There have been 10s handed out before on this season of “Dancing With the Stars,” but never three on one dance – until Monday night (April 30). Maria Menounos and Derek Hough turned in an outstanding (and vampire themed!) paso doble on Classical week and were rewarded for their efforts.

“That was amazing. You are so on fire. Katherine has been in the lead for the girls, but she better watch her back,” says Carrie Ann. Bruno adds, “The queen of the damned is the queen of the night … the structure of this dance, the way you built the tension … was absolutely spellbinding.”

As we said, the judges gave it a perfect 30, the first this season. And we found it to be well-deserved. Will Maria and Derek be getting your votes this evening?
