Dancing with the Stars Recap: Who Survived Disney Week?

By Maximum PC 0

Dancing With the Stars’ spring 2017 season is in full bloom and the contenders are starting to set themselves apart from the pretenders.

While the likes of Heather Morris, Simone Biles and Rashad Jennings continue to set the bar high, others are battling just to survive.

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater

Their fates are continuously in the hands of judges and fans, the remaining celebrities are fighting like hell to remain in the competition.

Whose luck ran out on Monday night – which just happened to Disney Week, a feast for the senses (and obvious corporate synergy)?

Let’s break down the routines and scores briefly …

Rashad Jennings with Emma Slater – Foxtrot – “Evermore” by Josh Groban from Beauty and the Beast

The NFL running back showed some real versatility with this routine, despite some footwork issues and a slight dropoff from last week.

Score: 32/40

Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd

Nick Viall with Peta Murgatroyd – Jazz – “I’ve Got No Strings” as sung by Dickie Jones from Pinocchio

We’re not sure if the irony of the song choice was lost on Nick or whether he played into it the whole way, but man was it fun.

The choreography and The Bachelor star breaking out of his Ken Doll shell a bit made this his best effort of the season by far.

Score: 34/40

Erika Jayne with Gleb Savchenko – Viennese Waltz – “Unforgettable” by Sia from Finding Dory

Whatever you think of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, she attacked this one with gusto and we loved every second.

Score: 32/40

Heather Morris and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Heather Morris with Maksim Chmerkovskiy (injured) – Jazz – “For the First Time in Forever” by Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, from Frozen

For a Heather Morris dance, this one was surprisingly average, as it didn’t bring out the best of her abilities … by her standards, of course.

Score: 34/40.

Bonner Bolton with Sharna Burgess – Tango – “When Can I See You Again?” by Owl City from Wreck-It Ralph

Yes, a dance from Wreck-It Ralph … and Bonner and Sharna pulled off a nice dance to boot, one of their best even.

Considering his injury history, he’s not even able to go as big as he’d probably like, making it even more impressive.

Score: 30/40

Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy

Normani Kordei with Valentin Chmerkovskiy – Paso Doblé – “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” by Donny Osmond from Mulan

This was the one. Normani TOOK IT to Val with some quality fight choreography as well as some jaw-dropping moves.

Lest we forget, the Paso Doblé is perhaps the hardest dance to do, making her mastery of this one almost perfect.

Score: 39/40

David Ross with Lindsay Arnold – Jive – “Ride” by ZZ Ward from Cars 3

Ross’ strength is his ability to surprise when you don’t think he can pull off something like this, and it worked to his advantage.

Unfortunately, it was still a little bit flat-footed and he may not have too many more weeks left against must stiffer competition.

Score: 29/40

Dancing with the Stars: 9 Raciest Moments in Show History

Nancy Kerrigan with Artem Chigvintsev – Jazz – “That’s How You Know” by Amy Adams from Enchanted

The former figure skating great is so artistic and princess-like that you almost forget she’s in a competition.

Score: 36/40

Simone Biles with Sasha Farber – Contemporary – “How Far I’ll Go” performed by Auli’i Cravalho, from Moana

Sasha loves to push limits and Simone can keep up, so this became half gymnastics meet and half modern dance in a sense.

Artistic as well as athletic, she showed why she’s probably the one to beat – although Normani will have a lot to say about that.

Score: 38/40

As for the Dancing With the Stars results, Erika and Gleb and Nick and Peta ended up in jeopardy, with Erika saying goodbye.

Due to the weird way this is scored, it happens after her best dance no less. Should we go back to a Tuesday results show?
