Dancing With the Stars 2013 Season 17, Week 2 had a lot of Latin flair tonight, Monday, September 23, and Elizabeth Berkley and Val Chmerkovskiy kicked off the night with their Samba.

Their moves were perfectly in sync as they shimmied and shook all over the ballroom floor, spinning, twirling, and having fun while still maintaining sharp, crisp movements. The judges loved the performance, and we even saw Steven Tyler cheering from the audience! “That was so close, it was absolutely fantastic,” Len raved, praising her because “Samba is tough!”

Bruno agreed, appreciating her timing, speed, and coordination, then Carrie Ann called her a “strong, sensuous dancer” who is in control of her body. Bruno and Carrie Ann awarded them 8s, Len gave them a 9, and they ended with an impressive score of 25!
