Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Get Only Double Perfect Score on Dancing with the Stars Semifinals — WATCH HERE!
The frontrunners received their first 40 for the jive, and another 40 for their mesmerizing Viennese waltz — beating Amy Purdy and Derek Hough for the night by just one point.
Bruno Tonioli and guest judge Kenny Ortega gave standing ovations for their “impeccable” jive, with Carrie Ann Inaba calling the routine “flawless and perfect.”
After the waltz, Len Goodman told the pair, “You went for it 100 percent, and I loved it.”
Tonioli labeled the couple “unbelievable,” Ortega said they showcased “power, grace, synchronization — everything you can ask for in a partnership,” and Inaba said the duo was “incredible.”
“It was a beautiful explosion,” she added.
Now safely in the finals, Davis and Chmerkovskiy will compete next week for the Mirror Ball trophy, which would mark the pro’s very first win on the series.
