It has been a wild ride on the debut season of ABC's hit reality show, 'Dancing with the Stars: Juniors', with lots of debates between fans on social media, regarding the eliminations so far. And while fans were still dealing with the last round, that saw Alana Honey Boo Boo Thompson go home, this week, they received yet another shock with the show not airing at all.

For those unaware, the competition between the kid stars took a week off from airing and postponed its episode 5 to be aired Sunday, November 11, as opposed to its expected November 4 schedule. And worry not, there's a perfectly reasonable excuse behind this.

The reality competition series took a week off due to the special broadcast of “Mickey’s 90th Spectacular,” which aired in its place Sunday, November 4, at 8 p.m. EST instead. As ABC had already announced, the spectacular special was a two-hour event, paying tribute to the iconic Disney character, Mickey Mouse, 90 years after his first appearance in “Steamboat Willie” on November 18, 1928.



 

The event featured some stellar appearances by Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Kelsea Ballerini, Luis Fonsi, Tori Kelly, Miles Brown, Josh Gad, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Sage Steele. Even original “Mickey Mouse Club” stars, Bob Burgess, and Sharon Baird were part of the festive occasion!

As for 'DWTS: Juniors', we mentioned earlier the shocking Honey Boo Boo's elimination and almost a week after the episode, fans are still not over it. It was sure sad to see the 'Toddlers and Tiaras' star leave the dance floor with her show-partner, Tristan Ianiero, especially after she spoke at length about how glad she is to have seen the improvement in her dancing skills.

"I've changed a lot. I can call myself a dancer now, and I never thought I could call myself a dancer," she had proudly proclaimed to Good Housekeeping earlier this month. As the show progressed, reflecting on her and her partner's chemistry, she had also mentioned: "I didn't think our chemistry was going to be super amazing, but then we actually started dancing and practicing, and our chemistry was amazing. We're now best friends."
