The night sees the remaining celebrity contestants and their pro-dancer partners honoring Queen as they take to the ballroom to dance to the band’s songs.
AceShowbiz -“Dancing with the Stars” returned with a new episode on Monday, November 1. The night saw the remaining celebrity contestants and their pro-dancer partners honoring Queen as they took to the ballroom to dance to the band’s songs.
Performing first was Amanda Kloots, who danced the Jive to “Don’t Stop Me Now” alongside Alan Bersten. “The opening was so beautiful and elegant, I slightly agree with [Len Goodman]. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t your best,” Derek Hough commented. Bruno Tonioli, meanwhile, said, “I have no idea what they are saying, I thought it was so good, there was just a slight mistake and it was absolutely brilliant.” Amanda got 33/44.
Olivia Jade and pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy followed it up with the Quickstep to “Fat Bottomed Girls”. Of the routine, Carrie Ann Inaba said, “You are so light on your feet but you use the floor. You have an incredible way of putting grace in a rock routine.” Len added, “It went straight into the dance, speed and control. I would have liked more body contact, overall you are always a joy to watch.” The judges gave her 38/40.
Iman Shumpert and pro Daniella Karagach, meanwhile, danced the Paso Doble to “Another One Bites the Dust”. Bruno commented, “This basketball legend is now an accomplished dancer. This was a tricky dance, you put your own style without going to far. You have to extend your chest and lean back from your hips. The frame was there but you need the eagle.” Derek, however, said that “it lacked the power and posture of a paso.” Iman got 32/40.
As for Jimmie Allen and Emma Slater, they opted to dance the Viennese Waltz to “Somebody to Love”. “Now you really have become a true leading man. You were leading this dance, you were so on it, brilliant,” Bruno praised the country singer. Len agreed, saying, “It is not how you start, it is how you finish and you are finishing strong.” The judges gave him 38/40.
Later, The Miz and Witney Carson hit the ballroom to dance the Foxtrot to “Radio Ga Ga”. “Your frame was good, I liked your hold you had there. Your head became too fixed, it was scary. You have to make it more natural,” Len commented. Also noting about his flexibility, Bruno said, “I blame the muscles, you were a bit tight in the beginning. You relaxed in the second half. It has to be a little more fluid.” The Miz received 32/40.
JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson were up next, dancing the Tango to “Body Language”. “That was like watching super models, slinky, sexy, cool, excellent,” Bruno raved. Len added, “You showed lovely fast aggressive movements. But I didn’t see some slow deliberate walks across the floor. But as always, you dance beautifully.” JoJo earned 39/40 for the routine.
Suni Lee and Sasha Farber followed it up with the Paso Doble to “We Will Rock You”. It wasn’t her best performance as Carrie Ann advised her, “You are already a champion you don’t know how many people you inspire. Do not be not confident. You had a little slip, but I am proud of you getting out there an dancing tonight.” Derek added, “Super proud of you, you are a champion, tonight wasn’t the best night, but we love you.” Suni got 33/40.
As for Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke, the pair danced the Foxtrot to “You’re My Best Friend”. Carrie Ann was satisfied with the number as she said, “Tonight I saw true joy in your dancing. You were open, free and relaxed. It was so, it made me happy, well done.” Bruno added, “It was a fox trot glowing with affection. I actually saw your true self tonight, you were honest, spontaneous and you moved very well. Well done.” They got 34/40.
Rounding out the night was Melora Hardin who danced the Foxtrot to “Killer Queen” alongside pro partner Artem Chigvintsev. “It was smooth, the costume, the concept, it was all there. You were just radiant tonight, regal, stunning, fantastic. All hail queen Melora tonight,” Derek gushed. Len also said that the number “had sophistication, elegance and style.” Melora got 36/40.
Later, The Miz & Witney, Iman & Daniella, and Cody & Cheryl did the Dance Relay dancing the Jive to “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”. Carrie Ann and Derek voted for Iman, while Bruno and Len voted for Cody.
Later, JoJo & Jenna, Olivia & Val, and Jimmie & Emma Slater danced the Foxtrot to “Under Pressure” by Queen & David Bowie for the Dance Relay. All judges picked Olivia.
