Janel has come under fire for her red hot burlesque dance with pro partner Artem Chigvintsev on the Oct. 14 episode of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ but she’s not sweating her critics one bit!
Judge Julianne Hough, 26, may have thought that Janel Parrish‘s routine on last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars was too “raunchy” but the Pretty Little Liars star is standing by her “sexy” performance. Here’s what she has to say.
Janel Parrish’s ‘DWTS’ Burlesque Dance: Star Defends Racy Routine
We thought Janel, 25, and Artem, 32, who were paired together during the show’s Switch Up week, were hot, hot, hot on the dance floor but apparently Julianne saw things differently.
“There’s no denying that was extremely sexy, but to me, that was not burlesque,” she told the pair. “Burlesque has a cheekiness and quirkiness… that was really raunchy and sexy.”
Judge Bruno Tonioli, on the other hand, was a huge fan! “Never too sexy for me,” he exclaimed. “There’s not a person in the country who will need Viagra tonight!”
Janel also defended her controversial performance to Access Hollywood‘s Shaun Robinson after the show.
“I think it’s a sexy dance from what I’ve seen. It’s usually a dance with women, so when you throw a man in there, it’s going to get a little sexy,” Janel said. “If our biggest crime tonight that it was a little too sexy, it’s OK with me. I think we had an amazing time.”
“It was fun and it looked hot,” she added. We couldn’t agree more!

This isn’t the first time Janel has showed off her sex appeal on DWTS. The Sept. 16 results show revealed Janel and her usual pro partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, kissing backstage!
Not only that but Janel told Val, “I love you!” The chemistry between competitors is hotter than ever this season!
So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Was Janel and Artem’s burlesque performance TOO sexy? Let us know!
