"#Dancing With The Stars" fans watched as "The Bachelor" #Nick Viall and his partner Peta Murgatroyd found out they were in jeopardy during Monday night's competition. The reality star, who danced a "Pinocchio" inspired routine as a part of the show's big Disney Night, learned that was in jeopardy just minutes before he was set to perform his routine with Peta.
However, Nick didn't let the fact that he was in jeopardy get him down. "The Bachelor" star took to the stage and performed his best dance of the season to the classing Disney song, "I've Got No Strings." Nick earned his highest scores to date, earning two eights and two nines from the "DWTS" judges..
Nick Viall survives 'Dancing With The Stars' week five elimination
After Monday night's performances, Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd stood alongside two other contestants who were in jeopardy — Erika Jane and Normani Kordei.
Normani and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy were the first of the three to learn that they were safe and would be returning next week to dance again. By this time, Nick Viall's face revealed how nervous he was knowing that he had a 50-50 chance of being eliminated from "Dancing With The Stars."
However, votes from his fans and his scores from last week saved him. Viall and Murgatroyd were safe and will return to dance next week. "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, #Erika Jayne, and her partner, Gleb Savchenko were eliminated from the competition..
Although "Dancing With The Stars" fans said goodbye to Erika Jane on Monday night, the Disney-themed show was a huge success. Many of the stars earned high scores and gave some very memorable performances.
Normani and Simone impress the judges
The judges, including hard-headed Len Goodman, seemed to be in a good mood, giving out nines and tens to many of the contestants. Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei earned the night's top scores with her "Mulan" inspired Paso Doble, one that judge Julianne Hough called "brilliant." However, it was Simone Biles who stole the show in the night's final dance. She danced to the theme song from Disney's "Moana," and everyone in the audience was cheering for the Olympic gold medalist.
Sadly, some fan favorites earned less than desirable scores from the judges on Disney Night. NFL star Rashad Jennings, who earned multiple tens during last week's episode of "Dancing With The Stars," as well as rodeo cowboy Bonner Bolton didn't do quite as they did in previous weeks. However, it was former Chicago Cubs catcher David Ross who earned the lowest score of the night, scoring only 29/40.
Watch "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
