The stars are fighting for a spot in the final four. Yet, it isn’t going to be easy to get there. Tonight, each remaining five star couple had to dance two dances: an individual dance and an instant dance. The instant dance is a favorite routine from last year. The couples will know the routine that they will have to dance, yet they will not know the music until a few minute before they have to perform it. This is what makes it a favorite. How did the stars do tonight?
