Sadie Robertson returned to the "Dancing With the Stars" ballroom Monday night to deliver two exuberant dances, with the second performance — and the judges' reactions — leaving her in tears.
Dancing the jive and then the foxtrot, the "Duck Dynasty" star elicited two very different responses from the judges, who collectively gave a lukewarm assessment to Robertson's first dance with partner Mark Ballas.
"It wasn't my favorite dance, but you have one more coming up," said judge Julianne Hough, as the audience booed her commentary.
The other judges praised elements of the jive, but delivered similar sentiment, giving her only a 33 out of a possible 40.

But after Robertson returned to the dance floor for a second time to perform a foxtrot with Ballas and professional dancer Emma Slater, the judges sang a very different tune.
"That was the best trio of the night ... fantastic!" judge Len Goodman told Robertson. "I wish I had an 11 paddle!"
And Bruno Tonioli added, "Movie star stunning ... I couldn't tell who was the professional!"
Robertson admitted, though, that she "forgot the last part" of the dance and had to improvise. Regardless, she scored a perfect 40 for this latter performance.
