'Dancing with the Stars' semi-final results: Maria Menounos cut, William Levy dances on
"I learned how strong I was," said Menounos as she made her graceful exit from the competition. "I learned to perservere."
"I loved dancing with this woman," said partner Derek Hough. "She's not just a champion at dancing, but a champion at life."
Despite a Monday (May 14) back injury, Jenkins and partner Mark Ballas made it to the next level, along with telenovela star Levy -- partnered with Cheryl Burke -- and wide receiver Driver and his partner, Peta Murgatroyd.
The evening also featured a performance by Mary J. Blige, who sang Journey's "Any Way You Want It" while "Rock of Ages" co-star (and former "DWTS" alum) Julianne Hough danced around decked out in full '80s regalia.
