James Van Der Beek's Heart Shake Tonight

Sean Spicer has left the building. But five dancers returned to the "Dancing With the Stars" semi-final, which will go down in history as one of the show's most heartbreaking episodes ever.

All dancing news faded in the light of news from James Van Der Beek, who tearfully announced on the show that his wife Kimberly, pregnant with her sixth child, had miscarriages over the weekend.

The pain continued as night went on. But the show also continued, with each dancer performing two dances in an attempt to make next week's finals. The first was a "redemption dance" chosen by the judges as the worst dance of each pair of repertoire, followed by a new routine.

Even by "Dancing With the Stars" drama standards, tears and pain flowed to a new level on Monday.

This is how it went down.

Alaina was in the hot seat after falling into "bottom two" last week. (The judges took Spicer's scalp and allowed the country singer to continue.) Worse, Alaina had to open the show with her worst dance, a paso-double which she doubled in week 2.

But her dance floor commanded the passing song "What Don't Kill You, Makes You Stronger "featured a different Alaina who rocked a Cat Woman-esque black velvet dress clipped to show off her outrageous thigh high socks.

The final routine was Judge Len Goodman, who trained her in rehearsals, smiling.

"You had beautiful expression and aggression," Goodman said, calling it a "fantastic routine, so much improved."

The judges gave nine points.

First dance: 27/30

For the second dance, Alaina revealed a wien rolled to "humble and kind." She floated out in a clean pink dress and twisted through a number both gracefully and seemingly strenuous.

Goodman swung again, calling it "so sophisticated, so classic." Even with the compliments, she did not get ten, because the judges rolled out nine straight.

Second dance: 27/30

Total points: 54/60 [19659019] Kel Mitchell in front of his tango on Monday night. “/>

Mitchell was forced to dance a tango after refueling it in Week 1, with Judge Bruno Tonioli teaching and telling the actor to be "like a panther". Mitchell was so playful in his tango that he wore giant-red rose designs on his pants as he performed almost perfect moves to "Get Ready." He showed a really perfect dance frame. Tonioli stood and proud at the end.
