Donald Driver likely to be safe on 'Dancing'

By Lynn Hoppes



Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver continues his strong performance on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" finishing in the top five on Monday's live telecast.

Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd performed a sharp Argentine tango, and judge Carrie Ann Inaba called the dance "divine" and judge Bruno Tonioli called it "fantastic."

With only nine couples remaining in Season 14 of the show, it's important that Driver doesn't falter any week. So far he hasn't needed Packers Nation to help him as he's been near the top each week.

Latin heart throb William Levy and opera star Katherine Jenkins both scored 29 out of 30 points to lead the way. Singer Gavin DeGraw looked awful dancing the samba, scoring 19 points. In fact, judge Len Goodman said, "It was more of a shamba than a samba."
