Last night was the eight episode of Dancing With The Stars and contestants not only had to performing their rehearsed dances, but they had to perform ‘Instance Dances’. If you missed the episode catch our official recap here! After last night’s performance at the top of the leader board is J.R. Martinez who impressed the judges to receive perfect scores on both of his performances. The Iraq war veteran and his professional partner Karina Smirnoff were awarded the first full 30 points after their waltz brought the entire audience to its feet. Judge Bruno Tonioli said: “It was like a musical Valentine card. You dance with your heart on your sleeve. It was divine.” Their second performance – a jive which they had just 20 minutes to prepare – was equally successful.
At the bottom of the leaderboard and under-fire was Nancy Grace’s tango with Tristan McManus which only received 24 points, while their jive – which included a performance-ending cartwheel – only scored 20 points.
