However, while it was the moment fans have been waiting for, it was nothing more than a choreographed move as they hit the dance floor for a very sexy tango. In fact, viewers were let in on the act as the Big Time Rush star suggested the move to his beautiful blonde partner during rehearsals earlier in the week.
Enlarge The moment fans have been waiting for! Peta Murgatroyd and James Maslow finally gave viewers what they wanted as they enjoyed a passionate embrace during Monday night's Dancing With The Stars performance, but sadly it was all part of the act as they executed a very sexy tango 'When I pull you in, I'm not pulling you in just to look at you,' he told her, adding rather awkwardly: When showtime arrived, however, she kept it together and they executed the passionate embrace to perfection, with anyone just tuning in to the show easily believing them to be a real-life couple.
Indeed, the lip-lock certainly had the desired effect, with the couple's smouldering chemistry and impressive dance moves to Miley Cyrus's Adore You earning them an impressive 29 out of a possible 30 points. The Big Time Rush star had his professional dance partner in fits of laughter as he suggested they lock lips during the number, stuttering awkwardly, 'We should probably actually, like, not full-blown make-out, but, like, actually have a kiss' Unfortunately it wasn't enough to save them from elimination, and they left the competition in fourth place - just one spot short of competing in Tuesday night's finale.
The eventual winners of the 18th season of the hit show were Olympic ice-dance champion Meryl Davis and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Taking to Twitter on Tuesday morning, New Zealand-born professional dancer Peta took the opportunity to share her feelings on the season post-elimination.

While it may have been choreographed, the pair certainly had plenty of passion as they went in for the kill, steaming up the dance floor to Miley Cyrus's Adore You, which earned them an impressive 29 out of 30 points 'Sure we hoped to go all the way this season, but to be honest I feel like I've already won ;. I believe life isn't about material things I feel we already have the trophy.
However, while they had a great time, the year-old then headed off to the UK to tour with his band and the year-old dancer didn't see or hear from him again until he was assigned to be her partner. The pretty year-old New Zealand-born dancer took to Twitter on Tuesday to share her thoughts on the season post-elimination, gushing over her year-old partner The official line-up of stars was revealed on Good Morning America on March 4.
While there was much interest over their relationship and speculation that working together so intimately could result in a budding romance, James insisted that he didn't want to complicate matters by crossing that line during the competition.
