6. James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd Re-Enacted Grease
With the assistance of a couple other professional dancers to start things off, Peta Murgatroyd and James Maslow killed it as the characters from Grease on the dance floor. While most of the judges loved their performance, Len Goodman was not a fan and thought that Maslow’s footing was too heavy. All in all, they got a great score of 35 out of 40.
7. Danica and Val Were Announced as Being in Jeopardy, Which Surprised the Audience
Tonight, Danica and Val shocked the audience when it was announced that they were in the bottom tonight. The two came out in a sexy routine to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The couple started things off very sensual and slow, giving the crowd a steamy show, but then broke out into a more upbeat routine. With 9’s across the board, the couple received a 36 out of 40.
By the way, partner Val announced that Danica actually has a boyfriend and his name is Scott. Val extended a “thank you” to Scott for allowing him to dance with Danica each week.
8. Maksim Gets Scared of the Competition, But Earns a Perfect Score With Meryl
Meryl Davis has a rough time with Maksim Chmerkovskiy this week as Maks begins to freak out, realizing he actually could win this season. Regardless of this, he pulled it together and did an amazing job with Meryl as usual. Len Goodman was the first judge to speak and gave Maksim such praise. It was so nice and refreshing and earned them a perfect score of 40 out of 40, all 10’s.

Competitor Charlie White also killed it tonight with dancer Sharna Burgess. In the middle of the routine, the ballroom went dark and used black lights with neon glow sticks to show off the couple’s moves. While they didn’t earn a perfect score like Maks and Meryl, Sharna and Charlie got a score of 36 out of 40.
9. Amy Purdy Stunned as Always
Purdy and Derek Hough amazed us all with another insane routine in the ballroom. As the two danced to “Shout” with a wedding theme and amped up the crowd, everyone cheered. Though there was a tiny slip up in the middle of the performance, the judges drooled over Amy Purdy as they have each week. The duo scored a 38 out of 40.

Drew Carey was the third contestant to be announced as being in jeopardy and ultimately, he was sent home.
On next week’s DWTS, Ricky Martin will be both a performer and a guest judge. It will be a Latin-themed night and it will be the first night that each couple has to perform two dances.
