The singer and his professional dance partner Janette Manrara bagged a perfect score for their Couple’s Choice routine.
Dressed in matching tie-dye outfits they performed a Street/Commercial dance routine to A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay.
It marked the first time this series that a couple has been awarded the full 30 points.
Giving his feedback, Craig went as far as to call the 21-year-old, real name Harvey Cantwell, the ‘GOAT’.
Aside from one loud cheer of ‘Yes!’ not many people present knew what Craig meant.
Helpfully, he cleared things up.
What does GOAT mean?
‘GOAT’ in this instance was used by Craig as an acronym.
Noticing the lack of reaction in the studio, the judge joked: ‘Obviously no-one’s down with the teens as much as me.
‘It stands for greatest of all time’.
Where did GOAT come from?

There are a couple of theories.
One is that in 1992, Muhammad Ali’s wife Lonnie launched Greatest Of All Time Inc for the boxer’s intellectual properties. When shortened it reads G.O.A.T. Inc.
Ali, who died in 2016, referred to himself as ‘The Greatest’ throughout his glittering career.
Another theory is that LL Cool J coined it in 2000 with his album G.O.A.T.
However the Phenomenon rapper himself credits Ali for creating the term.
Who can be called GOAT?
Basically someone who is unmatched at what they do. Everyone has different criteria so it’s hard to say, but it’s not praise that is handed out lightly.
These days it is often used in the worlds of sport, rap and hip-hop to debate which athlete or musician is the best, with fans using the goat emoji on social media as a pun.
It’s probably safest to assume that whoever you might think is the GOAT in their field, someone will almost always disagree.
