'Dancing With the Stars' recap: Mr. T waltzes off, Rashad Jennings dazzles

The performers recalled emotional moments from their lives.

Fifth Harmony stunner Normani Kordei shared a heartwarming story about the generous support of her parents, who never stopped believing in her. She kicked off the dancing with an enchanting rumba with her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, and was backed up live by fellow Fifth Harmony members Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui covering "Impossible" by Barbadian singer Shontelle. Tonioli called her a "rumba dominatrix" and gave her a 9 out of 10. Kordei got a total score of 32.

Unfortunately, with a low score of 28, Mr. T was later revealed to be in jeopardy and was voted off. The audience voiced its disapproval with booing that could be heard over the vote-off music. Nevertheless, the unflappable Mr. T said he was happy to have the opportunity and joked that he couldn't believe the show wanted him as a guest after he told producers that he can't dance.

Monday night's standout moment:

Simone Biles and Sasha Farber waltzed to "Good Good Father" by Chris Tomlin and impressed the judges, earning the second-highest score of the night: 36. She stole the show when she broke down talking about being adopted. "My parents saved me," she said. "They've set huge examples of how to treat other people, and they've been there to support me since Day One."

"Dancing With the Stars" returns next Monday on ABC.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story misidentified the timing of Nancy Kerrigan's miscarriages; they were after the birth of her first child, who was born in 1996. Her second child was born in 2005.
