She may be a 17-year-old Australian girl, but don't let that fool you: Bindi Irwin is a rocker. Bindi and her partner Derek Hough rocked the Dancing With the Stars dance floor to AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" and received a score of 25/30, leading the pack for the night.
"It reminds me of home," Bindi told E! News after her performance Monday. "Dad listened to AC/DC and all of this rock music. And for me, it's really not so much the song as it is the feeling and the memories that it brings back and I love it. I love it."
Derek said the two bonded over their love of rock music like Rage Against the Machine and Slipknot. "We just crank the music," Derek said about downtime in rehearsal. "We put on the music and rock out."
Dancing With the Stars said goodbye to Chaka Khan last night, which was tough, Bindi admitted. "I think no matter who leaves we'll always keep their memory going and keep fighting on for them," she said.
As for what's next, when E! News' Sibley Scoles suggested getting Bindi on the big screen (which she's done before!), Derek jumped in with plans of his own: a TV show.
"I'm working on it. I'm her new agent, her new manager," he said. Derek attended the 2015 Emmys and was chatting up network executives about his DWTS partner. "I was actually talking to people last night, some of the network guys, and I was like, 'We've got to get Bindi a show,'" he said. "We've got to figure out what it's going to be; we're going to figure it out."
But Bindi won't go it alone: "Bindi and Derek in Australia: Wild Adventures," she suggested.
"Dancing With Tigers," Derek said.
Those TV plans will have to wait: Derek and Bindi have another dance tonight on ABC and another elimination ahead.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
