Dancing with the Stars: Disney Week Results


The circle of life continued on this week’s Dancing with the Stars as another couple was eliminated and the top eight were revealed. Before we get to the elimination, here is a quick recap of tonight’s performances and results.

Tonight Dancing with the Stars celebrates all things Disney with a week five Disney Night. The show with a spectacular group number to a mash-up of Disney classics, featuring all of the professional and celebrity dancers. Donny Osmond will be joining the judging panel as tonight’s guest judge, and we can’t wait to hear his take on the couples Disney theme dances. We find out early in the show that the results will be announced throughout the show

The first two couples to find out their fates are Drew Carey & Cheryl Burke and Charlie White & Sharna Burgess. Both couples are told their safe and will be advancing to next week.

Drew Carey & Cheryl Burke

Dance: Quickstep

Song: “You Ain’t Never Had a Friend Like Me” from Aladdin.

Score: 28/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 7

Len Goodman: 7

Donny Osmond: 7

Bruno Tonioli: 7

This week Drew and Cheryl seemed to take a step back, as Drew’s quickstep did not live up to it’s full potential. If Drew does not begin to improve, he could easily be the next celebrity sent home.

 

Charlie White & Sharna Burgess

Dance: Jazz

Song: “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins.

Score: 37/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 9

Len Goodman: 10

Donny Osmond: 9

Bruno Tonioli: 9

Charlie had the hardest performance of the night with a song that is extremely difficult. Sharna choreographed multiple exchanges of her umbrella and Charlie’s cane, and at one point in the dance Charlie dropped his cane. He recovered quickly, not missing a beat in the performance. While I understand the judges’ scores, I feel Len was the only judge to give Charlie and Sharna the score they deserved.

Time for more results. Standing on the stage awaiting their results are Nene Leakes and Tony Dovolani, Amy Purdy and Derek Hough, Cody Simpson and Witney Carson, and Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy. It is announced that both Amy and Derek and Danica & Val are safe. NeNe and Tony and Cody and Witney are not so lucky as it is revealed that they are both in jeopardy of being eliminated.
Danica McKellar & Valentine Chmerkovskiy

Dance: Quickstep

Song: “Be our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast.

Score: 39/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 10

Len Goodman: 9

Donny Osmond: 10

Bruno Tonioli: 10

Danica and Val’s quickstep was really well executed and their score reflected their routine. Danica and Val have been slowly climbing the leader-board and seem to be becoming a fan, and judge, favorite this season.

Amy Purdy & Derek Hough

Dance: Waltz

Song: “So this is Love” from Cinderella.

Score: 37/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 9

Len Goodman: 9

Donny Osmond: 10

Bruno Tonioli: 9

This week we saw a vulnerable side of Amy as she struggled with the basic techniques of the Waltz. However, when the couple hit the stage it was truly magical. It felt like I was watching a princess dance with her prince, and the dance was truly moving. Amy continues to defy the odds and put out moving and entertaining dances. My only complaint goes to the judges for not giving her more than one ten among the panel. Amy and Derek’s Waltz was truly magical.

 

Cody Simpson & Witney Carson

Dance: Samba

Song: “I Just Can’t Wait to be King,” from The Lion King.

Score: 34/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 9

Len Goodman: 8

Donny Osmond: 8

Bruno Tonioli: 9

Cody and Witney had a great song to go with their Samba, yet the dance seemed to lack technique. While Cody does seem to be improving, if he doesn’t step things up he could be leaving the show sooner rather than later.
NeNe Leakes & Tony Dovolani

Dance: Foxtrot

Song: “Cruella de Vil” from 101 Dalmatians.

Score: 36/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 9

Len Goodman: 9

Donny Osmond: 9

Bruno Tonioli: 9

After being paired with Derek in last week’s Switch Up, NeNe wanted Tony to incorporate some of Derek’s learning techniques into his teaching ways. The two danced a very fun and technical foxtrot and received their highest scores of the competition. However the pair was taken aback by the producers’ over dramatizing a disagreement the two had earlier in the week, and who can blame them ( the show is about chemistry and pairs that fight often get sent home).

 

James Maslow & Peta Murgatroyd

Dance: Contemporary

Song: “Let it Go” from Frozen.

Score: 40/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 10

Len Goodman: 10

Donny Osmond: 10

Bruno Tonioli: 10

James and Peta had the perfect song for their contemporary routine with “Let it Go” from Frozen. Their routine was the best of the night and they defiantly deserved their score of 40 out of 40 (the first perfect score of the season). I can only hope that the two continue to improve on keep their place at the top (or towards) the top of the leader-board.
Meryl Davis & Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Dance: Samba

Song: “I Wanna Be Like You” from The Jungle Book.

Score: 36/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 9

Len Goodman: 9

Donny Osmond: 9

Bruno Tonioli: 9

While Meryl and Maks still put on a solid routine this week, it wasn’t their best and looked average compared to their past routines. As one of the front-runners in the competition, Meryl and Maks have a lot of pressure on them and this week they didn’t deliver their best.
Candace Cameron Bure & Mark Ballas

Dance: Samba

Song: “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid.

Score: 35/40

Carrie Anne Inaba: 8

Len Goodman: 9

Donny Osmond: 9

Bruno Tonioli: 9

Candace and Mark had one of their best performances of the season this week and the audience in attendance really loved their dance. After a strong performance, Candace and Mark received their highest scores of the season, but their happiness was short lived as they were told that they were in jeopardy of being eliminated from the show. As a result of Candace and Mark being in jeopardy, we are informed that James and Peta and Meryl and Maks are safe.
Final Results Time: The first couple sent to safety is… NeNe and Tony! Leaving Candace and Mark and Cody and Witney facing elimination, remember that the two are not necessarily the bottom two. Time to reveal who is leaving the show tonight. The eliminated couple is…Cody and Witney. The couple is in complete shock, as is the ballroom, giving us the first shocking elimination of the series.

What did you think of tonight’s elimination? Are you sad to see Cody and Witney go? Hit the comments below and tell me what you thought of Disney week.
