Amber Riley and Derek Hough excited everyone on Dancing With the Stars 2013 tonight, Monday, September 23 (Season 17, Week 2) with a fun Jive.

Though Amber was apprehensive at first, they were again perfectly in sync and mastered every move while still having fun with a little story and quick steps. Coming off an Emmy win on Sunday, Derek was even more animated than usual, dipping and twirling Amber around as they closed out the night. And she even ended in a cartwheel!

The judges loved them, though Carrie Ann noted she could use a little work on her flat feet. Len agreed, exclaiming, “You’re one big bundle of joy, but work on your footwork!” Bruno echoed those sentiments, saying, “Your footwork was a little bit flat for a Jive, but I’m telling you, irresistable.”

Ultimately, the duo scored 8s across the board, giving them 24 points.
