Dancing with the Stars “Season 24 Week 4” aka Most Memorable Year
This is the week of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars that tissues are needed. It’s when the celebs dance to a song fromÂ their Most Memorable Year. This theme usually produces some interesting stories. Honestly, I hate when people cry on reality shows but sometimes there is an exception. This is one of those exceptions.
Unfortunately, at the end of the show, another couple was eliminated. But first letâ€™s see how everyone did and how much they cried:
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3410
Most Memorable Year: 2012
Normaniâ€™s most memorable year is when she joined her group, Fifth Harmony. She started out singing and then the rest of the members of her group took overÂ for the rest of the song. This left Kordei with one purpose: to dance beautifully. SheÂ and Val clearly share a connection.
Normani has been great from the beginning but this routine gave her the opportunity to be more vulnerable. The girl travelsÂ all over the world and in each location sheÂ fits in rehearsal time. It’s an exhausting schedule yet she manages to get better every week. Thatâ€™s just nutty! It seems to work for her.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-7, Julianne-8, Bruno-9; Total: 32
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3409
Most Memorable Year: 2016
Nickâ€™s Most Memorable Year was the last year and how he finally found love on The Bachelor with Vanessa. (I mean the guy tried three times before that but I guess fourth time is the charm?) He looked very confident and really is getting better each week.
They even added a touch of The Bachelor and ended the dance with his fiancÃ©eâ€™ in his arms and kissing. I guess there was a malfunction with her dress? If he keeps this up he will continue to go upward. Hopefully William Shatner has given up his quest to get rid of Nick. (I donâ€™t get it either.)
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-7, Julianne-8, Bruno-7; Total: 30
Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3408
Most Memorable Year: 1996
Nancy and Artemâ€™s dance was one of the most graceful and heartbreaking Foxtrots I have ever seen. Nancy talked about having six miscarriages after her first child was born. Nancy felt she was a failure somehow. She had always wanted three kids and she never gave up untilÂ she got her wish. I think this is definitely her best dance. It had fluidity and strength to it.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-9, Julianne-8, Bruno-8; Total: 33
Mr. T and Kym Johnson
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3407
Most Memorable Year: 1995
Mr. T’s Most Memorable Year has to do with his cancer and how he felt God helped him survive it. The waltzÂ was lovely, but to me, on a dancing level, Kym was doing most of the work. Having said that,Â I felt Mr. Tâ€™s vulnerability and humble spirit was felt throughout the ballroom.
Score: Carrie Ann-7, Len-7, Julianne-7, Bruno-7; Total: 28
Heather Morris and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Alan Bersten)
Dance: Cha Cha
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3406
Most Memorable Year: 2015
Heatherâ€™s Most Memorable Year was when she got married. It was an uplifting dance which was perfect becauseÂ so many of the others had a touch of sadness. Maks is still recovering from surgery leaving Alan to partner up with herÂ again. I think their Cha Cha was an amazing and fun dance. MorrisÂ has improved even though she was already a dancer! I thought her scores should have been higher.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-9; Total: 35
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold
Dance: Viennese Waltz
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3404
Most Memorable Year: 2016
Davidâ€™s Most Memorable Year was 2016Â because that’s when he playedÂ his last professional baseball game. Not only did his team win the World Series for the first time in 108 years, he helped makeÂ that big win happen with a Game 7 home run. He and Lindsay performed a nice dance that was dedicated to his fellow Cubs and family. I saw some improvement. I think he rushed a little bit but itâ€™s something to work on.
Score: Carrie Ann-7, Len-8, Julianne-8, Bruno-8; Total: 31
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3408
Most Memorable Year: 2006
Rashad had a hard time with his dad growing up. Then as his life was about to give him the beginning of his dreams, his Dad had a stroke. He decided to be with his family and then everything changed for the better.
The dance told a story with a lot of emotion. At the end of the dance, Rashadâ€™s father was in the audience and he went and hugged him tightly and everyone cried! This is a real man! And the got the first 10s of the season. I donâ€™t know if the 10s should have happened but who am I to judge. (Ha, Ha)
Score: Carrie Ann- 10, Len-9, Julianne-10, Bruno-10; Total: 39
Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko
Dance: Cha Cha
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3405
Most Memorable Year: 1989
Erikaâ€™s most memorable is when she moved to New York and was first on her own. I didnâ€™t love this dance. But she is a performer and I think she could be so much better. She is fierce as Julianne said. Erika has to keep improving if she wants to stick around. Iâ€™m a little worried for her.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-7, Julianne-7, Bruno-8; Total: 30
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber
Dance: Viennese Waltz
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3412
Most Memorable Year: 2000
Simone was adopted so she choseÂ that year as her most memorable. She cried through the whole dance and after she hugged her parents. I agree with Len. It is her best dance so far. I admit it. I cried too. I also donâ€™t understand how she didnâ€™t get any 10s. It was seamless.
Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-9; Total: 36
Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3401
Most Memorable Year: 2016
In January of last year, Bonner had an accident that almost killed him. He was the number one bull rider in the country and fell and was trampled by the bull. For a guy that was paralyzed, Bonner has come a long way. He needs to keep working on his footwork but he was a lot better than last week. (FYI DWTS, we didnâ€™t need to see the staples in his neck in the video package.)
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Julianne-8, Bruno-8; Total: 32
Then first couple that was in jeopardy: Mr. T & Kym. The other couple that was in jeopardy: Erika & Gleb. The rest of the couples were safe.
Saying goodbye and leaving the dance floor: Mr. T & Kym Johnson. At least he went out on a high note. He is an inspiration and I think he was glad to be there.
Tom: â€œMore definitions later in the broadcast.â€
Tom: â€œYeah, you know once they get to know him, thatâ€™s when security kicks in.â€
Len: â€œNick now that Iâ€™ve seen you with your shirt off, we have so much in common.â€
Len: â€œAre you ready for me yet? You go on and on Tom!â€
Tom: â€œSquatty and Skippy are live on the Disney Channel.â€
Tom: â€œIt was a little bit of Yogi Berra and a little bit Curly Howard.â€
Tom: â€œAll hail muscle memory.â€
Next week the theme is Disney. Donâ€™t forget to vote! See you on Monday.
Dancing with the Stars Season 24 airs Monday nights at 8/7c on ABC.
