of With the Stars" is riding into Country Night.
The remaining eight contestants brought some Southern charm to the ballroom Monday with cowboy hats, rustic boots and classic country tunes, but it was the double elimination that got the town talking.
Co-host Tom Bergeron announced before the first performance of the night that two stars would be getting the boot, and he wasn't horsing around. (No pressure contestants.)
Here is what went down during this week's episode:
Two perfect scores
Before we get into who got axed, let's talk the best dances of the night.
"Harry Potter" alum Evanna Lynch scored three 10s for her emotional rumba with pro partner Keo Motsepe, despite both not knowing much about country music. Dancing to a live performance from Carly Pearce singing "Every Little Thing," the couple exuded grace and poise.
"You are making the kind of transformation that we haven’t seen since the likes of Kelly Osbourne," judge Carrie Ann Inaba raved. "You’re peaking at exactly the right moment. … Watch out, people, this girl is on fire!"
Juan Pablo Di Pace delivered another flawless routine Monday, his third perfect score of the season, following Most Memorable Year Night during Week 3 and last week's Halloween Night.
The Argentinian actor showed off his versatility during a country-themed Charleston with pro partner Cheryl Burke. Set at the country fair, the pair danced to "One Shot" by Hunter Hayes and even had a step sequence in the back of a pickup truck. (It doesn't get more country than that.)
"Is there anything you can't do?" Inaba asked. "You make everything look so effortless and so easy!"
All eyes have been on the brewing romance between Alexis Ren and pro partner Alan Bersten and the couple did not disappoint Monday.
During a pretaped package, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and Bersten went on a horseback ride to get in character for this week's dance. Bersten finally admitted to Ren, "I am falling for you," and the couple shared a kiss onscreen (awww).
The chemistry translated to a romantic samba during a live performance of "Ladies in the '90s" from Lauren Alaina. They scored a 29 out of 30.
For the first time all season, it was the guys going home.
After all the performances, including team dances, co-hosts Bergeron and Erin Andrews revealed three couples in danger: John Schneider and pro partner Emma Slater, DeMarcus Ware and pro Lindsay Arnold and Lynch and partner Motsepe.
Ultimately, Schneider and Ware were given the boot.
Schneider earned a 25 out of 30 for a jazz routine to John Denver's "Thank God I'm a Country Boy." Ware scored a 27 out of 30 for his Viennese Waltz to Chris Stapleton's "Tennessee Whiskey."
"I feel like I won every week," Ware said, while Schneider added, "This was one of the best experiences of my life."
Coming into Monday's show, five women were sent home in a row, the first time in "DWTS" history. Only two female stars remain in the competition – Lynch and Ren.
