It’s Disney week on Dancing With the Stars starting with Monday’s Heroes Night, where the history-making same-sex duo of JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson danced to the Cinderella song “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” complete with Siwa dressed as Prince Charming.
Viewers on Twitter absolutely loved the moment, with one person calling it "one of the best in the history" of the show. While others were quick to point out the performance was even better because it happened on an extra special day: National Coming Out Day.

And their dance certainly charmed the judges, three of whom awarded Siwa with the first scores of nine this season. Len Goodman gave them an eight.
However, the high scores weren’t done there. Olivia Jade ended up tying Siwa’s score of 35 points later in the show, with her dance to "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" from The Lion King. But it was actually the former star of The Office, Melora Hardin, who turned some serious heads dancing a Jungle Book-themed two-step to the song "I Wanna Be Like You."

Hardin received straight nines from the judges for the highest score of the night, in what was a bit of a shocker for viewers watching on Twitter. But it led judge Bruno Tonioli to heap high praise on the actress.
“She's becoming the queen of the ballroom!” Tonioli said.
