Alek and Lindsay did a Paso Doble to Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”. Expressing how the recent shooting at UMPQUA Community College back in his hometown of Roseburg, Oregon greatly effected him.

Nick Carter and partner Sharna did a Jazz number to a Backstreet Boys hit “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”. And for Nick his most memorable year was of course meeting the Backstreet Boys! Recreating the Backstreet pandemonium the dance was a job well done. 27 out of 30 for the night.
Carlos PenaVega and Witney were up next. Carlos’ most memorable year was 2012 when Big Time Rush were at the top of their fame.
