‘DWTS’ Elvis Night has the contestants swinging their hips
DWTS Elvis Night had the Season 31 cast shaking, rattling, and rolling to the classic songs that have been a hit for decades. Celebrating the music of Elvis Presley, everyone got to enjoy themselves for a night filled with fun and electrifying performances. Of course, there was some drama in terms of COVID claiming one of the pros. However, the couples took everything in stride and worked together to have an amazing night of fun!
DWTS Elvis Night finds a dancer out with COVID
Daniella Karagach, unfortunately, tested positive for COVID just before the big night. Dance trouper Alexis Warr Burton took over to dance with her partner, Joe Baena. To both their credit, they did a great job despite the change in partners and had a decent score of 24/40. We just know Daniella would be proud! This isn’t the second time the show has dealt with this. Last season, Cheryl Burke contracted COVID and missed two episodes, having to perform from home instead of in person with her partner at the time.
On a night filled with performances of songs such as “Jailhouse Rock” and “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You,” we got scores over 20, with the lowest score from Cheryl Ladd and Louis Van Amstel. They ended up in the bottom two with Teresa Guidice and Pasha Pashkov. On the flip side, a few couples shared the lead with 32 points out of a total of 40. When it came time for elimination, it was sad to see yet another couple go, but we’re always eager to see who made it!
As a reminder, when it comes to voting, the judges choose who they will save, with Len Goodman getting an extra vote as head judge. This was confusing last year and is still hard to follow, but this is how it is being done.
Breaking down the dances.
Unfortunately, Teresa and Pashkov were not selected to continue. We wish Teresa all the best and are happy to have gotten the chance to see her dance, even if it was just for a short time!
