Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd dance next, performing a samba to “Wild Wild West” by Will Smith ft. Dru Hill and Kool Moe Dee. They are celebrating the Western genre.
Bruno Tonioli encourages Lachey to not force the movements but says he loved the concept. Carrie Ann Inaba says he may be selling himself short, while Len Goodman praises his solo dancing. Guest judge Shania Twain says she could sense his apprehension, but calls it entertaining. They score a 26 out of 40.

It’s a “Night at the Movies” as the nine remaining couples celebrate the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. On Monday, the stars will dance a paso doble, rumba, Argentine tango, samba, jive, quickstep or jazz routine to capture the sparkling spirit of various movie genres. One couple will be sent home tonight. Shania Twain serves as a guest judge. Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd are currently at the bottom of the leaderboard with 22 out of 30 points. At the top of the leaderboard are Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold, who earned the first perfect score of the season for their “Moana”-themed foxtrot during Disney Night.

I have a feeling that Nick and Peta will be going home tonight. They did poorly the past few weeks. #DWTS

Either Terrell or Nick should go home on #DWTS they just aren't as strong as the other couples.
