'Genius' performance has 'DWTS' fans and judges losing their minds

·2 min read

It was a horror-themed night on Monday’s Dancing With the Stars and former NBA star Iman Shumpert and partner Daniella Karagach managed to pull off a contemporary dance that was not only frightening — it was inspired by the 2019 horror flick Us — it was also frighteningly good.

With a remix for the song “I Got 5 on It” as the backdrop, Shumpert and Karagach danced a very partner-intensive dance that saw her climbing up and walking on him as he carried her around the dance floor. When the performance ended, as host Tyra Banks noted, everyone in the building was giving a standing ovation.

Viewers watching at home were blown away by the performance, and took to social media with their reactions. Some called it the best routine on the show “ever,” while others encouraged anyone and everyone to watch it.

But viewers weren’t the only ones who loved the dance. Judge Derek Hough jumped up onto the table in a show of excitement, while Bruno Tonioli called it their “masterpiece performance.” And Carrie Ann Inaba bowed to them with an “I’m not worthy” gesture, all on their way to giving the pair a perfect 40 for their score.

“Holy cow! That was genius. That was genius,” Inaba said. “You transported us to another world. My mind was blown. It was sheer perfection. The way you guys matched and danced as one, it was like, yes!”

Dancing With the Stars airs weeknights at 8 p.m. on ABC.
