Season 32 of Dancing With The Stars continues tonight with Disney 100 Night! 11 couples remain, one pair will leave the competition after YOUR votes.

DWTS 32 Spoilers: Disney 100 Night Dance Styles, Song Choices (Week 4)

Pro dancers will perform an opening number to “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from Encanto, choreographed by Christopher Scott, with partner dances including Contemporary, Paso Doble, Jazz, Quickstep, Viennese Waltz or Waltz.

Vote live during the show at dwtsvote.abc.com or text FIRST NAME to 21523.

The show begins with an In Memoriam card for former DWTS contestant, Suzanne Somers who passed away from breast cancer over the weekend.

This opening to the opening number is so obviously a Hyundai car commercial. Kind of annoying! After Minnie and Mickey Mouse join Alfonso and Julieanne on stage, here comes the filler. It’s a video package overview of Disney’s 100 year history. It’s heresy, but I’m not nor ever have been a Disney fan.

Mauricio Umansky & Emma Slater – Paso Doble – The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Fantasia.

Mauricio got his first 7 last week. Emma is working extra hard on Maricio’s frame, which Derek suggested needed work. His costume, dressed as Mickey the Sorcerer is too silly for a Paso. He’s still a little stiff

Derek calls it “really fantastic” and “matadorable.” Bruno says Mauricio “polished the dancefloor to perfection” but needs to fill the space a little more. Carrie Ann says he did “amazing.” She’s proud of him. She felt the dance got better and better as he performed.

Carrie Ann -7 Derek – 6 Bruno – 6 = 19 out of 30

Mira Sorvino & Gleb Savchenko – Waltz – A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes from Cinderella

Last week Carrie Ann criticized Mira’s ability to embody the character she was playing, which is a pretty big aimed at an Oscar winning actress. Mira admits the criticism surprised her. Gleb is trying to break the pair from the middle of the pack. She studied ballet, so the waltz should be easier for her than say, Latin dances. The choreography is not particularly challenging, but it is pretty.

Bruno says, “You are the belle of the ball–elegant, soft. He says Ballroom suits her, adding “Trust yourself and trust your partner.” Carrie Ann says she gave “queen energy” and was elegant and sure footed. Derek felt the style suited her. “Clean, classic, carefree.”

Mira is wearing a wrist brace. She slipped after rehearsal yesterday. It might be fractured! She hopes that it’s only a sprain.

Carrie Ann -7 Derek – 7 Bruno – 7 = 21 out of 30

Barry Williams & Peta Murgatroyd – Jazz – He’s a Tramp from Lady and the Tramp

Barry got his first 7 last week. Back in the 70’s Barry auditioned for the Broadway musical Pippin. Bob Fosse hired him to play the lead role! He has experience with Jazz, which fits Barry’s hammy style. He’s in his late 60s, so not as smooth as he could be. Whoops. He missed Peta’s hand and screwed up a lift.

Carrie Ann calls it his best dance so far, despite the mistakes. “You carry yourself with so much charm.” Derek calls him “Barry Sinatra.” He hopes he’s better next week. Bruno thought it started ok, but then he had timing issues, etc.

Carrie Ann -6 Derek – 6 Bruno – 6 = 18 out of 30

Jason Mraz & Daniella Karagach – Foxtrot – A Whole New World from Aladdin

Jason tied for high score two weeks in a row. He dances ballroom for the first time and is an appealing and charismatic presence on the dance floor. Hm. A few bobbles. Unlike say the Jive, which is a freeing dance. He seemed uncomfortable being contained.

Derek calls it a “whole new Jason.” He suggests he use his legs a little more. Bruno compliments his poise and regality. Carrie Ann noted he didn’t always seem comfortable. But she appreciates how he follows through on his movements.

Carrie Ann -8 Derek – 8 Bruno – 8 = 24 out of 30

Lele Pons & Brandon Armstrong – Rumba – Can You Feel the Love Tonight from The Lion King

Lele made mistakes last week, and she feels like she let herself down. She knows she’s being hard on herself. The dance is nicely choreographed, especially the spin. A sexy and elegant routine from Lele and Brandon!

Bruno begins stripping off his jacket, he’s so excited. “You corrected everything I told you!” He calls it “sensual and sophisticated.” Carrie Ann agrees. “I love that you are taking the corrections.” Derek says, only, “well done” after Carrie Ann took his time away to yell at the couple about a lift. Derek says he’ll share with them after the show. He seems annoyed.

Carrie Ann -7 Derek – 7 Bruno – 8 = 22 out of 30

Alyson Hannigan & Sasha Farber – Jazz – Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast

Alyson was very ill last week. But she’s back! Former contestant, Selma Blair comes to visit Alyson’s rehearsal. It’s a nice surprise. She puts her acting skills to work. Absolutely charming, even if Alyson is still not a natural dancer.

Carrie Ann calls her the cutest candelabra. She thought some of the musicality was missing. Derek thought it lacked content, but her personality made up for it. Bruno calls it a “feast of fun.” He also points out the lack of musicality. The crowd boos.

Carrie Ann -6 Derek – 6 Bruno – 6 = 18 out of 30

Harry Jowsey & Rylee Arnold – Quickstep – You’ve Got a Friend In Me from Toy Story

A friend of Harry’s passed away from suicide a few years ago. He’s dedicating the song to him. Ryley says Harry has become her “best friend.” aka dating, say the rumors. Harry seems like the nicest guy, but has no rhythm. This quickstep, however, isn’t bad. He looks like he’s having fun.

Derek says, “There’s a new prince Harry in town.” He loved it. Bruno thought he seemed more relaxed this time. Still off-time, but much better. Carrie calls him joyous and comfortable. Julieanne calls the couple “two lovebirds.” She asks Harry what he likes about Ryley and his answer is very sweet. He says, “She’s just so sweet and understanding and patient with me.” He added, “Because this is not easy. She’s just beautiful and amazing.” At that Ryley literally swooned. He becomes choked up thinking about his friend who passed away.

Carrie Ann -7 Derek – 7 Bruno – 7 = 21 out of 30

Xochitl Gomez & Val Chmerkovskiy – Paso Doble to Un Poco Loco from Coco

This rehearsal package? Also a car commercial. Yeesh. But as far as the routine on the dance floor is concerned, it’s another fresh, fun routine from Xochitl. She’s a naturally gifted dancer.

Bruno compliments her “pure paso doble” and is impressed that she never lost control, even while staying in character. “That was unbelievable,” says Carrie Ann. “You in your power…but in such a light way.” Derek says, “You were an artist out there…a beautiful paso doble.”

Carrie Ann -9 Derek – 9 Bruno – 9 = 27 out of 30

Adrian Peterson & Britt Stewart – Viennese Waltz – Baby Mine from Dumbo

Adrian received low scores last week. Britt is trying to help him dance with less muscle and more elegance. He’s stiff and awkward in his movements. Maybe this will finally be Adrian’s week to go. Ironic the song is tender ode to parental love.

Carrie Ann called it the most “touching dance of the night.” She calls it truly beautiful. Derek gives him an ovation. He calls it smooth and graceful. Bruno says he found his wings and he took flight. True, it could have been clunkier. But it wasn’t great. Oh. Is that murmuring from the audience as he talks about his newborn daughter? (In case you didn’t know READ THIS)

Carrie Ann -7 Derek – 7 Bruno – 7 = 21 out of 30

Ariana Madix & Pasha Pashkov – Contemporary – Into the Unknown from Frozen II

Ariana is nervous not being in a traditional dance hold. Female reality and social media stars are often ex cheerleaders and studied dance. She was nervous, but didn’t need to be.

Derek calls it “sensational.” He loved the way she worked the camera. “There was nothing frozen about that,” says Bruno. “I love your determination to succeed.” Carrie Ann says, “You brought the story to life.” She wanted to see more freedom in her movements.

Carrie Ann -8 Derek – 9 Bruno – 8 = 25 out of 30

Charity Lawson & Artem Chigvintsev – Waltz – Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid

Charity hopes to inspire girls at home who “look like me.” She’s referring to the reboot of “Little Mermaid” featuring Black actress, Halle Bailey. It’s a beautifully choreographed dance. Graceful. lovely and elegant.

Bruno calls it a “fitting finale.” Carrie Ann didn’t have any criticism, but felt she served as a wonderful role model. Derek calls Charity reliable and beautiful. “That was just magnificent.”

Carrie Ann -8 Derek – 8 Bruno – 8 = 24 out of 30
