Dancing With The Stars gave us a packed show on Monday night as they rolled with a “Villains” them ahead of the Halloween holiday. We had some good costumes, better dances, and one pro who worked through an injury to perform.
It was reported that pro Cheryl Burke, who is paired with former Backstreet Boy AJ McLean had suffered an injury during rehearsal (story HERE) but would still perform. Burke and McLean did a great job with their Psycho themed outing and would survive the evening along with earning the respect of the social media masses.
As far as the competition, Nev Schulmann and Jenna Johnson earned the first perfect score of the season with their Black Swan inspired performance. Nelly got high marks in what was being called his best dance for his turn as Freddy Krueger, and Disney Channel star, Skai Jackson was once again the favorite on social media as the Bride Of Chucky.
In the end it came down to Jeanne Mai and Monica Aldama. And once again the spotlight was on judege Carrie Ann Inaba casting the deciding vote to send Aldama home, which was the general consensus online when her performance as Nurse Ratchet didn’t go as well as many would have liked.
Other high points included Derek Hough arguing with himself as Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde and the overall flow of the show. There was so much going on that the time just zipped by.
And thank goodness they save enough time not to rush the judges during the elimination, which in the past was widely panned as being rude to everyone involved. An extra minute or two matters on this terrific program.
