"DWTS" Week 6 Recap: The Ballroom Goes to Hollywood

October 23, 2017

Last night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars” was quite possibly the best theme of the season so far. Dubbed “A Night at the Movies,” you really just can’t go wrong with dances centered around Tinseltown. Shania Twain also made an appearance as a guest judge, and we gotta say, we really loved her. Plus, the couples’ performances were seriously on point. Read on for our top highlights of the episode!

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

Well, this couple is back at the top of our list this week. After last week’s perfect score the stakes were high, but Jordan Fisher BROUGHT it, even after working through an old gymnastics hip injury. The pair danced a heart-wrenchingly beautiful Rumba to Ed Sheeran’s “Supermarket Flowers,” that told the story of losing a loved one. (Yeah, we dare you not to cry.) We’re thinking this couple might just be the one to outlast ’em all…

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

Lindsay Stirling and partner Mark Ballas managed to score the night’s only perfect score, thanks to their seriously cool and sultry sci-fi themed Argentine tango. Lindsay wowed with tons of contortionist-like tricks and an impressive dive into Mark’s arms. The judges were floored, and Bruno Tonioli even commented that it just might be the best dance of the whole season. 😱

Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke

We wouldn’t have considered contestant Terrell Owens to be a highlight in other weeks, but last night he showed off some supremely improved moves. It was the cleanest piece we’ve seen him do, and he and partner Cheryl Burke were rewarded with one of the night’s high scores. Check out the pair’s jive to “Feel It Still” by Portugal. It was pure 🔥 .

Alas, someone had to be sent home, though, and the couple that ended up getting a not-so-Hollywood ending was Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd.

What do you think? Was the right couple sent home? Let us know! And check back here next week for another recap.
