Skai Jackson earned the top score of the season so far during her latest performance on Dancing With the Stars!
The 18-year-old Disney Channel star performed a Foxtrot set to the tune of John Legend‘s “Ordinary People” on Monday night (October 5) at the studio in Los Angeles.
Skai told her partner Alan Bersten that she was dedicating the dance to her late Jessie co-star Cameron Boyce, who died last year.
“I want this dance to be dedicated to Cameron, who was a really close friend of mine and co-star,” Skai said. “He was in my life for half of my life, which was crazy. We built up this bond for years and years and years.”
“He molded me into the person I am now. Of course I miss him every day, but I have him on my phone case so I get to see him,” she added through tears. ” It’s sad he’s not here to see it … I know that he would be really proud of me. He loved Dancing With the Stars and dancing.”
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba gave the performance a 10, marking the first 10 of the season. The other judges gave her 9s, so she earned a 28 overall. That’s the best score so far this season!
There was a big mix-up during the elimination portion of the night.
