Morris and her substitute partner, Alan Bersten, hit the dance floor to perform a tango set to Britney Spears' hit "Toxic," and the talented star hit all the right beats to make the audience go wild, and to finally get some positive feedback from the judges.

Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles and her partner, Sasha Farber, later also earned a nine for their quickstep set to "Viva Las Vegas," -- for a total score of 32 out of 40 -- while figure skater Nancy Kerrigan and partner Artem Chigvintsev earned a nine for their samba set to Ricky Martin's "Shake Your Bon Bon."
However, the highest score of the night went to Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei, whose foxtrot to Shirley Bassey's "Hey Big Spender" earned her and pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy two nines for an impressive 34 out of 40.
