Julianne Hough’s “Heartbreaking” DWTS Performance About Marinda Davis

It’s Week 10 on Dancing with the Stars, Season 25, and there are just four couples left in the competition (Drew Scott & Emma; Frankie Muniz & Witney; Jordan Fisher & Lindsay; Lindsey Stirling & Mark). Each couple gets to dance twice on the November 20 episode and in front of DWTS dancer Julianne Hough, who returns as a guest judge and a performer.

In the performance, Hough will portray Marinda Davis in an “important and meaningful performance.” Davis was a dancer but “was forced to stop because of her multiple health diagnoses.” Davis now works as a choreographer. Hough writes that Davis “has completely made an impact in my life in the short time we’ve known each other and I couldn’t be more honored to be portraying her in this heartbreaking yet celebratory pieces on DWTS.” Davis says Hough “is genius in the piece.” See video below. Note: Davis teaches at Broadway Dance Center in New York City. Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8pm. The winner of Season 25 will be announced on Tuesday, November 21 at 9pm on ABC.

Tonight’s The Night ???⭐️ So much beautiful work has gone in to creating this important and meaningful performance. My friend Marinda was a dancer her whole life, but when she was forced to stop because of her multiple health diagnosis’s, she seamlessly moved on to choreography. This piece is based on her life changing story. I have been so incredibly fortunate to do the things that I love in my career, but I have to say, this performance will probably be one of the most significant performances I get to do because it’s not about me….. it’s about someone else. The thing that I’ve learned in the last few years is that when you open your heart and resources to others, without wanting anything in return but for them to shine, something forever changes inside of you. That pure joy, gratitude and love exceeds any accomplishment you could ever have. “When you start to fully Give, you start to fully Live” -JH @marinspirations has completely made an impact in my life in the short time we’ve known each other and I couldn’t be more honored to be portraying her in this heartbreaking yet celebratory piece on #DWTS. Tune in to be a part of this special moment with us. Tonight 8/7C on ABC!
