Viewers got a special treat on “Dancing With the Stars” Monday (Oct. 14) — a “Saved by the Bell” reunion between Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater. Prior to her dance, Elizabeth Berkley, wearing a terrific ’90s look, was joined on stage by Mario Lopez and she talks about her jive will celebrate an iconic moment in her childhood.
Lopez says he’s “so proud” of Elizabeth and he’s “so excited” (no pun intended) to see her dance. He also cracks that he’s no longer rocking the Jheri curl mullet. Heh. And
The jive was done to “I’m So Excited” and it was terrific — particularly the opening where she reenacted her famous caffeine pill addiction scene. Awesome.
The judges loved it, with Len in particular expressing his love for her kicks and praising her dancing so tightly despite her height (which makes it harder) and Bruno calls it “incredible fun.” It earned Elizabeth an 8 from Carrie Ann and two 9s for a total of 26. Not her highest score, but still good to keep her in the competition for next week.
