To say that Artem Chigvintsev is making a big impression on his debut season as a pro on Dancing With The Stars would be an understatement.
The hunky Russian dancer performed on the second live show of the series last night with his partner, actress Lea Thompson and they wowed the judges with their Jive. Scoring 35 out of 40, the couple ended up topping the leaderboard for the evening which surely means they’ll be sailing through to week 3.
Last week Artem and Lea scored 32 out of 40 for their Foxtrot and their scores are definitely heading in the right direction. 35 out of 40 for week 2 is pretty remarkable and we’re excited to see what the couple do for Movie Week next week.
Earlier this week Artem became a US citizen and after his performance last night, the fellow celebs and pros waved US flags in celebration.
