'Dancing With the Stars' recap: In a stunning upset, Heather Morris earns a perfect score but gets voted off

Bachelor Nick Viall brought in the lowest score of the evening, with a 28.

The reaction of the studio audience was deafening as they voiced their disapproval, but Morris handled it with grace and said she was happy to have had the chance to be on the show.

Effortlessly sashaying, twisting, kicking and gyrating around a faux construction site, Kordei continued to mesmerize with her dancing. Judge Bruno Tonioli told her, “You blew my boxes!” She would have had a perfect score but for Len Goodman, who gave her 8 out of 10, for the second-highest score of the night, 38.

The night’s performances concluded with team dances as the men faced off against the women.

Next week’s show will feature a night-at-the-movies theme, with the stars trying to capture the spirit of various movie genres.

Monday night’s standout moment:

In spite of some strong individual performances and charm of the team dances, the show was upended by the surprising elimination of Morris after she earned a perfect score for her rumba.
