Katherine Jenkins Moves Audience, Leaps to Dancing With the Stars Lead

by at . Comments

Whoever Katherine Jenkins is, she's pretty awesome!

More than a few Dancing With the Stars viewers probably had that thought Monday, as the Welsh opera singer surged past the entire field - even Latin heart throb William Levy - to claim sole possession of first place again.

The theme of the night was the "Most Memorable Year" of the contestants' lives, and an emotional Jenkins, 31, dedicated her waltz to her late father.

She reeled in the big points, and stirred big emotions, as she and pro partner Mark Ballas, danced to Josh Groban’s song “To Where You Are.” Watch:

Her devotion and attention to detail - technical and emotional - was one of the highlights of the night by any measure.  “It was almost like you had two partners,” Carrie Ann Inaba said through tears. “Dad is definitely smiling.”

Anybody disagree? Didn't think so.
