The second week of Dancing With The Stars: Juniors brought nostalgia and adorably improved performances to the ballroom, but for one couple it would mean the end of the road.
Before we get to the results, we’ve got to talk about the new favorite that looks likely to make the finals. Ariana Greenblatt and Artyon Celestine’s jive to Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” was easily the best performance of the night. You could see the genuine chemistry and fun the pair have together. Last week I said it looked like Miles Brown could take it. But now? Ariana has a real shot.
Judges Score: 24 out of 30
Scottie Pippen’s daughter, Sophia, and her partner Jake Monreal might not have gotten the lowest score of the night but they were the worst couple in my opinion. And remember, we’ve got Honey Boo Boo in this competition! The pair danced the Foxtrot to “Love Story” by Taylor Swift. Unlike Ariana, Sophia looked uncomfortable dancing with Jake and just awkward. In fact, it looks like she doesn’t even want to be there at all.
Judges Score: 20 out of 30
After a night of dancing, the studio audience took out their keypads and voted for their favorite couple. Hosts Jordan Fisher and Frankie Muniz then revealed that General Hospital star Hudson West and his partner Kameron Couch would be the third couple to be eliminated from the competition.
Mentored by Hayley Erbert, the pair were eliminated following their Paso Doble to “Four Minutes” by Justin Timberlake, Madonna, and Timbaland, which received a 22 out of 30 from the judges.
Did the right couple go home? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
