Looks like the right couples made it to the final four on ABC’s hit show “Dancing With the Stars.” For the most part, the remaining celebrities all ran neck-and-neck in their scores from the judging panel.
Monday night, they were tasked with two dances, and considering that everyone scored at least one 10 for their performances, the judges were pleased with how things worked out. It was a tie for the top of the leaderboard, with both William Levy and Maria Menounos earning nearly perfect scores.
Here’s how it all shook down:
William Levy and Cheryl Burke
The Latin heartthrob and soap star took on the tango for his first dance. For his second performance, he danced the samba. The judges found his first performance a bit flatfooted, but it didn’t stop them from scoring him with two 9’s and a 10. In the second performance, head judge Len Goodman said,”Talk about the hunk with the junk in his trunks!” He earned a perfect trio of 10’s. 59/60
Maria Menounos and Derek Hough
The TV journalist danced the Argentine tango in her first time out on the ballroom floor, and the judges raved, rewarding her with 10’s across the board. Judge Bruno Tonioli called her routine “titillating beyond my wildest dreams!” For her second performance, she danced the jive, and the judges pretty much crowned her the winner of the night, saying that even though it wasn’t traditional, it worked quite well. 59/60
Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd
The NFL star danced the waltz and impressed the judges with what they called a dreamy rendition of the ballroom dance. Goodman said it was “absolutely charming,” a score from the hard-to-please judge. His next dance was the samba, which earned him two perfect paddle scores from judges. 57/60
Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas
The opera singer challenged herself with the quickstep, and judges could hardly contain themselves with how much they loved it. Tonioli was a bit more animated than usual, shouting out “Outstanding!” when it was his turn to speak. Jenkins’ second dance was a salsa, and the judges noted she made a few missteps. That said, the judges were still impressed with her moves. Carrie Ann Inaba told her it was “like you hung out with Beyoncé over the weekend.” 56/60
