This week’s episode of Dancing with the Stars came amid the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting and the show opened by taking a few moments to acknowledge all those who were affected by the tragedy. Drew Scott, who is a Las Vegas local, opened the show with his routine which followed the night’s theme of “guilty pleasures.” Follow along for a recap of last night’s performances:
Drew Scott’s guilty pleasure was true crime reality shows so the two performed an Argentine Tango that Len Goodman called his best dance yet. The two received a 23/30. Alan Bersten and Vanessa Lachey tied with this duo and performed a jazz routine to show Lachey’s guilty pleasure of “girls’ night out.” Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy followed close behind by landing a 22/30 for their quickstep routine to Victoria’s guilty pleasure song “Tubthumping.”
Four dancers landed near the bottom of the pack with a score of 21/30. Derek Fisher’s guilty pleasure was The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air where he attempted to impersonate Will Smith with his cha cha routine that was underwhelming. Nikki Bella matched Fisher’s score as she performed a 50 Shades of Grey themed Viennese Waltz that felt a little awkward. Frankie Muniz performed a samba to ‘NSync with partner Witney Carson to encapsulate his guilty pleasure of boy bands which also landed them a 21/30. Similarly, Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd along with Terrell Owens and Cheryl Bruke finished with 21/30.
The worst of the night though was Sasha Pieterse and Gleb Savchenko who received a low of 19 for their jazz routine which the judges thought didn’t show off Pieterse’s dancing abilities well enough.
For last night’s frontrunners, Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold performed a superhero-themed routine and landed a high 25/30. Lindsey Stirling and partner Mark Ballas went for a pajama-themed jive that was coined the best dance of the season so far and landed the highest score yet of a 27/30.
