The intense routine elicited some of the most enthusiastic responses from the judges all season. Carrie Ann Inaba gave Morris a hug, while famously stoic Len Goodman actually rose from his seat to give the singer a standing ovation. Bruno Tonioli called the dance, which earned Morris a perfect 30 out of 30, "the comeback we've all been waiting for."

For their second dance of the night, Morris and Arnold delivered a fast-paced Charleston to Avicii's "Shame On Me" and the invigorating performance had everyone in the audience cheering throughout the number.

The judges continued to ride the praise train during their feedback for the singer's second dance, with Inaba telling Morris that he was "her hero tonight," and Goodman gushing, "If natural dance talent was in the dictionary, there would be a photograph of you."

Again, the judges awarded them another round of 10s for a perfect 30, bringing their evening's scores up to a flawless 60 -- the highest combined score of the semi-finals.

However, as we learned last week when Jodie Sweetin was eliminated after getting her first perfect score of the season, the judges' love isn't always enough to keep you around.

After all was said and done, two stars had to be sent packing for the semi-finals' double elimination and Morris -- along with NFL star Antonio Brown -- were given their walking papers.

While deaf model Nyle DiMarco, UFC fighter Paige VanZant and GMA weather anchor Ginger Zee are moving on to the finals, it's definitely going to be hard for some fans to see the Boyz II Men singer go home.

In honor of his spectacular time on the show, check out the video below to see Morris' epic DWTS tribute to NYSNC's famous live performance of "Bye Bye Bye" at 2000 MTV VMAs.
