Dancing with the Stars NZ: Laura Daniel earns first perfect score

Laura Daniel has earned the first perfect score of this season of Dancing with the Stars NZ.

In the semi-final on Sunday night, the comedian pulled off a flawless paso doble to Lady Gaga's 'Judas'.

Daniel admitted she was nervous as previous contestants Mike McRoberts and Walter Neilands were savaged for their attempts at the paso, but her fears proved baseless.

Clad in biking leathers and dramatic eyeliner, she didn't put a foot wrong as she twirled around the dancefloor with partner Shae Mountain.

Julz Tocker was so excited he clambered onto the judges' table and screeched.

Camilla Sacre-Dallerup didn't have much more to add.

"Three words: That. Was Epic!" she yelled.

In a season-first score, all three judges rated Daniel a 10, skyrocketing her to the very top of the leaderboard.

Social media was similarly enthralled.

The next episode of DWTS NZ will air on Monday at 7:30pm on Three. The full episode can be watched again on ThreeNow.
