‘Dancing With the Stars': Nyle DiMarco Dances in Silence, As Another Contestant Gets the Boot
With only six contestants left on Season 22 of “Dancing With the Stars,” the pressure was on for all the contestants Monday night.
And the challenges keep on coming as the pairs had to dance to two songs this week, as well as competing in the Judges’ Team-Up Challenge — where two stars were paired together and coached by one of the three judges.
“Full House” actress Jodie Sweetin had been a star back on the rise, but sadly that all came to a crushing end.
Her euphoric jive to “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” by Christina Aguilera sparked strong praise from the judges. “This was your best dance ever,” Carrie Ann Inaba said, while Len Goodman told her “you have grown and you have flown … I have not seen any dance that has made me so happy.”
However, even a perfect score of 30 wasn’t enough to make up for past blunders, and Sweetin ended up on the chopping block.
“I got to go out on all 10s,” the ever-cheerful former child star gushed when she was told the bad news, adding: “And I start production on ‘Fuller House’ tomorrow,” so at least she will have plenty of work to fill her spare time with.
After a rough couple of performances, Nyle DiMarco bounced back to the top of the leaderboard last week — and completely blew away the judges Monday night without having to utter a sound.
The deaf “America’s Next Top Model” alum danced a section of his pasodoble in complete silence to “give people a perspective on what it is like to dance without sound.”
