Halloween and Dancing with the stars They are always a great combination: the show is designed for exaggerated costumes and large production numbers that bring a Halloween theme, but add little humans with tiny human costumes and the fun factor rises a bit. Come and see the cute children who really get into the character, stay with Val Chmerkovskiy dressed as Danny Zuko. You will not regret this choice.
Akash Vukoti and Kamri Peterson
Mentor: Witney Carson
Tango Argentino, "Strange Science" by Oingo Boingo
If someone in this program should play a mad scientist, he is the cutest nerd on the planet, Akash. He and Kamri are dancing an Argentine tango, a style that is generally based on passion and chemistry between peers, which is a lot to ask of a 9-year-old boy. (Sometimes, a lot to ask a 30-year-old boy). But Witney gives the couple a creative choreography, is a mad scientist who has built a robot girl, and everything works in his favor. Our three judges agree that this is one of Akash's best dances, glasses malfunction and all!
Score of the judges: 21/30
Mandla Morris and Brightyn Brems
Mentor: Cheryl Burke
Charleston, "wizard doctor" by cartoon
Mandla is back, baby! Your "witch" Charleston with Brightyn is fast and full of tricks (appropriate for Halloween Night, right?). Delivering a lot of uprisings to a teenager is not an easy order: Mandla has to work on her stamina and power during rehearsals, but it's worth it in the presentation! Still my heart, Val is very proud of Mandla for working hard and addressing a lot of content from Charleston and Mandy believes it is as good as her week-long routine, which really sets a standard. A redemption of Halloween night if there ever was one.
Score of the judges: 23/30
Mackenzie Ziegler and Sage Rosen
Teacher: Gleb Savchenko
Jive, "Monster Mash" by Atwater Men's Club
I will always have problems with MacKenzie as a contestant in this program, but I bless her for being here just because she gives Gleb a princess makeover. Our Gleb! It seems he's enjoying this mentoring, huh? The whole team feels good after their three years in Disney Week, but that also puts pressure on this jive. His "Monster Mash" is a Junior High Dance full of Monster, which is basically the same as saying "It's a Junior High Dance". Mandy believes that MacKenzie loses character and focuses in and out of transitions, something to work on for the next time – Otherwise, it's a technically strong jive.
Score of the judges: 25/30
Jason Maybaum and Elliana Walmsley
Mentor: Emma Slater
Tango Argentino, "Youngblood" for 5 Seconds of Summer
After seeing the images of Jason's essay, my hopes were not high for this Argentine tango. He is a foolish boy and most of his dances have played so far. The Argentine tango is very serious. It seemed that even Emma, dear sweet Emma, was getting a little frustrated with the lack of concentration. But then that little vampire went to the dance floor to dance the tango with Patty (the secretary) and made everyone leave. Jason is improving and improving each week and the judges are realizing, they give him and Elliana their best score of the competition.
Score of the judges: 25/30
Ariana Greenblatt and Artyon Celestine
Mentor: Brandon Armstrong
Paso Doble, "Ways to be evil" by Dove Cameron, Sophia Carson, Cameron Boyce and Booboo Stewart
Speaking of mentors who are frustrated in rehearsals, Brandon does not have Ariana and his "double-step" bit sounds like Picasso. He's tough with Ariana and Artyon this week and it seems he's having a lot of trouble catching the intense choreography of steps. She brings that intensity Descendants 2-Thematic step, but the judges are tough with the little dancer this week. Adam wants to see a "greater range of emotion," Val wants more content in the dance style, and Mandy believes that she needs to be challenged more. A lot of messages mixed there, panel of judges!
Score of the judges: 22/30
Alana Thompson and Tristan Ianiero
Mentor: Artem Chigvintsev
Jazz, "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr.
If this show is remembered for something, let it be that moment Honey Boo Boo caught Ghost Len Goodman with a proton pack. Or maybe that time, Artem said: "I have to believe you're seeing ghosts" and it was very serious. What a moment to be alive! The jazz of Alana and Tristan is definitely entertaining, and ends with limo! – and you can see that Alana is really doing her best in this competition. Adam thinks that he always gives 100 percent, Val had a good time and Mandy Moore, the queen of jazz, tells Alana that she reached all the bases of jazz. The judges consider it a solid performance on Halloween Night. As the lady said, "They do not call [her] Honey Boo Boo for nothing. "
Score of the judges: 21/30
Church Sky Brown and JT
Mentor: Alan Bersten
Jive, "Little Shop of Horrors" by KIDZ BOP Kids
Everyone is having a hard time this week! Sky gets frustrated when he can not pick up the jive choreography and the little nugget starts crying. Everything must stop immediately once Sky Brown starts crying. It is too precious to cry! Remember when he told everyone to be brave? Fortunately, with the help of Alan, she recovers and she and JT achieve their creepy routine. Seriously, did that creepy hem hike do it? It will pursue my dreams. So, mission accomplished, I suppose?
Score of the judges: 26/30
Miles Brown and Rylee Arnold
Mentor: Lindsay Arnold
Samba, "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow
THIS KID. Adam is right: Miles looks like a professional out there. I mean, did you see his legs during this samba? His technique is by leaps and bounds ahead of the other participants. The trick or treating samba of Miles and Rylee is fast, furious and full of technical content. And the judges go crazy for it. Mandy says there's magic in acting and she loves to see her transition from actor to amazing dancer. Val, evoking the Ghost of Len Goodman, is more than proud to see Miles in Latin shoes doing a proper samba. There are no tricks, everything is about.
Score of the judges: 27/30
Unfortunately, someone's Halloween will end with a rotten note. We say goodbye to …Team Artem: Alana and Tristan.. I definitely thought I was going to take advantage of his popularity and personality a bit more, but it seems to me that Live Audience is very hard.
