Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas wowed again on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars” with their perfect Argentine tango to Sevdaliza’s song “Human.” Their dance evoked the genre sci-fi on the night’s movie-themed episode. See their routine in the video below.

Stirling has consistently put in strong performances throughout season 25 of “Dancing With The Stars.” Unfortunately for the professional violinist, she’s had to play second (or third) fiddle to Jordan Fisher, who’s topped the leaderboard virtually every week. On two occasions, however, she tied Jordan for first place. Last Monday, Stirling landed again in the top three, thanks to her foxtrot to “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Disney’s Pinocchio.

Following her dance with Ballas, Bruno Tonioli described it as “Fred Astaire meets Disney.” Carrie Ann Inaba called it “classic” and praised the pair for their “beautiful, incredible dancing.” And Len Goodman felt it was “delightful” and voice how he “absolutely loved it.” As a result, Stirling received on perfect 10 and two 9s for a score of 28 out of 30.

She and Ballas were equally strong on Monday’s movie-themed night. About their Argentine tango to Sevdaliza’s “Human,” Inaba said, “You upped your game to something phenomenal.” Goodman offered, “I thought the dancing was brilliant.” He noted that he gave her a 10 last week and that she deserved it again. Tonioli exclaimed that it was a “superb Argentine tango” and “the best dance of the season.” And guest judge Shania Twain called it “elegant” and “graceful.” For their dance, they were awarded 40 out of a total of 40 points. Check out the video below of Stirling and Ballas’s dance this week.
