VIDEO: Jordan Fisher Earns Perfect Score for MOANA-Themed Foxtrot on DWTS' 'Disney Night'
On last night's 'Disney Night' episode of DANCING WITH THE STARS, Broadway alum Jordan Fisher (HAMILTON, GREASE LIVE!) and his pro partner, Lindsay Arnold performed a foxtrot to Fisher's own version of the song "You're Welcome," from the Disney animated film MOANA.
Despite deviating a bit from a traditional fox trot during the verse rapped by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the judges loved their Polynesian-inspired routine and awarded the couple the first perfect score of the season. Carrie Ann Inaba gushed, "Your talent is so undeniable," while Bruno Tonioli described the number as, "how you would dance foxtrot in the 21st century." In an interview with DWTS co-host Erin Andrews, Arnold shared that it was a tough week for the couple due to Fisher's need to be a "perfectionist." "Every single thing I ask him to do, it's hard, because he wants to be perfect. And that is not an easy task, so it's definitely challenging."
Agreed Fisher, "We have fun in rehearsals, but I definitely tend to be a little too hard on myself at times, and Lindsay does a great job of pulling me out of that and living in what we're doing."
