This was a night of Disney fun with film soundtracks of its famous songs, magical effects, and lovable characters. Couples danced to either “Mary Poppins,” “Aladdin,” “Cinderella,” and of course “Frozen” on Monday night’s “Dancing with the Stars.” James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd received the first perfect score of 40 for the season.
Earlier Len Goodman gave his first 10 to Charlie White and Sharna Burgess. Charlie dropped his cane during “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from “Mary Poppins.”
Amy Purdy was picture perfect as “Cinderella” and Derek Hough as Prince Charming. Derek’s brilliant choreography helped with Amy’s difficult challenges in the waltz. Guest judge Donny Osmond, the singing voice of Disney’s “Mulan” as Captain Shang, gave Amy and Derek their first 10.
Donny and his brothers were discovered by Walt Disney. He was also Season 9's "Dancing with the Stars" champion.
It would not be a proper Disney theme night without its current mega-hit song “Let It Go” from “Frozen.” James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd had the honors of dancing contemporary to Idina Menzel’s version, instead of the Ray Chew band vocalist.
Peta looked stunning as Elsa and James was the perfect gentleman. The special animated crystallized effects were beautiful to see on the dance floor.
Coming in second place were Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy dancing the quickstep to "Be Our Guest" from "Beauty and the Beast." Danica was the epitome of Belle in her bright yellow gown. Val was the smashing Gaston.
In a surprising elimination it was Cody Simpson who was sent packing. He and Witney Carson danced to the “Lion King's,” “I Just Can't Wait to be King.” Donny Osmond said he wasn’t having fun on the dance floor. Disney is all about fun, no matter the situation. Cody’s tween fan base booed Donny’s comment, and would not stop booing when he was eliminated.
