DWTS 2019 Recap: Week 7 - Halloween Night

Things were getting spooky on the dancefloor this week as the eight remaining couples returned to Dancing with the Stars 2019 to celebrate Halloween and all of the fun and creepy things that go bump-bump-bump in the night! After last week's dramatic elimination, perhaps the scariest things in the ballroom were judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba, who would be choosing which couple in the bottom two would get treated to staying in the competition and which couple would get the trick of being sent home. Which of your favorite couples' performances were scary-good and which were just plain scary? And who went home on Dancing with the Stars? Keep scrolling for the full recap and results!

Kel Mitchell & Witney
Kicking things off, Kel and his partner Witney Carson channeled The Rocky Horror Picture Show for a fleet-footed Jazz routine to Time Warp. According to the judges, there was nothing rocky or horrific about that dance, with Bruno declaring it was "a surprising Halloween treat!" And the scores were certainly sweet, earning Kel and Witney their highest marks of the competition so far.

SCORES:
Carrie Ann – 9; Len – 9; Bruno – 9; TOTAL: 27 out of 30

James Van Der Beek & Emma
For their spellbinding Viennese Waltz, James and his partner, Emma Slater, danced to "I Put a Spell On You," hoping to reach the highs they've been reaching the past two weeks. It was a commanding, story-rich performance that the judges called "perfection" and "flawless," except for a small mis-step. While the scores were still high, it sounds like they just missed the season's first 10s.

Ally and her partner Sasha Farber found themselves in the bottom two, so this week they were hoping to rebound with a fearless Tango. Carrie Ann called her performance "visceral" and Len called it "a terrific tango" with "lots of proper dancing."

Carrie Ann – 9; Len – 9; Bruno – 9; TOTAL: 27 out of 30

Hannah Brown & Alan
Hannah told her partner Alan Bersten that she was feeling a little discouraged after last week's feedback from the judges. To help her step it up, Alan suggested that this week, she try setting aside the "pageant girl" and embrace her inner "bad girl." Bruno declared there "was nothing scary about" her performance, but she really needed to "punch it." Carrie Ann agreed that it seems like there is something missing from Hannah's dancing.

Carrie Ann – 8; Len – 9; Bruno – 8; TOTAL: 25 out of 30

Karamo & Jenna
Karamo and his partner Jenna Johnson wanted to take the opportunity this week to show that they're the survivors of the competition with a powerful Paso Doble routine to Beyoncé's "Survivor." Bruno declared there was "no lack of power or purpose" in that routine, but called him on "shorting the shaping" and Len echoed the same sentiments.

Lauren Alaina & Gleb
Last week's dance was incredibly emotional for Lauren, but this week, it was up to her partner Gleb Savchenko to get her ready for an Argentine Tango. While Lauren had been a little bashful in past weeks, she had no trouble vamping it up this week as a "vampire bombshell." Bruno even compared her to a "vampire Marilyn Monroe!" And she did it all with several hurt ribs, including at least one fractured one.

Sean Spicer & Lindsay
This week, Sean's partner, Lindsay Arnold, had Sean take on the character of Frankenstein's monster for a spooky Jive to the "Monster Mash." The judges once again applauded Sean's effort, but the dancing was a bit on the monstrous side.

Kate Flannery & Pasha
For Halloween Night, Kate's partner Pasha Pashkov had to get her ready for a Red Riding Hood-inspired Rumba to Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game." Bruno called the routine "beautiful and haunting" and praised her arm and shoulder extension. Carrie Ann said Kate "oozed" confidence and Len once again praised Pasha for the content and choreography.

Team Trick (Lauren, Ally, Hannah & James)
Team Trick haunted the dancefloor with a macabre dinner party performance focusing on synchronicity and precision. Len lauded the "fantastic" and "interesting" choreography. Bruno loved that it was "dramatic" and "elegant." Carrie Ann "loved it," and she and Bruno remarked on how much more open Hannah seemed in this dance than her individual routine.

Team Treat (Sean, Karamo, Kate & Kel)
With 9s across the board for Team Trick's performance, the pressure was on for Team Treat to step it up. They were feeling pretty good going in because they were dancing to "Sweet Dreams" by Beyoncé. Bruno declared their routine "nightmarishly entertaining" even though "not everyone was right on time." Carrie Ann named Kate the MVP of the dance and Len liked the fun of it.
