Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy danced a perfect freestyle routine to Nat King Cole’s “Orange Colored Sky” during the finals of “Dancing With The Stars.” Watch the video below.

During last week’s semifinals, Zee received respectable scores but not nearly as strong as those by Nyle DiMarco and Paige VanZant. For her quickstep, Len Goodman exclaimed, “The is no ‘I’ in team, but there is an ‘I’ in ‘Ginger’ and ‘Fantastic.’” And for her trio dance with partner Val Chmerkovskiy and Artem Chigvintsev, Bruno Tonioli loved the meteorologist’s routine, calling it “intense and surreal.” Despite lower scores last week, Zee remains a contender for the crown this season, having consistently been on the top of the leaderboard and earning this season’s first perfect score.

For her finals freestyle dance, Goodman said, “Tonight you’ve show your versatility,” pointing out she also performed a great jazz routine earlier in the evening. Carrie Ann Inaba they were terrific, as well. And Tonioli called her freestyle routine, “I absolutely adore this number.” He added, “It had the classic Hollywood musical look.”

Zee and Chmerkovskiy’s routine to Nat King Cole’s “Orange Colored Sky” earned them 30 out of 30 points. Check out the video below of Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy’s freestyle dance during the finals.
