Bindi Irwin: Queen of Darkness in fierce Halloween dance

BINDI Irwin was haunting in a Halloween-themed Dancing with the Stars US performance.

Bindi and partner Derek Hough wowed the judges yet again, scoring a perfect 30 for their Argentine Tango.

The performance was the opportunity for Bindi to show her "fierce" side, as yet unseen during the series.

"Obviously I'm not very good at being scary so I'm looking at it from a different perspective," she said.

"One quote defines my entire life: 'never confuse kindness with weakness'.

"That's me. I'm nice but I'm strong."

And what better way to bring that out than as a Vampire Queen.

Judge Julianne Hough said the couple took their performance to another level, dancing to the Lost Boys Cry Little Sister, while Bruno Tonioli described their dance as "an Argentine Tango masterclass".

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has reduced the odds on Bindi to win Dancing with the Stars from $2.50 to $2, putting her well ahead of the next contender Alexa Penavega on $4.

Sportsbet.com.au's Will Byrne said Bindi's performance was spell binding.

"She sucked the life out of the competition and left blood on the dancefloor so we had to take a bite out of her odds," he said.

Sportsbet are also offering odds of $7 for Bindi to become a contestant on our own version of the show and $21 to become a judge.
