Dancing with the Stars

Do any of you watch Dancing with the Stars at all? Did you see last night's Most Memorable Year episode? If not, stop what you're doing and go watch it now.

It. Was. Beautiful.

Jonathan Bennett (aka Aaron Samuels) paid a tribute to Mean Girls and dedicated it to his parents, who both passed away within the last two years. Betsey Johnson (the adorable and sweeter-than-sugar fashion designer) talked about her daughter. Tommy Chong (remember Leo from That's 70s Show?) even talked about the year he went to prison.

But one that really hit me was when Bethany Mota (of YouTube fame) performed to Colbie Caillat's "Try" and told the story of how she was bullied as a young teen. Most of the stories were very emotional, but this one seemed to be extremely relevant to society right now. Colbie Caillat sang live and the Bethany and Derek performed in front of a backdrop of hurtful and then inspirational words to tell the story. It was just beautiful.

The whole episode was an emotional roller coaster. The most exciting part for me (although I'm pretty sure most of America would agree) was Alfonso Ribeiro —finally — bringing back The Carlton. I've been waiting since his name was announced on the cast list, and I thought I'd have to wait for the freestyle portion of the finals to see it. But he knows what the fans want. Honestly, he could probably win the whole show if he just sneaks that into every routine.

Oh, and Sadie Robertson did a stellar duck-themed performance (feathers included) involving her family and the cast of Duck Dynasty — and lots of fake beards.
