Once again, the Dancing With the Stars: Juniors kids have melted our hearts!

In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, the celebrity contestants and their pro partners took the stage for "Giving Thanks Night" on Sunday, in which they all dedicated a dance to those who have inspired them.

Unfortunately, at the end of the night, one dance duo still went home -- Akash Vukoti & Kamri Peterson, mentored by Witney Carson -- leaving only five couples left.

Here's what judges Val Chmerkovskiy, Mandy Moore and Adam Rippon thought of their performances.
