AceShowbiz - The new episode of "Dancing with the Stars" season 28 aired on Monday, October 28 as it offered a fun-filled Halloween Night. That night, the remaining celebrity contestants would also hit the ball room to compete against each other after being split into Team Trick and Team Treat.
The first one to dance was Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson who opted for a jive to "Time Warp". The pair dressed as snakes and Len Goodman couldn't help but love their performance. "It was fast, it was fun, it was fearless," he said, while Bruno Tonioli called the routine a "surprising Halloween treat." They were given 27 points out of 30.
Next performer were James Van Der Beek and his pro dancer partner Emma Slater. Dancing a Viennese Waltz to "I Put a Spell on You" by Annie Lennox, James played a demon who wanted to break up Emma's relationship. Bruno thought it was "such a powerful performance" though he noticed that James slipped up at one point. Carrie Ann Inaba added that it was "flawless" until he slipped. James earned 27 points.
Following it up, Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber danced a Tango as Harley Quinn and Joker. Carrie Ann said that it was "ridiculously good" but she noticed that Ally lost her focus at one point. Len, meanwhile, praised them for the "terrific" and "proper dancing." The judges gave them a 27.
For the Halloween Night, Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten chose to take on Jazz to "Bad Girls" by Donna Summer. While Bruno suggested Hannah to be a little more grounded on the floor, Len thought that "The Bachelorette" alum was "crisp and clear." Carrie Ann, meanwhile, gave a tough criticism as she said, "There's something lacking in your performance," before adding that she looked "disconnected from the movement." Despite the criticism, Hannah got a decent score of 25 points.
Next up was Karamo Brown. Alongside Jenna Johnson, he performed a Paso Doble to "Survivor" by Destiny's Child". Bruno loved it, saying that there was "no lack of power and purpose" in the routine. Carrie Ann said he was like a "sonic boom." He got a 25.
As for Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko, they danced a vampiric Argentine Tango to "Whatever Lola Wants". Carrie Ann raved about the "powerful" performance which showed Lauren's "true transformation." She continued, "You are evolving as a dancer." Len agreed, saying that it was "such a spirited performance." The judges gave Lauren 27 points.
Doing a Frankenstein-inspired Jive to "Monster Mash" were Sean Spicer and Lindsay Arnold. It wasn't his best performance as Bruno commented, "Your timing is not your strong suit." Meanwhile, Carrie Ann said that it was a "dance only your mummies could love." The former White House secretary got 18 points.
Concluding the night were Kate Flannerry and Pasha Pashkov, who opted for a Rumba routing with Riding Hood and the wolf as the theme. Bruno praised Kate for her "beautiful and haunting" rumba, while Carrie Ann added, "You are shining very brightly." The judges, however, noted that she "lost connection" during the performance. Kate was given a 24.
Now it was time for group battle. Lauren, Hannah, James and Ally made up the Team Trick. They hit the dance floor with a powerful routine, which Len dubbed "interesting choreography." Team Trick got 27 points.
As for Team Treat, which consisted of Sean, Karamo, Kel and Kate, offered a "nightmarishly entertaining" routine. They were given a 24.
Later that night, it was revealed that Kate and Karamo were in the bottom two. Carrie Ann decided to save Karamo, while Bruno chose to save Kate. Len later picked Kate, so Karamo and Jenna were eliminated.
