Justina Machado used her last performance to send a strong message as she danced to 'Let's Get Loud' by Jennifer Lopez
Justina Machado has always set the stage on fire with her performance, and the 'Dancing With The Stars' season finale on November 23 was no different. Justina and her partner Sasha Farber danced to 'Let's Get Loud' by Jennifer Lopez for their final dance. The pair made sure they paid their due respect to Justina's Latin culture.
Throughout the show, Justina has been vocal about her struggles and how she rose from the ashes to make a name for herself in the industry. She even shed light on how she was a 48-year-old who was letting people know that age is just a number when it comes to chasing dreams.
Keeping this in mind, Justina made sure her last performance was worth remembering. She decided to bring her best moves to the dance floor. Fans were mesmerized by the introduction of her dance as she chose the segment to shed light on how one should not be defined by their age, culture or the place they come from.
Justina made it loud and clear that there was more to her than people had seen. Once the dance continued, Sasha joined Justina, and the two brought in their best moves. The song and the dance even made the judges groove to the music. Bruno Tonioli admitted her dance was a celebration of Latin culture.
He even referred to her dance as "tonic for the soul." Carrie Ann Inaba also applauded Justina for using her dance to send a strong message. Meanwhile, Derek Hough thought it was the best freestyle one could have hoped to have in the season finale. Fans were also in love with her performance.
Many quickly flooded social media with praises for her dance. "Justina dancing with herself??? iconic," read one comment. "Justina just stole the show!! Hands down best dance of the night. Loved her confidence!!" wrote another.
