Strictly Come Dancing’s Musical Week saw the competition bid an emotional farewell to another couple from the dancefloor.
After the pros dazzled on the dancefloor with a drag queen spectacular celebrating Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the quarter-finals proved to be anything but predictable.
But with just two weeks left to go, the race to the glitterball is tighter than ever before, and it was left in the hands of the public to decide who needed to fight for their place.
So, who exactly was eliminated and who’s left in the competition?
Here’s everything you need to know…
Who left Strictly Come Dancing 2020 tonight?
JJ Chalmers and Amy Dowden became the sixth contestant to be eliminated from the competition after falling into the bottom two.
He was up against Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer, and both had to perform their routines again.
JJ and Amy performed their Charleston to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and Jamie and Karen performed a Jive to Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
The judges voted unanimously to save Jamie and Karen.
Speaking after his elimination, JJ said: ‘I’m unbelievably proud. I never thought I would make it this far, I’ve gotten half decent maybe at something which I had no clue about to begin with and I’ve enjoyed every second of it, it has just been an absolute blast.
‘It’s just a privilege to be in this long. I mean this competition is insane! To be counted among that cast at this stage in particular means the world to me. It’s meant everything.
‘It’s been an unbelievable challenge, well outside my comfort zone but I’ve had this one [Amy] to just keep me in it and I can’t quite express what she means to me.’
A tearful Amy responded: ‘Aw JJ, it has been an absolute honour to be your partner and most importantly friend, throughout your Strictly experience.
‘He is, and everybody would agree, one of the world’s most truest gentlemen. I honestly believe from working with JJ over the last few months I’ve become a better person and I’ve learned so much.
‘The way he faces challenges with such strength and determination, you have helped me for the rest of my life on how to face my own personal challenges.
‘And honestly, I’m so proud of every single step you’ve performed on this floor, I just had the best time.’
