‘DWTS’ 30×06 Recap: “Grease Night”
It was Grease night on DWTS as the celebrities and their pros put on amazing performances in tribute to the hit musical! Dancing to songs in order from the beginning of the film to the end, each couple put their own unique spin on the classics we have come to know and love. Plus, one couple received a perfect score before the final elimination happened at the end.
Who is safe and who, unfortunately, went home? Well, let’s go over the performances one more time before finding out who we had to let go of, despite how hopelessly devoted we are to them. See what we did there?
Grease Night was a huge hit worth celebrating
Olivia Jade and Val opened the night with a Foxtrot set to “Summer Nights.” Their dance kicked off an exciting tribute night to Grease and they impressed the judges with their interpretation of the beginning romance between Sandy and Danny from the film. Their score was 36/40.
Melora and Artem followed with a Viennese Waltz to “Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee.” This is one of my favorite songs from the musical so this was so fun to watch! Melora received plenty of praise from the judges and it was clear they worked hard to put together a fun performance. Their score was also 36/40.
Iman and Daniela also had a Viennese Waltz and danced to “Hopelessly Devoted To You.” They worked so hard to put together a routine that embraced the beauty and gentleness of the love between the two characters. Even though there were some hiccups in the dance, he tried hard to dance and perform with Daniela. Their score was 28/40.
The Miz and Witney performed a Jive to “Greased Lightning.” He had such high energy during the performance. Despite being a little too quick, t it was clear The Miz was enjoying himself. Both he and Witney did such a great job and we loved every second of it. Their score was 32/40.
Amanda and Alan were next with a Viennese Watz set to “Beauty School Drop Out.” What was so amazing about their performance was Frankie Avalon actually appeared in person to sing the iconic song! They had great chemistry and they got 39/40.
A celebrity makes a comeback and another has a perfect score
Suni and Sasha danced a Charleston to “Born To Hand Jive.” They clearly had so much fun with the dance. There was even a pie to the face at the end! They obtained a 36/40 from the judges.
Jimmie and Emma danced the Foxtrot to “Sandy.” First of all, we have to say congratulations to Jimmie and his wife as she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on the Saturday before his performance! They did a wonderful job as well, despite a little slip due to some possible grease on the floor! Their score was 34/40.
Kenya and Brandon were next with a Rumba to “There Are Worse Things I Could Do.” She performed the song to honor her grandmother, who raised her from birth. They put on a truly great performance. It showcased how they really wanted to stay after being in the bottom two again. Their score was 36/40.
Jojo and Jenna danced the Foxtrot as well to “Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee (Reprise).” You can see they have a truly beautiful bond as friends both on and off the dance floor. They truly put on a magical performance and got a full 40 points for their dance.
Gleb and Mel C were next with a Quickstep to “You’re The One That I Want.” Even though she talked about not having confidence, she really did shine in the routine. It was clear Mel had fun while doing so. They received 36/40.
The final dance of the night went to Cheryl and Cody. They had a Quickstep as well to “We Go Together.” Their dance was so energizing and a great way to end the night. Their score was 32/40.
A shocking elimination once again
When it came time to eliminate one couple, the bottom two this week were Mel C. and Olivia Jade. The final vote came to Len Goodman, which is still a bit confusing, to be honest. He chose to save Olivia, meaning Mel C was eliminated this week.
This was so hard to see, especially knowing how hard she has been improving each week. As a Spice Girls fan, it has been such a joy to watch her grow. I’ll miss seeing her every week! What was your favorite part of Grease Night on DWTS?
