Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy were perfect again when they were joined by Maksim Chmerkovskiy for their trio samba on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” The three impressed the judges with their flawless dance together to Sergio Mendes’s “Magalenha.” Watch the video below.

It was essentially a Chmerkovskiy sandwich for Hernandez, who has been considered one of the show’s top performers with her partner Val. This time around, for their trio they were joined by his older brother Maksim, who was eliminated earlier in the season, along with Amber Rose. The trio samba was Hernandez’s second performance during the semifinals. Shortly beforehand, she danced a foxtrot with Val. For that routine, she was also awarded a perfect score of 30 out of 30 from the judges.

Of her trio dance, Carrie Ann Inaba exclaimed, “It was by far your best dance ever!” Julianne Hough said, “It was so amazing.” And Bruno Tonioli called it “deliciously theatrical.” For their performance, Hernandez and the Chmerkovskiy brothers received another 30 out of a total of 30 points.
