‘DWTS’ Most Memorable Year Week 5 Recap
DWTS Season 31 has introduced us to an amazing cast. We’ve seen these celebrities undergo transformations as they allowed each dance they performed to showcase who they were deep down. Of course, this is the case every season, but we’ve truly enjoyed watching what this cast can do. In fact, it was very apparent, especially for one star who unfortunately could not continue. Find out what happened during DWTS Most Memorable Year night.
Starting this week off with their most memorable year, Week 5 is set to be a two-night event. Monday focused on the celebrity’s most memorable year while Tuesday found focus on Prom Night. From the births of their children to making it big in Hollywood, there was a story to tell for everyone.
We had a surprising goodbye for DWTS Most Memorable Year night.
Every performance was simply magical. Each couple has improved so much and we’re only halfway through. For the night’s big event, we were looking forward to seeing what they had to offer. With the lowest score being 29/40 from Jessie James Decker, it was clear that they have been making remarkable steps to stay in the competition.
Unfortunately, one couple did leave, but not in the usual way. Because of Selma Blair’s Multiple Sclerosis, she has had to be extremely careful with her health. But after five weeks, a doctor’s appointment found that the competition was too much for her bones. For the sake of her health, she needed to drop out of DWTS. It was such a shock for everyone and every single person in the ballroom was in tears.
It was such a beautiful moment to see the entire cast come out on stage to support her as she said her goodbyes. And even though the scores wouldn’t count in the competition, the judges gave her dance a perfect 40/40.
Selma’s courage on the dance floor, and in general, has been so inspiring to watch. We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to watch her shine and we wish her the best as she takes care of her health.
We’ll still have an opportunity to see the rest of the couples on the dance floor. Tuesday, Oct. 18 will find them reminiscing on their prom nights. Plus, they will be performing again for a dance battle before someone is eliminated.
Before we watch them for a second night after the DWTS Most Memorable Year episode, let’s recap their scores for Monday night.
