Victoria Arlen and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy amazed everyone again on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They impressed with their tango to Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” on “Ballroom Night.” Watch the video below of their routine.

Arlen blew away the audience and the judges during the show’s premiere last week with her cha cha to Disco Fries’s “Good Time Good Life.” As previously noted, because of two rare conditions, for 10 years the ESPN sportscaster was paralyzed, and for four of those years she was in a vegetative state from which few thought she’d ever emerge. But she did, and while still partially paralyzed she went on to become a gold medal-winning Paralympic swimmer. It was only a year ago that Arlen started walking again, though she still cannot feel anything in her legs.

And incredibly last week, Arlen hit the dance floor and was fantastic, resulting in the audience giving her as standing ovation. But it wasn’t just fans who were impressed. Carrie Ann Inaba said, “I’ve seen some incredible routines on this show…That was one of the joyous performances I think I’ve ever seen.” The judge further praised, “Your balance was incredible. Your leg action was so crisp and clean… There’s something spectacular about you.” “Well done,” echoed Len Goodman. For her effort, she received 19 out of 30 points.

For her tango this week, Goodman said, “I thought that was a super duper dance.” Inaba added, “Every single movement looked so polished.” And Bruno Tonioli expressed that “it was very well executed.” For Arlen and Chmerkovskiy’s second routine of the season, they got 24 out of 30 points. To see their tango to “Look What You Made Me Do” by Taylor Swift on Ballroom Night, watch the video below.
