Just hours ago ABC's hit reality show, 'Dancing with the Stars' blessed its fans and audience with the episode 3 of season 27, and boy - was that some episode! With performances peaking to the levels of what one would expect at the semi-finals, and shockingly improved skills shown by the stars - the third episode was a blast.

Granted there were some shaky stars back in the premiere episode that aired last Monday, but just two weeks in and the contestants are shaping up. There weren't any eliminations in the New York City-themed episode, but there were definitely certain performances that just weren't up to the mark. So before Tuesday night's episode - which will be a tribute to Las Vegas - announces the contestant leaving the show, here are some of the highlights from episode 3.

Milo Manheim and his pro-partner, Witney Carson delivered one of the most energetic and entertaining Charleston to "Living in New York City" by Robin Thicke. Despite Milo having delivered a rather impressive performance last week in the premiere episode, other better performances had managed to overshadow his. But not this time. This time saw Milo stepping into the spotlight and owning it like a boss. The moves were impeccable and his partner, Witney's creativity was brimming throughout the performance. The whopping 26/30 was well deserved!

 

Milo tied the highest score of the night spot with Tinashe, and her pro-partner, Brandon Armstrong - who performed an Argentine Tango to "New Dorp. New York" by SBTRKT featuring Ezra Koenig. Packed with the craziest airlifts ever. Even though Tinashe could do with a little more connection with both her partner and the stage and performance in general, it doesn't invalidate how she has managed to hold her position in the top scorers since last week. Still, they managed a brilliant 26/30 and now all they have to figure out in their routine is a pinch of chemistry!

There was a third person to tie on the first spot and that was none other than Juan Pablo Di Pace and his pro-partner, Cheryl Burke, who did the Quickstep to "42nd Street" by Cherry Poppin Daddies. The liberty he got performing the salsa last week was restricted in this week's quickstep. But despite stumbling once or twice as he tried to keep up with the choreography, Juan Pablo did come out victorious in the end - courtesy his effortless charm and lack of a stage fright. Total 26/30 material.

 

Other brilliant scorers of the night were Instagram model Alexis Ren and her partner Alan Bersten, who also did the Argentine Tango to "Swan Lake" by Ray Chew Live and scored 25/30; DeMarcus Ware and Lindsay Arnold, with their Foxtrot to "Boy from New York City" by The Manhattan Transfer earned them 24/30. Visually impaired Paralympian skier Danelle Umstead was on the lower end of the scoreboard yet again, with 18/30. And so was fan favorite Grocery Store Joe Amabile - who despite his noteworthy improvement, scored only 17/30.

Speaking about the lower end, there was also Bobby Bones and pro partner Sharna Burgess who could manage just 20/30 from their Foxtrot on "Theme from New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra. Bobby's 'exquisitely demented' performance from last week's Monday was on repeat with over the top energy and excitement. But hey - he looks like he's having a great time and nobody's complaining about that!
