On the Dancing With the Stars semifinals (Season 18, Week 9), James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd danced the Cha-Cha-Cha.

They were dancing to Michael Jackson, which is a big deal for James, who loves Michael Jackson. He met L.A. Reed, who is a big producer. He asks what made Michael Jackson the best. L.A. Reed said it was about being the hardest working person. James is a hard worker too, so that's good for him.

The dance is fun. They throw some Michael Jackson moves in there (moonwalk!) while still getting in a lot of Cha-Cha-Cha content. Love the outfits, too.

Carrie Ann said they've seen Michael Jackson a thousand times, and it's hard to pull him off well. What they did tonight was spectacular; it brought together the Michael, the James, and the Cha-Cha-Cha. Len agreed, he loved all of the Cha-Cha content. Peta looked thrilled. Kenny Ortega said it was obvious he put his heart and soul into it, it was electrifying. Bruno called it effortlessly cool, on fire.

Score: 40/40.


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