It’s time for the most emotional night of the year on Dancing with the Stars as the 11 remaining contestants reflect on their Most Memorable Years. It’s always an evening filled with tears and maybe even a few 10s.

This season’s group of memorable years includes some big ones. Nick Lachey will recall when he married Vanessa while Vanessa will honor the birth of their son, who was 10 weeks premature. Nikki Bella will reminisce about the year she needed surgery for a broken neck that almost ended her career while Victoria Arlen’s most memorable year is this year, because it’s when she learned to walk again.

But the routine to watch out for is Jordan Fisher, doing a Contemporary dance inspired by the year that he was officially adopted by his grandparents. That has some serious weight behind it, and with his skills, I wouldn’t be shocked if he gets the first 10s of the season. In recent years, the combination of Most Memorable Year Night and Contemporary has been very 10-friendly, with Rashad Jennings, Bindi Irwin, Willow Shileds and Lea Thompson all earning 10s for their dances.

Can Nikki Bella Save Herself from Elimination?>>>

Nick and Nikki seem less likely to earn 10s for their Contemporary routines, though Nck dancing to “Falling Slowly” from Once is a fantastic song choice. In addition, Vanessa will be dancing to a song performed by her husband.
