Alexa PenaVega and her partner Mark Ballas wowed the judges and audience alike with their “Breaking Bad”-themed jazz dance on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” Watch the video below.

Each dancing pair had to choose a television series’ theme song for Monday’s “TV Night,” and PenaVega and Ballas nailed it with their routine, based on “Breaking Bad.” Ballas had a shaved head, goatee, and glasses to look nearly identical to Bryan Cranston’s Walter White character from the show. And along with PenaVega, dancing in Hazmat suits and seemingly making crystal meth, the judges loved how they paid tribute to “Breaking Bad” with their dance.

Carrie Ann Inaba exclaimed, “That was genius.” Guest judge Alfonso Ribeiro, who won Season 19 of “Dancing With The Stars,” felt they were “fantastic” and that Ballas and PenaVega “can win” the entire competition. Julianne Hough told PenaVega and Ballas, “You were a team.” And Bruno Tonioli said, “Absolutely nothing was bad about that. I was totally transfixed.” He added, “You looked like two professionals.”

So, how did the pair do this third week? PenaVega and Ballas received a score of 36 out of 40 from the judges. Each judge awarded them a near perfect 9. Check out the video below of Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas’ jazz dance to the theme of “Breaking Bad” on “Dancing With The Stars,” and tell us what you think!
