This week on Dancing With the Stars the stars were dancing to songs representing their most memorable years.
This was a very memorable week for the stars and the emotion was evident for everyone watching. Laughing and crying, it was an incredibly moving night.
Riker’s dance had me cheering as he talked about his and R5’s rise to fame after so many years of hard work; Suzanne Somer’s dance was giving me flashbacks as she and Tony danced to the Three’s Company theme song on a recreated Three’s Company set. Meanwhile, Noah’s dance about his time in Iraq had me both smiling and in tears at home emotional it was.
