Dancing With the Stars: Juniors bid farewell to another dancing duo last night. During a fun "Time Machine" Night – where each routine was based on a different era of music and dance – on Week 7 of the hit show, the five remaining pint-sized partners hit the dance floor to wow the judges.
Despite everyone giving it their all, hosts Jordan Fisher and Frankie Muniz were given the unfortunate task of revealing which couple would be packing their bags: Mandla Morris and pro Brightyn Brems – mentored by Cheryl Burke.
They danced a futuristic Paso Doble to "Gangsta’s Paradise" by 2WEI. Judge Val Chmerkovskiy thought there were "moments where you hit it hard and you hit it will," but he wished there were "a little more fight in that." Mandy Moore thought there were some technical problems, but she appreciated his passion. Adam Rippon said that what he has done without past dance experience is "incredible," and "I’m not mad at it."
The elimination leaves four remaining teams. Here’s what the judges thought of their performances:
Miles Brown & Rylee Arnold, mentored by Lindsay Arnold, danced the Jive to "Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley & His Comets for a ‘50s themed dance. Mandy said Miles is in it to win it, while Val praised the performance for having "so much soul!" They scored 28.
Mackenzie Ziegler & Sage Rosen, mentored by Gleb Savchenko, dance Jazz to "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen for an ‘80s themed performance. The judges all loved her as a dancer, but agreed that she needs more emotion in her performance. They scored 26.
Ariana Greenblatt & Artyon Celestine, mentored by Brandon Armstrong, danced the Quickstep to "Classic" by MKTO for a ‘40s themed performance. The judges said the dance was "terrific" and left them wanting even more. They scored 27.
Sky Brown & JT Church, mentored by Alan Bersten, danced the Charleston to "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)" by Fergie feat. Q-Tip & GoonRock for a ‘20 themed performance. The judges loved the performance, praising the pair for their "good work" on the routine. They scored 27.AUDIO: DANCING WITH THE STARS JUNIORS MANDLA MORRIS IS ELIMINATED
