Dancing With the Stars Week Six: “A Night at the Movies” Recap

Dancing with the Stars S25 Cast

This week on DWTS the couples were off to the movies!

The scoring this week was out of 40 as the regular judges were joined by special guest judge, Shania Twain.

Each couple was assigned a film genre and had to come up with a dance that both incorporated the ballroom style they were given and that genre.

Each dance was interesting and incorporated the genre they were given in a unique and creative way.

Something else that was unique and creative (and quite controversial) was Shania Twain’s performance mid-way through the show. There is a lot of critique about her entire appearance during week six, but what I’m talking about is when she got up to perform her song “Soldier”.

Now, I’m no expert, but I work in a music store. And during her performance she sounded exactly (like scarily so) like the recording of that song that is on her new album. I’m not saying for sure whether or not she lip synced, but something about the whole performance was definitely off.

The competition is continuing to heat up the further into it we get and every dancer brought their A-game this week.

Unfortunately, there still had to be an elimination. Throughout the course of the night it was announced which couples were safe and which ones were in jeopardy.

Initially in jeopardy this week: Nick & Peta; Victoria & Val; Terrell & Cheryl.

The last couple called to be called safe was Victoria & Val, leaving Terrell & Cheryl and Nick & Peta in jeopardy.

The couple eliminated in week six was Nick and Peta.

Sad to see them go, though I think after all the weeks of them being in jeopardy and scraping by we knew it was going to come. Nick brought a lot of fun to the competition and we all know this won’t be the last we see of him. It’s safe to say he’ll be in the audience every week now to cheer on Vanessa.

Which dance was your favourite? Is the couple you’re rooting for still in the running?
