Laurie Hernandez is a 16 year old American artistic gymnast, who is now shining on Dancing With The Stars along with three other athletes (IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe, Olympic swimmer/news cycle Ryan Lochte, and former NFL player Calvin Johnson)!
From the balance beam to the dance floor, Hernandez has joined forces with Val Chmerkovskiy for the shows 23rd season and she is slaying every single move. The gymnast brought her spice and skill to the season premiere performing the Cha Cha to “American Girl” by Bonnie Mckee. The couples performance blew the judges away, landing them in a tie for first place. We are pretty confident that Laurie will soon have the coveted mirror ball trophy sitting right next to her Olympic gold medal.
Go Laurie, Go! Catch season 23 of Dancing With The Stars every Monday on ABC at 8 PM ET/PT.
