The remaining Dancing with the Stars cast took part in a lot of Mickey Mouse routines on “Disney Night” in Week 4 of Season 22 with guest judge Zendaya. As you’d expect, the costumes were sparkling, the music was popping and the dance routines were some of the happiest on Earth. There were tributes to classics like Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, Toy Story, The Jungle Book and more. Which team came out on top on Disney Night and who had to bid adieu to the ballroom? Let’s find out now!
Antonio Brown & Sharna Burgess performed a Jazz routine to “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin. Antonio let the genie out of the bottle and turned in his best dance of the season. Len said the dancer inside Antonio came out tonight. Bruno said he could have been a Rockette, which is probably a compliment. 9-8-9-9 from the judges gives them a 35 for the night.
Marla Maples & Tony Dovolani did a Waltz to “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid. Bruno felt there was nothing fishy about the performance, but he wants her to maintain things throughout the entire performance. Carrie and Zendaya want her to enjoy herself and Len felt it was another solid performance. Four 7s from the judges give her a total of 28 for the night.
Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd did a Samba to “Trashin’ the Camp” from Tarzan. The King of the Jungle felt right at home in the ballroom doing a fantastic flip to kick things off. Bruno said the loincloth-wearing Nyle was “perfectly undressed for the occasion” and dubbed him “Lord of the Dance.” Carrie Ann feels like Nyle, not Disneyland, is the happiest place on Earth. Len didn’t care for all the bongo stuff, but like the Samba. 8-8-9-9 from the judges.
Doug Flutie & Karina Smirnoff did a Jazz routine to “A Spoonful of Sugar” from Mary Poppins. There were a few technical issues that caused some problems at the beginning of the dance, but Doug powered through. Carrie Ann saw there was great intention with the routine, but he didn’t quite pull it off. Len agreed that he got out of sync. Bruno said the second half of the dance wasn’t bad. Scores of 6-6-6-6 from the judges gave them a low of 24 for the night.
Kim Fields & Sasha Farber did the Quickstep to “I Wan’na Be Like You” from The Jungle Book. There were no loincloths in this routine, but there was plenty of action. Len called it Kim’s best dance so far. Zendaya loved how much fun she was having. Bruno called her the “fastest girl in the jungle” and praised her for keeping her shoulders under control. Four 8s from the judges came shortly after Kim did a nifty flying leap into Bruno’s arms.
Jodie Sweetin & Keo Motsepe did the Cha Cha to “Try Everything” from Zootopia. With a little animated help from Gazelle. Zendaya said that Jodie fumbled a bit but did it with a smile on her face. Bruno wants to see her “wow factor” come out. Carrie Ann called the performance was underwhelming. Len disagreed, but still gave her the lowest score in the reveal of 7-6-7-7 from the judges.
Von Miller & Witney Carson did a Viennese Waltz “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella. The carriage they showed up in was the one used in the live action movie. Bruno was totally enchanted by Prince Charming’s performance. Carrie remarked at how stunning Witney looked as Cinderella and called Von “adorable.” Len said he went from drab to fab in a week. Zendaya said everyone got caught up in the fairytale. Four 8s from judges gave them a total of 32.
Ginger Zee & Valentin Chmerkovskiy did the Foxtrot “Belle” from Beauty and the Beast. It’s fitting that this routine came a day after Once Upon a Time’s “Her Handsome Prince” episode featuring Belle and Gaston aired. Carrie Ann felt Ginger was literally the Belle of the Ball. Len felt it was a tasty dish in what was the best dance of the season for him so far. Bruno loved the acting as well as the dancing. The judges gave them scores of 9-9-9-9 for a total of 36, which would be good enough for a tie for high score of the night.
Wanya Morris & Lindsay Arnold performed a Samba to “Circle of Life” from The Lion King. It was a roaring, ferocious routine that was full of attack and action. Len thought the dance was fantastic. Zendaya felt he totally did The Lion King justice. Bruno called him a “magnificent beast.” Carrie Ann thought he over-danced a bit in the beginning. This comment got the crowd all riled up. The cheers came once again with scores of 8-9-9-9 from the judges.
Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas end the evening with a Quickstep to “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story. With an assist from some green army soldiers, the team certainly ended the night on a high note. Zendaya felt like she was 9-years-old again watch the dance. Bruno felt the team went for infinity and beyond. Len felt it was a great end to a great evening. Scores of 9-9-9-9 put the team in a tie for high score of the night.
At the end of the evening, we had to bid adieu to Marla Maples. As for the rest of the cast, they have to prepare for a dance with a new partner for Switch Up Week!
