DWTS: All Celebrity ‘Horror Night’ Performances Ranked Based On The Scores

On Dancing With The Stars, it’s ‘Horror Night,’ and the celebrities went all out to show off their dark side.

Each performance was based on well-known horror films that audiences have come to enjoy (and fear). The task was not just to give a fantastic performance, but also to take on the personas of characters; who are renowned to make people’s skin crawl.

Some celebs seemed to go all out, others appeared to fall short. The pressure is clearly on now, as the competition becomes more difficult each week. Continue reading if you want to find out who came out on top and who ended up at the bottom!

JoJo Siwa & Pro Jenna Johnson

Score: 40/40

Inspired by the film ‘IT,’ JoJo Siwa and pro-Jenna Johnson danced jazz to District 78’s Anything Goes featuring Patrice Covington. The duo received a score of 40 out of 40, putting them in first place on the leaderboard. Siwa’s performance as Pennywise received her second flawless score of the season; and she went above and beyond in her portrayal of the character. Siwa even admitted that she is usually a sweet person; so being intimidating was a new experience for her — yet she felt perfectly at ease in the part.

Iman Shumpert & Pro Daniella Karagach

Score: 40/40

Iman Shumpert and pro-Daniella Karagach danced Contemporary to Luniz ft. Michael Marshall’s ‘I Got 5 On It (Tethered Mix from Us)’, which was inspired by Us. The Duo received a score of 40 out of 40, putting them in first place on the leaderboard. Shumpert and Karagach struggled at the outset of DWTS, but they appeared to have cracked the code after their Disney Villain’s Night performance.

Their ‘Horror Night’ performance featured strong lifts and acting, catapulting them to the top of the competition. Shumpert gives it his all in every performance, but this time; with the music, dance style, and motivation he chose, he appeared to be in his element.

Jimmie Allen & Pro Emma Slater

Score: 38/40

Jimmie Allen and pro-Emma Slater performed Contemporary to Daniel Jang’s Say Something, which was inspired by the film ‘A Quiet Place’. The duo came in second on the leaderboard with a score of 38 out of 40. Allen channelled all of his feelings as a dad during his role, which was crucial to the film’s plot. The two used sign language, resulting in an extremely emotional performance. Both Allen and Slater were moved to tears by the end.

Amanda Kloots and Pro Alan Bersten

Score 38/40

Inspired by ‘SAW’, Amanda Kloots and pro-Alan Besten danced the Argentine Tango to ‘Paint It, Black’ by Ciara. They came in second place on the scoreboard after securing 38 out of 40. Amanda seems to be struggling now to a time in perfect 10s as she had started off dominating the scoreboards. The judges praised her performance and it seemed to have disappointed them as they felt like the performance was “forced”.

Olivia Jade & Pro Val Chmerkovskiy

Score 36/40

Olivia Jade and Val Chmerkovskiy performed a Paso Doble to Mneskin’s ‘Beggin,’ which was inspired by The Purge. The duet came in third place with a score of 36 out of 40. Jade appears to have made a comeback, according to the judges; after earlier being in the bottom two. Her whole performance, however; appeared to be lacklustre, despite the fact that her ratings indicated otherwise.

Suni Lee & Pro Sasha Farber

Score: 36/40

Suni Lee and professional Sasha Farber performed the Tango to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Bad Habits,’ which was inspired by The Vampire Diaries. The duet came in third place with a score of 36 out of 40. Lee appears to have reached a stalemate; as the judges’ feedback does not go beyond encouraging her to ‘stay at it’ or to open up.

This week was no exception; Lee excels at the technical aspects of the game, she lacks the passion required to score 10s. Despite being a leader, Lee came in second place behind Kenya Moore. The judges, on the other hand, believed she had more to contribute and rescued her from being eliminated.

Cody Rigsby & Pro Cheryl Burke

Score: 36/40

Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke performed the Cha Cha to Kim Petras’ ‘There Will Be Blood,’ which was inspired by the film American Psycho. The duet came in third place with a score of 36 out of 40. Rigsby hasn’t had the opportunity to prove his value on the DWTS dancefloor due to the use of rehearsal footage and virtual performances.

This week, proved to be a watershed moment for him and Burke, as the two fully immersed themselves in their ‘American Psycho’ characters. Will they be able to maintain this level of energy and will it be sufficient to propel them forward?

The Miz & Pro Witney Carson

Score: 34/40

The Miz and pro-Witney Carson performed the Paso Doble to RAIGN’s ‘Wicked Games,’ which was inspired by the film Hellraiser. The duet came in fourth place with a score of 34 out of 40. It was not The Miz’s dancing as it is his portrayal of characters that have people enthralled. His performance of ‘Pinhead’ was spooky in a nice way, the competition is heating up. Characterization can only work for him for a certain amount of time.

Melora Hardin & Pro Artem Chigvintsev

Score: 34/40

Melora Hardin and pro-Artem Chigvintsev did the Jive to Elvis Presley’s ‘Hound Dog,’ which was inspired by Cujo. The duet came in fourth place with a score of 34 out of 40. Hardin’s dominance on the scoreboard had come to an end this week; and it seemed like a true fall from grace for him. The dancing itself was enjoyable, it appeared cheesy in comparison to other performances.

Kenya Moore & Pro Brandon Armstrong

Score: 32/40

Kenya Moore and pro-Brandon Armstrong performed an Argentine Tango to The Weeknd’s ‘Take My Breath,’ which was inspired by Arachnophobia. The duet came in fifth place with a score of 32 out of 40. Moore has frequently received acclaim from the judges, but it has rarely translated into high ratings; resulting in her being relegated to the bottom once more.

When it came down to it, the judges chose to save Suni Lee over her, despite the fact that she was at the bottom. While fans were understandably furious, given Moore’s track record; it appears that there may be more to the tale now that ‘RHOA’ is back in production.

Who do you believe should be at the top of the standings? Should Kenya Moore have been spared the chopping block? Let us know what you think in the comments section below! Season 30 of Dancing With The Stars premieres on ABC on Monday at 8/7c. The episodes are available to watch on ABC.com and Hulu.
