'Dancing With The Stars' just moves us to tears.
It's no surprise that Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough landed full marks on 'Dancing With The Stars' last week. It was 'Famous Dances Night' and, while they may have gone for the obvious option, their 'Dirty Dancing' inspired performance was utterly mesmerizing. But what can we expect from this Sunday's Halloween Night?
Bindi Irwin smashed it with her 'Dirty Dancing' routine
Bindi is best known for being the daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, and for presenting the Discovery Kids show 'Bindi the Jungle Girl'. She's been a favourite to win for the whole competition, having come out on top (or drawn) in three different nights, and now the talented Bindi has managed to land a full forty marks for her memorable 'Dirty Dancing' routine with Derek Hough. They absolutely smashed their way through '(I've Had) The Time of My Life', right from the very beginning when Derek declared 'Nobody puts Bindi in a corner!' in reference to the 1987 movie.
Three couples danced their way to perfect scores on last night’s edition of ‘Dancing With The Stars’.
The competitors on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ recreated some of the most iconic dances last night (Monday October 19th) as three couples gained a perfect score and one pairing was sent home packing.
