Each performance was inspired by iconic horror movies that people have come to love (and fear). The challenge was not only to put up a great performance but to embody the persona of the characters that are known to make people's skin crawl.

JoJo Siwa and pro-Jenna Johnson danced Jazz to 'Anything Goes' by District 78 ft. Patrice Covington, inspired by 'IT'. The duo scored 40 out of 40, placing them first on the scoreboard. Siwa's second perfect score of the season, her performance as Pennywise went above and beyond, as she got into the character.

Iman Shumpert and pro Daniella Karagach

Score: 40/40
Iman Shumpert and pro Daniella Karagach danced Contemporary to 'I Got 5 On It (Tethered Mix from Us)' by Luniz ft. Michael Marshall. inspired by 'Us'. The duo scored 40 out of 40, placing them first on the scoreboard. Shumpert and Karagach struggled at the start of 'DWTS' but ever since their 'Disney Villain's Night' performance, they seemed to have cracked the code. Their 'Horror Night' performance came with intense lifts and acting, which propelled them to the top of the game. Shumpert tries his best with every performance, but this time around, with the choice of song, dance style and inspiration, he truly seemed like he was in his element.

Jimmie Allen and pro Emma Slater

Score: 38/40
Jimmie Allen and pro Emma Slater danced Contemporary to 'Say Something' by Daniel Jang, inspired by 'A Quiet Place'. The duo scored 38 out of 40, placing them second on the scoreboard. Allen channeled all his emotions as a parent during his performance, seeing that it was the crux of the movie. The two also incorporated sign language, while resulting in a highly emotional performance overall -- both Allen and Slater found themselves in tears by the end of it.

Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten

Score: 38/40
Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten danced the Argentine Tango to 'Paint It, Black' by Ciara, inspired by 'SAW'. The duo scored 38 out of 40, placing them second on the scoreboard. Kloots kickstarted her 'DWTS' run dominating the scoreboards, but now, it seems like she is struggling to clock in perfect 10s. While the judges praised her performance, it seemed to fall short yet again, with the judges noting that the performance felt 'forced'.

Olivia Jade and pro Val Chmerkovskiy

Score: 36/40
Olivia Jade and pro-Val Chmerkovskiy danced the Paso Doble to 'Beggin' by Måneskin, inspired by 'The Purge'. The duo scored 36 out of 40, placing them third on the scoreboard. Although she was in the bottom two previously, Jade seems to have made a comeback according to the judges. However, her overall performance seemed to have been generally lackluster, even though her scores said otherwise.

Suni Lee and pro Sasha Farber

Score: 36/40
Suni Lee and pro-Sasha Farber danced the Tango to 'Bad Habits' by Ed Sheeran, inspired by 'The Vampire Diaries'. The duo scored 36 out of 40, placing them third on the scoreboard. Lee seems to have hit a point of stagnation, seeing that the judges' feedback doesn't go beyond them asking her to 'keep at it' or to open up. This week was no different -- while Lee nails the technicality of it all, the passion that is needed continues to hold her back from scoring 10s. Despite being a frontrunner, Lee found herself in the bottom with Kenya Moore. The judges however felt as though she had more to offer and saved her from elimination.

Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke

Score: 36/40
Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke danced the Cha Cha to 'There Will Be Blood' by Kim Petras, inspired by 'American Psycho'. The duo scored 36 out of 40, placing them third on the scoreboard. Between using rehearsal footage and performing virtually, Rigsby hasn't had the dance to prove his worth on the 'DWTS' dancefloor. However, this week seemed like a breakthrough for him and Burke, as the duo truly got into their 'American Psycho' personas. The question is, will they be able to keep up this energy and will it be enough to carry them forward?

The Miz and pro Witney Carson

Score: 34/40
The Miz and pro Witney Carson danced the Paso Doble to 'Wicked Games' by RAIGN, inspired by 'Hellraiser'. The duo scored 34 out of 40, placing them fourth on the scoreboard. With The Miz, it is not so much the dancing as it is him taking on characters that have fans hooked. While his rendition of 'Pinhead' was downright creepy in a good way, the competition is getting tougher. There is only so long characterization might continue to work for him.

Melora Hardin and pro Artem Chigvintsev

Score: 34/40
Melora Hardin and pro Artem Chigvintsev danced the Jive to 'Hound Dog' by Elvis Presley, inspired by 'Cujo'. The duo scored 34 out of 40, placing them fourth on the scoreboard. This week truly felt like a fall from grace for Hardin, who had been dominating the scoreboard so far. While the dance itself was entertaining, compared to other performances, it seemed rather kitschy.

Kenya Moore and pro Brandon Armstrong

Score: 32/40
Kenya Moore and pro Brandon Armstrong danced the Argentine Tango to 'Take My Breath' by The Weeknd, inspired by 'Arachnophobia'. 
The duo scored 32 out of 40, placing them fifth on the scoreboard. 
Although Moore has been consistently receiving the judges' praise, it seldom seemed to translate in high scores, resulting in her being at the bottom once again. When it boiled down to it, the judges' picked to save Suni Lee over her, who was also in the bottom. While fans were rightfully outraged, seeing that Moore has been consistent with her performances, it turns out there might be more to the story, seeing that 'RHOA' resumes filming.
