Who doesn’t love the movies?! Last night, Dancing with the Stars celebrated the big screen with “A Night at the Movies.” As a special treat, Shania Twain guest judged the show, and preformed the song “Soldier” from her new album “Now.”

#TeamSmackdown

Nikki was looking hotter than ever last night, but her dance wasn’t as hot as she would have liked. Artem lost his balance, causing Nikki to tip over a during a difficult dance move. Len said the dance was still great. Carrie Ann said Nikki can still go far in the competition. More good news, Tom let Nikki know she was safe from elimination tonight!

Carrie Ann: 9

The dance was fun to watch, but Emma gave Drew a really tough routine. Len called the entire routine awkward! He said the whole dance was lacking finesse. There was a group dance in the routine when everyone on stage had to dance in unison, and Drew completely missed his count.

Carrie Ann: 7
Len: 7
Shania Twain: 9
Bruno: 7
TOTAL: 30/40

#TeamMomAndPops

Nick is getting frustrated with himself. He’s been in jeopardy on DWTS more times than he’s been safe. Bruno thought the line dancing was fabulous, but the samba could use some work. Nick was looking labored every time he had to do the samba. Carrie Ann agreed that the line dancing was great. Even Shania said that Nick’s lack of confidence didn’t play out well on stage.

Carrie Ann: 7
Len: 6
Shania Twain: 7
Bruno: 6
TOTAL: 26/40

Victoria Arlen & Val Chmerkovskiy

#TeamViVa

It was only right the ESPN host had the sports genre! Victoria may be tiny, but she is mighty! Victoria looked fierce on the dance floor (or the ice rink). The only criticism from two judges was she needs to watch her hands.

Carrie Ann: 8
Len: 8
Shania Twain: 7
Bruno: 8

#TeamGetchaPopcorn

We’d like whatever T.O. is having, because he was a completely different dancer last night! He had style, it wasn’t forced, and every move he made was smooth. Cheryl was on T.O. in dress rehearsal, and whipped him into shape.

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Shania Twain: 10
Bruno: 9

#TeamFranneyPack

Frankie brought the energy to the table last night. The set of the dance was bright and colorful, but the judges still saw quite a few mistakes. Frankie was missing steps and getting off beat during his routine.

Carrie Ann: 7
Len: 8
Shania Twain: 8
Bruno: 8
TOTAL: 31/40

Vanessa Lachey & Maksim Chmerkovskiy

#TeamBabiesandBallrooms

It was only about 20 seconds in when Vanessa accidentally lost part of her skirt! She was supposed to lose the skirt later on. That being said, she kept up her composure and went with the flow. There were only a few missteps, and the judges didn’t fault her for her wardrobe malfunction.

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Shania Twain: 9
Bruno: 9

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

#TeamFishUponAStar

The judges can’t deny that Jordan is a great dancer. His moves flow from one to the next, he is expressive with his face and his dancing. He is light on his feet, and can work the camera. There was only one critique from Len that made him lose a point: he needs to stop doing extra fancy hand movements and just do the routine!

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 9
Shania Twain: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 39/40

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

#TeamSTARK

The choreography was phenomenal, the dancing was brilliant, and Lindsey looked robotic, sexy, and elegant all at once. Bruno called this the dance of the season! Lindsey will be one to look out for!

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 10
Shania Twain: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 40/40

The stars in jeopardy are Terrell, Nick, and Victoria. Nick with Peta, and Terrell with Cheryl are at the bottom. This week, Nick and Peta didn’t make it out.

Nick is glad for the experience and both Nick and Peta are happy to get back home to their babies. Nick will still be around to cheer on Vanessa from the sidelines!

Tune into Dancing with the Stars next Monday at 8|7c on ABC for a special Halloween episode.
