Monday night, Dancing with the Stars became the Happiest Ballroom on Earth as the contestants suited up for the always-anticipated Disney night — and to keep everyone happy, nobody went home at the end of the evening.
While Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten and DeMarcus Ware and Lindsey Arnold were both in jeopardy, host Tom Bergeron announced, “The couple leaving us right now is….neither of you! It’s Disney Night! You’re all safe!”
There was a tie for first place: Juan Pablo Di Pace and Cheryl Burke and Alexis and Alan each scored a 29/30. Juan Pablo and Cheryl did a Viennese waltz to “Gaston” from Beauty & the Beast, which fulfilled a childhood fantasy for the Fuller House actor.
Alexis and Alan did a foxtrot to “Just Around the Riverbend” from Pocahontas, and there was a lot of insinuation that the two have become romantically involved. At one point, a producer asked Alexis, “Have any feelings developed for Alan?” to which she laughed and said, “No comment.”
The most emotional moment of the night came after Mary Lou Retton and her partner Sasha Farber did a contemporary dance to “Reflection” from Mulan. Mary Lou ended the dance in tears, talking about how she’s become so much more vulnerable as a result of the competition.
Once again, the lowest score of the night went to “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile and his partner Jenna Johnson. Though the judges insisted they saw some improvement, his jive to the Imagine Dragons song “Zero,” from the upcoming animated sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet, only earned an abysmal 17/30.
Here’s a look at the scores, along with which Disney song each couple danced to:
“Gaston” from Beauty & the Beast: Juan Pablo Di Pace, Fuller House actor, with Cheryl Burke, 29/30
“Just Around the Riverbend” from Pocahontas: Alexis Ren, Sports Illustrated model, with Alan Bersten, 29/30
