Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas impressed the judges and audience on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They nailed a “brilliant” jive to Wham!’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.” Watch the video below of their routine on “Guilty Pleasures” night.

Stirling is certainly one of the top contenders to take home the Mirrorball Trophy this season. The violinist has consistently had among the highest scores for her routines. In fact, she kicked off the premiere of this season’s “Dancing With The Stars” in the top spot. Len Goodman declared after that performance that it was “the dance of the night.”

While Stirling faired well last week on Ballroom Night with a quickstep that again Goodman “loved,” she wasn’t in the top two with her score of 21 out of 30 points. But the musician came back strong on Tuesday’s Latin Night. Bruno Tonioli said Stirling and Ballas’ salsa on “Dancing With The Stars” left him “breathless.” And Carrie Ann Inaba called Stirling “amazing.” For that dance, she earned a total of 24 out of 30 points.

Like others, as opposed to using her Instagram on Monday to promote her appearance on “Dancing With The Stars,” Stirling instead posted a photo of the Las Vegas strip with the caption, “My heart breaks for those effected. I know what it feels like to lose loved ones and it is an indescribable pain.” She added, “Let us begin to cure hate today by being a little kinder and showing more love in our daily interactions.”

As for her routine on Monday’s “Guilty Pleasures” show, Stirling was outstanding. Inaba said she thought Stirling gets “stronger” every week. Meanwhile, Tonioli felt Stirling was “brilliant.” And Goodman exclaimed, “That was the dance of the season!” For it, Stirling received a total of 27 out of 30 points. Check out the video below of Stirling and Ballas’s jive to Wham!’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.”
