Jennifer Grey: 'Dancing With the Stars' partner Derek Hough 'cried' at perfect scores
Jennifer Grey joked that her "Dancing With the Stars" partner Derek Hough was "crying like a baby" after the couple earned perfect scores for both of their dances on Monday.
Grey, a 50-year-old actress who starred in the hit 1980s films "Dirty Dancing" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", is one of four remaining celebrity contestants on the current 11th season of the ABC ballroom dancing Show along with Bristol Palin, actor Kyle Massey and singer Brandy.
Grey and Hough have earned high scores during the entire season so far and on Monday, the judges gave them a 30 out of 30 for their cha cha cha and 30 points out of 30 for their waltz.
"He was crying like a baby but I got him to pull it together," Grey told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "I said, 'Pull it together, Derek, it's just a dance show.'"
Hough won the previous 10th season of "Dancing With the Stars" with partner Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls. He also won the seventh season with Brooke Burke, who is now a co-host of the series along with Tom Bergeron.
