Meryl Davis, Val Chmerkovskiy Get 10s for “Dance of the Night” on First-Ever DWTS Switch-Up — WATCH AMAZING VIDEO!

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss



Meryl Davis and Val Chmerkovskiy had an unbelievable night on Monday’s first-ever “Switch-Up” edition of “Dancing with the Stars.”

The Olympic gold medalist, who scored the first 10s of the season (three of them!) last week with normal partner Maks Chmerkovskiy, did it again with Val and their sexy Argentine Tango.

“That was the dance of the night,” declared Len Goodman. Guest judge Julianne Hough told Davis, “You are one of the most stunning, beautiful dancers I have ever seen. I would like to dance like you.”

Bruno Tonioli called the routine “powerful and seductive,” and said the couple was like “two magical instruments perfectly in tune.” And Carrie Ann Inaba exclaimed to the pair, “You two are in a class of your own. You are untouchable.”

With 39 out of 40, Davis had the highest score of the night — and the same score for the second week in a row, giving her two-week total of 78 out of 80. The points from both weeks will be combined with the votes from last week and tonight to determine next week’s elimination. Check out the video below!
