“Dancing With the Stars” is coming to a close, as two pairs were kicked off on Monday night. For ’90s night, all of the duos danced to hit songs from that decade, and Wayne Brady, Charli D’Amelio, and Gabby Windy all got perfect scores.
Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart’s jazz performance to Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” was one of the most powerful dances of the night. Everyone was moved, and Derek Hough choked back tears as he told the pair, “That was so insanely powerful.
It showed me just how much I need music. So being able to talk about it made a difference.” After the dance, Stewart said that dancing with Durant was a “profound moment” for her and that dancing without music helped them connect even more.
The routine got them their first 10s, and they got 39 out of a possible 40 points. In the second half of the night, the relay dances came back.
In each round, one judge was in charge of giving five points to the couple they thought was the best. Shangela and Durant danced the cha-cha to “Ice Ice Baby,” and Len Goodman chose Shangela as the winner.
Next, Carrie Ann Inaba watched Vinny Guadagnino and Trevor Donovan dance the samba. Donovan got the five points from her. Heidi D’Amelio and Brady both did the samba for Bruno Tonioli, but Brady was the one he chose.
Lastly, Hough watched Charli D’Amelio and Windey dance a salsa. In the end, D’Amelio got the extra points. Heidi D’Amelio and Artem Chigvintsev got the lowest score from both the judges and the viewers, so they were sent home immediately.
Donovan and his partner, Emma Slater, joined Guadagnino and his partner, Koko Iwasaki, in the bottom two. Donovan was saved by the judges, while Guadagnino was sent home.
