It was a whole lotta gyrating in two hours tonight on DANCING WITH THE STARS. First, it was Icon night where the duos danced tributary dances to their idols. Then, whomever scored the highest of those dances won three points and immunity from not only elimination but from a dance off in the show’s second hour. Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess slammed the competition getting the only perfect score of the night, essentially giving them a stress free second half of the show. Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson won their dance-off which landed them in second place for the night. Tamar Braxton & Val Chmerkovskiy and Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough tied for third with 28 points, although neither won their dance off. Alexa Vega & Mark Ballas earned 27 points, landing in third place. And Alek Skarlatos & Lindsey Arnold ended the night with 25. Andy Grammer & Allison Holker were booted from the competition, despite winning their toe to toe dance off with Skarlatos & Arnold. Stay tuned.
