LOS ANGELES — It’s the week “Dancing with the Stars” fans dread the most: double elimination!
The seven remaining couples really had to work for it this week. Their individual routines were set to specific genres as they celebrated “a night at the movies.” The team with the highest score was granted immunity and was safe to dance another week; that left the other teams to face each other in a dance off!
Here’s a rundown of the night’s scores, from highest to lowest:
Normani Kordei: 40 out of 40
Normani’s hope of perfection seemed a little out of reach at first because she’s dealing with a back injury. It’s hard to do an Argentine tango when it hurts to kick and dip and stretch. Val promises to choreograph a dance with plenty of content so he can please head Judge Len Goodman. Even a back strain can’t keep this girl down! Len smiled that this was the best dance of the night; Bruno Tonioli awarded the couple the Oscar for best moves; Carrie Ann Inaba said it was an honor to watch Normani perform.
Simone Biles: 37 out of 40
Simone and Sasha head back to the silent-movie era and are assigned the Charleston.
