Donald Driver on Dancing with the StarsDonald Driver topped the leaderboard on Dancing with the Stars last night. The NFL star and his professional partner Peta Murgatroyd wowed the judges during rock week, with their paso doble to Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" - which saw the sportsman dance topless - earning a total of 27 points.

"Muscular. Masculine. Magnificent!" said judge Bruno Tonioli.

Carrie Ann Inaba described the routine as "raunchy and spectacular," while Len Goodman teased, "After the show, we'll compare tattoos."

This week was the first time Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas have not topped the leaderboard, with the judges receiving boos from the audience - which included David Hasselhoff, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Rita Wilson - when they awarded the couple 24 points for their paso doble.

"It had promise but didn't quite deliver," Len told them.

Katherine Jenkins topped the leader board on Dancing with the Stars last night.

The Welsh opera singer and her dancing partner scored 26 out of 30 for her jive performance, with judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli awarding her nine and head judge Len Goodman giving her eight. "I loved the start, the whole end section - the middle section wasn't really my cup of tea. It was wild and wacky," Len said, commenting on their dance.

Bruno claimed he loved it for its "sexiness. The blonde bombshell is unleashed. I know sexy when I see it and you've got it."

DWTS

Tonight on , the four contestants were each given a private Master Class session with Len Goodman. With next week’s finals on the line, the celebrities were happy to accept any advice that they could get.

For this week’s semifinal round, the dancers first had to perform a style they hadn’t individually tried yet. The second half of the show was then devoted to new styles introduced this season (the Salsa and the Jitterbug).

Who proved they were worthy of a Top Three finish…and who needed more of the head judge’s help? Read on!

Dancing with the Stars 7: Week 7

DWTS

On this week’s episode of , the producers had one more surprise in store for both the competitors and the audience.

In addition to their solo numbers, the six pairs had to perform in the first team dance. After being split into two groups of three (captains Warren Sapp and Susan Lucci were responsible for the assignments), the teams were then charged with working together on an ensemble performance. Unlike last Monday’s previous group hip hop number, these two performances - a Cha Cha Cha and a Paso Doble - were actually being scored. (Those scores would then be added to the individual totals.)

Who showed us they could work in unison…and who still needed work on their solos? Read on!

Dancing with the Stars 7: Week 5
