It’s “Disney Night” again. And while you have to love the synergy between ABC and Disney, you also have to wonder at what point are we going to start running out of Disney songs. Regardless, we’re here and it’s a small world, and getting smaller. We have to say goodbye to another star, and when the bottom two come down between Sasha and Frankie (!?!?), it was Sasha who departed.

Best of the best 

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold: 30/30
Len and Carrie threw a bit of a fit over that hip-hop interlude, but that is what a Disney perfect thirty looks like. This is arguably Jordan’s season to lose, but tonight is indisputably Jordan’s night to win. A former Disney star himself dancing an inspired Foxtrot to his own version of a Moana song — Jordan had the dance of the night.

Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson: 29/30

Who knew that Frankie Muniz as a pirate doing the Argentine Tango is a very niche thing that all of us really needed? It was like… so unsexy that it was… sexy? I don’t even know, but this Argentine Tango was pretty flawless, and it was actually Witney that made the only mistake in the dance, but no matter. Frankie gets two 10s.

Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas: 28/30

A Foxtrot to When You Wish Upon a Star seems a little aggressive because some songs shouldn’t be sped up, ya know? But the arrangement seems to hold the song’s basic format and allows Lindsey to have a really beautiful dance. And the judges are correct: Lindsey wasn’t quirky this week. There was no gimmick. And it allowed her to be nearly perfect.

Best of the rest 

Sasha Pieterse and Gleb Savchenko: 24/30

You have to give it up to Sasha for really sticking it out every single week. She could have easily been someone to have disappeared on week one or two, but she’s persisted, and you can see how much she wants it. And the rumba she gave tonight was her strongest dance to date. But in the end, it just wasn’t enough.

Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev: 27/30

Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy: 27/30

Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke: 25/30
Drew Scott and Emma Slater: 25/30

Vanessa Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 24/30

Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd: 22/30

USA TODAY Sparkle Points podium 

Donald Duck: 5/5

All bedazzled everything. Plumage for days. If Disney night is for being fabulous, then that D stands for Duck.

Nick Lachey / Peta Murgatroyd: 5/5

Peta Murgatroyd stole the show. That Quickstep was… something, but the wardrobe was out of this world.

Drew Scott: 4.5/5

How does Drew Scott keep ending up on the Sparkle Points podium? Unclear. But this week, he’s in a bedazzled white tux with tails, and of course, those tails are RAINBOW underneath, so honestly, how could he not be here?
