Following her performance, the daughter of Terri Irwin and the late Steve Irwin said, “It was amazing. Going out there, I was so, so terrified, just because it was so different from anything that we’ve done yet in this competition so I was scared but Derek was so strong and we managed to get that lift. I’m thrilled.”
