Welcome to week 3 of Dancing With the Stars! It really is film evening in the ballroom, so we’ve hit peak cheese levels, and I Really like IT! But prior to we get to the most current elimination, let’s dive into this DWTS Films production (rated G for Glitter).

Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko
Fairly Lady, “Oh, Fairly Lady”

There is practically nothing fairly like opening film evening with a tribute to your favored film prostitute! (Just kidding! Let’s all pause the dancing to rewatch the 1990 classic promptly.) Len was super impressed with Lauren’s “attack” and “objective.” But Bruno named out her transitions and Carrie Ann desires her to perform on her musicality. It was a strong efficiency, but I wonder if it will be memorable adequate for voters.

Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten
Bridesmaids, “Hold On”

How kismet! Bachelorette Hannah is preparing a bachelorette celebration for her BFF, so it only tends to make sense she’d spend tribute to Bridesmaids. And yes, the “celebration” featured Alan as a “stripper.” What a weird globe. Hannah’s dance was truly gorgeous, but she lacked the hip action the rumba demands. But if she continues this trajectory, Hannah will grow to be a actual contender for the Mirrorball Trophy.

Karamo Brown and Jenna Johnson
Rocketman, “I am Nonetheless Standing”

Taron Egerton, who played Elton John in the current biopic, sent a video message of assistance to Karamo and Jenna. Sadly, it did not assist the pair. Karamo is not the most effective dancer, and it really is a small painful to watch. But the power he brings to his routines is contagious. Honestly, that is half the battle on DWTS. And at any price, they deserve a 10 for the piano-themed costumes, full with him playing Jenna’s sleeve.

Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber
Selena, “Dreaming of You”


Selena is Ally’s favored artist of all time, so this dance was a match produced in heaven. And it translated. This is 1 of the improved rumbas I’ve noticed this early in the competitors. Sasha packed a tone of strategy into this routine, and Ally truly impressed the judges as well. They tied for the highest score of the evening!

Ray Lewis and Cheryl Burke
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, “Twist and Shout”

Cha Cha

Ray escaped elimination final week only to be sidelined by a tendon injury. Heeding his doctor’s orders, the NFL superstar had to withdraw from the competitors. But lest we be deprived of a Ferris Bueller tribute, former Mirrorball champion Rashad Jennings returned to the ballroom to carry out in Ray’s spot with Cheryl. Thinking about the judges saved him more than Mary final week, it really is a actual disappointment to see Ray exit the competitors so early.
No Score

James Van Der Beek and Emma Slater
A Star Is Born, “Shallow”

James committed this dance to his wife, so cue these DWTS-induced tears. James appears like a genuinely very good individual, so it really is pretty much annoying how very good he is! Is there something he cannot do? It wasn’t as smooth as Ally’s rumba, but it was a pretty strong week-3 routine. Watch out, fellow dancers!

Kate Flannery and Pasha Pashkov
9 to five, “9 to five”

What a way to make a livin’ and higher dance scores! The quickstep is normally the kiss of death, but Kate is killing this competitors so far. And this routine was no various. Shoutout to Kate’s companion, Pasha, who’s a very first-time pro this season. I know this was James’ film, but A Star Is Born, certainly.

Lamar Odom and Peta Murgatroyd, <em>Dancing with the Stars</em>Lamar Odom and Peta Murgatroyd, Dancing with the Stars

Lamar Odom and Peta Murgatroyd
Risky Organization, “Old Time Rock & Roll”

Cha Cha

Lamar named Peta the Kobe Bryant of ballroom dancing, and that is a major compliment. Sadly, Lamar Odom is the Lamar Odom of ballroom dancing. He hasn’t enhanced substantially from week 1. But I cannot assist but root for this pair. What Lamar lacks in dancing expertise, he tends to make up for with entertainment worth. His fans have kept him in the competitors up to this point, and they will have to stick with him if he expects to win a Mirrorball Trophy.

Sailor Brinkley-Cookand Val Chmerkovskiy
Mamma Mia!, “Mamma Mia”


Right here we go once again! Sailor took the constructive criticism from the very first two weeks to show off her most effective dance but. Len named it a “wonderful routine” which is extremely higher praise for week 3. And, of course, mom Christie was super proud. (And so is Meryl Streep out there someplace, possibly.)

Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson
Titanic, “My Heart Will Go On”


Celine Dion is constantly a win in my book. And as opposed to the character he was emulating for this routine, Kel did not sink. (There was absolutely area on that door for Jack.) The judges’ critiques seemed a small harsh for the largely-strong efficiency, but I assume it really is for the reason that they’ve currently set such higher expectations for him.

Sean Spicer and Lindsay Arnold
Saturday Evening Fever, “Evening Fever”

Cha Cha

It really is 2019 and Sean Spicer is John Travolta. File that below sentences I by no means believed I’d say. Sadly for Sean, the comparisons to John cease with the above sentence. He much more closely channeled the non-actual individual Adele Dazeem. Len named it “Monday Evening Lukewarm,” and he’s not incorrect.

Ray Lewis and Cheryl Burke, <em>Dancing with the Stars</em>Ray Lewis and Cheryl Burke, Dancing with the Stars

In no distinct order, these couples have been deemed secure: Ally and Sasha, Sean and Lindsay, Hannah and Alan, Lauren and Gleb, Kate and Pasha, James and Emma, Sailor and Val, and Karamo and Jenna. Kel and Witney and Lamar and Peta identified themselves in the bottom two, but (and raise your hand if you saw this coming) each Kel and Lamar have been saved for the reason that Ray had to withdraw from the competitors! Oh, difficult producers. See every person subsequent week!

Other Notable Moments:

  • Tom suggesting viewers play a confetti cannon drinking game. Your liver does not assistance this, as the final count was six.
  • Demi Lovato and Not Demi Lovato (aka Demi Burnett) side-by-side in the ballroom to assistance Hannah Brown.
  • Couple alert! Home Brother Jonathan Scott was in the audience with Zooey Deschanel. So I guess that partnership is officially official.
  • Len saying “do not touch me once again” following Ally ran more than to give him a higher 5. Way harsh, Len.
