It’s Classical Night on DANCING WITH THE STARS: Week Seven! Elegance, and grace were present on the dance floor tonight as the first perfect score was received by Maria Menounos & Derek Hough! For weeks Menounos had been lingering behind heavy weights William Levy, Katherine Jenkins and Donald Driver and now she has stepped it up finally, coming in first this week with an impressive total of 57 points for the night.

After their individual dances, the seven DWTS couples divided up into two groups to do the team dances this week. The scores were then added onto their individual dance scores, giving them their final tallies. By the end of the night Menounos  reigned as queen of the ballroom! Just three points behind Menounos & Hough are Jenkins & Mark Ballas with 54, followed in a tie of 53 by Levy & Cheryl Burke and Driver & Peta Murgatroyd. Then, Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower ended the night with 53, Jaleel White & Kym Johnson with 51 and lastly, Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy with 47. Team Tango (Menounos & Hough, White & Johnson, Jenkins & Ballas, Fegan & Hightower) edged out Team Paso Doble (Levy & Burke, Driver & Murgatroyd, Gilbert & Chmerkovskiy) by just one point.

Donald Driver (NFL player) and his partner Peta Murgatroyd
The always-reliable Driver had good posture and a sturdy hand. Len Goodman called his Viennese Waltz terrific. Carrie Ann Inaba loved his intensity. Bruno Tonioli thanked Driver for his performance.
Scores: Inaba – 9, Goodman – 9, Tonioli – 9, Harland – 9

Melissa Gilbert (actress) and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy
I thought she kicked butt, just like her last dance. The judges seemed to disagree. Goodman said her Argentine Tango lacked quality. Tonioli said it got messy. Inaba thought she sacrificed a lot for her lifts.
Scores: Inaba – 7, Goodman – 7, Tonioli – 7, Harland – 8

Katherine Jenkins (singer) and her partner Mark Ballas
Sometimes you actually forget she isn’t a pro! Goodman called her Rumba classical. Tonioli wanted it to be a bit raunchier. Inaba said she was unmatched technically.
Scores: Inaba – 9, Goodman – 9, Tonioli – 9, Harland – 9

Jaleel White (actor) and his partner Kym Johnson
A valiant effort, but he needs to watch his posture. Goodman said he liked his Viennese Waltz enough not to be cruel. Tonioli called it very nice. Inaba thought the storytelling aspect of the dance was excellent.
Scores: Inaba – 8, Goodman – 8, Tonioli – 8, Harland – 8

Roshon Fegan (Disney star) and his partner Chelsie Hightower
He struggled to lift and hold his partner. Goodman said his legs were awkward. Inaba gave him a hug and said he showed a lot of confidence in his Argentine Tango. Tonioli thought it was a clean performance.
Scores: Inaba – 9, Goodman – 8, Tonioli – 8, Harland – 8

William Levy (actor) and his partner Cheryl Burke
He was debonair and beautiful. Tonioli called his Viennese Waltz touching. Inaba said that’s just what she was looking for. Goodman said that tonight you are up.
Scores: Inaba – 9, Goodman – 9, Tonioli – 9, Harland – 9

Maria Menounos (TV host) and her partner Derek Hough
Boy, she gave it all her heart and soul! Goodman called her Paso Doble sharp as a razor. Tonioli called her queen of the night. Inaba joked that it didn’t suck.
Scores: Inaba – 10, Goodman – 10, Tonioli – 10, Harland – 9
