On Dancing With the Stars Season 18, Week 8, James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd had the Viennese Waltz.

In their video package, Peta and James expressed frustration with their scores and being in jeopardy. It seemed like this week was a tough one for James. So his bandmates came in to help boost his spirits. Another awkward question about if he and Peta are dating. Enough already.

The result is a lovely, smooth Viennese Waltz. This is probably the best he's looked in a ballroom dance. Very classic presentation. Quite a change from last week's sex fest. We really liked it.

Len said he's a fan of James's dancing. However, when he gets into hold he doesn't ever straighten his legs, so his butt comes out. He needs to fix that. However, it was lovely. Abby Lee called Peta perfection, and James managed to make Peta look amazing, which is his job. Bruno said it was like a romance blossoming, the chemistry is tangible. But he agrees with Len. Carrie Ann said he's a "special soul" when he dances, but she agrees about the posture and also saw a lift.

Score: 36/40.
