Dancing With The Stars: Motown Night

Did the Empress of Soul get a fair shake with the judges this week?

Dancing With The Stars: Motown Night

Dancing with the Stars celebrated the glory days of Motown music on Monday, April 23. The eight remaining couples danced to songs from the era with the likes of Smokey Robinson, Martha Reeves and The Temptations.

Gladys Knight, the Empress of Soul and a Motown legend, charmed the audience and judges with her joyful Rumba, but landed at the bottom of the leader board.  Roshon Fagan couldn't muster up a sexy enough Rumba which landed him in the bottom two.  His movements were over exaggerated and staccato, according to judges.

William Levy, on the other hand, went straight for the sex appeal during his steamy Rumba with Cheryl Burke.  Of course, Bruno loved it, but Carrie Ann and Len thought it wasn't his

best dance.  Len said it was a little too raunchy while Bruno said, “you two were wired for sex!”

Jaleel White made a huge comeback this week with his Motown-inspired “George Jefferson”-like Cha Cha.  Katherine Jenkins has earned herself a new nickname with judge Len Goodman. Goodman told Katherine,  “I am going to call you 'The Midwife' because you keep on delivering every week” during his review of her dance.

The Motown Marathon gave us the biggest surprise when Maria Menonous was knocked out second.  Katherine Jenkins won the Cha Cha marathon giving her an extra 10 points for the night.
