Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei owned the dance floor like a warrior princess as she and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy earned a near perfect score on a Disney-themed episode of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
The pair nailed their paso doble set to “I’ll Make a Man out of You,” from the film Mulan. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba praised the performance as “epic.” It was “perfection,” she said of the dance, which received 39 out of 40 points.
Once again, Kordei’s sharp high kicks were a sight to behold as she twirled around the dance floor showing off what she described as “combat choreography” with an assist from Season Nine champion Donny Osmond on vocals.
“Look at her, the fierce all conquering paso princess,” said the always colorful Bruno Tonioli. “Power, attack, precision, and yet you never lost artistry.”
Len Goodman enjoyed the “attack and spirit” of the dance while Julianne Hough said Kordei “showed every little girl out there that you can do anything you want.”
On Monday night’s episode, the show said goodbye to Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko. To keep the duo in the competition, Harmonizers have to hit the phone and dial 1 (800) 868-3410.
