If you like dancing and you like Disney then we have a VERY special surprise for you as DWTS contestants did routines entirely inspired by some of our favorite animated classics!!
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd were definitely the talk of the night, and for once it had NOTHING to do with the sexual tension between them (although it was definitely still there)! The Big Time Rush star opened up his package by talking about a special young girl named Hannah, who asked him to be her prom date in a YouTube video that went viral!
Unfortunately, he wasn't able to make it due to his hectic schedule, so he invited Hannah and her family to come watch him compete this week! He certainly didn't disappoint either, as he and Peta pulled off contemporary dance to the Oscar winning hit from Frozen, Let It Go, which earned them the FIRST perfect score of the season!
NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani were reunited after last week's partner swap, but the switch up definitely seemed to take it's toll on the couple as there was some serious bickering during their rehearsals! However, all of the arguing just seemed to help the Real Housewife get into the Cruella de Vil mindset as she earned a 36 for her villainous foxtrot!
Amy Purdy truly embodies the Cinderella story, so picking her Disney princess wasn't too difficult! However, her prosthetic legs were a major issue during rehearsals as she was NOT allowed to lean (literally) on her partner Derek Hough during their waltz. As usual, Amy overcame her obstacle and once again wowed the crowd by earning a 37 for the night!
Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy also made a fitting pick by dancing to Beauty And The Beast's Be Our Guest! The duo ended up walking away with the second highest score of the night and were one measly point away from perfection as they earned a 39!
Candace Cameron Bure gave us a little scare yesterday when she posted a picture of her injured, what do you call them? Oh, feet! But her busted flipper turned out to be just fine as she came out of her conservative shell a bit as she and Mark Ballas did a rumba to Under The Sea and notched a 35 for the evening!
Meryl Davis has come this close to perfection two weeks and a row now, and she definitely had her eye on the prize as she was reunited with Maks Chmerkovskiy for an amazing samba! Unfortunately, perfection will have to wait at least another week as they didn't see any 10s, but they DID have one of the highest scores of the evening with a 36!
Her Olympic partner Charlie White, on the other hand, had a VERY close brush with perfection as he and Sharna Burgess pulled off a jazz routine to Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious that had 40 written all over it! Sadly, the gold-medal winning skater accidentally dropped his cane at one point which definitely ended up costing him, but he still worked his way back up the leader board with a 37!
Overall, Disney night was easily one of the highest scoring nights we've seen so far, and it's getting harder and harder to predict who will be going home each week as the competition is DEFINITELY heating up!
Ch-ch-check out all of the performances (below)!
