Dancing with the Stars is known for its entertaining performances. Sometimes, the routines are light and amusing. Other times, they are dramatic and brooding.

Then there are those performances that are so steamy that you need a cold beverage (or shower) after watching them. These ballroom interludes can lead to real-life romances. Buckle up, and let’s take a look back at the sexiest DWTS routines. And you’re welcome!

10. Paige VanZant and Alan Bersten – Salsa

Paige VanZant, who is a mixed martial artist, was a cast member during Season 22. She was partnered with Mark Ballas.

Mark had to bow out of their salsa routine because of an injury, and dance pro Alan Bersten stepped in. Once Alan and Paige hit the dance floor, sparks flew.

Their body contact and sensational lifts displayed their racy chemistry. Paige even crawled down Alan’s back at one point. All I can say is this salsa was anything but mild.

9. Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough – Lambada

Former Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa danced with Derek Hough during Season 9 of DWTS. Their lambada routine showcased a bare-chested Derek with Joanna’s legs wrapped around his waist.

The couple had sexy, close body contact and fantastic lifts. And the final pose was certainly provocative. Another gem from Derek.

8. Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke – Salsa

During Season 8, Gilles Marini was paired with Cheryl Burke. This duo had a flirtatious chemistry that was highlighted in their salsa.

Their playful and fun connection elevated this sizzling performance. Gilles’ hip action, body rolls, and overall confidence helped make this salsa extra spicy. Just the way we like it.

7. Mel B and Maksim Chmerkovskiy – Paso Doble

Mel B and Maksim Chmerkovskiy nabbed second place during Season 5 of DWTS. And with this powerful routine, it is easy to see why.

Not only was this Paso Doble dramatic, but the glances between this couple were smoldering. They truly turned up the heat whenever they had body contact. Mel B’s confidence and assurance didn’t hurt, either.

6. Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy –  Samba

The Bachelorette star Gabby Windey and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy served up a seductive and flirty samba during Season 31.

During the routine, Val removed his shirt and grabbed Gabby around the waist with it, pulling her in closer. Gabby’s racy hip action and self-assurance made this routine hot.

5.  Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough – Cha–Cha

Apolo Anton Ohno is a speed skater who won eight Olympic medals. It was magical when he teamed up with Julianne Hough during Season 4 of DWTS. They took home the Mirrorball trophy.

The dancing partners’ body connection oozed sexuality during their steamy cha-cha. Julianne and Apolo demonstrated hip action for days. It was one of the sexiest dances to grace the ballroom.

4. JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson – Argentine Tango

Singer JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson were the first same-sex couple on DWTS. During their redemption dance for Season 30, the duo danced the Argentine Tango.

While the judges had been critical of Jenna and JoJo’s chemistry in their earlier Argentine Tango, there were no concerns in this routine.

The attraction between the duo was palpable. And with their close body contact, sensual gazes, and stunning lifts, this performance sizzled.

3. James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd – Samba

Season 18 competitor James Maslow, of the band Big Time Rush, made an impression with this routine. He and his partner, Peta Murgatroyd, were working at a gas station.

Fittingly, they danced to the song Gasolina by Daddy Yankee. But this samba was seared into the memory of DWTS fans because of how naughty and overtly sexual it was.

James helped Peta strip off her uniform to reveal that she was wearing a bright red bra, panties, garter, and stockings. Just the normal uniform for gas station attendants. She later repaid the favor and helped James remove his shirt.

And in the words of DWTS judge Bruno Tonioli, “That was filthy. That was dirty. And I Ioved it!” Bruno wasn’t alone.

2. Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke – Argentine Tango

This couple was the only dancing duo to appear twice on our list. And with good reason. This Argentine Tango is one of the best dances ever performed on DWTS.

The simmering chemistry between Gilles and Cheryl, along with the sensual eye contact and a near-kiss, set the dance floor on fire. Every lift and movement was achingly seductive. And Gilles played the suave leading man to perfection. This dance was pure fire.

1. Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko – Argentine Tango

Actress Jana Kramer was paired with Gleb Savchenko in Season 23 of DWTS. They danced a smoldering Argentine Tango to the Selena Gomez hit, Hands to Myself.

The sweaty routine started in a bed. It was moody, sensuous, and filled with breathtaking lifts. At the end of the dance, the duo moved to a running shower. You may need a cold one after watching this red-hot dance.

This Argentine Tango is, without a doubt, the sexiest DWTS routine.
