'Dancing with the Stars' has found their three finalists.
Last night's semi-final of 'Dancing with the Stars' saw two favourites facing the dance-off.
Safe from last night's dance-off, and straight through to the final show, were Mairead Ronan and her dancing partner John Nolan; and Cliona Hagan with Robert Rowiński, who managed to avoid tripping over her pesky scarf.

Which meant that facing the dreaded dance-off were comedian Fred Cooke and Giulia Dotta, against actor Johnny Ward and his professional dancing partner Emily Barker. Unfortunately, it was time for Fred to foxtrot out of the competition.

Viewers took to Twitter to voice how much they'll miss Fred from the final.
Fairwell to Fred. I loved watching him every week, such an entertainer! #DWTSIrl

❤️ Fred Cooke, definitely the most improved dancer over the three series of #DWTSIrl

Some were outraged that Johnny had made it into the dance-off in the first place.
This show is a total fix. How can Johnny be in the dance of. #DWTSIrl

@JohnnyWard7 in the dance off was simply ridiculous, he is different gravy on the dancefloor to the others.. clearly someone is being "minded" all the way to the final.. wonder who that might be! #DWTSIrl

I can’t be the only one who shouted several expletives at the TV when Johnny only got 9’s off Brian and Loraine after that dance. Bloody hell. Fixed or what? #DWTSIRL

#DWTSIrl @DWTSIRL first time I've ever voted for 🇨🇮 Dancing with the Stars, but @JohnnyWard7 deserves it! He's showing enormous heart, courage and commitment to do what he's doing. AND the boy can dance!!! Bravo 👏☘💚

I see we have stopped all pretence now #DWTSIrl - @JohnnyWard7 should have won the thing already. Dancing alongside 2 pros and nailing it!! None of the other contestants could have pulled that off - yet he is consistently under scored wk after wk! I call bullshit.
