Chelsie Hightower Nearly Suffers Nip Slip on Dancing With the Stars
Dancing With the Stars' Latin night almost got a little too steamy Monday!
The nine remaining celebrity contestants danced the samba, salsa or Argentine tango with musical guest Santana leading the way. Despite some injuries amongst the contestants, everyone stepped up their game for the halfway point of the competition.
Unfortunately, dancing pro Chelsie Hightower nearly suffered a nip slip while dancing the salsa with her partner, Disney star Roshon Fegan.
The right shoulder strap of Hightower's bird costume starting slipping down towards the end of their performance. She managed to pull it back up during the dance and end on a high note.
"All together there?" host Tom Bergeron asked as Hightower, 22, as she and Fegan, 20, made their way to the judges.
He joked, "Part of that costume almost flew the coop!"
But judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli kept their comments focused on Fegan's exceptional salsa moves calling them "sexy" and "unbelievable."
Fegan looked to contestant/Cuban heartthrob William Levy for inspiration for his sexy moves, but his 26/30 score was no match for Levy.
Despite suffering an ankle injury Sunday and having an MRI test done Monday, Levy, 31, tied for the top spot with Katherine Jenkins, 31, and her partner Mark Ballas.
The contestants each scored a nearly perfect score of 29/30. Tonioli said Jenkins' dance was "played to perfection" while Inaba called Levy "the Latin dancing James Bond."
Maria Menounos and her partner Derek Hough's kiss on the dance floor didn't impress the judges and they tied Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd with 27/30.
Rounding out the bottom scores were Jaleel White and Kym Johnson with 24/30, Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus with 22/30, Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy with 21/30 and musician Gavin DeGraw and his partner Karina Smirnoff came in last with 19/30.
