If you haven’t been keeping up with Dancing With the Stars, you’ve been missing Alfonso Ribeiro show off his dancing skills. Most of us already knew that Ribeiro could tap-dance, and his “Carlton” dance is pretty much legendary, but to see him do the cha-cha and the samba has made for extraordinary viewing this season.

On Monday Ribeiro showed the DWTS judges that he’s truly the GOAT when he danced not with one partner but with two. Ribeiro and his partner, Witney Carson, teamed up with troupe dancer Lindsay Arnold for something that can only be described as amazing. The trio danced their paso doble to “Turn Down for What,” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon, and scored a perfect score.

“Two syllables: Da-yum. That was insane,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba told the trio.

Len Goodman added, “I couldn’t say I was a fan of the song, but I was a real fan of that paso doble.”


And Julianne Hough gave kudos. “Nailed it!” she told them. “That was amazing. The Matrix has nothing on y’all,” Hough continued.

Bruno Tonioli screamed, “It was like a galactic ringmaster chasing the space vixens. What a ride! The ride of the night.”

Ribeiro’s skills have advanced him to the semifinals of DWTS, and let’s just say, if he doesn’t win, many people will be demanding a recount!
