During week 4 of “Dancing with the Stars,” the season 32 contestants paid tribute to Disney’s 100th anniversary. In some seasons, DWTS keeps everybody in the competition with this event, avoiding an elimination. Was that the case with the October 17 episode?
Here’s what you need to know:
The Couples in Danger of Elimination Were…
After 11 Disney-inspired performances, co-hosts Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough faced the task of telling the couples whether they were safe or in danger of elimination. Ahead of the elimination announcement, Barry Williams and Peta Murgatroyd, Lele Pons and Brandon Armstrong, as well as Adrian Peterson and Britt Stewart were the three couples at risk.
Ultimately, Adrian Peterson and Britt Stewart were eliminated in week 4 of “Dancing with the Stars” season 32.
‘Dancing With the Stars’ Disney Night Routines Prompted Lots of Praise

Mira Sorvino and Gleb Savchenko did a waltz to the “Cinderella” song “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes.” After their performance, the judges gave them a score of 21 out of 30. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said Sorvino was giving off “Queen Energy,” and judges Derek Hough and Tonioli had great things to say about the pair’s dance as well.
Barry Williams and Peta Murgatroyd danced a jazz routine to “He’s a Tramp,” a song from Disney’s “Lady and the Tramp.” They earned 18 out of 30 points from the judges. The judges noted there were some mistakes, but Hough called Williams “Barry Sinatra” and Inaba noted his charm.
Jason Mraz and Daniella Karagach created a foxtrot to the “Aladdin” song “A Whole New World.” They received 24 out of 30 points from the “Dancing with the Stars” judges. Inaba said she could tell Mraz was less comfortable with this style than his previous ones, but she still got chills and saw magic.
Lele Pons and Brandon Armstrong danced a rumba for Disney Night. They received 22 out of 30 points after dancing to “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from “The Lion King.” Both Inaba and Tonioli noticed Pons had worked to manage their previous critiques and corrections.

The Fun of Disney Night Continued With Fabulous Performances
