Laurie Hernandez, you’ve done it again!

The “human emoji” made her “Dancing with the Stars” debut on Monday night, and America fell in love with her all over again!

“So, we’re going to win this thing, right?” Hernandez asked partner Val Chmerkovskiy during their first meeting. She’s still feeling that winner’s high after coming off a successful Olympics in Rio!

“I love your ambition, yes!” he agreed.

For their first performance, Hernandez and Chmerkovskiy danced a sassy cha-cha to “American Girl” by Bonnie McKee.


Hernandez definitely proved she’s a natural as she pranced around the ballroom.

The judges were impressed by her moves as well. The pair scored an impressive 31 out of a possible 40 points, tying with race car driver James Hinchcliffe and his partner, Sharna Burgess.

“Dancing with the Stars” airs Mondays and Tuesdays (starting next week) at 8 p.m. on ABC.
