The theme of week five on Dancing With the Stars season 31 was "My Most Memorable Year." Throughout the night, the contestants served up performances to honor a year that marked their lives in a significant way. In Shangela's case, she referenced recovering from breaking a leg after doing a "death drop" (dip) back in 2013.
Shangela provided further details about this performance on Instagram:
"'Dancing through the fire. Cuz I am a Champion and you're gonna hear me ROAR.' I felt the world dancing along with me last night. Thank you. Especially u Mom. Feeling every emotion still. Please y'all continue to VOTE and I vow I'll continue to bring every part of me to this ballroom until I can't no more. I really loved this dance."
Unfortunately, Shangela is currently placing low in the competition with a score of 32 as of the week five, night one episode that aired on Monday, October 17. She is tied with Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino and actor Trevor Donovan - who both also have scores of 32.
The night two episode will air Tuesday, October 18, and Shangie will have a shot at redeeming herself and potentially getting saved from elimination.
