Miles and Rylee joined forces to dance a '50s Jive to "Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley & His Comets. The 50's-themed routine was loved by the judges, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Mandy Moore and Adam Rippon."You are here for the win, and I love that. ... You had awesome side-by-side synchronized movements," Mandy raved. "You've got so much soul. ... You were born to do this," added Val. They got a 28 out of 30.
The next performers were Mackenzie Ziegler and Sage Rosen, who are mentored by Gleb Savchenko. They did a '80s Jazz to "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. Adam noted that Mackenzie didn't really let go during the performance, while Mandy said, "I was moved by that. ... I thought you had great content." The pair earned a 26.
Mandla Morris and Brightyn Brems, mentored by Cheryl Burke, took the stage with a Futuristic Paso Doble to "Gangsta's Paradise" by 2WEI. Adam said that Mandla has done incredible even without having dance experience, adding that he enjoyed the performance. Mandla was given a 24.
Going back in time with '40s Quickstep to "Classic" by MKTO were Ariana Greenblatt and Artyon Celestine. Of the Brandon Armstrong pair's performance, Adam said, "You are a performer I am here for. That was great." Val praised her, "You're a star." They got a 27.
Rounding out the night were Sky Brown and JT Church, mentored by Alan Bersten. The two danced a '20s Charleston to "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)" by Stacy Ferguson a.k.a. Fergie feat. Q-Tip and GoonRock. "You've got it. ... You've got presence, charm, commitment. ... You're a star and you belong on the dance floor," Val commented. Adam added, "You bring so much joy. ... You've become such a role model on this show. If you work hard, you can be good at anything. ... I look up to you too." She got a 27.
