It was Switch Up Week where the dancers had to swap their dance partners, but it didn’t seem to matter as Bindi Irwin showed she can shine whether it’s alone or with someone else.
Her usual dance partner Derek Hough was paired with another star, and Bindi with reigning champion Val Chmerkovskiy.
Bindi looks so happy as she danced the cha-cha in a bright yellow outfit, which got her a near-perfect score – one 10 and three 9s for a total of 37 out of 40.
Earlier this week Bindi was seen with an anaconda, though it did not make an appearance as it was purely to shock her new dance partner at their rehearsals.
Guest judge Maksim Chmerkovskiy praised Bindi’s performance, saying “It was the dance of the night”. He gave Bindi a 10!

“You lift my spirits like a bright summer’s day, you are the essence of joy”, said fellow judge Bruno Tonioli, 59.
The pair danced to Jess Glynne’s hit song Hold My Hand and was truly delightful.
Before the show, Bindi shared a post on Instagram saying, ‘I can’t even believe this wardrobe! Had to share it with you. Tonight’s show is filled with sparkle. I’m super excited, thank you again and again for your love and support. I’m grateful every day to be part of the @dancingabc Season 21 family’.
