The dancers on Dancing with the Stars made the ballroom look fancy.
“Bond Night” was the first night of week two of season 31. The celebrities and their professional partners acted out their favorite scenes from the James Bond movies.
The show started with a clip of judge Derek Hough, who was playing James Bond, running around the DWTS set while wearing a mask. He ran into fellow judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli, as well as co-host Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro, before making his big entrance through the roof.
Alfonso told the audience before the cast introductions that the night would be full of “hot and seductive routines.”
At the end of the night, Charli D’Amelio, Wayne Brady, and Gabby Windey all won. For the second week in a row, they were all tied at the top of the leaderboard.
In her introduction video, the TikTok star said it felt “great to be at the top of the leaderboard” after last week’s “Elvis Week” performance, but she also said she could “have done better” on some things.
This week, Mark told her to focus on her feet and how they connect for this week’s rumba to “No Time to Die” by Billie Eilish. Charli said that this week’s dance would be hard because she has “never tried to be romantic or anything.”
Her boyfriend, Landon Barker, as well as Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian, were in the audience to cheer her on.
Charli told Charli after their dance that he was “shaken, stirred, and smitten with you,” while Carrie Ann told her that for their next dance, she should dance more outward. They scored the season’s first nine goals.
Cheryl and Louis were in the bottom two last week and were saved by the judges. This week, they were back on the dance floor to dance the rumba to Shirley Bassey’s “Diamonds Are Forever.”
Cheryl told Len in the intro package that she wanted to show him that he “made the right choice” by saving her.
She said as she got ready for the dance, “I want to be the Bond girl, but I never get to be.”
Derek said that it was her “best dance” so far, and Bruno said, “You got your sparkle back.” “My love, you put it back together.”Len showed his support again when he said, “I’m so glad I saved you.” Once you started dancing, it was a lot of fun.
Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater
In the opening package, the TV actor who is best known for his work on 90210 takes Emma surfing for the first time. Emma said of him after he overcame his fear of dancing and she overcame her fear of the ocean: “He is a real-life James Bond.”
They danced a lively tango to Chris Cornell’s “You Know My Name.” Britt told Daniel in the introduction video that it was “crucial” for him to “bring your acting skills to this.”
When he had trouble feeling the music, she told him, “Don’t let your frustration get in the way of what you can do.” After dancing the rumba to “The World Is Not Enough” by Garbage, the couple got a lot of cheers.
Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart
Len told Daniel that he was in charge of that dance because Daniel was leading it. You were in charge of everything.
Jordin said in her intro package that she wanted to “get better every week.”
She said that the song “Licence to Kill” meant a lot to her because she sang it with Gladys Knight on the American Idol finale.
Bruno said after the show, “I couldn’t wait for you to show me your rumba from the first time I saw you, and I wasn’t let down.” Leno also said that he liked the dance’s “control,” but that Jordin needed to work on her turns.
In the intro package, Sam talked about being gay and how he had not talked to his father for two years. His father told him that he was proud of the man he had become before he died.
Sam said he was happy that he was “living his truth.” “Los Muertos Vivos Estan” by Thomas Newman ft. The music of Tambuco was used for their samba.
Carrie Ann said she wanted “more intensity” in the dance, and Robin Roberts was there to cheer him on.
After last week’s performance, Selma and Sasha worked to help her get over her “sensory overload.”
They decided to have her dance to “For Your Eyes Only” by Sheena Easton while wearing a blindfold to block out the lights and cameras. After the dance, Carrie Ann said that they had a “palpable connection.”
Selma said that singing with a blindfold on was “a gift” and that it could be “quite disorienting,” but she still loved it.
