Of course, after the scary incident last week, the dancing show wasn’t going to take any risks as they beefed up security by adding six guards and changing some protocols. Not only that, but Ryan also got some special support this week from the DWTS pros who came out wearing “Lochte” T-shirts with a heart around his name. Awwww!
Once the show got started though, things ran smoothly as all the celebs and their professional dance partners had a BLAST in routines inspired by TV shows!
Of course there were TONS of AH-Mazing performances from Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy SLAYING it with their jive, to Babyface and Allison Holker‘s X-Files tango — but Amber Rose as Daenerys Targaryen took the cake, even if the score didn’t reflect it!
A VERY close second for incredible moment of the night went to The Brady Brunch’s Maureen McCormick and her partner Artem Chigvintsev as they performed a waltz to the theme song of the actress’ old show — and she got her TV mom Florence Henderson to make a cameo!
