Season 21 | Week 3 | Aired: September 28, 2015
It was Week Three on DWTS and this week was TV Night which means each of the couples were dancing to theme songs from different shows!
There were many special guests this week including The Muppets and guest judge, season nine winner, Alfonso Ribeiro.
Having another judge means the total score has now gone from 30 to 40.
After their performance last week, Kim Zolciak returned home and while there she suffered a minor stroke caused by a blood clot. For obvious reasons she couldn’t fly out to dance this week which unfortunately meant that she and Tony were forced to withdraw.
The scores for TV Night were as follows:
Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson
Song: “Thank You For Being a Friend” – Cynthia Fee
Show: Golden Girls
Paula Deen & Louis van Amstel
Song: “The Ballad of Gilligan’s Isle” – The Eligibles

There were some truly wonderful dances tonight! Nick & Sharna and Alexa & Mark tied for first place with their scores tonight, while Paula and Louis had the lowest score.
While I understand the rules, I also feel it’s a little unfair that Kim has been forced to withdraw only because she wasn’t able to get on a plane. I hope that she makes a full recovery soon.
Week Three means there was another elimination and the couples in jeopardy tonight were Andy & Allison and Paula & Louis. However, because of Kim and Tony’s withdrawal, both the couples were safe.
Come on guys! Remember to vote! Andy and Allison shouldn’t have been in jeopardy this week and we don’t want another Willow and Mark incident like last season!
What did you think of tonight’s dances? Who are you rooting for?
