What a night!
This season of Dancing With The Stars has already been wildly entertaining, and last night the show kicked it up a notch with some Cirque du Soleil-inspired performances — not to mention Laurie Hernandez earned the FIRST perfect score of the season!
Hernandez and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, were easily the highlight of the night as they danced jazz to The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson from the Cirque show MJ One and were absolutely on point! Unsurprisingly, their score reflected their flawless number as they snagged the first 30 this year!
Of course there were plenty of other incredible performances throughout the night from Ryan Lochte, Vanilla Ice, and several others, but the other big moment came when Amber Rose apologized to Julianne Hough for their recent misunderstanding over body shaming.
Amber addressed the little tiff following her performance saying:
“Like I said in the package, when you said that, I felt very embarrassed, and I felt like you weren’t talking about my dance, but if I misunderstood, then I apologize. I’m a very positive person, I don’t like to argue or bicker or make things weird, so moving forward I just want complete positive energy and to just have fun.”
Well sounds like the message was well received as Julianne seemed to bury the hatchet as well saying:
“The thing I love so much about dance is that it’s a universal platform for people to express themselves. Any person ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ whether that is age, height, body shape, ethnicity or sexual orientation ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it is something that people can express themselves to do. And for me, I am a huge supporter of that and that alone and as a judge, I’m here to solely judge you and everyone in this competition for only the dancing. I want you to know that.”
