Nelly’s Foxtrot on “Disney Night” earned him 18 points and protection from elimination on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Nelly danced to “It’s Alright” by Jon Batiste from the upcoming Pixar movie, “Soul.”

“DWTS” judge Derek Hough pointed out that this was Nelly’s first ballroom dance (he previously performed a Cha-Cha and a Salsa) and thought it was great.  Derek was also diggin’ Nelly’s custom ballroom/sneaker shoes.

Nelly’s broad shoulders were a topic of conversation and Derek said to, “watch those deltoids” during scoring.
