Simone Biles and Sasha Farber impressed the audience and judges on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars” with their foxtrot to One Direction’s song “What Makes You Beautiful.” Watch the video below of their performance during the quarterfinals.

Last week, Biles’s Charleston on “Dancing With The Stars” left her tied for second place with a score of 37 out of 40 points. Len Goodman called it “a lot for fun,” while Bruno Tonioli felt it was “very entertaining.” “It’s just a joy to watch you,” added Carrie Ann Inaba. And guest judge choreographer Mandy Moore praised the Olympic gold medalist for being “an incredible performer.”

Although she’s danced solidly throughout the season, Biles’ status as the frontrunner has been challenged the past few weeks by Normani Kordei. It’s unclear whether her teammate Laurie Hernandez winning last season’s “Dancing With The Stars” has helped or hurt Biles, since the former was a clear favorite to win at this point in the competition when she was on the dance show. Regardless, now is the time for Biles to strike.

And for her performance this week, Goodman remarked, “That was great… Full of youthful exuberance.” “Well done,” he added. Inaba felt, “Your skills are undeniable.” Tonioli offered, “You make it look so easily.” And Julianne Hough said, “You are so talented.” For her foxtrot to One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” during the quarterfinals, Biles received a total of 36 out of 40 points. To see her and Farber’s routine before their trio dance, watch the video below.
