Artem Chigvintsev is absolutely killing it in his debut season as a pro dancer on Dancing With The Stars.
Last night Artem and Lea did a contemporary dance during the show’s fourth week and boy was it an emotional one. They danced to Luther Vandross’ hit Dance With My Father which Lea dedicated to her own father who died from cancer in 2003.
The routine floored the judges and had Lea and Artem shedding tears by the end of it. They scored an impressive 39 out of 40 for their dance – they missed a perfect score thanks to the American public only giving them a 9! Seriously?! – and have sailed through to week 5.
