Laurie Hernandez and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy ruled the ballroom once more on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” The two performed a perfect Viennese waltz to Jane Monheit’s “Pure Imagination” on Halloween. Watch the video below.

For a while, Hernandez was the odds-on favorite to win this season’s “Dancing With The Stars,” having sat at the top of the leader board week after week. And while she’s hardly stumbled, the Olympic gold medalist has failed to earn the highest scores for the past few weeks. Still, last week on “Eras Night,” Julianne Hough praised Hernandez’s routine, which she called “amazing.” Bruno Tonioli added, “You really light up the room.” And while Len Goodman noted that she “rushed” her routine, overall he said Hernandez did a “good job.

This week the Olympian came back in full force. For her Viennese waltz, Carrie Ann Inaba said, “Your dancing was divine.” Hough felt it was “well done.” And Tonioli expressed, “That was truly a magical Halloween treat.” He added that it “brought tears to my eyes.” Hernandez and Chmerkovskiy received a total of 30 out of 30 points.
