Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas dance next, performing a paso doble to “Roundtable Rival” by Lindsey Stirling. The violinist was nearly sidelined this week due to a painful rib injury that she sustained last week.

Carrie Ann Inaba calls Stirling a “beast,” adding that her movements and shapes were delivered with strength. Len Goodman says her aggression saved the dance, while Bruno Tonioli calls it “ambitious and intriguing.” He adds that all the elements worked together perfectly. They score a 27 out of 30.

Watch Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas’s Spine-Tingling Paso Doble

Things are getting creepy and kooky in the ballroom as the eight remaining couples celebrate “Halloween Night.” On Monday, the stars will dance a paso doble, jive, Charleston, tango, Viennese waltz or contemporary routine to capture the spirit of the scariest night of the year. Couples will also participate in team dances, lead by captains Drew Scott and Terrell Owens. An elimination will occur at the end of the night. Drew Scott and Emma Slater are currently at the bottom of the leaderboard with 30 out of 40 points. At the top of the leaderboard are Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas, who earned a perfect score for their sci-fi Argentine tango during “A Night at the Movies.”

“Dancing with the Stars” Social Media Reactions

According to ABC, Stirling “is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. An acclaimed violinist from Gilbert, AZ., she entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, using her classical violin training, to leap through the music industry with almost 10 million YouTube subscribers, over 1.9 billion views on her YouTube channel, two Billboard Music Awards, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide. She’s created a new music world where modern classical meets the infectious energy of dance and electronica.”

The star-studded lineup for the 25th season of “Dancing with the Stars” includes former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens, Hamilton’s Jordan Fisher and “Property Brothers” co-host Drew Scott. Other stars include Victoria Arlen, Nikki Bella and Frankie Muniz. Fan-favorite pros Mark Ballas and Cheryl Burke also return to the dance floor this season, along with hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.

The judging panel features Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Their scores, along with America’s votes, determine which couples will go home and which ones will advance to compete for the coveted Mirrorball trophy.

“Dancing with the Stars” airs every Monday night at 8 p.m. on ABC.
