They may have tied last week for the top spot, but on Monday night’s “Dancing With the Stars,” Mya and Dmitry Chaplin were in a league of their own.
For the show’s third week of competition, the duo stepped things up, stealing the spotlight with a sexy rumba. Their moves, fast and furious, left all of the judges marveling and left the pair with the first perfect 10s of the season – from judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.
“It was just complete fluidity,” Carrie Ann raved as the two took home 27 out of 30, the highest score of the night.
But while Mya and Dmitry were on top, swimmer Natalie Coughlin and professional dancer Alec Mazo left little breathing room.
Their rumba, which Edyta Sliwinska helped coach, got Bruno hot under the collar.
“I knew you could fly, but you’ve gone stratospheric tonight. Sexy beast,” Bruno raved of the pair who netted 26 out of 30.
And it appeared to be ladies night as the third slot on the “Dancing” leaderboard was snapped up by model Joanna Krupa and her professional partner, Derek Hough.
After an acrobatic leap on to the stage with the help of a rope, Derek helped celebrity contender Joanna samba to the tune of 23 out of 30 points.
“The good times are back. It was a samba full of excitement and life,” Bruno said.
But while the ladies scored high, Donny Osmond just plain scored, sharing several overly dramatic kisses with Bruno during the judging round.
After performing his rumba with partner Kym Johnson, Bruno called Donny’s moves, “a bit airy-fairy at times.”
The comment prompted Donny to rush the judge’s table, where he grabbed Bruno and attempted to kiss him. As the entertainer began to turn and leave, Bruno pulled him back and the two shared another passionate embrace for the cameras.
Finally returning to Kym’s side, Donny made light of his saucy behavior, commenting, “I don’t think they’re going to let me back in Utah any more.”
And Donny wasn’t the only celebrity male pulling saucy moves during the show. With slicked back hair and eyes just for his partner, snowboarder Louie Vito had the judges literally fanning themselves after rumbaing with Chelsie Hightower.
“That’s chemistry,” Bruno said. “That’s how to play a girl!”
“Your chemistry is unbelievable,” Carrie Ann added.
Kelly Osbourne and her partner, Louis van Amstel, also got into the spirit of the evening, kissing at the end of their samba, which rounded out the show.
“Donny and Bruno [were] making out. We’re making out,” Louis laughed.
“We think it’s the full moon this weekend that’s affecting everyone,” Kelly added.
