Johnny, an Olympic medalist, and Britt were automatically eliminated at the end of theDancing with the Starsbroadcast after receiving the lowest total of judges' scores and home-viewer votes cast live as Dancing with the Starsaired in the Eastern and Central time zones on Monday night.
In addition to Johnny, the other two celebrities who landed in the bottom three based on the combination of judges' scores and home-viewer votes were Disney Channel actress Skai and actress Justina Machado, who then faced possible elimination with their respective pro partners Alan and Sasha Farber.
Derek voted to save Justina and Sasha based on Justina's consistency all season long, and then Carrie Ann also opted to advance Justina and Sasha to next week's Season 29 finale.
Bruno revealed he would have voted the same way if he had to cast the tiebreaker vote.
Prior to the elimination portion of the evening, each of the six remaining celebrity and professional pairings performed in two rounds of competition for the semifinals: a redemption dance and a brand new routine.
In the first round, each couple had to perform a "Redemption" dance selected for them by the Dancing with the Stars judges. The celebrities were asked to improve upon a previously-performed routine they had initially struggled with on the show.
Nev and Jenna's redemption dance was their foxtrot from Week 1, and the judges scored them 30 out 30 possible points for their new and improved number in the first round.
For Round 2, Nev and Jenna danced a beautiful contemporary routine that also received 30 out of 30 possible points from Derek, Carrie Ann and Bruno.

Derek said Nev and Jenna's contemporary routine was wonderful to witness and to watch, and he said the "aced it." Bruno added that he was totally engrossed in the performance, and Nev "rose to the occasion," according to Carrie Ann.
Kaitlyn and Artem initially danced their paso doble from Week 7 and earned 30 points from the judges.
While rehearsing for their paso doble, Carrie Ann told the couple her judging or criticism on the show is "never personal," which is a comment Artem had made in the press that flashed across headlines.
Kaitlyn and Artem then took the stage with a powerful contemporary routine, which received an additional 30 points from the judges. The routine paid tribute to Kaitlyn's childhood best friend who passed away in a tragic car accident at age 18.
Carrie Ann said Kaitlyn danced from her heart and Artem had choreographed a very tender contemporary routine. Derek thanked Kaitlyn for bringing such emotion to the ballroom, and Bruno said it was a "fantastic" number.
Justina and Sasha finished in third place on the judges' leaderboard with a total of 58 out of 60 points.
Justina and Sasha first reprised their tango from Week 7, and the judges scored them 28 points for their improvement.
For the second round, Justina and Sasha danced a 30-point worthy contemporary routine.
Bruno commented on Justina's "freedom of movement" in the contemporary dance, and Carrie Ann gushed, "What is a 10? What is perfection? It's when magic happens on the dance floor. That did that for me tonight."
Skai and Alan tied for fourth place on the judges' leaderboard with Johnny and Britt after each couple tallied a total score of 57 points for the night.
Skai and Alan's redemption dance was their Week 6 cha cha. After receiving 27 points for the cha cha, Skai and Alan performed a lovely Viennese waltz that earned them an additional 30 points.
The judges agreed Skai came across elegant and graceful in the Viennese waltz, and Carrie Ann gushed about Skai showing her vulnerability like never before.
It was clear Skai danced for herself this time around, and Derek called the performance "exquisite" and "perfection."
