Dancing contemporary to the version of “I Got 5 On It” from Jordan Peele’s Us, Iman Shumpert nailed his performance with his professional dance partner Daniella Karagach on Horror Night for Dancing with the Stars.
Embodying a terrifying stare, the pair floated effortlessly throughout the dance floor executing acrobatic dance moves causing the judges to rave. Clad in red jumpsuits, the pair’s movements were both fluid and creepy.
Bruno Tonioli called it "a masterpiece performance.”
“I’m speechless,” Derek Hough announced while trying to give the pair a score greater than 10. “That was something people are going to watch over and over and over again.”
“Holy cow! That was genius. That was genius,” Carrie Ann Inaba opined. “You transported us to another world. My mind was blown. It was sheer perfection. The way you guys matched and danced as one, it was like, yes!”
