Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas did a “magical” Viennese waltz on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” The two performed to Mindy Gledhill’s “Anchor.” Watch the video below of their “Most Memorable Year” routine.

As Gossip Cop has been noting for a few weeks now, Stirling is one of the frontrunners on Season 25 of “Dancing With The Stars.” For the most part she’s been either at the top of the leaderboard or very close to after every show. The violinist had the highest score following her very first dance and reclaimed the lead again last week, thanks to her “brilliant” jive with Ballas.

Dressed in pajamas, she and her dancing partner began their routine last week in bed. And by the end of their performance, not only were they back in it, but they also put their competitors to bed with their superior dance. Following the jive, Len Goodman declared, “That was the dance of the season!”

Goodman wasn’t alone in praising the pair. Carrie Ann Inaba said she couldn’t believe how Stirling gets “strong” with each performance. And Bruno Tonioli simply felt the dance was nothing short of “brilliant.” For their efforts they received straight 9s from the judges for a season high score of 27 out of a possible 30 points.

The pressure was on Lindsey and Ballas to once again deliver, and they did with their Viennese waltz. Tonioli offered, “It was gorgeous and magical.” He further called it “moving and inspiring.” Inaba said, “I want to thank you” because it makes her thankful for her job and what she and her colleagues do. And Goodman remarked, “It was great. I loved it.” For their performance, they were awarded 26 out of 30 points. Check out the video below of Stirling and Ballas’s routine to Mindy Gledhill’s “Anchor.”
