Jimmie Allen Brings Disney Magic To Life With Jazz Dance “Badass” To Billie Eilish’s Hit On “Dancing With The Stars”
Jimmie Allen got his best scores from the Dancing with the stars so far Tuesday night when he took to the dance floor alongside his partner, Emma Slater, for a jazz dance that fans will not soon forget to the tune of “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish.
The country singer kicked off the Disney Villians-themed show as family members watched from the side stage.
“I love Disney, the movies, the theme parks, t-shirts, hats, everything I’m all about Disney. Between Disney World and Disneyland, I’ve been there about 80 times, ”Allen exclaimed. “I proposed to my wife at Disney World. We had our baby revealed there. I feel like this is the one place people like to leave all their nonsense out there and come here and like to escape.
Allen and Slater chose to dress up as Captain Hook and Tinkerbell, as Allen admitted that he “always had an obsession with Captain Hook”.
“I want people to feel that Disney magic in the ballroom,” Slater said ahead of their performance.
“Disney Magic is a real thing, don’t believe me, check out the pixie dust,” Allen added.
Allen and Slater deeply impressed the judges and won the jury’s praise.
“I liked the concept, the story of the dance, Captain Hook fighting the little Tinkerbell,” Len Goodman said. “I thought the elevators were right in character. You surprise me every week because your dance comes on time, well done Jimmie.
“Hey Jimmie, man, I’m so impressed with you man,” Derek Hough added. “When that side-to-side came into play, you said let’s go… There was so much umph and energy. Dude, some people transform on this show, and you definitely are one of those people. I love to see your progress man.
Bruno Tonioli arrived with the evening compliment: “Jimmie, you got me hooked.”
“It was a badass jazz routine,” he continued. “You gave it your own style, you were totally in character, you never let it go. It was your best performance yet.
“Jimmie, Jimmie, Jimmie, Jam! Disney is totally your jam, I mean I can say how much you love it because it’s manifested in both of your dances, ”exclaimed Carrie Ann Inaba. “It was amazing! That’s all I’m going to say.
Allen had his best score of the season so far with three 9s and an 8, for a total of 35/40.
His overall score for the two Disney nights totaled 67/80.
“This is my first 9 and I discovered that my wife is 2 centimeters [dilated]”Allen said.” So it’s a good night. “
