Kristina and Vasily danced blindfolded and kissed in their routine before getting a standing ovation on the “So You Think You Can Dance” premiere on Monday. Watch the video below!

After focusing on kids for season 13’s “The Next Generation,” the FOX competition returned to its usual format for season 14. Gone are Paula Abdul, Jason Derulo and Maddie Ziegler. Back, as always, is Nigel Lythgoe, and joining him is a familiar face: Former judge Mary Murphy. Vanessa Hudgens is the newest addition to the panel.

The first auditions episode took place in Los Angeles, with each dancer hoping to win a ticket to the show’s dance academy. Among those leading the new crop of aspiring stars was 26-year-old Kristina and her 30-year-old husband Vasily. Before officially starting their performance, he put on a blindfold and then executed the moves flawlessly without the benefit of sight.

Partway through the dance, Kristina removed his bindfold, and they embraced in a kiss as he spun her in the air. “It’s okay, everybody! They’re married!” Lythgoe quipped. At the conclusion, the couple received a standing ovation, with the head judge deeming their routing “Fifty Shades Of Dance!” He gushed, “Absolutely stunning. One of the best routines I’ve ever seen on the stage here.”

Murphy was wiping away tears, admitting, “That’s the first time I’ve cried over a ballroom routine in the history of this show.” She said their audition would make people “fall in love with ballroom dancing, and that’s what makes me cry.” Added Hudgens, “When you guys were kissing in that turn, my heart exploded… You guys are phenomenal!” Agreed Lythgoe, “This was something very, very special.” Check out the videos below!
