James Maslow Jives & Cody Simpson Jazzes Up “Dancing With the Stars” Week 3

dwts-week3-040114James Maslow defied gravity while Cody Simpson showed off his quick feet during the third week of competition on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Both guys were safe from elimination on Monday as Billy Dee Williams withdrew from the competition due to medical reasons. James kicked off the show with his Jive dedicated to 2007, which was a big year for him. James talked about overcoming bullying and learning to believe in himself. We have a feeling his bullies are definitely paying attention to him now.

James earned his highest scores yet during his jive which included a backflip and a freeze on the judges table. Cody dedicated his dance to 2010 which was the year he and his family packed up and moved to Los Angeles to help Cody pursue his dreams of music.

Cody & Witney danced the jive to his song “Surfboard” and it rocked. Watch both Cody & James’ dances below.
