Judges comments on Laurie Hernandez’s DWTS Season 23 Finale Freestyle:
Bruno: Laurie my darling, the playground! So much energy you can send a rocket ship to the moon. It was the embodiment of the spirit of youth, I feel invigorated and joyful, I want to join in. You are just fantastic my darling.
Carrie Ann: Val, you captured her essence beautifully, Laurie what you did was you delivered. I didn’t have any doubt that you were going to be incredible, but I didn’t know you would be so uplifting. You brought tears to my eyes because I was so happy. You are inspiring, you have this burden on you to inspire the kids of America, and I want to tell you that freestyle featured that essence and delivered it with a bang.
Len: It was fantastic, I loved it. It was just a joyful experience to watch it. I was there with you on the playground and I was 12 years old again, just having a fantastic time. It was wonderful!
Julianne: Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of awesome! That was incredible, it was so fresh and youthful and crisp. And, you are wearing my favorite color which is yellow and sunshine, and I’m with them I can’t talk.
