Judge Carrie Ann Inaba gave singer Romeo and Disney star Chelsea Kane the season’s first perfect 10 score on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.
The theme of the night was Guilty Pleasures, with 90s rockers Hanson opening the show with their smash hit MMMBop.
Romeo’s waltz set to My Heart Will Go On earned him 28/30 points overall, including the first single 10 from Inaba.
“Every once in a while in a season, magic happens,” she told him. “That was magical … you get emotionally connected to the dance that I get completely transported.”
Kane did her quickstep to Katrina and the Waves’ 80s classic, Walking on Sunshine, and tied Romeo for the night’s highest score with 28/30 — including another 10 from Inaba.
“Sometimes magic happens twice,” Inaba said.
Elsewhere, Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward racked up 27 points for his Viennese waltz set to Boyz II Men’s End of the Road, while actress Kirstie Alley, dancing the samba to Britney Spears’ (Hit Me Baby) One More Time, notched a respectable 26. E! star Kendra Wilkinson racked up 25 for her samba set to Ricky Martin’s Livin’ La Vida Loca.
The Karate Kid’s Ralph Macchio got 24 for his paso doble set to C&C Music Factory’s Everybody Dance Now and pro wrestler Chris Jericho was the night’s lowest scorer with 22 for his tango set to Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin.’
A live special titled Dancing with the Stars: The Road To The Finals will air at 8/7c, before we find out who’s going home when Dancing with the Stars airs on ABC Tuesday at 9/8c.
