Ooh la la! Things got hot and heavy on the April 7 episode of ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ when James Maslow switched partners and danced a super sexy tango with Cheryl Burke — watch the near perfect performance below!

Just when we thought James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd had an unattainable chemistry, the “switch up” knocked the ballroom upside down! James was partnered with Cheryl Burke, and they danced to Katy Perry‘s “Dark Horse.” It was intense! They got a 35 out of 40, the second highest score of the night behind Meryl Davis. Do you think James can end up winning the entire competition?

Guest judge Julianne Hough was chomping at the bit to praise James and Cheryl’s performance:

“You are the total package. You’re so amazing. Every season there’s the hot guy that takes off his shirt and they can only go so far, that last’s for so long, but for you, you have dedication, you have technique, you have passion, you have everything. You’re the total package. One note: you like to stick your butt out. So maybe next week Peta can help you with tucking your pelvis.”

Bruno Tonioli agreed, saying he’s got to get his butt under control! What a cheeky judge.

“This was about the switch up and I didn’t notice at all the switch up — and that’s what this night is about,” Carrie Ann Inaba said.

Head judge Len Goodman called it “burning hot” and “fiery.”

James: Will He Beat Charlie?

James was ahead of Charlie White in the week four dance. Charlie was an earlier frontrunner and has a lot of experience being an ice dancer.

James is definitely giving him a run for his money!

Do you think James can win Dancing With The Stars, HollywoodLifers?
