By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/21/2017 

Dancing with the Stars eliminated Drew Scott and his professional partner Emma Slater before the Season 25 finale during Monday night's broadcast on ABC.

The Property Brothers star and Emma became the tenth couple ousted from the competition based on the combination of Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during last week's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast immediately afterward.

"There's no way I could've done anything that I did out here without [Emma]," Drew said following his ouster.

"It's been such a ride. I mean, look at the amazing, amazing talent. I can't even believe I'm here with these guys. So thank you. Thank you to the judges and crew and everybody. You've made this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."

Last week, Drew and Emma had landed in fifth -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard with a total of 48 out of 60 possible points.

Actor and race car driver Frankie Muniz and partner Witney Carson were, once again, the other couple in jeopardy of elimination prior to Drew and Emma's exit last night; however, they were not necessarily one of the bottom-two couples this week based on the judges' scores and America's votes.

Monday night's performance show featured the four finalists each performing a "Redemption Style" dance in which a couple attempted to improve upon a previously-performed routine on the show as well as a "Freestyle Dance."

There are no rules for the competing couples in the freestyle round, as lifts are approved and multiple dancers can be recruited to perform in the routines.

The fan-favorite freestyles are usually a blast to watch, and the choreography, costumes and music selections are catered to fit each celebrity's interests, background, skills, personality or emotional story.

The celebrity and professional pairings attempted to earn points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and special guest judge Julianne Hough.

Two couples tied for first place on the judges' leaderboard on Monday night with a perfect total score of 80 points.

Singer and actor Jordan Fisher and partner Lindsay Arnold topped the leaderboard after perfecting their Week 3 Charleston routine set to "Bad Man" by Pitbull featuring Robin Thicke, Joe Perry and Travis Barker that received 40 points from the judges.

Jordan and Lindsay followed that up with a glamorous, showstopping freestyle to "Puttin' on the Ritz 2017 (Jazzy Radio Mix)" by Taco featuring tomX that also earned 40 points from the judging panel.

Internationally-recognized violinist Lindsey Stirling and partner Mark Ballas also conquered the competition after receiving 40 points for their redemption dance and an additional 40 points for their freestyle routine.

Lindsey and Mark first danced a reprisal of their Week 2 quickstep to "Barflies at the Beach" by Royal Crown Revue.

And for their freestyle, the couple danced a jaw-dropping number in which Lindsey and Mark pretended to lead an orchestra before getting wrapped up in the music and dancing. Lindsey even played the violin during the performance set to "Remember the Name" by Fort Minor featuring Styles of Beyond/"Palladio" by Escala (Medley).

Frankie and Witney claimed third place on the judges' leaderboard with 76 total points -- 38 points for their redemption dance and 38 points for their freestyle.

Frankie and Witney initially danced a new and improved version of their Week 1 foxtrot to "I Won't Dance" by Frank Sinatra. The pair later performed a strong and powerful freestlye to "Run Boy Run" by Woodkid.

Drew and Emma finished the night in fourth -- and last -- place with a total of 75 points from the judges.

Drew and Emma's 36-point worthy redemption dance was an encore performance of their Week 1 paso doble to "Get Ready" by Rayelle. The couple then received 39 points for their fun and funky freestyle, which was set to "The Ding-Dong Daddy of the D-Car Line" by Cherry Poppin' Daddies.

Len called the night of performances "a war on the floor," saying he had no idea who's going to win the Dancing with the Stars season.

In addition, Monday night's show featured special musical performances by Pitbull and Fifth Harmony with their latest single "Por Favor" as well as Alexander Jean -- which is Mark Ballas' band with his wife BC Jean -- with "Wouldn't Change Anything." Julianne Hough performed a dance while Mark and BC Jean sang.

On Tuesday night's "Christmas Spectacular" finale of DWTS from 9-11PM ET/PT, the remaining three couples will perform two more routines for judges' scores and online votes, and then either Lindsey, Jordan or Frankie will be crowned champion and win the coveted mirrorball trophy.
