The pair wowed viewers with a throwback to the 1920s that barely allowed AJ a second to catch her breath, complete with swivels, kicks, jumps and lifts.
Following the performance, none of the judges had any negative critiques, which included Craig Revel Horwood, who summed up the number with just three words: “A. Ma. Zing.”
And yet, when it came to scoring the dance, Craig refused to give it a perfect score, instead reaching for his 9 paddle, while the rest of the judges gave it 10s.

Fortunately, AJ’s overall score of 39 still put the Don’t Rock The Boat presenter at the top of the leaderboard for the night, but many viewers couldn’t help commenting on Craig’s stinginess:
Nah I’m sorry. How can Craig give a 9 without any feedback?! If it’s A-MAZE-ING with 0 feedback it is a 10?! How could AJ have got a 10?! Please tell us Craig. Such an incredible dance!!! #Strictly#StrictlyComeDancing
