Jason Mraz bagged some of the highest scores this season on Dancing With the Stars, as Motown came to the dancefloor.

The two-time Grammy Award winning singer and songwriter had one of the stand-out performances of Tuesday’s (Oct. 10) “Motown Night,” as he and his dance partner Daniella Karagach cut loose with a jive to “Do You Love Me” by The Contours.

The judges loved it, as Mraz and Karagach landed the first nines of the season – two of them. With their effort, the pair scored a total of 34 of a possible 40, the equal best result of the night.

At the bottom end of leaderboard, it was a bummer of a night for supermodel Tyson Beckford and his dance partner Jenna Johnson, who scraped to 20 points from a possible 40 with their foxtrot to “Master Blaster (Jammin’)” by Stevie Wonder. It was bye-bye for Beckford, who joins the growing count of eliminated contestants, which includes last week’s outgoing pair Jamie Lynn Spears and Alan Bersten.

Mraz has sparkled in his DWTS run, and based on his scorecards, he’s improving as the season moves on. Last week, the judges awarded the pair 24 out of 30, equaling the night’s (and season’s) best, and before that, they nabbed a hattrick of sevens (good for equal second, just one point from the top of the early leaderboard).

Earlier in this 32nd season of DWTS, Mraz addressed the secrets to his dancing powers; he claims to have an extra vertebra in his spine.

Mraz has landed two top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100, and five top 10s on the Billboard 200, including two No. 2s — for 2012’s Love Is a Four Letter Word and 2014’s Yes. A No. 1 has so-far eluded him.

Dancing with the Stars is live Tuesdays on ABC and Disney+, and is available for streaming on Hulu. Next week is Disney 100 night.

Soulman Caleb Sasser Scores Four-Chair Turn on ‘The Voice’ With ‘Magical’ Audition

Well, that was quick. When Caleb Sasser stopped by NBC’s The Voice to deliver a Blind Audition, the feedback was swift. Sasser, who hails from Goldsboro, North Carolina, hadn’t even finished the first line in his cover of Toni Braxton’s “Another Sad Love Song” when he’d landed the one-two punch of Niall Horan and Gwen Stefani turns. And when he unleashed a run of delicate high notes, Reba McEntire had heard enough. John Legend pushed the red button last to […]
