Jessie J tries to win over America on Dancing With The Stars... but is booed when she hands out low scores as a guest judge

By MailOnline Reporter

British pop star Jessie J had a primetime opportunity on Monday night to crack America.

The singer made a stunning impact with her opening performance on ABC's Dancing With The Stars and went on to belt out three songs while promoting her new album Sweet Talker.

But when the 26-year-old singer sat in as guest judge on the dancing competition show she soon proved there was one group of people she was not worried about trying to win over - the contestants.


British star: Jessie J performed and served as a guest judge on Monday's episode of Dancing With The Stars

Jessie found herself loudly booed by the crowd as gave the first dancer of the night, Antonio Sabato Jr dancing Bollywood, a lowly 6 - hiding behind her paddle as the crowd reacted angrily to her score for a dance Carrie Ann Inaba gave an 8.

And for the rest of the night Jessie consistently gave the lowest scores while dishing out harsh commentary, such as telling Jonathan Bennett his jitterbug left her ’nervous’ and ‘uncomfortable’ and pulling a scared face like she was on a terrifying fairground ride.

Even the dance she praised as her favorite of the night, Leah Thompson’s Broadway routine, only got an 8 from the star who was clearly not out to win over the contestants.

She also at times seemed to struggle to find the words for her commentary, such as when she told Tommy Chong: ‘It wasn’t like, “Wooah” but it was like, ‘Yeah!”.’

Host Tom Bergeron was soon teasing Jessie over her harsh scores, telling her: ‘Go with your gut, don’t let this crowd influence you in any way. But have somebody else start your car.’

Her harshness soon appeared to influence the rest of the judges, too, who were also booed for handing out unexpectedly low scores.


The judges: Carrie Anne Inaba, Jessie, Julie Hough and Bruno Tonioli dished out the scores

‘We need to get some happy pills out there or something,’ co-host Erin Andrews said at one point. ‘Harsh criticism.’

‘The whole judging tonight has been a little crazy,’ dance pro favorite Derek Hough said.

Jessie had worn an eye-catching short black dress with black ankle boots as she opened the show with a powerful and sexy version of her hit Bang Bang, seamlessly switching into Burnin’ Up, by now with Val Chmerkovskiy and Artem Chigvintsev shirtless as they danced by her side.

Later she appeared again, this time in the red sleeveless dress she wore while judging as she sang Masterpiece with Val and Peta Murgatroyd dancing in front of her.

Despite the sexiness of her own performances, she insisted she blushed with how risqué Janel Parrish and Artem were as they performed a burlesque routine to Jessie’s tune Mama Knows Best.

Janel - wearing a burgundy corset and stockings while Artem gyrated with no shirt on - immediately addressed the sexiness as she finished the dance, saying: ‘My dad is here - Daddy, I’m sorry!’

‘I know you just apologized to your dad, but I don’t think that my mum would ever expect a song that I wrote to have that dance routine,’ Jessie told her with a big smile. ‘I was like, “Woooah!” You really threw yourself into it.’

Janel and Artem were together as all the contestants had new partners for the week, as voted for by viewers - and it soon sent her usual partner Val into clear jealousy.

‘I’m not a jealous dude at all, but I’ve definitely noticed Artem wearing less cloths this week. I thought we were friends, bro,’ Val said, later pretending to strangle Artem after their performance.


Not jealous: Valentin Chmerkovskiy clapped for his dance partner Janel

Asked what she was thinking of during the sexiest move - where she writhed in Artem’s lap - Janel joked: ‘Puppies.’

But Carrie Ann Inaba said that while ‘there’s no denying that it was extremely sexy’ it ‘was not burlesque’.

‘Don’t worry love, I saw it,’ an excited Bruno Tonioli insisted. ‘Never too sexy for me! ‘There is not a person in the country who will need Viagra tonight - you saved them a lot of money.’


Keeping it light: Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews kept the mood light to counter the harsh judging

The judges’ daggers really came out for NACAR champ Michael Waltrip, however, when his disco dance with Witney Carson got just 5s from them all, almost unheard of.

‘You put all the polish on the car bonnet and there was nothing left for the routine,’ Bruno told Michael, who was wearing a fake 70s mustache and flared jeans and a red shirt.

’I don’t think you did one step on time.’

‘When you can’t dance, make us laugh,’ Carrie Ann told him, stressing that they were now too far into the competition for that to still be enough. ‘Once again you had me giggling - but I don’t want to giggle anymore.’

For once Jessie J had the best praise, telling an uncomfortable looking Michael: ‘It wasn’t amazing but it wasn’t terrible - it was consistent.’


Low scores: Michael Waltrip and new partner Witney Carson got lowly 5's across the board

Tommy Chong, dancing the mambo with Emma Slater, also suffered, getting three 6s and a 5 despite the audience going wild for him.

‘This was the first time I’ve seen you looking almost tired,’ Julianne Hough told him, with Carrie Ann having also called it ‘lacklustre’.

‘I look tired because I’m old,’ Tommy said later. ‘The face fools you but the body’s working.’

But Julianne warned him: ‘I feel that we’ve seen everything and you’re running out of material.’

Jonathan Bennett fared only slightly better, getting all 6s for his jitterbug with Peta Murgatroyd, with Joey Fatone singing the Stray Cats’ Rock This Town for his performance.

‘There were moments of brilliance - but so much of it was wrong,’ Carrie Ann told him to loud boos from the audience.

‘It made me uncomfortable - I was nervous,’ Jessie J agreed. ‘I couldn’t relax and enjoy it.’

Julianne also agreed, saying: ‘It’s true, I was holding my breathe but not in a good way.

‘You could see it on Peta’s face - there was a fear that was happening in that dance.’


Tough judges: Jonathan Bennett reacted to getting all 6s for his jitterbug with Peta Murgatroyd

Only Duck Dynsaty’s teenage star Sadie Robertson truly got to see the judges’ best side, scoring all 9s for her Charleston with Derek Hough that Carrie Ann called ‘this close to perfection’.

‘It was really clean, you’re lines were great,’ Jessie J said, before poking fun at herself by adding: ‘Look at me talking all technical.’

While Alfonso Ribeiro did well, getting two 9s and two 8s, it was still a far cry from last week’s perfect 10s for bringing back the Carlton.


Good scores: Sadie Robertsonand Derek Hough got high marks from the judges

‘That was the first partnership that I believed tonight,’ Julianne told him after his sexy flamenco with Cheryl Burke.

‘The chemistry, the connection, was so amazing. I’m so glad that we got to see this side of you.’

After Bruno joked that they were ‘starring in Lust in The Dust’ as the ‘chemistry was scorching’, Alfonso was quick to point out there is only one woman in his life - giving a shout out to his wife Angela on their second wedding anniversary.

‘I think the lesson we learned tonight is once you’ve danced a hot dance with another woman, it’s always good to give a shout out to your loving wife,’ host Tom Bergeron joked.

Leah Thompson and Val Chmerkovskiy - with graying hair and pretending to be a retired ballroom dancer using a walker - got the same score as Alfonso with two 9s and two 8s.

‘Off the wall and insanely funny,’ Bruno said. ‘It worked a treat for me.’

Carrie Ann, meanwhile, insisted: ‘It was way whack-a-doodle but I actually loved it.’

Jessie J told Leah: ‘For me out of the whole night your acting and dancing was the best.’

She then joked of Val’s walker: ‘The only thing I will say is if you do have one of those don’t try it at home. My nan is going to be thinking she can do that now.’


Strong reviews: Valentin and Lea Thompson received high praise from the judges

Despite getting just 8s for their hip hop routine, Bethany Mota left a big impression on Mark Ballas - leaving her lipstick all over his face from kisses after their dance.

‘You’ve got a little somethin’ somethin’ here,’ Erin told him, wiping off the rouge from around his lips. ‘You’ve got it on the nose, you’ve got it up the side…’

‘What - you guys actually touched lips?’ said Bethany’s usual partner Derek Hough, pretending to cry from jealousy.

In their judging, Carrie Ann told the YouTube star: ‘For sure you have swag! I thought it was fantastic.’

Bruno, meanwhile, praised her for ‘blossoming in confidence week after week’ and said it reminded him of Madonna’s Into The Groove era

‘She has no idea what I’m talking about,’ Bruno added, referring to Bethany’s young age making her too young for the Material Girl’s iconic 1985 song.


Good advice: Julianne offered the contestants dancing tips with her criticism

‘You lost her at Madonna, actually,’ Bergeron joked.

While the contestants were upset with the low scores, the biggest embarrassment was saved for Tony Dovolani - and his cringeworthy 2005 audition tape for the show.

He was shown in an outrageous animal print 80’s style top as he bragged about being ‘one of the bad boys of ballroom dancing’.

‘I think I was wearing a blouse,’ he said with horror after watching the tape.

‘And what was with the hair?’
