Dancing With the Stars’ Disney Night Recap: Another Celeb Is Sent Home! Plus, Who Received the First Perfect Score?


Let’s go to the happiest place on Earth: the ballroom!

Dancing  With the Stars went all out (animation included!) for its Disney Night on Monday, April 14, which featured the nine remaining pairings performing dances to classic Disney songs from films such as Frozen, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and more.

After the polarizing Switch Up twist last week, which resulted in some lackluster performances, the celebrities returned to their original dance partners, making for a magical night of competition. Plus, former DWTS champ Donny Osmond stopped by to serve as Disney Night’s guest judge, so the pressure was on.

Alas, one celeb’s time in the ballroom didn’t have a fairy tale ending. So who went home on the ABC reality hit?

Australian pop star Cody Simpson‘s DWTS journey has come to an end as he and partner Witney Carson found themselves with the lowest number of votes. The other two couples in the bottom three? Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas and NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani. Before their ousting, Cody and Witney scored 34 points for their samba inspired by The Lion King.

On the flip side, Big Time Rush hunk James Maslow netted the first perfect score of the season with his contemporary dance to the Oscar-winning song “Let It Go” from Frozen. “That would melt the coldest heart, even mine,” judge Len Goodman gushed, while Bruno Tonioli called the routine “a contemporary blockbuster.”

Here is a rundown of the night’s performances and scores:

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd: 40 points for their contemporary dance to “Let It Go” from Frozen
Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy:
39 points for their quickstep to “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast
Charlie White and Sharna Burgess: 37 points for their jazzto “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins
AmyPurdy and Derek Hough: 37 points for their waltz to “So This Is Love” from Cinderella
Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 36 points for their samba to “I Wanna Be Like You” from The Jungle Book
NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani: 36 points for their foxtrot to “Cruella de Vil” from 101 Dalmatians
Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas: 35 points for their samba to “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid
Cody Simpson and Witney Carson: 34 points for their samba to “I Just Can’t Wait to be King” from The Lion King (Eliminated)
Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke: 28 points for their quickstep to “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin
