Good luck fending off those dating rumors now, you two!Romance wasn't the evening's only big emotion, as kisses were far fewer than tears on Monday night.
For the audience, the year was 2012 and the song was, well, the unrecognizable version of "Material Girl" the house band performed -- that's what was playing as Maria and pro Derek Hough put on a romance-charged rumba, complete with a kiss -- or two.
The slow dance, often referred to as the "vertical expression of a horizontal desire," certainly lived up to its sexy reputation as the pair stretched out on the dance floor at one point and showed just how cozy they can get (at least in primetime).
The routine was their best of the season despite Maria's sometime bothersome (sometimes not) cracked rib woes.
The judges raved about it, with head judge Len Goodman calling it a "mix of the ballroom with a little touch of the bedroom," before handing out a matching set of 9s.
Afterward co-host Brooke Burke tried to get to the bottom of the ballroom behavior.
"Twitter-nation is going crazy wanting to know if you guys actually kissed," she told the couple, who remained mum on the action.
Then again, there's no need to talk when the lip lock was caught on tape.
Bergeron told viewers that Katherine 'will be able to continue in the competition' if she got through, and the singer showed no sign of injury as she and Mark jumped up and down at hearing they were safe.
William Levy and partner Cheryl Burke were the next couple to be told they were in the final after kicking the results show off with an encore of last night's samba, which earned them a perfect score from the judges.
