Bindi Irwin and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy blew away the competition on “Switch Up” night with their cha cha routine to Jess Glynne’s “Hold My Hand Back” on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” Watch the video below.

While most stars had a hard time switching up partners, Irwin seamlessly went from Derek Hough for Chmerkovskiy, and the judges and audience loved their performance. Guest judge Maksim Chmerkovskiy exclaimed, “I loved it,” noting it was “the best [dance] of the night.” He added, “I smiled the entire time.” Bruno Tonioli said, “You lift my spirit like a bright summer day.” He further told Irwin that her “foot placement was immaculate.”

Carrie Ann Inaba praised Irwin: “You took yourself to another level… I saw a new flair, a whole new level of confidence.” And Julianne Hough felt, “Regardless of who you dance with, you are Bindi, and you are a ray of sunshine.”

So, how did Irwin and Val Chmerkovskiy do during the fifth week? They received a score of 37 out of 40 from the judges. The three regular judges gave them 9s, while guest judge Maksim Chmerkovskiy gave them a perfect 10.
