Over the past three weeks, Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez has proved that she’s got the dancing chops it takes to make it to the end (and maybe even win) this season of “Dancing with the Stars.”

This is week, she and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy performed a dramatic tango — and it was absolutely perfect. Earlier this week, the 16-year-old talent mentioned that she was nervous about tapping into the emotion it takes to make a tango powerful, but her performance was chock-full of passion, strength and that emotion she thought she’d be missing.

The flawless routine earned the pair 31 out of 40 points, placing them second after Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Arnold.
