Last Night ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” Ballroom Dance Competition took place and all contestants faced double elimination. It was music icon Janet Jackson night  The series paid tribute to the pop icon’s music for the first time as the eight remaining celebrities performed two routines during Monday’s episode.

Jimmie Allen and his dance partner Emma Slater kicked off the night with a score of 32 out of 40 for their Cha Cha to “Escapade.”  The contestants later faced off in a series of dance-off rounds for two bonus points from the judges that didn’t pay off for either of the contestants , as Allen and Olivia Lane were both eliminated from last nights competition and commented on the competition  the media backstage

Olivia Lane and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy said  “I am honestly shocked I even made it this far and it’s been such a journey, and I’m just so grateful I did the show,” Olivia Jade, 22, told reporters afterward. “It’s just something I’ll remember for the rest of my life.”

“I really found a drive and a work ethic that I think I’ve had since I was young, but maybe I haven’t been able to execute in the last few years,” she added. “It’s been really nice to find that again. And I think hard work really does pay off.”

As far as Allen goes, he stated that he plans to hang up his dancing shoes after being sent home! “I’m done dancing,” the country singer candidly told reporters, adding, “I love being in the ballroom, but I’m just glad I don’t have to dance anymore! I’m done! But I’m taking so much stuff I’ve learned from [Emma], some of the little moves, and throwing them in the shelf, but my main thing [is] I just want everybody who’s still on the show to have fun.”
