Maureen McCormick and Artem Chigvintsev are up next, dancing the tango to “You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovi, inspired by the 1980s.
Len Goodman says he liked Maureen’s attitude, but adds that it did contain some “blunders.” Julianne Hough acknowledges that she slipped but praises the fact that she kept going. Bruno Tonioli says to focus on the positives, while Carrie Ann Inaba praises her attitude as well. They score a 28.

It’s “Eras Night” and the dance floor is ready for a serious dose of nostalgia. The remaining couples will perform dance routines inspired by various decades to dance styles such as the Charleston, foxtrot and jitterbug. Head judge Len Goodman returns to the judging panel this evening. The first set of team dances also occurs tonight, with Team Past (James, Calvin, Ryan, Maureen) going head-to-head against Team Future (Marilu, Laurie, Terra, Jana). Who will come out on top? One couple will be eliminated at the end of tonight’s episode, leaving seven couples who will be preparing spooky performances for Halloween Week next Monday.

According to ABC, “Maureen McCormick is widely known for her portrayal of eldest daughter, Marcia Brady, on the seminal ABC television sitcom The Brady Bunch, on which she starred from 1969 to 1974. She later reprised the role in many of the numerous Brady Bunch spin-offs and films, including The Brady Kids,The Brady Bunch Hour, The Brady Brides as well as A Very Brady Christmas. But America’s favorite girl next door is way more than the three words she became famous for, encapsulated by ‘Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!’”
