Calvin Johnson and his partner Lindsay Arnold wowed the judges and audience alike on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They danced a charleston on the show’s “Cirque du Soleil” night. Watch the video below.

Last week, Johnson had the highest score of all the dancers during “Face Off” night. He and Arnold received 32 out of 40 points. No one has scored more than that this entire season. The former football star danced a Viennese Waltz to beat Terra Jole and Sasha Farber.

Johnson has been one of this season’s stronger competitors. For his cha cha during the premiere, he got 26 out of 40 points. And in the second week of competition, Johnson and Arnold received 28 out of a total of 40 points on “TV Night” for their foxtrot to the“Family Matters” theme song.

For his charleston on Monday, which featured performers and acrobats from the Cirque du Soleil show “Kurios,” Carrie Ann Inaba said, “Your lifts were impressive” and “footwork was fantastic.” Julianne Hough remarked that the charleston is about being light on one’s toes, and “you completely nailed that.” And Bruno Tonioli thought his “timing was excellent.”

As a result, Johnson and Arnold received a total of 23 out of 30 points. Watch the video below of Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Arnold dancing against the backdrop of the Cirque du Soleil show “Kurios” on “Dancing With The Stars.”
