Last night on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars, we watched as veteran and star of All My Children, J.R. Martinez, took home the very first perfect score of the season – not once, but twice! After the show, J.R. Martinez gushed about his perfect scores, and his perfect dance partner! Read on to hear what J.R. had to say!
From the start of season 13 of Dancing With The Stars, war veteran and actor, J.R. Martinez has won over viewers with his story of triumph over tragedy, and he has quickly become a fan favorite. Last night was the icing on the cake for fans as J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff had to pull off two routines, both of which they did flawlessly, earning them a perfect score of 30 for each dance. After the show, J.R. took to his Twitter page and posted: “I’m over the moon about tonight’s show. I felt good about our waltz & believed it could be 30 worthy! The song had to grow on me & it did!!!Hope everyone enjoyed watching @Karina_Smirnoff & I dance our asses off. Wanted 2 redeem myself after last weeks tango.”
But, J.R. Martinez did not only gush about the perfect score, he spent a good amount of time praising his partner, and dance teacher, Karina Smirnoff. In an interview with ET after the show, J.R. told them: “I really want to go as far as I can in this competition for myself and for my partner, she deserves it all. She works her butt off so much and she’s an amazing dancer and so talented. I think the world sees it and it’s time for her take home that trophy if possible and if I have anything to do with that, I’m going to help her.” J.R. Martinez also said the feeling he had when heard the crowd going wild was “indescribable,” and that the energy was “amazing.”
