J.Lo and a quesadilla inspire performances on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Amber Rose let out her inner Jennifer Lopez for a booty-licious salsa performance on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Donning some flashy street clothes, Rose and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, gave salsa a hip-hop twist when they stepped onto the dance floor on Monday night, and performed a sexy, twerk-filled routine to J.Lo’s hit, “Booty.”

The judges didn’t seem too impressed and gave the couple 24 out of 40 possible points, putting them in jeopardy of being eliminated during Tuesday night’s live results show.

Chmerkovskiy took to Instagram to support his dance partner, writing, “I don't care what they say, my Philly homie brought straight fire to the ballroom tonight! I'll go into Salsa Battle with @amberrose against anyone out there! Any damn time!”

This is the second week in a row that Rose flirts with elimination.

In a shortened one-hour episode, that ended before the start of the presidential debate, all the dancing couples were matched against each other to fight for immunity. Rose competed against “The Brady Bunch” actress, Maureen McCormick, who received 28 points.

Joining Rose in the group of those who might go home was bad boy swimmer Ryan Lochte, who looked to bounce back after coming in second-to-last the previous week.

However, the judges were not impressed with his and partner Cheryl Burke's dance, earning only 25 points, while racecar driver James Hinchcliffe received 29 points to win immunity.

The others in jeopardy are Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Gov. Rick Perry, reality star Terra Jole and actress Marilu Henner.

Safe until next week are McCormick, Hinchcliffe, Calvin “Megatron” Johnson Jr., Vanilla Ice and Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez.

The 16-year-old gold medalist shed her “cute” image with a red-hot tango with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy that got her the top score of the night. In a video package before the dance, Hernandez said she was terrified of the dance because she feared that she would not be able to channel the required emotions.

"Marilu, because she has much more experience than I do just in life in general, she'll be able to show off those emotions when she's dancing," she said. “It's not like I've ever had a boyfriend or anything. I mean, I sleep with a teddy bear at night.”

However, she killed it and received 31 points.

After dancing she told host Tom Bergeron that the thought of a cheese quesadilla helped with her performance.

"I was telling Val, I was struggling to put in that emotion, so I was like, 'I gotta pretend like I'm smelling a really good quesadilla,’” she quipped.

“Dancing with the Stars” airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
