Dancing With The Stars 2012 Maria Menounos and Derek Hough slammed by Len Goodman, video below. By normal standards, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough had another standout performance on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars. While judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli raved about the pair’s Viennese Waltz, Len Goodman wasn’t impressed.

“You disappointed me,” Goodman told Menunous and Hough. A shocked Inaba and Tonioli went on to give the couple 10s, and were further dismayed when Goodman issued an 8. Menounos and Hough were shown struggling in rehearsals, but on the ballroom floor the two once again wowed as they performed the dramatic dance wearing shades of grey costumes. Bruno called it “heavenly fluidity,” which brought Maria to tears. “I loved this dance and I loved the music and I love dancing with him,” explained Maria. Carrie Ann was also welling up. “Something magical is happening between you, beside the dance,” she said. Len quibbled that Maria “wasn’t in hold” for enough of the dance, and the crowd promptly booed him. “I was a little bit of jerk,” Derek admitted to host Brooke Burke-Charvet of his rehearsal behavior.
