Dancing With the Stars: Juniors bid farewell to another dynamic dancing duo on Sunday.
During a fun and enthusiastic “Time Machine” Night — where each routine was based, thematically, on a different era of music and dance — on Week 7 of the hit show, the five remaining pint-sized partners hit the dance floor to wow the judges.
Despite everyone giving it their all, hosts Jordan Fisher and Frankie Muniz were given the unfortunate task of revealing which couple would be packing their bags after weeks of hard work and impressive effort: Mandla Morris and pro Brightyn Brems — mentored by Cheryl Burke.
The elimination leaves four remaining teams, who are all now a step closer to victory. Here’s what judges Val Chmerkovskiy, Mandy Moore and Adam Rippon thought of their performances.
