The contestants were asked to re-do one of their dances from earlier in the season, and Riker chose to once again take on the persona of Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, just like he did on DWTS’ Disney night. Only this time, he blew the judges away and got perfect scores across the board. Len even stood and applauded!
Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy Brilliantly Redo Their Foxtrot
Rumer and Val decided to recreate their dance from the first week of competition, and while it was clear, even back then, that Rumer had what it took to be a real competitor, all that she’s learned was on full display in this breathtaking performance.
Rumer’s first dance of the night was so beautiful that it even had her father, action star Bruce Willis, teary-eyed. That is an incredible testament to the dance’s emotional impact.
Noah Galloway Makes Everyone Cry
While Noah and Sharna might have hit a stumbling block in their first dance, their second made everyone forget everything else that happened. It was a stunning, emotional free-style that told a metaphoric version of Noah’s struggle since being injured in the war. And his strong yet vulnerable performance -- which included one of the most amazing lifts and holds ever -- secured him a perfect 40.
Riker and Allison’s second dance of the night somehow managed to top the energy and enthusiasm of Riker’s Captain Jack number. It started off with a 1920s style until Riker managed to infuse some modern flair. And he sure knows how to make a sparkling white tuxedo work for him.
