When you're on Patti LaBelle's stage, you've got to play by her rules.

Performing her 2004 hit "2 Steps Away" was just a warm-up for LaBelle, 70, as she prepped for "Most Memorable Year" night on DWTS. That night, she would earn a solid 30 out of 40 points traveling back to 1973 and performing a jazz routine to her hit "Dan Swit Me."
Partner Artem Chigvintsev is just one of LaBelle's castmates, including Derek Hough and Suzanne Somers, watching in awe as the legend freestyles with the show's house band, Ray Chew Live.

While Dancing with the Stars' "Spring Break Night" had some skin-baring outfits, unlike many coeds' wild getaways, it was memorable.
Front-runners like Riker Lynch, Nastia Liukin and Rumer Willis continued to pull ahead, but not all of the competition did so hot individually. Lucky for the underdogs, there's strength in numbers, and this week's group performances gave everyone a boost.

While an obvious plug to the show's parent company, Disney Night made for some of the most inventive routines yet – not to mention some of the most creative costumes yet (Prince Farming in a skirt! Rumer Willis in full-on purple body paint!).
Paying homage to Disney favorites both new and old, the stars channeled their favorite characters while animated support "joined them," appearing on-screen at home. A cute idea in theory, it usually just took attention away from the performance or was so fleeting it was easy to be forgotten.
The night got a slow start, but the final three stars of the night – Rumer, Riker Lynch and Nastia Liukin – hit the ballroom floor with sets to remember. Elsewhere, opener Suzanne Somers and Robert Herjavec, uh, Floundered.
Read on for the highlights of Dancing with the Stars' Disney Night.

Routines themed around the Stars' most memorable years made for good video packages but not-so-inspired dances. I mean, how do you adequately pay homage to an IED attack?
Judge Len Goodman certainly wasn't in the mood for sob stories: the ol' boy was grumpy all night and didn't seem to like anybody, least of all Rumer Willis, who performed a brilliant waltz as a snub to all her early haters.
Then again, anybody can have a bad night in the ballroom. Witness: Michael Sam and Riker Lynch, who both found themselves in jeopardy by the end of Monday's episode.
Before you learn the guys' fate, check out a sampling of the performances from a night of memories (as well as a few moments we'd love to forget).

In an exclusive preview of Monday's Latin-night routine, Chigvintsev tells LaBelle that they'll be dancing a cha cha, which he describes as "a very flirtatious dance."
Asks LaBelle, "It's sexy?"
"Yeah, it's going to be very sexy," says Chigvintsev. "Some clothes might come off."
