By far my favorite night on DANCING WITH THE STARS is “The Most Memorable Year” night. Filled with emotion and honesty, it’s the night where we truly get to see the contestants for who they really are and where they came from, whether it be twenty years ago or, in the case of Mr. T, sixty four years ago. Sadly, Mr. T ended his run on DWTS tonight, along with his partner Kym Herjavec, but, oh what a run it was indeed. We saw a vulnerability in him that few have ever seen which is what the show demonstrates so well, a truthfulness and honesty in bearing your soul to the world. Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater epitomized that in their beautiful Contemporary that scored them an “almost” perfect score, thanks to Len Goodman. Heather Morris and her fill in partner, while Maks Chmerkovskiy is still on the mend, Alan Bersten came in third with 35 points while Simone Biles & Sasha Farber ended the night in second with 36 points. Stay tuned, next week is Disney night.
