Kim Zolciak-Biermann is back and better than ever. The Don't Be Tardy mom made a triumphant return to the Dancing with the Stars stage during Tuesday night's Season 21 finale, and from the way she moved, you would never have even known that she had to bow out of the competition early.

How to Watch

Catch up on Don't Be Tardy on the Bravo App.

 Kim joined partner Tony Dovolani onstage once again to perform an I Dream of Jeannie-inspired routine, which she was supposed to compete with on DWTS before she had to withdraw from the competition after suffering a mini-stroke in September. The following month, Kim underwent a successful heart surgery for an underlying heart condition that contributed to her health scare.

Though Kim was all smiles during her sexy samba routine, she posted an emotional video on Instagram backstage after the performance. "Crazy moment. Like, for real," a teary-eyed Kim said in the clip. "I was just like, oh my God, I'm so blessed to be here. There's no words."

Thank you GOD!!!! ❤️

Kim's daughters Brielle and Ariana Biermann also came out to support their mom's return to the DWTS stage. Ariana even helped (sort of) calm Kim's nerves backstage before her performance.

Thank God for little girls!! #DWTS

Kim also received some love from her fellow DWTS contestant and Internet personality Hayes Grier upon her return to the show.

We're sure happy to see Kim on DWTS again, too.
