DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 25 – Movie Night had drama, science fiction and animation but no genre could save Nick Lachey & Peta Murgatroyd from being swept up off the cutting room floor. Tonight, we said goodbye to Lachey & Murgatroyd as Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas up’ed their game yet again, achieving a perfect 40 score for the night. On their heels is Jordan Fisher & the other Lindsey, Arnold that is, with 39 points. At the bottom is Drew Scott & Emma Slater with just 30 points. Sitting in for the show as a guest judge was Shania Twain who is a wonderful singer but not so great judge. Sorry, not every entertainer is a good critic. She fumbled and tripped on her words more than Lachey did on his feet all season. Still, next week are the team dances, eight are left. Stay tuned.
