Alfonso Ribeiro’s Best Dances on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 19
Reading Time: 2 minutes
With a brand new host on the ride for Dancing With the Stars, let’s look back at his time as a contestant on the show. Here’s seven of Alfonso Ribeiro’s best dances on Dancing With the Stars.
It’s no secret that Alfonso Ribeiro and his partner Witney Carson were some of the strongest competitors in season 19 of DWTS. Even though these partners had tons of behind-the-scenes accidents, they went on to be one of the highest scoring groups in the competition. At the end of the season, they brought home the mirrorball.
7. “Ghost” – Rumba
This dance was one of the first where Ribeiro and Carson shined on stage. Even though their introduction to the routine talks about their injuries, the duo put on a fantastic performance.
6. “Trust” Cha-Cha-Cha
This Halloween themed dance was one of their most fun of the season. Although the duo’s Batman and Robin outfits weren’t anything special, their dance was. It was choreographed perfectly to each beat of the song.
5. “Turn Down for What” – Trio Paso Doble
This dance is extremely impressive because of the choreography. Even though “Turn Down For What” has an electronic beat and tons of dead space, their trio paso doble never lost its energy. Carson did a great job matching the dance moves to the song.
4. “Shut Up and Dance” Cha-Cha-Cha and Argentine Tango Mix
Just like “Turn Down for What,” I wasn’t a fan of this song choice. Their choreography did wonders for them once again, even with the bad song choice. This wasn’t one of my favorite performances, but it ultimately won the show for this duo.
3. “Love Runs Out” – Argentine Tango
This was one of the most intricate dances Ribeiro did with Carson on Dancing With the Stars and he absolutely killed it. This Argentine Tango is so strong because each dancer is so focused and determined on making it absolutely perfect.
2. “It’s Not Unusual” – Jazz
This was truly the duo’s most memorable dance on the series. Fans of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air were happy to see Ribeiro’s nod to the show with the inclusion of “the Carlson.” This dance earned the duo their first perfect score in week four.
1. “Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing) – Freestyle
This dance number is so much fun because it’s obvious Ribeiro was able to let loose and enjoy each step without worrying about messing it up. Not only was he clearly having fun, he hit each piece of choreography perfectly.
