Closing out the first round of Trio Night are Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold, dancing a quickstep to “Chuck Berry” by Pharrell Williams.
Carrie Ann Inaba calls it “brilliant and sassy,” while Len Goodman gives them a standing ovation. Bruno Tonioli praises the fusion style of the quickstep, which he calls extremely intricate and outstanding. They score a 30 out of 30.
Watch Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold’s Whimsical Quickstep
This season’s Mirrorball winner will be revealed in just a few weeks and tonight, the six remaining competitors are bringing their best moves to the dance floor for Trio Night. On Monday, the stars will dance a waltz, quickstep, samba, Viennese waltz, Charleston or Argentine tango in the first round of the quarterfinals. To celebrate Trio Night, couples will also be paired with former winners and finalists, including Kelly Monaco, Laurie Hernandez and reigning champion Rashad Jennings. One couple will be eliminated at the end of the night. Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke are currently at the bottom of the leaderboard with 49 out of 60 points. At the top of the leaderboard are Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson, who earned perfect scores for both their creepy contemporary and Broadway-inspired team dance on Halloween Night.

According to ABC, Fisher is an actor and singer whose credits include “Grease: LIVE,” “Moana” and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit Broadway musical “Hamilton.” “The underlying thread to all Fisher’s success across the board is music. He’s not just a multi-talented performer but also a storyteller. His influences are diverse and can be traced back to his days growing up in a football town outside of Birmingham, Alabama, where he cultivated his tastes by listening to everything from Luther Vandross to Metallica while simultaneously developing his acting skills at the Birmingham-based Red Mountain Theatre Company.” He is currently working on his first full-length album.
The star-studded lineup for the 25th season of “Dancing with the Stars” includes former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens, Hamilton’s Jordan Fisher and “Property Brothers” co-host Drew Scott. Other stars include Victoria Arlen, Lindsey Stirling and Frankie Muniz. Fan-favorite pros Mark Ballas and Cheryl Burke also return to the dance floor this season, along with hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.
The judging panel features Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Their scores, along with America’s votes, determine which couples will go home and which ones will advance to compete for the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
“Dancing with the Stars” airs every Monday night at 8 p.m. on ABC.
