Carrie Ann Inaba says they need to take their dance to Broadway, praising their partnership. Len Goodman calls the dance “fantastic,” while Bruno Tonioli adds that it was “exquisitely theatrical.” They score a 30, the first perfect score of the season.

Rippon is an Olympic figure skater. According to ABC, “Adam won the hearts of America and the world at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Known for his refreshing candor and wit, his rise to fame on the global stage has provided him with a platform to speak out in support of LGBTQ rights and the freedom to be oneself. His passion and charm have made him an inspiration to young and old alike, and he has quickly become a role model and icon to millions.” He was the first openly gay U.S. athlete to compete in the Winter Olympics.

“Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” is hosted by Tom Bergeron and sports broadcaster Erin Andrews. The judging panel is composed of ballroom experts Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Their scores, along with America’s votes, determine who gets to stay and who is sent home as couples vie for the coveted Mirrorball trophy during the special, four-week season.

The finalists are Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, NFL star Josh Norman and former figure skater Tonya Harding.
