Dancing with the Stars NZ: Jess Quinn stuns judges with 'euphoric' Viennese waltz

  • 04/06/2018

Jess Quinn has thrilled the judges on Dancing with the Stars NZ with her Viennese waltz.

Dancing to a cover of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah', Quinn and her dance partner Jonny Williams were joined by a third dancer, James.

The group's dance followed a story of a woman find her feet with the help of two angels and seriously impressed the judges.

Usually harsh judge Rachel White had some pointers on how to improve, but also said Jess had an "x-factor" in the competition.

"I felt like I was in a magical, euphoric land watching that," she said.

"It was so open, free flowing and full of joy... that was stunning.

"To me you have an x-factor and that means you have this power to really show how genuine your character is throughout all of your movement."

Quinn scored an eight and two nines for her dance, totalling 26 points.
