Melora has been performing well 

As for Monday's live show, which will see the dancers perform as their favourite Disney heroes, Melora revealed that her dance will honor her husband.

"I am doing something from The Jungle Book, which reminds me of my husband and is a fun honoring of him, and all the great things about him."

Melora has been one of the standouts of the 30th season, often finding herself in the top five on the leaderboard.

"I could not have asked for a better match for me," she said of Artem

"I feel good [about my progress]," she shared, revealing "Artem said very wisely it's a marathon not a sprint and that is what I am trying to remember".

"I bring my best every week and expand and grow and challenge myself, and try to keep on entertaining."

And as for her partnership with the "wonderful" Artem, Melora revealed that she has been enjoying spending time with the dancer.

"I could not have asked for a better match for me," the 54-year-old said. "I like him as a person and he is a wonderful teacher, he is very committed - we never sit down in our rehearsals, we are just using every minute of the time we have and we both want to just grow and improve."
