Aly Raisman’s former Olympic teammates Kyla Ross and Gabby Douglas attended the April 8 episode of “Dancing with the Stars” to cheer on Raisman, who placed first in the episode with her partner Mark Ballas.

Raisman performed a contemporary routine with Ballas that was set to the song “Titanium” by David Guetta. The theme of the evening was the best year of the contestants’ lives and Raisman had chosen 2012, when she competed at the Olympics. In addition to the “best year” theme, each celebrity participant had to perform a solo during the routine.

“I'm excited that this is the show they'll be at because it's all about the Olympics,” Raisman had said of Ross and Douglas’s appearance in an interview with USA Today.

Judge Bruno Tonioli seemed especially impressed by Raisman’s performance.

“Forget about titanium, you are going for gold,” he told her during the show.
