SAN DIEGO, Calif., October 22, 2017 – The first perfect score came out to play last week for Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold on “Dancing With The Stars” for a beautiful Foxtrot routine. Can any of the other eight couples catch them and compete for the Season 25 Mirror Ball Trophy?
They’ll move closer to the finals depicting Hollywood film genres celebrating “A Night at the Movies.” Each couple will attempt to capture the spirit of a specific movie genre: action, foreign, spy, musical, sci-fi, drama, sports or
animation. The assigned dance styles this week are paso doblé, jazz, rumba, Argentine tango, samba, jive or quickstep.
We expect great things from all of the DWTS production support professionals, who have been turning it superb work this season on costumes, lighting, and staging.
At the end of the night, based on scores and votes from last Monday, one couple will be eliminated.
See our Photo Gallery from “Disney Week” below.
Award-winning country singer Shania Twain joins Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba as a guest judge and will also perform her new song, “Soldier,” from her latest album, “Now.” We aren’t sure what makes her any more qualified than say, Kermit the Frog – but his scores didn’t count last week.
Nick Lachey has been lingering at the bottom of the leaderboard, but his boy band fans may be voting to keep him safe. Football fans will need to support Terrell Owens and WWE fans need to support Nikki Bella, although she had her best week ever dancing to a song from the new Disney film “Coco.”
