Laurie Hernandez had her fair share of critiques on Monday night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Hernandez took to the dance floor with a paso doble, one week after earning a perfect score for the first time in season 23 history.
She honored her Most Memorable Year, which she considered to be 2016, the year she represented the United States at the Olympic Games in Rio.
But during the rehearsals, Hernandez broke down to her partner.
Hernandez was able to pull it together and perform her paso doble, but it was clear that there was a problem.
Two of the judges didn’t feel like this was Hernandez’s best performance of the season. Judge Bruno Tonioli criticized her footwork throughout the performance.
“You feel out of a turn,” Carrie Anne Inaba added before the crowd started booing. “You are no doubt a warrior goddess!”
“I disagree. I thought that was fantastic,” Julianne Hough said. She applauded Hernandez and Val Chmerkovsiy for their work together but wanted to see more a connection between the pair.
Hernandez and Chmerkovskiy earned 25 out of a possible 30 points.
“Dancing with the Stars” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
