Simone Biles’ “Dancing With The Stars” performance Monday night brought the audience to tears.
Contestants were asked to share their most significant life moments as part of the “Most Memorable Year Week” on the ABC dancing competition show. The 20-year-old Olympic gymnast emotionally recalled being adopted by her grandparents after her mother placed her in foster care when she was just three.
My parents saved me. They’ve set huge examples of how to treat other people and they’ve been there to support me since day one,” she said in a video ahead of her performance. “There’s nothing I can say to them to thank them enough. Even though there’s no right words, maybe dance will say it for me.”
