 *eliminated this week

• "Disney Night" started off going to the dogs as Suzanne Somers and her partner Tony Dovolani performed their Jazz routine to "He's a Tramp" from Lady and the Tramp. Despite a little miscue with her dress, the judges thought it was Suzanne's best performance to date!

• Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson's emotional routine last week was like something out of a fairytale, but this week it was time to step it up for a Quickstep to "Step in Time" from Mary Poppins. Unfortunately those steps weren't quite in time and the judges made that pretty clear.

• Music legend Patti LaBelle has been positively enchanting so far this season, so only a truly enchanting song would do as she and Artem Chigvintsev danced the Waltz to "When You Wish Upon a Star" from Pinocchio. Despite an ongoing knee injury, Patti and Artem performed a flowing and beautiful dance.

• Next it was time to take a trip through the looking glass as Willow Shields and Mark Ballas danced the Foxtrot to "Alice's Theme" from the live-action Alice in Wonderland. The production was dazzling, but some early stumbles in the footwork and a little lightness on the Foxtrot content may have cost them with the judges.

• The ballroom needed a hero, so it called our very own Prince Farming, former Bachelor Chris Soules and his partner Witney Carson to dance the Quickstep to "Zero to Hero" from Disney's Hercules. An inury the morning before the performance may have derailed this hero's rise and the judges noticed.

• The dance floor became "A Whole New World" as Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess danced the Foxtrot to the hit song from Disney's Aladdin. The audience and the judges were transported and it was another fantastic performance.

• It was time to live a pirate's life as Riker Lynch and Allison Holker danced the Paso Doblé to "He's a Pirate" from Pirates of the Caribbean. It was a fierce performance accompanied with an incredible production that had the audience and the judges cheering.

• Things got a little villainous as Rumer Willis and Valentin Chmerkovskiy went under the sea to dance a salty Samba to "Poor Unfortunate Souls" from Disney's The Little Mermaid. It felt so good to be bad as the judges and audience were cheering on the classic villain!

• For the final dance of the night, Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough danced a peppy Jazz routine to "Love is an Open Door" from Disney's Frozen. The judges and the audience got to see such a sunny side of the couple and it was a magical finish to a magical night.

• Unfortunately, even Disney magic couldn't save one more couple from elimination. This week, it was time to say goodbye to Suzanne and Tony.
