'DWTS' Disney Night: Melora Hardin gets first 10, fans say 'so well deserved!'
Dressed as Mother Gothel, we saw Melora put her acting chops to use in a wonderfully theatrical routine in 'Dancing With the Stars'
ABC's beloved dance competition 'Dancing With the Stars' brought Disney to its stage for a wholesome Disney Night and it was enthralling! Fans and contestants both loved the drama of the costume and songs from their all-time favorite Disney movies as various characters were brought to life in the ballroom.
One of the contestants is well-renowned actress Melora Hardin who along with her partner Artem Chigvintsev has been putting on fabulous performances recently. Last night's show saw her among the top scorers with a 36 out of 40. For villain night, Hardin and Chigvintsev danced the Jazz to 'Mother Knows Best' from 'Tangled'. Dressed as Mother Gothel, we saw Melora put her acting chops to use in a wonderfully theatrical routine. Heres' what the judges and fans thought of her performance.
Melora Hardin and Artem Chigvintsev gave a delightful performance. What was even more stunning was that she had sung the song herself! Judge Carrie Ann loved how theatrical Melora was, but she commented that it was a hair safe, giving her a 9. Judge Len expressed his disagreement saying the performance had wit, it had charm, and that it was truly delightful. In quite a surprising move he scored them a brilliant 10, making it the first 10 of the season. Judge Derek told Melora the performance was an absolute clinic in storytelling, scoring her a 9. Judge Bruno who also thoroughly enjoyed Hardin's dance scored her a 9. The high scores gave her a total of 37 out of 40 with the grand total adding up to a magnificent 73 out of 80. She stands at the top of the leader board and survived the double elimination. Here' how fans reacted.
