The local 17-year-old actress and presenter received a standing ovation and a perfect score of 30 for the dance routine which she dedicated to her late father Steve.
The judges described Bindi’s performance as magical and fearless, but most impressed of all was her dance partner Derek Hough who exclaimed “I’ve never seen anyone quite like you.”
In a move that would make her Crocodile Hunter dad proud, Bindi stated that her journey was life changing.
“Here I am given this opportunity to remember moments in my life that I never thought I’d really be able to look at and smile,” she said.
