Skai Jackson Earns First 10 of 'DWTS' Season for Dance Dedicated to Cameron Boyce

Skai Jackson earned the top score of the season so far during her latest performance on Dancing With the Stars!

The 18-year-old Disney Channel star performed a Foxtrot set to the tune of John Legend‘s “Ordinary People” on Monday night (October 5) at the studio in Los Angeles.

Skai told her partner Alan Bersten that she was dedicating the dance to her late Jessie co-star Cameron Boyce, who died last year.

“I want this dance to be dedicated to Cameron, who was a really close friend of mine and co-star,” Skai said. “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,” she added through tears. ” 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.”

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba gave the performance a 10, marking the first 10 of the season. The other judges gave her 9s, so she earned a 28 overall. That’s the best score so far this season!

There was a big mix-up during the elimination portion of the night.

Skai Jackson Earned Just 15 Points For Her Samba on 'DWTS' & Fans Are Livid!

Skai Jackson completely set the dance floor on fire with her Samba performance on Dancing With The Stars week two on Tuesday (September 22).

With pro partner, and reigning pro champ, Alan Bersten, Skai danced to Neyo‘s “Miss Independent”, and during it, suffered some missteps.

With those missteps, the judges gave Skai and Alan just 15 points, which is six points lower than last week’s breakout performance – and fans were not happy about it.

“NOT SKAI GETTING 5′S IT WAS JUST A MINOR STUMBLE,” one fan reacted to the judges’ scores.

Another added, “I’m about to fight all of those judges for playing in @skaijackson face with them weak 5s. Y’all text SKAI to 21523 and vote for her since they wanna play on #DWTS”

“I’m failing to understand why Skai got such low a low score? I thought she killed it #DWTS,” one more wrote on Twitter.

You can vote for Skai and Alan online, and by text.

Skai Jackson Drops Restraining Order Against Bhad Bhabie

Skai Jackson is dropping her restraining order against Bhad Barbie.

TMZ reports that the 18-year-old actress has filed a dismissal in the case because Bhad Bhabie – real name Danielle Bregoli – has entered rehab.

“Because Danielle stopped threatening me after the Court ordered her to do so, and now that she’s made the decision to work on herself through rehab and therapy, I’m pleased that I don’t need to extend my restraining order,” Skai shared about the decision.

Danielle entered rehab earlier this month to help with her prescription pill addiction and more.

Just recently, Skai has been using her time to call out racists on social media and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
