Dancing With the Stars 2014: James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd’s Week 7 Samba (VIDEO)

Dancing With the Stars Season 18, Week 7, Latin Night brought the Samba for James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd.

In the video, Peta explained that she and James have to get very close during the Rumba. "Rub up against me" is a phrase used. A lot of focus is put on the showmance, but James said they are trying to keep things "as platonic as possible for now."

They hit the floor with a very sexy dance. Peta was literally just wearing lingerie, and James took off his shirt. It was eye catching. But did all the sexy stuff take away from the actual dancing, or enhance it? We found it a little distracting, but hey. We won't say no to shirtless James.

"What are you doing tomorrow?" Bruno joked. It was dirty and he loved it. Carrie Ann was visibly flustered. He worked that Samba, it was very sexy. Ricky Martin says they are always taking things to the next level. It was surprise after surprise, wow after wow, the gift that keeps on giving. Len joked that Peta was overdressed. James kept the motor running but the foot action wasn't great and it could have used better hip action. But it was fun.

Score: 35/40.

Dancing With the Stars airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
