Donald Driver topped the leaderboard on Dancing with the Stars last night. The NFL star and his professional partner Peta Murgatroyd wowed the judges during rock week, with their paso doble to Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" - which saw the sportsman dance topless - earning a total of 27 points.
"Muscular. Masculine. Magnificent!" said judge Bruno Tonioli.
Carrie Ann Inaba described the routine as "raunchy and spectacular," while Len Goodman teased, "After the show, we'll compare tattoos."
This week was the first time Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas have not topped the leaderboard, with the judges receiving boos from the audience - which included David Hasselhoff, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Rita Wilson - when they awarded the couple 24 points for their paso doble.
"It had promise but didn't quite deliver," Len told them.
Katherine Jenkins topped the leader board on Dancing with the Stars last night.
The Welsh opera singer and her dancing partner scored 26 out of 30 for her jive performance, with judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli awarding her nine and head judge Len Goodman giving her eight. "I loved the start, the whole end section - the middle section wasn't really my cup of tea. It was wild and wacky," Len said, commenting on their dance.
Bruno claimed he loved it for its "sexiness. The blonde bombshell is unleashed. I know sexy when I see it and you've got it."
