'DWTS' Performances: Maria and Derek Share a Real Kiss!
Unlike the almost-smooch of a few weeks ago, "Dancing with the Stars" duo Maria Menounos and Derek Hough sealed the deal while performing a sexy salsa.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba thought the kiss was a bit too much. She said, "Dance is about the illusion of passion. Don't go at it in front of everyone!" Despite the criticism, the pair scored a respectable 27 points.
Melissa Gilbert, recovering from last week's concussion and mild whiplash, spent part of rehearsal in a neck brace but managed to salsa nicely with partner Maks Chmerkovskiy, earning 21 points.
Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas danced the Argentine tango and almost scored a perfect 30, as did William Levy and Cheryl Burke; they tied at the top of the leaderboard with 29 points each.
Here's how they all stacked up:
Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas: 29 William Levy & Cheryl Burke: 29 Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd: 27 Maria Menounos & Derek Hough: 27 Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower: 26 Jaleel White & Kym Johnson: 24 Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus: 22 Melissa Gilbert & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 21 Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff: 19
