The entire cast of Dancing with the Stars welcomed 80's week with gusto, and although the judges were a bit harsher than expected with their comments, they were surprisingly bountiful in dishing out some of the highest scores of the competition.
J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff snagged the top spot of the night with two 9's and an 10, and the overjoyed duo told The Insider's Brooke Anderson that their strategy was to channel J.R.'s inner Latino heartthrob and bringing out his "masculine" and "sexy" with the real J.R., aka, Jose Rene Martinez!
Up until now, Rob Kardashian and pro partner Cheryl Burke have garnered decent scores, but the pair seems to be quickly moving on up in the scoreboard. Monday night brought the two their highest ever score of 25, moving them into a tie for 2nd with David Arquette and Kym Johnson.
Rob credited hard work for achieving their very first 9 of the competition. "This dance for me was probably the toughest," he said, explaining the sensual aspect of the rumba was difficult to master. "I don't consider myself sexy, but for this dance I was."
