Dancing With the Stars Season 25 Episode 7 Review

It's time for Movie Night on Dancing With the Stars! And I can't wait, because Shania Twain is guest judging! I can sense that Life's About To Get Good. Because the first person when you think of movies and dancing is Shania Twain. I know, that joke didn't impress you much. Now without further ado, let's start 'Up!' this review because Man, I Feel Like Watching Dancing!

Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas - 
This was absolutely flawless! It's the best dance of the season for me. I just adored it. It was so creative and well done. Lindsey finally got that perfect score that she's deserved for awhile, and I'm very happy.
My Score: 10

Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson -
This was far from flawless, and Frankie definitely knew it. He messed up a few times, and it just wasn't his best dance in any way. However, it gave me so much joy to watch that I can forgive some of those mistakes. (But not all of them.)
My Score: 8

Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd -
This was... fine. Not Nick's best dance, and not even close to being the best of the night. However, it was decent. It was enjoyable to watch, and I liked it from a non-technical standpoint. But can anyone explain to me how this was even remotely Western?
My Score: 7

Vanessa Lachey and Maks Chmerkovskiy - 
This was easily Vanessa's best dance. After a few middle-of-the-pack weeks, Vanessa came back strong with this amazing Quickstep. I was very pleasantly surprised by just how good this dance was, and I'm glad that she got her highest score for it.
My Score: 10

Drew Scott and Emma Slater -
This was kind of a mess, but it was a fun mess. I enjoyed it, but it was a huge step down for Drew's dance last week. Well, it is what it is.
My Score: 7

Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke -
This was just so fun. It really exuded the spy theme, better than anyone else tonight. It was just great to watch, and it made me happy to watch. Also, I'd totally watch a spy movie starring T.O. All in all, his best dance by far and one of the night's best as well.
My Score: 10

Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy -
This was a pretty good dance, but it wasn't even close to being Victoria's best. It was an untraditional Paso Doble, but it was enjoyable enough. I hope
My Score: 8

Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev -
This was really, really good. Nikki started as an okay-not-great dancer and had some meh dances, but she's really flourished in recent weeks. This was her best dance so far, and it was a great way to start off the night. I'm looking forward to more dances from her and her continued improvement.
My Score: 9

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold -
What more can really be said about Jordan? Of course this was great, he hasn't had a dance that wasn't. It was a really solid dance once again. Also, I don't know what the heck Len is talking about or why he gave Jordan a nine, but maybe his eyes need to be checked?
My Score: 10

Dancers of the Night: Lindsey & Mark
Honorable Mention: Jordan & Lindsay

Worst of the Night: Nick & Peta
(Dis)Honorable Mention: Drew & Emma

Rankings for the Week:

This was a good episode, and I really enjoyed seeing Shania Twain as a guest judge. Unfortunately, the theme was really weak this week. Other than Terrell and Lindsey's dances, I really didn't get "Night at the Movies" from any of these dances. A night dancing to iconic songs from movies would have been better.
My Score: 9/10
My Grade: A-
