Last night on Dancing With the Stars, >Paige VanZant and her partner Mark Ballas nailed a flawless routine, scoring a perfect 30 out of 30 points to propel them into a tie for first place.  For “Icons Night,” the duo performed an intensely fast “jive” dance to a rendition of ‘Proud Mary’ by Tina Turner, and left the audience roaring with applause. The UFC star and DWTS sensation narrowly avoided elimination last week, but was able to defend her standing as this season’s frontrunner with her spectacular showing last night. Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy also scored a 30 out of 30 last night. Two more couples were eliminated. Follow VanZant and Ballas, along with the other contestants, each week on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
