Dancing with the Stars “Season 27 Week 5” aka Disney Night
Not only did we get the magic of Disney this week on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, but also the magic of the dance.
Plus, the Adult DWTS crew got a “little” help from the Dancing with the Stars: Juniors who were part of the troop.
Who went home? Letâ€™s take a look and see how everyone did:
Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten
Disney Movie: Pocahontas
Are Alexis and Alan having a real Disney Fairy Tale? The chemistry is palpable between them. And Alexis basically admitted she has some kind of feelings for Alan so we will have to see.
For the dancing: it was a proper Foxtrot. The dance was lovely. They worked well together and seemed to flow as one unit. I thought the 10s were a bit much but even if they donâ€™t win the Mirrorball Trophy they might win a love connection!
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Bruno-10 Total: 29
Juan Pablo Di Pace and Cheryl Burke
Dance: Viennese Waltz
Disney Movie: Beauty and the Beast
I couldnâ€™t stop smiling from ear to ear. This was perfection for Disney night. Everything was spot on: technique, musicality, the character, and I could go on. Len wanted some move in the middle so he gave them a 9. That was annoying but Len is going to be Len.
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Bruno-10 Total: 29
DeMarcus Ware and Lindsay Arnold
Disney Night: Hercules
What I liked about this dance is that it was fun and, like Len says, they attacked the dance. The lifts were the craziest I have ever seen on any season of this show. Lindsay did this windmill move that was scary but exhilarating.I felt that there was a lack of gracefulness and when he did the Charleston it was correct.
Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-8, Bruno-9 Total: 26
Evanna Lynch and Keo Motsepe
Disney Movie: Tangled
The song didnâ€™t work for me. I think that it slightly affected their timing because sometimes she was slightly behind the beat and then sometimes slightly ahead of it. I thought that they did a nice job. The story was there, but it wasnâ€™t my favorite.
Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Bruno-8 Total: 24
Joe Amabile and Jenna Johnson
Disney Movie: Wreck It Ralph: Ralph Breaks the Internet
Iâ€™m sorry but this dance was difficult to watch. There wasnâ€™t enough content and a lot of the time he seemed to just be dancing with Jenna and the troop ladies going around him. The guy tries but at the same time itâ€™s time for him to go
Carrie Ann-6, Len-5, Bruno-6 Total: 17
Mary Lou Retton and Sasha Farber
Disney Movie: Mulan
She is a fierce little powerhouse. In gymnastics, you canâ€™t show vulnerability and she has worked hard to show that side of her. This is what she has done in this performance.
Sasha showed some of his gymnastic skills, which Len thought was weird, but I thought was unexpected when he is working with one of the best American gymnasts that ever lived.
Carrie Ann-9, Len-8, Bruno-8 Total: 25
John Schneider and Emma Slater
Disney Movie: The Jungle Book
John was dreading the Quickstep but did an excellent job. He was elegant, confident and was perfectly in sync with Emma. Even though the judges said there were some small little issues I didnâ€™t see it.
Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Bruno- 8 Total: 24
Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess
Disney Movie: The Little Mermaid
The lines were nice. He definitely took it seriously. You can see that he works hard. One of the criticisms he got was that he giggles too much because he is so happy to be there and Bobby loved it!
Carrie Ann-7, Len-7, Bruno-7 Total: 21
Milo Manheim and Witney Carson
Disney Movie: The Incredibles 2
You have to give the kid credit for just dancing in a onesie! He was full of fire and power. The body contact was a little separate. I also thought that Milo is bending over too much instead of embracing his height. The kid is a great dancer and with these minor tweaks he can for sure be a finalist.
Carrie Ann-9, Len-8, Bruno-10 Total: 27
Then it came to elimination time. The first couple in jeopardy was DeMarcus & Lindsay and joining them in jeopardy were Alexis & Alan. These couples should definitely not be the two couples in danger of going home.
But then Tom was about to announce who was going home when he announced that no one was going home because itâ€™s Disney night! That was a little on the mean side but I guess it keeps everyone on their toes!
Juan Pablo- â€œGaston needs 5 more minutes!â€
Juan Pablo- â€œIâ€™m living my best mullet.â€
Erin: â€œThereâ€™s no shame in a clip on.â€
Jason: â€œLen, did you drink your prune juice today?
Tom: â€œThat was best Disney boo we have had all night.â€
Tom: â€œ90 years? Youâ€™re clearly moisturizing.â€
Bobby: â€œThe best critique I can get is that I giggle too much.â€
So no one goes home but who should go next? Find out on next week’s Dancing with the Stars, Monday night on ABC at 8/7c.
