Hines Ward and Kym Johnson made everyone “proud to be an American” last night on Dancing With the Stars with their leaderboard-topping rumba! The dynamic duo brought energy and charisma to the dance floor. Plus, we just can’t get enough of Hines’ perfect smile!
Hines, dressed as a sailor, and Kym performed the rumba to “God Bless the U.S.A.”
“Just the right amount of sensuality,” Bruno Tonioli gushed.
“You make it look so easy,” Carrie Ann Inaba shared. “You have the best hip action I have seen in a long time.”
Len Goodman echoed similar sentiments.
“Probably your best dance,” he said.
Hines earned three 9’s from the judges — topping out the leaderboard with a 27 out of 30.
Backstage with Brooke Burke, Hines quipped that when he wasn’t rehearsing with Kym this week, “I would sling my pillow everywhere.”
“It was the most unromantic week of rehearsals, we kept bumping into each other,” Kym shared.
