Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough received perfect scores from the Dancing With the Stars judges this week--making it the second week in a row the pair has aced their performances. This week found Bindi Irwin scaring up 10s while dressed as Queen of the Vampires as she and Derek Hough did a Tango to "Cry Little Sister," a song from the 1987 classic horror flick The Lost Boys.

This dance not only saw Bindi Irwin ace her steps, she also proved she can transform her persona from the sweet, 17-year-old conservationist to a bloodthirsty character that's about as far from Bindi's personality as fire is from ice.

Wearing pale makeup to give her a more vampiric appearance, Bindi Irwin was decked out in a shimmering red dress and prosthetic fangs.

Once she and Derek completed their dance, however, the real Bindi Irwin shone through. She was unable to control her excitement over executing exceptional moves on the dance floor, and receiving 10s for the performance.

Did you catch Derek Hough and Bindi Irwin Monday night on Dancing With the Stars?

If not--this spoiler alert is meant for you.

While Bindi Irwin remains at the top of the list of DWTS "stars," and is favored to win the season, someone had to go home.

Hayes Grier was eliminated from Dancing With the Stars, meaning the curtain falls for him and pro dance partner Emma Slater.

"They are brilliant people. This has meant so much to me," Hayes said following his elimination, as he hugged Emma Slater. "This has been a life-changing event."

Bindi Irwin, however, moves on to next week's competition--and as with most weeks so far, she gets better and better the more she dances.

Do you think Bindi Irwin will win this season of Dancing With the Stars? If not Bindi, then who do you expect will take home the mirror ball trophy?
