‘DWTS’ 31×03 review: Bond night makes for sultry dances
DWTS Bond Night gave the celebrity dancers and their pros the chance to show off their moves to songs from the James Bond movie franchise. They did this as a celebration of 60 years of James Bond and the films that introduced his story to generations. For this night in particular, the Rumba took center stage as the dance many of them performed. However, we also got some Argentine Tango, a Samba, and the Cha-Cha. Check out our recap to find out how well the celebrities did.
DWTS Bond Night celebrated 60 years of James Bond
Despite seeing the same dance performed in this episode for DWTS Bond Night, they were all different. Each celebrity truly made the dances work for themselves, with minor setbacks, but amazing numbers. It was a joy to watch everyone have fun and get into character for their routines.
Once against, Joe Baena danced with Alexis Warr since his original partner, Daniella Karagach tested positive for COVID. They did a great job and while we love to see this pairing, we’re excited for Daniella’s return! Alexis definitely deserves recognition for stepping in and doing an amazing job.
As always, the night ended with a difficult decision of who would be voted off. This time, it was between Sam Champion and Cheryl Ladd. Even though Ladd did an incredible job in her attempt to come back from the bottom two last time, it didn’t work out.
DWTS has some incredible dances this season so far
All of the judges ended up saving Sam and his partner, Cheryl Burke. Even though they were voted off, we truly loved seeing Cheryl and Louis on the dance floor.
We’re already looking forward to week 4 and will be tuning in to watch our favorites. Plus, don’t forget to vote to save your favorite celebrity! Let us know in the comments below who you’re rooting for. Check out the breakdown of each celebrity performance.

Cheryl and Louis also danced the Rumba to “Diamonds are Forever,” the theme to James Bond. This was their chance to make it back from being in the bottom two during Elvis week. They received a score of 24/40.
