Brandy and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy sambaed this week on “Dancing With The Stars,” their third performance thus far.

The two danced to Alicia Keys and Beyonce’s “Put It In A Love Song.”

Thanks to Brandy learning to keep her mouth shut during practice and Maksim’s unusual, but effective teaching methods – there’s spanking involved – the pair managed to earn a 24 out of 30.

Judge Bruno Tonioli said, “Brandy my darling, I’m starting to see the comeback of the diva!”
