One would assume ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” has a pretty big budget, being a prime-time, much-promoted program. So you would think the producers could have afforded to buy Jacoby Jones a shirt to wear during his Week 3 performance on Monday.

Maybe being shirtless helped him with the judges, who fell over themselves praising the Ravens wide receiver/kick returner’s performance with partner Karina Smirnoff. They were definitely ready to rumba. Jones continues to show increased confidence in his movements and doesn’t miss a step when working in concert with Smirnoff.

"This had a refinement. It had a quality of movement," judge Len Goodman said. "You did a good job there, Jacoby!"

The Jones-Smirnoff pair scored 24 out of 30 from the judges, tied for second-highest of the night.

Playing off this week’s prom theme, viewer voting announced Tuesday included picking a prom king and queen, and Jones was voted king.

That’s a whole lot better than what happened at his actual high school prom, where, as Jones told the story on Monday, he acted the fool and got tossed out early.
