Bruno Tonioli says she burned the floor, while Carrie Ann Inaba points out that she got out of sync at a few points. Len Goodman says it was filled with “vim, vigor and vitality” and Julianne Hough adds that the dance was beautiful. They score a 29.

According to ABC, Biles, 19, “is already considered one of the best and most decorated gymnasts in the history of the sport. She was adopted by her grandparents at a young age, and they have been a major influence in her life, introducing her to the sport of gymnastics. She was always jumping around at a young age and was introduced to the sport on a school field trip to Bannon’s Gymnastix at the age of six. While she trains close to 35 hours per week, Biles knows how to keep things fun and is known for inventing new skills during training.”
