‘Dancing With the Stars’: On Halloween show, Hayes Grier sent home without treats

‘DWTS’ recap: Vine Star, Hayes Grier, eliminated as Irwin dances to the top, again.

The teary-eyed teen bid farewell to the Mirror Ball on a Halloween-themed night, which showed just how much pressure was brewing as the middle point of competition passed. Reigning leader-board queen Bindi Irwin held onto her top spot, while American hero Alex Skarlatos landed in last place — but nowhere near jeopardy, thanks to viewer votes.

The edgy pro, Ballas, dreamed up an “Edward Scissorhands” performance straight out of Tim Burton’s imagination, and the kooky number was a hit with the judges. While other stars have slipped and slowly climbed back, the wild-life conversationist remains the only contestant who has kept up her high scores, no matter the performance.

Hayes and Emma weren’t the only ones who had to wait until the end to hear their fate – so did Tamar Braxton and Val Chmerkovskiy as well as Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas. The calendar says the night of costumes, candy and commercialism won’t happen until Saturday, but that doesn’t stop “DWTS” from celebrating a few days early. Since Bindi Irwin and Nick Carter are the top two contestants for the season in terms of judges’ points, they serve as team captains and picked their teammates after the Oct. 19 show. He isn’t bothered: “That’s a good thing. … People have a hard time giving me the real because I’m a Backstreet Boy and all these things.” We see Nick studying on a plane on a quick trip to New York and then practicing, exhausted, in California less than two days later. This is a very slowed-down version of the Evanescence song, previously used in an electric paso doble in season 10 with Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya.

He’s taking from the “Edward Scissorhands” playbook, which allows him to indulge in his love of over-the-top makeup and costuming. (Is every week like Halloween for Mark?) Mark and Alexa revisit their in-jeopardy visit last week and reaffirm their partnership and connection. Julianne agrees with Bruno in that Andy’s top and bottom halves were weird, but she also says it was “weird but awesome.” Score: 26 (Carrie Ann 9, Julianne 9, Bruno 8).
