Skai Jackson wowed the judges on the dance floor on week four of Dancing With The Stars on Monday night (October 5).

The 18-year-old actress dedicated her Foxtrot with Alan Bersten to the late Cameron Boyce. They danced to John Legend‘s “Ordinary People.”

“I want this dance to be dedicated to Cameron, who was a really close friend of mine and co-star,” she said ahead of her performance. “He was in my life for half of my life, which was crazy. We built up this bond for years and years and years.”

“He molded me into the person I am now. Of course I miss him every day, but I have him on my phone case so I get to see him,” Skai added. “It’s sad he’s not here to see it… I know that he would be really proud of me. He loved Dancing With the Stars and dancing.”

Skai and Alan‘s dance even earned them the first 10 of the season, with a total of 28/30 for their performance!

Before the Dancing With The Stars season started airing, Skai shared with fans that Cameron was actually a big reason as to why she decided to do the show.

Skai Jackson hit the dance floor for her first dance on the season 29 premiere of Dancing With The Stars on Monday (September 14) from Los Angeles.

The 18-year-old Disney star performed the tango with her partner Alan Bersten.

Skai‘s dancing really impressed the judges, earning her the first sevens of the night, for a total of 21/30!

Skai and Alan‘s tango was danced to Nicki Minaj‘s song “Super Bass.”

“I think we nailed it! @dancingabc,” Skai wrote on Instagram.

“I had a blast dancing … make sure you guys vote for me next week!!” she added on Twitter.

Skai recently opened up about dancing and bringing the energy on the dance floor.

“I feel like when you’re dancing, especially how we’re doing it on live television, you need to give that energy to the camera which is mainly with your face,” she told EW. “You can be doing the dance moves 100% but if your face looks confused it might ruin the dance. That’s something that me and my dance partner have been working on a lot — serving face with confidence and with that energy that people can read on-screen and off-screen.”

If you didn’t know, purple is actually the color for Epilepsy awareness, a cause that Skai holds close to her heart. Her friend and late co-star Cameron Boyce passed away due to an epileptic seizure.

The day before, it was officially announced that Skai would be a part of the celebrity lineup competing for the mirror ball trophy this season.

Skai shared the news on her Instagram account with the caption, “Get ready! 💃🏽 via @goodmorningamerica”

One fan commented on the post saying, “Honestly Cameron would’ve been so proud💕❤️,” to which Skai responded, “the biggest reason why I’m doing it.” Aww!
