Week 2 of the athletes edition of Dancing with the Stars is over, and it’s time to look at which couples dazzled the judges and which ones did not. Last week, this season’s figure-skating competitors stole the show, and last night Adam Rippon and Jenna again brought the wow-factor to the stage. Let’s look at last night’s performances to see how everyone did.

And the eliminated couples were…

With a score of 26 out of a possible 40 points, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabar and his partner Lindsay Arnold were sent home after the viewers’ votes didn’t quite match up with the judges’ scores despite an enthusiastic response from the live audience. Also going home with a score of 33 out of a possible 40 was Notre Dame basketball player Arike Ogunbowale and her partner Gleb Savchenko. Despite a gorgeously choreographed performance to Pink’s “What About Us?,” Arike couldn’t match her partner’s grace on stage.
