DWTS 14 Week 5: Five tens and a tie for first

Things were heating up on “Dancing with the Stars” on Latin night, with three teams receiving tens and a tie for the top spot. The celebrities for season 14 are all dancing well with the lowest score a 19.

Taking the top spot were two teams who performed the Argentine tango: Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas  and Latin telenovela heart throb William Levy and his partner Cheryl Burke. They received the exact same score with only head judge Len Goodman refraining from giving them perfect scores, settling instead for a nine.

Goodman gave a nine to TV commentator Maria Menounos and and her partner Derek Hough. With nines straight across, that team was tied for third with last week’s leader, football player Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd. Driver and Murgatroyd received a perfect score from Carrie Ann Inaba, but an eight from Goodman and a nine from Bruno Tonioli.

Menounos and Hough performed a salsa to “The Cup of Life” by Ricky Martin. Driver and  Murgatroyd danced an Argentine tango to “Sin Rumbo” by Otros Aires.

Menounos and Hough were the high score for salsa for Week 5, but Levy and Burke, who performed a salsa during week 3, still have the high score for salsa this season.

Jaleel White and Kym Johnson scored a 24 (8, 8, 8) to be the highest scoring samba of the night, but were the second highest score for that dance. Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower received a 25 (8, 8, 9) for this samba routine during week 3. Singer/actor Jack Wagner and his partner Anna Trebunskaya received a 24 (8, 8, 8) for their samba during week 3.

At the bottom, were Gladys Knight and Tristan McManus with a 20 (7, 7, 8) and Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff with  19 (6, 6, 7).  Both teams performed a samba with DeGraw and Smirnoff performing to “Sweetheart from Venezuela” by Harry Belafonte. I think DeGraw and Smirnoff is likely to go.
