James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd tried the Salsa on Dancing With the Stars Season 18, Week 2.

In their video package, James joked about how he should dance shirtless. Or nude! But the goal is to be a good dancer. They want to one up Cody. They're going full out, they want to win. They seem to be getting along well.

James did, indeed, go shirtless, and Peta wore almost nothing. But the dance itself was pretty good, too. Not just eye candy.There were some cool moves, and James really attacked it. His technique seems rough, though. It got a huge applause.

"More of that, please!" said Bruno. "You've come out of your shell, and you have the abs to prove it!" That said, he also stood out next to Peta, and that was because of his dancing not just the abs. Carrie Ann said the Salsa was a good choice. James just joined the DWTS sexy hall of fame. Len said he lost the quality of the dance now and then, but he really attacked it.

Score: 25/30.
