Nick Viall showed “improvement” on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” He and partner Peta Murgatroyd performed a tango to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” Watch the video below of their routine.

For the most part, the former “Bachelor” has been in the middle of the pack with his scores. Following his first routine on the “Dancing With The Stars” premiere, Carrie Ann Inaba nicely told Viall that he has “lot of potential,” while Julianne Hough was impressed with his “determination.” Last week, he came back with a dance that also received mixed reviews. Len Goodman called Viall’s foxtrot on “Dancing With The Stars” “hectic.” Bruno Tonioli told him to “relax” while doing the steps, and Hough offered, “Less is more.”

On “Vegas Night,” Viall did a better received tango to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” Of his routine, Goodman felt, “There was improvement,” and “It was better than last week.” Inaba said, “There was a calmness to you presence.” Meanwhile, Tonioli remarked that he “appreciate[d] the effort that was put into it.” And Hough noted, as opposed to last week, “You were so in control of the floor.”

For his performance, Viall received 26 out of 40 points. To see Viall and Murgatroyd’s routine to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” on “Dancing With The Stars,” watch the video below.
