'Dancing with the Stars': Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff waltz their way up the leader board
And the dancing was sublime. Along with the music, performed by an in-house orchestra.
"Achingly romantic," judge Bruno Tonioli breathlessly exclaimed, "Brilliant storytelling through dance."
"You've been in the wilderness for two weeks," added Len Goodman. "You're back."
"Normally I would say that's very melodramatic at the beginning," said judge Carrie Ann Inaba, describing the over-emoted and (cough cough) melodramatic opening in which Macchio "acted" out his pain at the loss of his Juliet.
What did you think? Should Macchio and Smirnoff have waltzed back into the lead with Monday's performance?
