DWTS 14 Week 4: A gentleman takes the lead

On “Dancing with the Stars” season 14, it was rock week and for the first time, Katherine Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas weren’t the high scoring team. Jenkins and Ballas fell to fourth place while football star Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd finished in first with 27.
But Driver and Murgatroyd were only one point ahead of two teams: Maria Menounos and Derek Hough and Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower. Both teams received the exact same score: 9, 8, 9.
Another surprise of the night, musician Gavin DeGraw and his partner Karina Smirnoff were just one point behind Jenkins and Ballas. At the bottom were the Empress of Soul Gladys Knight and her partner Tristan MacManus. But I think fans will save them. Knight and MacManus tangoed to “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen which doesn’t strike me as a good sign for tango, American or international.
Driver and Murgatroyd were also the high score for their dance, the paso doble (which they danced to Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze.”) Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas were the second highest score with 24 ( “Time Is Running Out” by Muse). Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were the low score (“Conquest” by The White Stripes).
Maria Menounos and Derek Hough were the high score for tango with 26 (9, 8, 9).  Their song was “School’s Out” by Alice Cooper. There’s another song that doesn’t say tango.
