“Dancing With the Stars” introduced a new feature this week – the trio dance, which is where the stars dance with their pro partner plus another pro who was either eliminated or is from the dance troupe. For his trio dance, Donald Driver danced with partner Peta Murgatroyd and pro Karina Smirnoff on a jive to “Rip It Up.” And rip it up they did. Seriously, we thought Donald danced the absolute you-know-what out of that jive.

The judges also liked it. Len called it “fun, fun, fun” and Bruno said, “It’s so hard keeping in sync in a threesome, I tell you. But you handled it beautifully.” Carrie Ann gushed, “You never missed a step, you kept up the whole way. I loved your threeway, it was great!”

Unfortunately, the judges were just a tad stingy, we thought. We thought Donald could’ve gotten more than one 10 vote, but Len and Bruno only gave him 9s. Ah well. It was still awesome. Will Donald be getting your votes tonight?
