What a night!
We’re already in week four of Dancing With the Stars — and pairs including Peta Murgatroyd and Nick Viall, Sharna Burgess and Bonner Bulton, Simone Biles and Sasha Farber, and more brought out some of their best moves for Most Memorable Year night!
Fifth Harmony performs with Normani Kordei
Well, that was awesome! Normani named her most memorable year 2012, the time she joined Fifth Harmony after participating in the singing show The X Factor. In her performance (and the night opener!) with partner Val Chmerkovskiy, she was joined onstage by Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane, and Lauren Jauregui.

Nancy Kerrigan opens up about difficult miscarriages
Surprisingly, Nancy didn’t open up about her figure skating accident tonight but instead talked about an emotional personal experience: losing a baby.
“It was awful. You feel guilty, and [wonder] what you did wrong. It makes you feel like a failure. I had six miscarriages in eight years. It was really hard actually,” Nancy shared. “I almost felt shameful I think because I couldn’t do it on my own.”
The figure skater and her husband, Jerry Solomon — who married in September 1995 — are now parents to three kids, Matthew, 19, Brian, 11, and Nicole, 8.
After their emotional foxtrot, tough judge Len Goodman even gave Nancy and her pro partner, Artem Chigvintsev, a score of nine!
Maks Chmerkovskiy is still injured — and fans are starting to love Heather Morris and Alan Bersten together!
One fan wrote on Twitter, “At what point does Alan just become Heather’s partner? I mean I love Maks, but these two are awesome together.”
After their performance tonight, Maks grabbed the mic from host Tom Bergeron and said, “I just want to say I think Alan has proven his case more than enough for a pro maybe next year.” So sweet!
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold’s performance was played live at Wrigley Field
Fans of the Chicago Cubs came to watch baseball tonight, but instead got a glimpse of David and Lindsay’s touching dance on the big screen!

David’s former team — he retired after winning the World Series last year — honored him by playing his performance during the game’s rain delay — a moment that got David choked up. So cool!
The highest score of the season is given to Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater
Are those 10s we see?! The professional football player and his partner earned a nearly perfect score (and the highest yet this season!) after their emotional performance honoring Rashad’s special relationship with his father, who got his leg amputated after suffering a stroke.
Their contemporary dance to “Unconditionally” tugged on the heartstrings of the judges and the audience and also earned them a score of 39/40. Well done!
A lot of tears were shed during the episode!
In what is historically an emotional night, pros, celebs, and even judges couldn’t hold back their waterworks. We saw Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, Kym Johnson, Emma Slater, Davis Ross, Erin Andrews, Nancy Kerrigan, Simone Biles, and more of the show’s biggest faces cry… a lot!
SPOILER: Mr. T is eliminated!
After hosts Erin Andrews and Tom announced pairs Kym Johnson and Mr. T and Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko were in the bottom two, Mr. T and Kym sadly lost their chance of winning the Mirror Ball Trophy this season. “Thank you. I said I couldn’t dance but I’d try. It was a great experience, I enjoyed myself. Thank you,” he said before exiting the stage. We’ll miss you, Mr. T!
Mr. T and Kym.
