10. Gabby Windey, Val Chmerkovskiy’s Viennese Waltz
Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy danced an elegant Viennese Waltz on Elvis Night on DWTS. They performed the routine which was “soft like a whisper,” to “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” by Elvis Presley.
9. Charli D’Amelio, Mark Ballas’ Cha-Cha Routine
The TikTok star Charli D’Amelio left a big impression at the premiere of DWTS season 31 together with Mark Ballas. They performed a cha-cha routine to “Savage,” by Megan Thee Stallion, earning them the highest points of the night.
8. Daniel Durant, Britt Stewart’s Jazz Routine
Coming a long way since the start of the season, Daniel Durant is arguably the most improved dancer in the ballroom. The CODA actor gave it his all while performing a Jazz routine to “Enjoy the Silence,” by Depeche Mode.
7. Shangela, Gleb Savchenko’s Jazz Routine
During Halloween Night, the drag star and her partner performed a routine that told a compelling story. Complete with the Halloween makeup they danced to “Look What You Made Me Do,” by Taylor Swift earning a perfect score from the judges.
6. Wayne Brady, Witney Carson’s Samba Routine
Wayne Brady remains as one of the most remarkable ballroom dancers in terms of consistency. His Samba routine to “It Takes Two,” by Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock remains one of his best.
5. D’Amelio, Ballas’ Contemporary Routine
A performance that had both emotion and technique, the breathtaking contemporary display earned an almost perfect score from the judges. The routine took place while “When the Party’s Over,” by Lewis Capaldi was playing. D’Amelio expressed her struggles with anxiety through the dance routine, giving it a special meaning to her.
4. Team Scream’s Freestyle Routine
Team challenges on DWTS Halloween night give an interesting new dance style on the Mirrorball competition. On this special occasion, Team Scream made a perfectly choreographed routine that left the viewers wanting more.
3. Brady, Carson’s Jive Routine
Even with an injured knee, Brady was able to perform at the top of his game. Derek Hough said that it was the best Jive routine he had seen the entire night. The couple hit every step and are perfectly in sync with each other.
2. Shangela, Savchenko’s Freestyle Routine
One of the most memorable performances in the entire show in our books. There’s no shortage of fun surprises in this routine such as Shangela referencing the fried chicken she gave to Goodman. One of the other highlights of the dance is Savchenko wearing a full drag queen getup as Natasha.
1. D’Amelio, Ballas’ Freestyle Routine
What better pick for number one than the dance routine that bagged D’Amelio her first Mirrorball trophy. Unlike most freestyles during the finale, the couple chose to do a more stripped-down version of the dance.
