Laurie Hernandez Shines on DWTS!

Excitement filled the gymnastics world as it was announced that the “human emoji” (otherwise known as Laurie Hernandez) announced that she would be joining the hit television series, “Dancing With the Stars” for the 23rd season. However, even more excitement filled the gymnastics world as soon as Laurie cha cha-ed her way to tie for number one on the ranks after the first round of the dance competition TV show. Just minutes after Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte was verbally attacked by protesters, Laurie was forced to perform. Ryan’s mishap didn’t face the young teenager though. Laurie deals with this kind of stuff all the time in gymnastics, typically going after an injured athlete, and so this didn’t faze her. She went out their, had a great time and rocked her performance. We can’t wait to see what Laurie can do in the next episode of “Dancing With the Stars”. Below, you can find Laurie’s routine from Monday night (with partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy):

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more! 🙂
