'Dancing With the Stars' recap: On trio night, Jordan Fisher gets 2 perfect scores, Terrell Owens goes home

Terrell Owens was the latest contestant to be sent home.

"I think Terrell is just a hard worker. This is why I love working with athletes, because they don't take anything I say too personal, and I'm pretty tough ... but that's because I see potential in Terrell," his partner, Cheryl Burke, said today on "Good Morning America."

"I knew that he had it in him, and so I just kept fighting until I got it, and I had no idea we were going to make it all the way to week 8, so I'm super proud of him," she said.

Owens said his emotional side shined through more in the ballroom, as opposed to on the football field, where, he said, "I showed it when I was in between the lines."

Later, Fisher and Arnold were partnered with "High School Musical" star Bleu and turned in a sensational performance with a salsa to "Que Viva la Vida" by Wisin. Interestingly, both Fisher and Bleu have performed on Broadway in musicals by Lin-Manuel Miranda: Fisher in "Hamilton" and Bleu in "In the Heights."

Here are the combined scores for the night:

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold, 60

Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas, 54

Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson, 53

Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke, 51

Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy, 48

Drew Scott and Emma Slater, 47

"Dancing With the Stars" returns next Monday night at 8 p.m. on ABC.
