For Classical week on “Dancing With the Stars,” Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas danced a rumba to Pachelbel’s Canon in D. And while we appreciate that the rumba is a slower dance, this one was not the same as her slow waltz. It left us flat and a little bored. Are we alone in this?

Carrie Ann kind of nailed when she said the passion felt forced, not “genuine and heated.” Katherine and Mark are definitely no Maria and Derek, that’s for sure. The other judges loved it, though. Len said the dance had “style and elegance,” while Bruno was his usual effusive self with, “The unattainable object of desire. The embodiment of the power of beauty, merely toying with your subjects.”

She received three 9s for a total of 27. Were we alone in our feelings about Katherine’s rumba? She’s still one of the best dancers on the show and technically it was near perfect, but it just lacked some spark for us. Will Katherine be getting your vote tonight?
