The semi finals of Dancing With the Stars brought two new challenges for the five remaining couples. In round one, the professional dancer selected a song that they felt represented their celebrity best. Mark Ballas selected the song "Head High" by Alexander Jean (otherwise known as Mark Ballas and his wife BC Jean). The contemporary dance represented Lindsey's journey to be herself and to succeed in her own way, despite being told no multiple times. The emotional dance pleased the judges, who gave them a score of 29.
The second round found each couple assigned an iconic dance from previous season to reimagine. Mark and Lindsey were assigned Maks and Meryl's tango to Feel So Close by Calvin Harris. This dance also received praise from the judges and a score of 27.
The end of the night found Lindsey and Mark in second place behind Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold. The announcement of the four couples moving on to the final was made, with Lindsey and Mark being named first. Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy were eliminated just short of the finals.
Next week the winners of season 25 will be announced after two nights of competition.
