Beloved star returns home – DEADLINE

well now this FUN: Guest host Billy Porter opened Week 8 by performing “How Will I Know” to kick off Whitney Houston’s night. a road Better opening than some of those silly skits from weeks and years ago! Porter even had the opportunity to explain his role the night before the competition began: “I’ll be looking for storytelling. I’ll be looking for connection and I’ll be looking for intent.”

It was not said but was certainly implied: Be good in Mrs. Houston’s memory, all!

Reality TV star Harry Josie (Too hot to handle) with partner Riley Arnold. Arnold’s shoulders covered in bandages (for unknown reasons) were a bit of a distraction during the training package, as Jowsey talked about being an ordinary Joe who can’t dance licking a plum. Then Arnold took him to a ballet class which made no difference at all to the Viennese Waltz (performed to Houston’s “I’ve Got Nothing”). Josie looked good in his powder blue velvet suit. “It has grown exponentially,” Porter said. “It’s about telling stories. The seduction was about five o’clock. I need to see it at ten.” a result: 28 out of 40

Actor Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch) with partner Beta Murgatroyd. Peta makes this partnership look great, but Williams can only hide behind her talent and beauty for so long. He needs to know he’s living on borrowed time, so just raising his arms and swinging his hips to “Didn’t We Almost Get It All” doesn’t count as a rumba, man. But the judges were nice. “You captured the heart of America,” Judge Derek Hough said. “The way you used your arms. There were a few things here and there, but the rumba is great, Barry.” a result: 32 out of 40

Singer-songwriter Jason Mraz with his partner Daniela Karajac. The duo were tasked with dancing to “Higher Love” — a song Mraz says is similar to his tune “I’m Yours.” The singer acted as if he had two left feet in training but brought a lot of confidence to his samba, not withstanding the chaotic ball change. He was clearly having the time of his life, but Porter hated the way he pronounced the words during the entire performance. seriously, so what? but whatever. Porter: “It’s distracting. Save that for when you’re on Broadway because you’re singing at the same time.” a result: 33 out of 40

Lawson Charitable Foundation (And the bachelorette) with partner Artem Chigvintsev. The reality star smiled big as the music picked up. She was clearly drawn in the moment, dancing a Viennese waltz in her sparkling, crystal-encrusted dress to the tune of “I Will Always Love You.” Simply wonderful.

Josie and Arnold were louder and more dramatic in their movements, but as Hough said, Hannigan “had a leg up.” Oh, and Porter described Josie as a tree trunk for Arnold to dance around. lovable.

As host Alfonso Ribeiro said, it was a “battle of the giants.” “That was really good and exciting to watch,” Inaba said. “You were both competitive but one of you was a little more competitive. I really loved seeing that. It was like the eye of the tiger. You’re both amazing.” winner: Lawson.

The bottom three were Williams, Mraz and Lawson. But it’s time for Williams to go. He broke up with talking to Ribeiro and Julianne Hough.
