Lauri Hernandez breaks down, mid-performance, on DWTS after loss of her Grandmother 

By MelissaOnK923

Last nights episode of DWTS was an emotional one. One of the four contestants who will compete in next week’s finale is Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez. Her beloved grandmother, Brunilda died over the weekend so this dance was a tribute to her which made it a little more difficult for Lauri to finish. “I am extremely close to my grandma,” Hernandez revealed. “Growing up, she would always do my hair, she was always the one who would make me chocolate milk or rice when I came home.” The 16-year-old openly cried as she performed beautiful foxtrot set to Tori Kelly’s “Hollow” in honor of her grandma and earned perfect scores for her tribute. The episode also saw Little Women: LA star Terra Jole being eliminated
