Magic was in the DWTS ballroom on Tuesday, October 17, for Disney night! The remaining 11 couples danced to songs from iconic Disney movies in celebration of Disney’s 100th anniversary. Last Tuesday’s scores had a nine-point gap between the lowest to highest couples, with scores ranging from 18 to 27. 

Real estate broker and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills husband Mauricio Umansky and his partner Emma Slater were the first couple on the dancefloor. They opened the show with their Paso Doble to “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” from Fantasia. However, the routine only earned them a 19 out of 30.

Next up, Academy-award winner Mira Sorvino and Gleb Savchenko danced a beautiful Waltz to “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella. Despite injuring her wrist during rehearsals, Sorvino was still able to push through and earn 21 points.

The Brady Bunch star Barry Williams and his partner Peta Murgatroyd danced a Jazz to “He’s a Tramp” from Lady and the Tramp. Despite Williams’ continuous determination for higher scores, he did encounter some missteps during his dance, which landed him tied at the bottom of the week’s leaderboard with 18 out of 30 points

Grammy winner Jason Mraz and his partner Daniella Karagach were next with their Foxtrot to “A Whole New World” from Aladdin. In their package, Mraz shared that “the top of the leaderboard makes me nervous.” Despite his doubts, the couple earned 24 points, landing them tied at third place on the leaderboard.

Social media personality Lele Pons and her partner Brandon Armstrong danced next with their Rumba to “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from The Lion King. In their package, Pons admitted “she let herself down” with her Cha Cha the previous week, and she promised to be less hard on herself moving forward. The couple’s Rumba ended up earning the couple 22 points, and we can’t wait to see how Pons and Armstrong do this week!

Actress Alyson Hannigan danced a Jazz with her partner Sasha Farber to “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast. Judge Derek Hough explained the routine “lacked a little bit of content,” and judge Carrie Ann Inaba agreed. The routine earned the couple 18 points, having them tied at the bottom of the leaderboard with Williams and Murgatroyd. 

Too Hot To Handle star Harry Jowsey and Rylee Arnold danced a Quickstep to “You’ve Got a Friend In Me” from Toy Story, which earned them 21 points. Jowsey dedicated the dance to his close friend who passed away a few years ago. After earning three “7’s,” Jowsey emotionally shared that he believes his late friend was watching. 

Actress Xochitl Gomez and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy were next with their Paso Doble to “Un Poco Loco” from Coco. The judges raved about the routine and gave Gomez a score of 27 out of 30. Football star Adrian Peterson and Britt Stewart then danced a Viennese Waltz to “Baby Mine” from Dumbo. The “elegant” routine earned the couple a 21 out of 30.

Vanderpump Rules reality star Ariana Madix and her partner Pasha Pashkov were up next with their Contemporary to “Into the Unknown” from Frozen II. The judges praised the routine and gave the couple 25 points.

Finally, Bachelorette star Charity Lawson and her partner Artem Chigvintsev closed the show with their Viennese Waltz to “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid. Judge Bruno Tonioli called the dance a “wonderful, uplifting waltz” and a “fitting finale” for the episode. The routine earned the couple 24 points, having them tied with Mraz and Karagach for third place on the leaderboard.  

When it came time for elimination, Peterson and Stewart, Hannigan and Farber, and Pons and Armstrong found themselves as the bottom three based on viewers’ votes. After a dramatic wait, it was revealed that Peterson and Stewart would be the couple going home.
