Dancing With the Stars‘ remaining 15 couples slipped on their blue suede dancin’ shoes for Monday’s episode, which honored the songs of Elvis Presley.
The competition series’ tribute to the King of Rock and Roll was divided into three acts, chronicling his early music career, his Hollywood era and, finally, his Vegas years. The homage came about three months after the Austin Butler-led biopic Elvis was first released, and one might think this would give Disney+ the opportunity to plug a film that’s now streaming on its platform… but alas, Elvis is instead streaming on HBO Max, which made Monday’s theme a bit more curious.
Meanwhile, Joseph Baena and Daniella Karagach’s partnership got all shook up this week after Daniella tested positive for COVID ahead of the show. In her absence, newbie troupe member — and reigning So You Think You Can Dance champion — Alexis Warr filled in for Joseph’s Viennese waltz, successfully avoiding a live-TV catastrophe.
How did Joseph fare with his new partner? Who improved their week-over-week score by double digits? And which celebrity followed Jason Lewis out of the competition?
