Wanya Morris absolutely dominated the stage during the Dancing With the Stars semi-finals on Monday, delivering two flawless performances and earning two perfect scores -- but all of his effort ended up being in vain.
The Boyz II Men singer and season-long fan favorite kicked off his first of two dances with his partner, Lindsay Arnold, and fellow pro Witney Carson delivering a fiery, passionate paso doble set to the song "Explosive" by David Garrett, Franck Heijden and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
The intense routine elicited some of the most enthusiastic responses from the judges all season. Carrie Ann Inaba gave Morris a hug, while famously stoic Len Goodman actually rose from his seat to give the singer a standing ovation. Bruno Tonioli called the dance, which earned Morris a perfect 30 out of 30, "the comeback we've all been waiting for."
For their second dance of the night, Morris and Arnold delivered a fast-paced Charleston to Avicii's "Shame On Me" and the invigorating performance had everyone in the audience cheering throughout the number.
The judges continued to ride the praise train during their feedback for the singer's second dance, with Inaba telling Morris that he was "her hero tonight," and Goodman gushing, "If natural dance talent was in the dictionary, there would be a photograph of you."
While deaf model Nyle DiMarco, UFC fighter Paige VanZant and GMA weather anchor Ginger Zee are moving on to the finals, it's definitely going to be hard for some fans to see the Boyz II Men singer go home.
