Tonight was Disney night on Dancing With the Stars!  The top 9 danced to classic Disney songs, while dressed like the characters, of course.  And season 9 champ (and the voice of Shang from Mulan) Donny Osmond returned as a guest judge!  Read on for a recap about who earned a perfect score dancing to Oscar-winning hit “Let It Go” and who was unfortunately eliminated.

Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke danced the quickstep to “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin and scored a 28 out of 40.  He’s safe this week, but his scores could definitely be better.  Bonus: a cameo from the Genie!

Next up was Charlie White and Sharna Burgess with a jazz dance to “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins (I spelled that without the help of Google, thank you).  Charlie had a little mishap when he dropped his cane, but they still earned a solid 37 out of 40.

Princess Belle AKA Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy (I did use Google for that) danced the quickstep to Beauty & the Beast‘s “Be Our Guest.”  It was totally adorable and included dancing plates.  They earned a magical 39 out of 40!  So close!

The lovely Amy Purdy and her Prince Charming Derek Hough danced the waltz to “So This Is Love” from Cinderella.  Amy had some trouble with this one because of the feet that she does not have, but she looked stunning and seemed to float across the dance floor.  Together, the earned a 37 out of 40.

Teen heartthrob Cody Simpson and Witney Carson danced the samba to “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from The Lion King.  However, Donny didn’t think Cody looked too happy during the dance, so they only earned a 34 out of 40.

NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani were up next with the foxtrot to “Cruella De Vil” from 101 Dalmatians.  There was a little bit of tension between them because of the whole switch up last week, but they scored a 36 out of 40 this time, NeNe’s best yet!

Then came James Maslow and Peta Murgatoryd who danced the contemporary to “Let It Go” from Academy Award-winner Frozen! I am obsessed with this performance.  It was incredibly fabulous and earned them the first PERFECT SCORE of the season with a 40 out of 40!  Go Team Jeta!

Recently, James received a prom invite via viral video from a girl named Hannah.  James was unable to attend her prom due to the DWTS schedule, but he invited her and her family to LA for the taping of the show.  So thoughtful!  And how gorgeous do these two look?!

Meryl Davis and Maks Chmerkovskiy were next with the samba to “I Wan’na Be Like You” from The Jungle Book.  Any night we get to see Maks shirtless is a great night.  They ended with a 36 out of 40.

The final dance came from Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas, to “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid.  Candace has definitely been taking the judges’ comments to heart and working on her performance, and they commended her for that!  They earned a 35 out of 40.

The couples in jeopardy were Candace & Mark, NeNe & Tony, and Cody & Witney.  Sadly, it was the end for Cody & Witney!  But there is still time to save the other couples!  Voting closes at 8 PM (ET) tomorrow night, so check out ABC.com or Facebook to vote now!

If you watched, what was your favorite performance?  Who do you think is going to win?
