"DWTS" Week 3 Recap: Vegas Night

April 3, 2017

Ohhh, Vegas Night. We ❤️ you. The glitz. The glam. The flash. It’s almost too much for our “Dancing with the Stars“-loving hearts to bear. Basically, ICYMI, last night’s episode did not disappoint. The night kicked off with a fab opening number depicting a Vegas Bachelorette group and quickly turned into a super energetic dance party. Read on for our favorite moments.

First things first, I think we may have a new front-runner this season, ladies and gents. As much as we adore Heather Morris (and predicted a sweeping win for her), she may very well have some competition in fellow contestant Normani Kordei of Fifth Harmony fame. Kordei. Slayed. Last. Night. Her performance quality is insane and she’s just so, so good. We dare you to watch her “Big Spender” foxtrot with partner Val Chmerkovskiy from last night and not be impressed.

That being said, Heather Morris (aka Brittany S. Pierce) gave us everything we ever dreamed of last night with her tango set to Britney Spears‘ “Toxic.” Even the judges were awestruck and loved the musicality in the piece. Since Morris’ partner Maks Chmerkovskiy is still out with an injury (pleaseee, feel better soon Maks! We miss you!), she danced again with Alan Bersten and their chemistry was significantly improved from last week. Provided Maks is able to dance again this season, I think it’s safe to say that one of the Chmerkovskiy brothers will be leaving with that Mirror Ball Trophy (again).

At the end of the night, Charo and partner Keo Motsepe were sent home and we can’t say we were surprised, but we sure will miss getting to watch Motsepe perform. What did you think? Was the right person sent home?

Tune in next week for the show’s Most Memorable Year theme—which always promises to be a tearjerker—and check back here for our recap!
