Four weeks in and Dancing With the Stars already handed out the first perfect score. The recipients? Gymnist Laurie Hernandez and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. The duo danced to Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel" from the Cirque Du Soleil show 'MJ One' and it was phenomenal!
The three judges, who were left speechless, all gave the couple a 10.
"I'm just glad that our elements stood out and she was able to command the performance," Val told E! News. "It turned out awesome. I wasn't expecting a perfect score."
The Dancing duo hadn't even gotten a nine yet. "It was crazy," Laurie told us. "When I was competing it was that crowd-pleaser type of mentality whereas this is more for myself, my partner, just focusing on the dance. I was able to enjoy it the exact same," she said about her gymnastics past.
