“Dancing With the Stars” Brings the Magic (and the First Perfect Score!) on Disney Night

Last week, the remaining couples on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars dug deep to perform their most emotional routines yet in tribute to their most memorable years. This week, they got to let loose and have a little fun. The theme of the October 16 episode was “Disney Through the Ages,” and it was, as promised, the most magical night of the season so far.

Each of the 10 pairs danced to a classic Disney tune, from 1928’s “Steamboat Willie” (Victoria and Val) to “Remember Me” from the upcoming Disney-Pixar movie Coco (Nikki and Artem). Vanessa and Maks waltzed to Snow White‘s “Someday My Prince Will Come,” Terrell and Cheryl quickstepped to The Lion King‘s “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” Frankie and Witney tangoed to “Angelica” from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides — there was even a group dance by the DWTS troupe to “We’re All in This Together” from High School Musical.

The episode also saw the first perfect score of the season — 30 out of 30! — for Jordan and Lindsay, who dazzled with a foxtrot to his version of “You’re Welcome” from Moana.

Unfortunately, the magic had to end for one couple, as Sasha and Gleb were eliminated based on a combination of judges’ scores and fan votes.

Check out the rest of the week five rankings below. (These rankings are based solely on scores from Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli, but as DWTS fans know, eliminations are based on a combination of scores and votes, so get to voting for your favorite pair.)
