Dancing with the Stars eliminated Terra Jole and her professional partner Sasha Farber during Monday night's Season 23 semifinals performance show on ABC.

The Little Women: LA star and Sasha became the ninth couple eliminated from the competition based on the combination of Dancing with the Stars judges' scores and home viewer votes they had received during last week's performance show.

"Sasha has been extremely supportive throughout this entire process and honestly, I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Sasha, and I'm just so grateful to have him as my partner," Terra said following her ouster.

Terra and Sasha consistently landed in the upper half of the judges' leaderboard each week leading up to their Week 10 elimination. They went out with a bang last night considering they earned their highest total score of the season with two perfect 30s from DWTS judges Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

Retired NFL wide receiver Calvin Johnson Jr. and partner Lindsay Arnold were the other couple in jeopardy prior to the announcement Terra and Sasha were going home instead, but Calvin and Lindsay were not necessarily one of the bottom-two couples based on judges' scores and America's votes.

For Monday night's broadcast, the remaining celebrity and professional pairings each performed an individual routine and then a unique dance for the show's famous "Trio Round," during which each couple teams up with a DWTS Troupe member or previously-eliminated pro.

In the "Trio Round" this season, each couple earned a perfect score of 30 points from the judges.

Terra and Sasha tied for first place on the leaderboard with Olympic gold gymnast Laurie Hernandez and partner Val Chmerkovskiy. Both couples earned a total of 60 points from the judges.

Terra and Sasha first took the stage with a 30-point worthy rumba routine, followed by their trio tango with pro Artem Chigvintsev.

Laurie and Val initially performed a foxtrot that brought the entire ballroom to tears since the Olympian had just lost her grandmother. The judges gave them 30 points, and even Tom Bergeron complimented Laurie's courage and ability to get through the dance.

For Laurie and Val's trio, they danced a samba with the pro's older brother Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Third place on the leaderboard went to professional race car driver James Hinchcliffe and partner Sharna Burgess. The couple received a total of 59 points from the judges, which included 29 points for their individual Argentine tango.

For their trio, James and Sharna danced the jive with pro Jenna Johnson.

Country singer Jana Kramer and partner Gleb Savchenko finished in fourth place on the leaderboard with 58 total points.

Jana and Gleb first performed a quickstep routine that earned 28 points from the judges. They followed that with a trio paso doble dance featuring DWTS Troupe member Alan Bersten.

Calvin and Lindsay landed in fifth -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard with 56 total points. The couple only earned 26 points for their individual tango due to a small mistake Calvin made, however, they redeemed themselves with an impressive salsa featuring pro Witney Carson.
