Adam Rippon and his dance pro partner Jenna Johnson skyrocketed to the top of the leaderboard with their cha cha performance of “Sissy That Walk” by RuPaul.

Johnson’s choreography included voguing and plenty of posing woven into a classic cha ha.

“You were born to do this show,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba told the Olympic figure skater. “That was fantastic, so polished, so precise. Well done.”

The pair earned an 8 out of 10 score from Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli . They tied with Redskins cornerback Josh Norman and his dance pro Sharna Burgess for the highest score of the night.

Rippon’s dance caught the attention of Twitter including fellow Olympian and friend Gus Kenworthy and RuPaul himself.

“Dancing with the Stars” airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
