The Grinch was no match for Ariana Greenblatt’s freestyle in the ‘Dancing with the Stars: Juniors’ finale [Watch]

“You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” but you’re a darn good dancer, Ms. Greenblatt. “Avengers: Infinity War” actress Ariana Greenblatt and her fellow “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” finalists performed Christmas-themed routines for their freestyle dances during the season finale. Greenblatt portrayed Cindy Lou Who while her pro partner Artyon Celestine was the title character in their Dr. Seuss inspired number. Watch it above.

Greenblatt was hoping a former “DWTS” contestant would be her good luck charm: this version of “Mr. Grinch” was performed by violinist Lindsey Stirling featuring Sabrina Carpenter. Stirling was the runner-up in season 25 of the grownup series, behind Mirror Ball champion (and “Juniors” co-host) Jordan Fisher. Greenblatt’s resulting routine was full of strong choreographic content, storytelling and a couple of impressive lifts. And the young actress, as always, has a knack for getting into character.
