Issues heated up final night time on “Dancing with the Stars.” And, no, the air-conditioning on set didn’t break—it was Latin Night time, and all the stars and the professionals introduced their hottest, spiciest finest to the ballroom.

In fact, the “DWTS” drama additionally heated up. Is it simply us, or has this season been—say it with us—essentially the most dramatic season but? We noticed the uncertainty surrounding the impression of the WGA strike and the departure of former co-host Tyra Banks, and that was all earlier than the season even began!

Final week, we additionally noticed a brutal first-week elimination of comic Matt Walsh and companion Koko Iwasaki, after their cha-cha didn’t impress the judges.

Ariana Madix and Pasha Pashkov: Samba

We definitely don’t envy any couple assigned a samba in week two of the competitors, as a result of with the samba, naturally, comes the samba roll—one of many trickiest expertise a brand new Latin dancer can be taught. However with the assistance of professional Pasha, reality-star Ariana rocked the roll and her entire routine. She even bought a shout-out from decide Derek Hough, who mentioned, “Out of the gate, very impressed with that samba roll.”

Ariana and Pasha’s efficiency was samba objectives. It was attractive, sultry, and, most of all, enjoyable. It would solely be week two, however Ariana was clearly having the time of her life on the market on the dance ground, and we had the time of our life watching her carry out. She acquired a 20 out of 30, and made it by means of to subsequent week’s present.

Charity Lawson and Ezra Sosa: Cha-Cha

With Artem in quarantine, the previous Bachelorette was joined by our fave (and former Dance Spirit cowl star!), Ezra Sosa. And it’s a credit score to each Charity and Ezra that with out following the celebs on social, you may not have identified that Ezra was a stand-in. The pair seemed fully assured and comfy collectively. One more argument for Ezra to be promoted subsequent season. Are you able to hear us, “DWTS” manufacturing group?

Charity’s efficiency was technical and sleek, and she or he introduced the Latin Night time vitality we had been all in search of. (We’re fairly positive we noticed a sassy wink or two—okay, Charity!) The judges cherished the content material of the efficiency however mentioned her motion was somewhat tight, one thing they’re hoping to see remedied in subsequent week’s dance. She acquired a 21 out of 30, and was voted protected for the night.

Jason Mraz and Daniella Karagach: Rumba

Whew. We had been sweating somewhat watching Jason and Daniella’s rumba. And never simply because the routine seemed impressively troublesome—the singer and his companion introduced the warmth to the ballroom with a steamy efficiency final night time.

Specifically, Jason turned up the temperature together with his rumba approach. Up to now, we’ve usually seen male opponents battle with the motion of the rumba. In any case, these hips don’t lie! However with Daniella’s assist, Jason aced the efficiency, incomes a standing ovation from the viewers and a 24 out of 30, one of many highest scores of the night time.

Sadly, the top of the night time introduced our second elimination. With Adrian Peterson and Jamie Lynn Spears in jeopardy, the judges selected to avoid wasting Peterson and companion Britt Stewart. The couple will get to affix the remainder of the solid to mosey on over to Motown for subsequent week’s present.
