From bad stumble to impressive tumble!
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi earned her highest score on "Dancing With the Stars" the season, thanks to an impressive one-handed cartwheel!
What made the move even more impressive was she and her professional partner Sasha Farber held hands while cartwheeling! The end of their Charleston to "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" routine was just as impressive. Check it out above.
Their dance earned them an impressive 25 points out of 30, five points higher than their previous effort.
The other memorable performance of the night belonged to Bill Nye and his partner Tyne Stecklein.
The Science Guy suffered a badly torn tendon in his quadriceps after falling at the end of last week's performance. The doctor recommend that he not dance this week or risk further injury.
Bill wanted to compete, and he and Tyne came up with the innovative idea for him to play a robot. Despite Bill having one leg immobilized, they still put on an entertaining performance.
Unfortunately, their lack of technical content landed them on the bottom of this week's leaderboard (along with Valerie Harper and Tristan MacManus). When the viewer vote was added, Bill and Tyne were sent home.
