Carrie Ann Inaba, meanwhile, noted that Jordin had improved on almost every aspect. Jordin got 36 out of 40.

Up next were Charli D'Amelio and Mark Ballas. The two danced an Argentine Tango to "Tanguera" and impressed everyone when Charli was being exorcised down the bed and across the dance floor. Derek Hough praised "The Exorcist" moment, adding that he enjoyed this smooth version of the dance. As for Bruno Tonioli, he said only these two could turn a nightmare into a beautiful dance. The pair got 39 out of 40.

Dancing a Paso Doble to "bury a friend" by Billie Eilish were Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart. They brought a zombie video game concept and Bruno thought that Daniel played this game very well. Carrie Ann loved the characterization, but she criticized his shaping and footwork. Daniel was given 34 out of 40.

As for Shangela and Gleb Savchenko, they opted for a Jazz to "Look What You Made Me Do" by Taylor Swift. The pair, who made terrifying dolls, took the dance floor to offer a super creepy dance which Carrie Ann dubbed Shangela's best performance. Derek, meanwhile, believed that he's going to have nightmares about them. The spooky routine gave Shangela a perfect score.

Vinny Guadagnino and Koko Iwasaki, meanwhile, danced a Pose Doble to "Get Ghost" by A$AP Ferg, Mark Ronson and Passion Pit. Bruno thought there was nothing toxic in the routine. Meanwhile, Carrie Ann told Koko that the choreo was too blocky for a dancer like Vinny. The judges gave Vinny 30 out of 40.

Following it up were Heidi D'Amelio and Artem Chigvintsev who danced a Tango to "I Wanna Be Your Slave" by Maneskin. Derek gave the pair a standing ovation and said that it was Heidi's best dance. Len said that Heidi offered really good performances every week, but he wanted her to push it a little more. Heidi got 37 out of 40.

Dancing an Argentine Tango to "Shivers" by Ed Sheeran were Gabby Windey and Alan Bersten, who replaced Valentin Chmerkovskiy after his COVID-19 diagnosis.
