Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy did a jazz routine to Janet Jackson’s “Nasty” on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” This week’s theme was “Famous Dance,” and the dancing pair nicely recreated Jackson’s performance from her music video. Watch the video below.

Last week, during the “Switch Up” with Mark Ballas, Zee fared nicely, but not as well as she has in the past with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. Still, she posted better than average scores. For the most part, Zee has done well on “Dancing With The Stars.” During the season premiere and on “Disney Night,” Zee topped the leaderboard. She also danced solidly on the weeks that were themed “Latin Night” and “Most Memorable Year.”

For Zee and Chmerkovskiy’s jazz dance, Carrie Ann Inaba said, “You are so well rehearsed,” which she liked. Len Goodman felt, “It was clean and precise. Overall, it was more tasty than nasty.” And Tonioli expressed, “It was Janet in the best possible taste.” Still, each felt should could have brought more attitude, like Janet Jackson, to the dance

Zee and Chmerkovskiy received a total of 24 out of 30 points. Check out the video below of Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy’s “Famous Dance” performance to Janet Jackson’s “Nasty” on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.”
