Two more couples have left the dance floor on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.”
SPOILER ALERT: The contest announced that Kim Fields, Von Miller and Wanya Morris were in jeopardy.
Actress Fields and NFL star Miller were out. Singer Morris is one of the best dancers, so his ejection would have been a shocker.
In departing, Fields said she was grateful for the opportunity and praised partner Sasha Farber. Miller said there were many good dancers and thanked partner Witney Carson.
In the dance portion, two celebrities scored perfect judges’ scores, the first handed out this season.
Ginger Zee of “Good Morning America” and Val Chmerkovskiy were in top form on a gorgeous Viennese waltz performed to Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing.” Bruno Tonioli said it was impeccable and her best dance yet. Zee collected 30 points, the first perfect score of the season.
The second perfect score went to Paige VanZant. She and Mark Ballas offered energy, fun and cartwheels on a lively jive performed to Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.” Len Goodman praised her control, and Carrie Ann Inaba liked the way she channeled Turner.
Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd collaborated on a beautiful foxtrot set to “Beautiful Day” by U2. Tonioli praised the dance’s turns and lyricism. Goodman wanted better posture, but Inaba said the dance was elegant. Points: 28 points.
Odd camerawork detracted from Morris’ pleasant foxtrot to Aretha Franklin’s version of “I Say a Little Prayer.” Good but not great, Inaba said. Goodman liked the joyful style but not Morris’ posture. Points: 27.
Jodie Sweetin looked confident, happy and elegant on a quickstep set to “For Once in My Life.” Goodman praised the energy, and Tonioli liked the freedom of movement. Points: 26.
Antonio Brown looked all business on a tango set to “Paint It Black” by the Rolling Stones. Tonioli praised the dramatic attitude but wanted better technique, and Goodman saw mistakes. Points: 24.
The group dances pitted the men against the women. The men showed teamwork on a salute to James Brown; Morris and DiMarco were the standouts. The women’s tribute to Beyonce was far more ragged.
“Dancing” names its winner in three weeks. Sweetin and Brown seem the most vulnerable when the next ejection is announced.
