Movie night definitely brought the drama! At this point in the competition, it’s hard to see one couple go home, let alone two. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s ‘Dancing with the Stars.’
It’s getting down to the wire on Dancing with the Stars, so who ever got the highest score on this week’s “A Night at the Movies” earned immunity — and the rest had to do a “Dance-Off.” Here’s the breakdown of all the dances, in order of best to worst scores. Tonight’s guest judge was La La Land choreographer, Mandy Moore.
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy danced a Foreign-themed Argentine Tango to “Quizàs, Quizàs, Quizàs,” and the Fifth Harmony singer was forced to dance through a serious back injury. But we wouldn’t have known; she absolutely killed it and the judges agreed — they got the only perfect score of the night! So, they won immunity and three extra points from the judges.
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber danced a Silent Films-themed Charleston to “Charleston.” The dance was super fast and old-school charming, perfect for the pair. The judges loved it, and guest judge Mandy’s only critique was to stay out of her head! While Carrie-Ann gave the pair a 10, the rest gave 9s — they scored a 37!
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater danced a Horror-themed Paso Doblé to “O Fortuna.” However, their dance was anything but scary! The duo killed it and received 37.
Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev danced a Romance-themed Tango to “Oh, Pretty Woman.” They went really into the theme, with Nancy even wearing a stunning red dress like Julia Roberts! It was definitely her best dance, and they scored a 36!
After the Disney takeover, Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd were next with an action-themed Argentine Tango to “Dangerous.” They really brought the sexy for the dance, but Carrie said there were a lot of missteps (I didn’t see them!); it was still Nick’s favorite dance. At the end, he did admit he cramped up and got dehydrated afterward. Regardless, they scored a 34.
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold danced a Sci Fi Salsa to “Universal Mind Control”and they really got into character. They scored a 32.
Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess danced a Western-themed Paso Doblé to “Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes.” Mandy absolutely loved his dance, most thought there wasn’t enough dancing — and they scored a 29.
For the dance-off, the top scoring couple (after Normani and Val, who were safe) had to choose who they’d go up against. America could actually vote live during the dance-off, and the winning pair earned two extra points.
Simone and Sasha danced the Cha Cha against Nancy and Artem — Sasha and Simone won; Rashad and Emma danced the Jive against David and Lindsay — Rashad and Emma won; and Bonner and Sharna danced the Rumba against Nick and Peta — Sharna and Bonner won.
So, who went home? Unfortunately, David/Lindsay, Artem/Nancy and Nick/Peta were all in the bottom three — and David and Lindsay were the only pair safe.
HollywoodLifers, were you bummed by the elimination?
