Sadie Robertson really came out of her shell on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, performing a spirited samba with partner Mark Ballas.

The judges were impressed, handing the pair a score of 37. But they weren't the only ones gushing about the 17-year-old, who really seems to be hitting her stride.

PEOPLE caught up with her proud papa, Willie Robertson, after the show to get his thoughts. And while admitting it's still early in the competition, the Duck Dynasty star said he can tell his daughter is improving week to week.

Betsey Johnson Was Sent Home on Dancing with the Stars

It was "Most Memorable Year" night on the dance floor – though it should have been called let's gets super sad and personal because of all the teary-eyed video packages. But even a moving tribute to her adult daughter couldn't save designer Betsey Johnson on a night that gave America (or at least those on the East Coast) a chance to vote in place of the still-missing judge Len Goodman.

"Thank you, thank you, mostly to Tony, to my fans, this has been the best wonderful thing," said Johnson at the end of the show. "It's just been a trip, a big trip!"

The designer who started the night out in jeopardy earned a fairly respectable 29 after performing a panty-flashing handstand in her number with Tony Dovolani. "I think I saw your Victoria's Secret!" quipped judge Bruno Tonioli.

Karina Smirnoff's DWTS Blog: 'I Have No Regrets' After Elimination

Originally posted 10/06/2014 10:45AM

Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, having won the coveted mirror-ball trophy in Season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The pro dancer is now in her 16th season on the show, and will be blogging for PEOPLE about competing with actor and retired mixed martial arts fighter Randy Couture for Season 19.

"It's been a great experience, putting myself out there and trying something new," said Couture.

Besides a roof-raising appearance by guest judge Kevin Hart, lots of other fun surprises happened underneath the mirror ball Monday. Here were the scores:
