Kendall Schmidt (voiceover): This week on Dancing with the Stars (clips from Week 12 play)... All of our stars learned two more new dances to perform for our guest judge, Ethan Ferguson. The 10's were flying as each dance received at least one perfect 10!

Brittany Brannon (voiceover): Tonight... We reveal which of our four semi-finalists have made it through to the finals. To do that, we must sadly send one of them home (more clips shown). With such a tight race, which of our promising contestants will meet the cruelest cut of the season? LIVE! This is... Dancing with the Stars!

The opening sequence starts. Hank is first shown picking up Edyta. Sandra then does an elegant spin with Derek. Steve jokes around with Chelsie. Cher does a fierce pose while Maksim looks on. Zooey and Damian do a sexy, demure pose. Zac and Peta do a large jump. Tina fools around with Louis. Tom casually holds Kym. Hugh gives Karina a close look. Gaga does a vampire-esque pose on Dmitry. Logan does a secret handshake with Jeanine. Lil' Wayne holds Nicole under his legs. Lee does a ballroom pose with Corky. Katy and Mark spin around, jumping. Rihanna and Val go close to each others mouths. Arnold almost uses Cheryl as a weight. Cody does a dynamic, fun pose with Julianne. Curtis performs a New Yorker with Anna. Oprah giggles around with Alec. Reese and Tony close in a smooth pose. The DWTS logo is shown.

Brittany and Kendall are seen standing in front of the judges' table.

Kendall: Hello, and Welcome to Dancing with the Stars! I'm Kendall Schmidt.
Brittany: And I'm Brittany Brannon.
Kendall: On Wednesday night, our stars danced their hearts out to try and earn their way into next week's finals! 
Brittany: And on Wednesday, Ethan Ferguson, who won the Guest Judge Contest, stopped by as this week's guest judge! He was such a fun judge!
Kendall: Tonight, we eliminate either Sandra, Steve, Cher, or Tom! How could we be faced with such a tough decision?
Brittany: Sadly, one of them will have to go so we can move on to the Finals next week! But right now, let's get to tonight's encore!

Brittany: And for that we go to head judge, Len Goodman. Len, which dance do you think deserves the encore for the semi-finals?
Len: Well, to save time, Cher and Maksim provided a very elegant Waltz on Wednesday. We want them back! (HUGE applause from audience)
Kendall: Yeah, man! Please welcome back Cher and Maks with their Waltz! (applause continues)

Cher is in a long white dress. Maksim is in a tux. The pair dances to “Are You Lonesome Tonight” by Elvis Presley. Once finished they get large applause from the audience.

Kendall: Man, I seriously hope good things come to team Chmer!
Brittany:  Me too! Now, Cher's Waltz wasn't the only highlight from Wednesday's episode. We also saw all four of our semi-finalists battle it out for their spot in the finals!
Kendall: Now, if you didn't catch our episode on Wednesday, here's a little montage of what you missed out on. Take a look...

A montage/recap of all of the dances from Week 12 are played. A leaderboard recap is also played. Confessionals start playing (with our stars after their second dances).

Tom: (panting) If we don't make it to the finals, I'll just possibly die!
Cher: (smiling) I hope that Waltz was enough for everyone to put me into the finals! I have something crazy planned for my freestyle!
Sandra: That was so empowering being able to do that Paso! J-Lo's song was really fun to dance to. Hope it was good enough!
Steve: (stern look, Russian accent) I believe we were very good out there. Very good is what I like to see. Next week, we shall be extremely good! Dah! (Chelsie laughs)

Confessionals end

Kendall: Time to get to the first results of the night! This week, a bunch of you voted online at over the past two days with your votes.
Brittany: But still, it's pretty pitiful. We know you guys can step it up!
Kendall: Right now, let's reveal the first couple that is moving on to the finals (audience cheers).

Dramatic elimination theme music plays

Brittany: The first couple into the finals is... (long pause; camera pan the couples) ...Cher and Maksim! (cheers; Cher screams 'Oh My God!')

Regular lighting returns

Kendall: No freaking way! Cher is in the finals! Isn't she 65? 
Brittany: Kendall! Geez, manners! Right now we have a former DWTSGame Runner-Up here to sing! No, it's not me (audience laughs).
Kendall: Dream on! Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Ke$ha! (major cheers)

Ke$ha performs "Blow" while her dancers do some 'unique' choreography all over the stage. Ke$ha can't help but dance along with them. Kendall and Brittany walk over to her when she finishes.

Kendall: Ke$ha, everybody! Hey, Kesh, remember when I beat you at dancing?
Ke$ha: (laughs) Shut up, Dipstick!
Brittany: Would you do the honors of making this important announcement, girl?
Ke$ha: Oh, alright then. To all of the viewers who want to dive deeper into the lives of our stars during next season... you're in luck! Valerie Hashburntar will be starting her own show, DWTSGame Talk, which promises to be lots of fun. Sounds like a good show!
Kendall: Thanks, Kesh! See ya in a few!
Brittany: Right now, we want to show you a video of Valerie preparing for her new show...

VT plays. We see that Valerie has spent her 2 weeks off preparing for her new talk show. She describes it as 'Jay Leno' for the DWTSGame. She has many fun things planned and can't wait to start it in a few weeks when Season 5 starts.

Kendall: (now backstage) Let's get to talking with a couple who has learned that they have made it to the finals (Cher and Maksim stand next to Kendall)! Chmer, first of all, congrats on making it all the way! Any hints on what you have planned?
Cher: (laughs) Would it really be a surprise if I gave it away, Kendall?
Kendall: Um... No, not really.
Cher: Well then, let your imagination wonder until Wednesday! (winks)
Kendall: Yes ma'am! Now, Maks... You've finally made the finals on our game. Did you ever expect that Cher would be the woman to do it for you?
Maksim: Absolutely not. I never expected Cher to make it so far (audience laughs)! No, honestly, she has been such a good student and a great learner. I have no problems with her at all. I know we'll be able to please next week!
Kendall: Good luck! I honestly can't wait. Well, Let's go out to Kendall for to find out who else has reached the finals. Brittany?

Brittany: (giddy) Kendall, this is so exciting! Let's find out the fate of our three remaining couples. Now, as you can see, we have 3 couples left up here and 2 spots left in the finals; you do the math! We will now call the name of the last couple that is safe from elimination and into the finals! And they are... (camera pans Sandra, Steve, and Tom) ...SANDRA and DEREK! (cheers; Sandra screams)
Kendall: (now onstage) Which means Steve and Chelsie and Tom and Kym are still in jeopardy, with one of them leaving very soon, sadly (audience boos).

Brittany: No! I don't want to lose either of these guys! I'm sad now.
Kendall: It'll be OK, Brittany. Right now, back with another song, please welcome Ke$ha! (audience cheers)

Ke$ha sing "The Harold Song". Her dancers do a sweet dance to it.

Kendall: Well... The time has come for the cruelest elimination of the season.
Brittany: Steve and Chelsie and Tom and Kym are still in jeopardy of leaving. One of them WILL leave, sadly.
Kendall: Before we start, who do the judges think should go? Len, what if Steve were to go home?
Len: It would be such a shame! I have enjoyed Steve's antics all season and after Wednesday, have learned he can be very serious. I honestly can't pin which one is safe, yet I hope by some miracle both of you are safe.
Brittany: Bruno, what would happen if we lost Tom and Kym?
Bruno: Is that a joke! It would be a huge loss to the finals! Tom has been so entertaining and through thick and thin has always managed to pull through. I really hope that doesn't stop now!

Kendall: Time to get on with it. Onto the results...
Brittany: Oh man!

Dramatic elimination music plays

Kendall: (camera goes to Steve) Steve and Chelsie. Steve, this week, you've seriously proven you can be very committed to a dance with your Argentine Tango. In reward, the judges gave you an almost perfect score. Will you be around to hoist up the mirrorball next week?
Brittany: (camera goes to Tom) Tom and Kym. Tom, this week, you got down and dirty with two energetic dances. One of them scored a perfect score. After a season of great scores and comments, has your luck ran out at the worst possible moment?
Kendall: (camera pans Steve and Tom) Steve and Chelsie... Tom and Kym... On this twelvth week of competition, the couple with the lowest overall total and therefore leaving right now is...

Elimination music plays and camera pans in

Kendall: Steve and Chelsie. (audience boos and gives Steve a Standing O, he bows in appreciation)
Brittany: Which means Tom and Kym, you're officially finalists! (audience cheers; Steve and Tom hug goodbye, as do Chelsie and Kym)

Kendall: Steve and Chelsie, come on down you guys! (Steve and Chelsie walk down to Kendall and Brittany; the crowd is still on their feet)
Brittany: (hugs Steve) Steve, I've seriously loved this season because of you, and now I won't get to see you again next week! How ever will I survive?
Steve: Brittany Brannon, you are seriously too sweet. I'm going to miss the fun times we've shared! But, I'm so glad that those three are the finalists (the finalists smile). I bow out gracefully.
Kendall: Chelsie, what were your thoughts of the season?
Chelsie: How upsetting! I had such a great Freestyle planned out! Anyways, Steve Carell may very well be the funniest man on the planet! I loved working with him. He is honestly one of my most favorite partners; even better than Justin Bieber! I'm gonna miss him! (Steve and Chelsie hug; audience gives them another standing ovation)
Kendall: Well, we have a little montage of your journey to the Semi-finals. Let's watch.

Steve's goodbye VT plays. We see him in the corner of the screen choke up as we see some of his highs and lows, improvements, and comebacks throughout the season. We also see the many antics he's pulled on the show and in training. Steve says this has been an eye-opening experience he will miss dearly.

Brittany: Steve, I am so sorry to make you take your final dance (music starts; Steve and Chelsie groove out on the floor). Please remember to tune in next Wednesday for the Finals!
Kendall: We will also have Judge Valerie back. Then, next Saturday is our two-hour long finale, where either Tom, Sandra, or Cher will take home the trophy. Make sure to watch! I'm Kendall Schmidt. 
Brittany: And I'm Brittany Brannon. Good night and thank you for watching!
