Vanessa Lachey and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy gave another strong performance on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They nailed their foxtrot to “Hit Me With A Hot Note” by Tami Tappan Damiano on “Ballroom Night.” Watch the video below of their routine.

Last week on the season’s premiere, Lachey finished in third place, thanks to her lively cha cha to “Woman” by Kesha. While leaders Jordan Fisher and Lindsey Stirling tied for first with 22 out of 30 points, Lachey was right behind with 21 points, having received straight 7s from each of the judges.

Following her routine, Bruno Tonioli explained, “What I really like about what you did, it was a proper cha cha cha.” He particularly liked her legwork and added, “You maintained your posture.” Noting how Lachey is also competing against her husband, Len Goodman warned, “Nick, watch out! Vanessa can dance.”

Prior to Monday’s show, a pumped up Lachey took to Instagram to share a clip from last week. Next to it, she wrote, “Mama tryin to get her groove back… and it feels so good! Last we we did the Cha Cha! I had sooo much FUN! This week is the FoxTrot! I hope you Love it and VOTE!”

So what did the judges think about her foxtrot? Goodman simply said, “Well done.” Inaba added, “You’re a superstar… Your movements are stunning. Everything was so polished.” And Tonioli felt, “For a foxtrot, it could not be foxier.” For Lachey and Chmerkovskiy’s second dance of the season, they got 24 out of a total of 30 points.
