Fresh off an 11-hour flight from Japan, Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei swooped onto the Dancing with the Stars dance floor for an invigorating cha-cha routine with partner Val Chmerkovskiy on Monday night’s episode (March 27).

Shimmering in gold, Kordei and Chmerkovskiy scored 32 points out of 40 for the routine set to Sigala’s “Give Me Your Love.”

Even though Chmerkovskiy said that learning new routines while traveling put the pair under “a lot of pressure,” neither showed signs of jet lag as Kordei impressed with a well-placed kick.

Judge Julianne Hough was so impressed, she said she “wants to dance” with Kordei, and added “you’re amazing.”

“I guess the key to looking amazing is flying to Japan,” Hough said.

Carrie Ann Inaba praised the duo, particularly Kordei, who she called a “superstar,” “dazzling,” and “sexy.”  “That was truly dancing with a star,” she said. “Brilliant.”
