chris jericho dwts 'Dancing With the Stars': Chris Jericho's 'America the Beautiful' patriotic waltzWas Chris Jericho ever in the military? No, but he sure wore that uniform like he was.

On Monday’s (April 18) “Dancing With the Stars” pair pro Cheryl Burke and pro wrestler Chris used a lovely, jazzy version of “America the Beautiful” coupled with an American flag background, a sparkly red dress with a plunging neckline for Cheryl and a smart military uniform for Chris to create a very patriotic Viennese Waltz.

The judges were complimentary, with Bruno Tonioli describing it as “big, yet graceful. Strong, yet delicate. Elegant with a sweeping sense of romance. It was absolutely wonderful” and Carrie Ann Inaba saying that in a weird way they have underestimated him.

Len Goodman was not quite as effusive, saying, “When you deserve an 8, I’ll give you one. It was a little bit flat-footed.” But when the scores came down, Len did indeed give Chris an 8. Along with Bruno and Carrie’s 9s, Chris and Cheryl’s total score was 26, which is their best score so far in the competition.

What did you think? And does anyone know exactly what uniform Chris had on? If you missed it, video is below.
