The wonderful world of Disney+! Dancing with the stars paid tribute to the streaming platform on Monday, October 10’s episode with contestants dancing to songs from the content library.
After a variety of dances, including a Charleston and a Paso Doble, Sam champion and Cheryl Burke had the lowest score of the evening. Tied for 11th place were Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater and Joseph Baenac and Daniella Karagach.
After home viewers cast their votes, the bottom two couples were Donovan, 44, and Slater, 33, and Champion, 61, and Burke, 38. The judges voted unanimously to save the 90210 alum and his partner and Champion and Burke were eliminated.
Disney+ Night marked 29-year-old Karagach’s return to the show after a two-week absence due to a positive COVID-19 test. Her partner, Baena, 25, dressed up as Hercules for the couple’s performance on a song from the animated film of the same name. In a pre-taped package, the bodybuilder revealed that as a child he was “very insecure” “because I was overweight”. He compared his fitness journey to Hercules’ training in the film.
The jury couldn’t help but comment on Baena’s wardrobe, or the lack of it. “Put your shirt back on because it was distracting”, Carrie Ann Inaba joked before insuring Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s son that she was just kidding. Bruno Tonioli repeated the feelings, saying, “You’ve unleashed your pectoral pull. I don’t think anyone looked at your feet.”
After Baena showed his muscles, Jordin Sparks showed her vocal talent, singing the beginning of “Remember Me” from cocoa before starting her jazz routine with partner Brandon Armstrong. The american idol alum, 32, said the song holds a special place in her heart as a working musician and mother.
“I just want to [my son] to know that I love him even though I can’t be there all the time,” she said. The “One Step At a Time” singer shares 4-year-old Dana Isaiah Jr. with her husband, Dana Isaiah Sr. The father-son duo sat in the audience during Sparks’ performance.
Another dancer was also visited by someone dear to them. Jennifer Lewis resumed her Princess and the Frog role, singing “Dig a Little Deeper” live while her former assistant and boyfriend Shangela danced the Charleston with partner Gleb Savchenko.
During rehearsal, Lewis, 65, Shangela, 40, helped work on the judges’ main critique of the previous week – the RuPaul’s Drag Race alum’s tendency to have a sickle-shaped foot. After the duo did their Charleston, Inaba, 54, told the Texas resident that the sickle foot was gone.
In conversation with cohost Alfonso Ribeiro after the dance Shangela teased the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air alum for calling her Angela during a previous episode. Ribeiro, 51, replied that: Angela [Unkrich] is his wife’s name and therefore the inaccuracy was actually “an expression of affection”.
