Welcome to the official Dancing with the Stars recap for Season 21, Week 6 “Famous Dances Night” episode (original airdate October 19, 2015). The nine remaining teams took on some of the most iconic dances of all time. So it’s fitting that one of the most iconic stars of all time, Olivia Newton-John, joined the fun as a guest judge. Let’s get to the highlights!

Nobody Puts Bindi in a Corner: Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough did the Rumba to “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing. Jennifer Grey paid the team a visit during rehearsals. When it came time to hit the dance floor, Derek kicked off the routine by saying, “Nobody puts Bindi in a corner.” The judges were blown away by how the team captured all the nuances of the iconic movie moment. It was good enough for Bindi’s first perfect score of the season.
