James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd Kiss on Dancing with the Stars Finale – WATCH!

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss



James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd had a big kiss on the first part of the “Dancing with the Stars” finale on Monday.

During the first round, the pair performed a tango… complete with a passionate lip-lock. That earned them a 29 (and reheated real-life romance speculation), a score they achieved again with their freestyle.

The urban street-inspired routine had Carrie Ann Inaba calling Maslow a “star” and the “most versatile” of all the contestants. “Every time you come out and you show us something new. You killed it,” she exclaimed.

Bruno Tonioli declared Maslow a “new post-apocalyptic action hero,” and commended him for keeping up with the other pro dancers. “[They] were amazing, and you were right up there with them,” said the judge.

And Len Goodman said he “loved” the concept, and liked both the “attack” and “energy.” He told Maslow, “You came out and gave it everything.”

But despite getting a total score of 58 for the night, the couple was shockingly eliminated at the very end, missing their chance at the Mirror Ball. Check out the videos below, and tell us of you think Maslow deserved to go all the way!
