Monday’s episode of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” featured a double elimination, bidding adieu to two celebrity couples — Kim Fields and her dancing partner Sasha Farber and Von Miller and professional dancer Witney Carson.
Fields and Farber received a lot of positive comments from the judges for their routine to The Jackson 5’s “ABC” and got an impressive score of 27/30. But this did not help them stay on in the dancing competition. Shortly after the elimination, Fields took to Twitter to note that she was happy with her experience on the show.
“Wow. Well, @DancingABC was an absolutely amazing experience that I will treasure. Only the beginning… Thank you for all of your support,” she noted.
Meanwhile, Miller and Carson did a Salsa to “A Little Less Conversation” by Elvis Presley and their overall score for the night was 24/30.
The episode also saw two celebrity couples scoring a perfect 30 for their routines. The first was Paige VanZant and professional dancer Mark Ballas who did a Jive. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who is one of the harshest critics, was floored by their act to “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner. Although VanZant spoke about struggling with confidence issues in her pre-performance package, this wasn’t evident during her performance on Monday.
Talking to TVGuide after last week’s disappointing results, the professional UFC fighter said she had to work harder to remain out of the danger zone. “It felt really scary being at the bottom. I need to continue to remind the fans to vote even when I do get a good score because everything counts. It challenged me to work harder this week.”
The second couple to score a perfect 30 was Ginger Zee and and professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy who did a Viennese Waltz.
