Welcome to the “Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars” semi-finals, ballroom fans! This was the last chance for stars and their pros to dance to the finals before the double elimination on Tuesday night, so we got outlandish costumes.

The first was a combination of a new dance and off-beat theme that seemed like it was taken straight out of an acid trip, but turned out to be a refreshing and fun way to show off how creative these pros can be with challenging choreography.

If the video inspires the entire Packer Nation to vote his way, Driver could win pretty handily, because the winner is based on a combination of judges' scores and fan votes.
