James Maslow scored 25 out of 30 from "Dancing With the Stars" judges on Monday night for his salsa dance with partner Peta Murgatroyd, which tied him for the lead with ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie WhiteCarrie Ann Inaba was certainly smitten, describing his routine, in which Murgatroyd ripped open his shirt, as one of the show's sexiest numbers before giving him a nine out of 10.

The performance not only boosted his rating from judges, it also improved his standing with the Users at Gold Derby, who now rank him fifth with 16/1 odds to win the entire season. He also gets 16/1 odds to get next week's top judges' score too.
