Jaleel White Gets His DWTS Mojo Back

by at . Comments

Merely one week after having to dance for his life against Gavin DeGraw in the bottom two, Jaleel White is back on top of the Dancing With the Stars heap.

Tying for first in last night's Motown Week performances, White and Kym Johnson danced the cha cha to The Temptations' "Ain't Too Proud to Beg."

White admitted during rehearsal, "I've definitely been feeling a lot of stress this week and it's taken its toll on me." You wouldn't know it after this:

"You're back," head judge Len Goodman announced, proudly.

Bruno Tonioli, never one to hold back, added, "That was biggest sizzler of the season! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger and you've come back big time."

Carrie Ann Inaba was the final judge to weigh in on the former Family Matters actor, saying, "Consider the A game brought to the table. Welcome back."

For Jaleel, who has battled tabloid adversity in the form of accusations by Bridget Hardy, as well as the standard DWTS scrutiny, it was a triumphant return indeed.

Sitting atop Monday's Dancing With the Stars scores, he's all but secured a place in the next round. How far do you think he can make it this spring?

Jaleel and Kim were so good that my daughter and I kept rewinding it and watching again. Were hoping to see them dance again during the results show but they didn't ask the judges to pick a dance they wanted to see again. The dance off is humiliating and embarrasing and should not be happening. Reminds me of that surprise dance they used a couple of seasons ago to get rid of Ralph and save that Chelsea girl. They spent that whole season being incredibly mean to Ralph and this season they're doing it to Roshon.. That's a shame--he's so cute. Mark is a freak--can't believe the judges are so into him and his partner, William/Cheryl and Derek/Maria should all be voted off so they can go somewhere and do it to their hearts' content. I personally don't want to watch foreplay on the dance floor.
