Maria Menounos was glowing last night's episode of "Dancing with the Stars" and in the other hand Katherine Jenkins was in tears.
What really happens was "Extra" correspondent Menounos had an exceptional night on the show, garnering a total score of 59 points. She and partnerperformed a perfect tango, described by judge as "titillating, enticing, absolutely fabulous." The two also danced a jive which gained them a close-to-perfect score of 29.
Meanwhile in a separate performance, Menounos’ fellow frontrunner on the dance competition series, Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins, had experienced an unexpected disaster. While Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas began the night with a quickstep that brought in a high score of 29, tragedy struck during the pair’s salsa. During the dance competition, Jenkins wearing a revealing green sequin costume, bent backwards and suddenly she stumbled standing up. She stopped dancing and cried covering her face with her hands.
Despite the pain, Jenkins smiled through her tears and the judges gave her a score of 27, not as bad as she had expected.
