On the Monday, October 23 episode, the celebrities were tasked with performing routines that captured the spirit of various movie genres. Adding to the fun, Shania Twain joined as a guest judge – and yes, she was just as bubbly and nice as you expected.
Top prize wemt Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas, whose sci-fi Argentine tango was literally perfection. Mark played a mad scientist and Lindsey was his cyborg female creation. Len thought the choreography was “phenomenal” and the dancing was “brilliant.” Bruno then declared it the best dance of the season.
It was Disney Night on Monday, October 16, Dancing With the Stars and Jordan Fisher brought some real Disney magic to the dance floor, earning the first perfect score of the season!
Fisher – a former Disney Channel star himself – couldn’t have been more excited to hit the stage with his pro partner, Lindsay Arnold, for an foxtrot set to Fisher’s own version of the song “You’re Welcome,” from the Moana soundtrack.
The Polynesian-themed dance, complete with palm trees surrounding the stage, was a perfect showcase for Fisher’s talent and Arnold’s stunning choreography.
One of the most impressive aspects of the song came during Lin-Manuel Miranda’s verse, during which Jordan and Arnold added modern dance elements to what had been a largely traditional foxtrot, giving it a unique twist.
On Dancing with the Stars, Cheryl Burke, the Mirror Ball Trophy-winning professional dancer returns to the show during the ninth week of performances. Cheryl will give an emotional sneak peek at her own live stage show, “Love on the Floor.” She brought the show to Japan first, in 2016, with Olympic gold medalist figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi who won Season 6 (2008) with Mark Ballas.
Cheryl says “Love on the Floor” is all “the relationships we go through – the romance, the passion, the hurt.” That said, she reassures fans that there is a happy ending in “Love on the Floor.”
Fans of Disney’s Descendants have been patiently awaiting the sequel (Descendants 2) since the first film’s release in 2015.
The film is due for release on 21 July 2017 on 5 different networks, and fans of the series cannot wait.
To further promote the film, the cast performed a medley of ‘Ways To Be Wicked’ and, hit song from the first film ‘Rotten To The Core’, on this week’s Dancing With The Stars. Dove Cameron who plays Mal, Sofia Carson who plays Evie, Cameron Boyce who plays Carlos, and Booboo Stewart who plays Jay, all took part in the performance.
The performance recreates moments from the official music video and is full of energy from start to finish. It also has a fantastic dance break half way through and the judges even get up and have a dance.
The final couple to dance in the first round is Heather Morris and Maks Chmerkovskiy (back from his calf injury), dancing a rumba to “Waterfalls” by TLC.
Nick Carter calls Heather “beautiful and elegant” and praises the storyline. He adds that it was his favorite dance of the night. Len Goodman says he loved it as well, calling it “a knockout dance.” Bruno Tonioli calls her stunning, adding that she “danced like a champion.” Carrie Ann Inaba says it was her best dance so far, calling Heather grounded and stunning.
They score a 40, the first perfect score of the season.
