Vanessa Lachey dazzled again on “Dancing With The Stars.” On Monday’s show, which was themed “Guilty Pleasures,” Lachey and substitute partner Alan Bersten performed a “terrific” jazz routine to Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” Watch the video below of Lachey’s dance.

While her husband was on the verge of elimination last week, Lachey shined during both days of competition. On Monday’s Ballroom Night, she tied for first place with 24 out of 30 points for her foxtrot. Carrie Ann Inaba exclaimed, “You’re a superstar!” And Bruno Tonioli felt “it could not be foxier.”

The following night had Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy did a salsa on “Dancing With The Stars.” After her routine on Latin Night, Len Goodman called the TV personality a “contender,” while Tonioli expressed that she “outshone” her dance partner, Maksim Chmerkovsky. For that performance, she received 23 out of 30 points.

Before Monday’s show, Lachey’s thoughts, like many others, were with the families of those affected by the violence in Los Vegas. Rather than posting the numbers to vote for her on “Dancing With The Stars,” Lachey used her Instagram account to post the number for people “looking for loved ones” in the aftermath of the shooting. She also included information for those wishing to donate blood in Las Vegas.

For Lachey, though, the show had to go on, and it did even without her regular partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who was not on because of a “personal” reason. During Monday’s “Guilty Pleasures” show, the host admitted that she loves singing karaoke. Following her jazz routine to “Girls Just Want To Have Fun,” Goodman remarked, “Everybody had fun watching it.” He added, “I thought it was a terrific routine. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it.” Tonioli said, “I absolutely love it.” “You were fantastic,” added Inaba. For it, she received 23 out of 30 points.
