Dassy Lee performed live on “So You Think You Can Dance” for the first time with All-Star Fik-Shun on Monday. Watch the video below!

Lee has been one of season 14’s frontrunners since her audition, where she wowed the judges with a routine filled with pop and locking. She even confessed that she moved to the United States from South Korea just to audition for the FOX dance competition. Then, during the Academy Week, the aspiring star also proved her mettle in various other styles, including contemporary and ballroom.

To make the Top 10, Dassey had to outlast roughly 90 other contestants, including three others with whom Fik-Shun wanted to work. But he could choose only one dancer to participate in the live competition. And, as revealed tonight, he chose her over fellow contender Kyle Benner Jr. Now for their first time on the new “So You Think You Can Dance” stage, they were the first pair to perform during the live broadcast. They chose to perform a hip-hop routine set to Cameo’s “Shake Your Pants.”

Mary Murphy exclaimed afterward, “I loved it! I mean c’mon, what a way to get this show started!” The returning judge said she was “so excited for this partnership,” and admitted, “Fik-Shun, you have finally found your match. I never thought I would say that.” Murphy went on, “Dassey, you are a hard-hitting ‘it’ girl. You are amazing, and the two of you together, the chemistry is unreal… It’s just going to get better and better. You’re my poppin’ favorite and you’re poppin’ in to my heart.”

“You had more body parts moving than I realized was in a person’s body,” Nigel Lythgoe amusingly said. He told Dassey, “You left your home in Seoul, Korea to come and dance soul on ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’ See what I did there? And you made the show stronger for it. I think you’re going to be one of the favorite couples to watch.” He also reminded everyone that Fik-Shun is the reigning All-Star winner, having come in first place last season with “The Next Generation” contestant Kida.

And Vanessa Hudgens said she agreed with both Murphy and Lythgoe. “That was absolutely fantastic. So explosive, so dynamic. I’m so excited to see you do more,” she told the pair. Check out the video below!
