Dubbed as “Most Memorable Year Night,” Monday’s episode of the reality dance competition featured Terrell Owens dedicating his performance to his late grandmother.

Their performance had the classic footwork routine of the dance, along with wide arm movements.

Meanwhile, Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd also danced a contemporary act to “Falling Slowly” by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. He recalled his broken family and told about growing up with divorced parents. But this did not let him down and learned from this lesson to raise his own family.

The highlight of their performance was her stunning dress with colors of white, black and purple.
