Nelly finally had his wow moment on October 12's episode of 'Dancing With the Stars' that was dedicated to the glorious '80s. Even though Nelly wasn't the highest scored performer of the evening, he wasn't the lowest and the hip hop star had the judges as well as fans eating out of his hands tonight as he took to the dance floor with his partner, pro-dancer Daniella Karagach.

Nelly was on a different level altogether on Monday night's episode. The ever-smiling music artiste looked a little more confident during his performance, as compared to the past and it was clear that he'd taken into account all of the critiques he received from judges. His body posture, the rhythm, the musicality in his performance, everything was almost perfect and all his hard work paid off when the judges didn't hold back on praising him. He was truly happy in this episode and we are not sure if it was the '80s theme or something else, but it totally worked in Nelly's favor and fans are happy to see the transformation.

"That samba showed that Nelly hiding some phenomenal rhythm. Yo, my eyes almost popped out of my head. If he continues to let loose he could be sneaky good. #dwts," tweeted a fan. "Started watching #DWTS to see how big of a train wreck Carol Baskin was, but here I am clapping in my living room because Nelly killed the samba. 2020 has taken some weird turns and this is definitely one of them," read another tweet.
