'Dancing With the Stars' season 30 recap: Spice Girls' Melanie C sent home

·2 min read

The "Dancing With the Stars" cast celebrated all things "Grease," one of America's most beloved movie musicals, on Monday and the night included several surprise cameos from the original cast as well as a shocking goodbye.

The night provided plenty of highlights. Frankie Avalon, who belted out "Beauty School Dropout" in "Grease," performed the standout hit from the 1978 film on the ballroom floor as "The Talk" co-host Amanda Kloots danced the Viennese waltz.

JoJo Siwa earned the season's first perfect score. The Nickelodeon star nailed her foxtrot to "Look at Me I'm Sandra Dee (Reprise)," which brought judge Len Goodman to his feet to compliment the "superb" routine.

The night also saw "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kenya Moore's big comeback. The reality star shook off the sting of almost being sent home for the past two consecutive weeks and earned her first straight set of "9"s for her rumba to "There Are Worse Things (I Could Do)."

But it wasn't all fun and games. Goodman was forced to deliver yet another tie-breaking vote at the end of the night after the audience sent singer Melanie C and influencer Olivia Jade into the bottom two.

In the end, he sided with fellow judge Derek Hough to spare Jade, overruling Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli who opted to save the Spice Girl.

Here are the current standings:

Nickelodeon star JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson -- 40/40

"The Talk" co-host Amanda Kloots and Alan Bersten -- 39/40
