After an impressive night of "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars," Apolo Ohno and Emmitt Smith were eliminated in the semi-finals.

"I have great appreciation for the show," eliminated Emmitt said. "After tonight, this show has lost a good chunk of charisma," co-host Tom Bergeron candidly said after the results were revealed.

Ohno did receive a perfect 30 for one of his performances with partner Karina Smirnoff on Monday, but apparently, it wasn't enough. "This competition was hard from the beginning," Ohno said after learning he wouldn't move on to the finals. "Every single person who does this show is a champion because it forces you to become a champion in your own right ... It's been a blessing.

Unsurprisingly, Shawn Johnson and her partner Derek Hough made it through to the finals, as did Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani. At the very last minute, it was also revealed that Kelly Monaco and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy will also be performing in next week's finale, which will be an all-female finale.

One of the highlights of the night was former "Dancing with the Stars" guest judge Paula Abdul who performed a medley of four of her hits, which she called a "dream medley." "I think this is technically one of the coolest things we've all pulled off here," Bergeron said when introducing Abdul.

British boy band The Wanted also took the stage, performing their hits "I Found You" and "I'm Glad You Came."

"Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" will continue with its final week on Monday, Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. ET and Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 9 p.m. ET.
