Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev bounced back on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They performed a “beautiful” tango to Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman” on the show’s movies-themed night. Watch the video below of their routine.

Last week, Kerrigan, who has been among the stronger dancers this season, was in jeopardy of being eliminated. Shockingly, she and Heather Morris were in the bottom two. And even though the “Glee” star was the first competitor this season to receive a perfect score with her rumba, at the end of last week’s show, Morris was sent home and Kerrigan was spared so she could dance again.

During Week Six, Kerrigan had performed a paso doble that received praised and decent scores. About her performance, Carrie Ann Inaba said it was “spot-on.” Len Goodman called the Olympic skater a “terrific dancer.” And while Bruno Tonioli offered some criticism, guest judge Nick Carter exclaimed, “My mind is blown.”

This week Kerrigan stepped up her game again. Goodman offered, “That was a pretty good tango.” Tonioli felt it was “sophisticated” and the she dancer “better.” Inaba remarked, “You have blossomed the most.” “The footwork was beautiful,” added guest judge choreographer Mandy Moore. For Kerrigan’s tango, she got 36 out of a total 40 points. To see Kerrigan and Chigvintsev’s dance to Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman,” watch the video below.
