J.R. Martinez’s “Dancing with the Stars” Game Changer

Every season there is one dance that re-defines a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Sometimes it’s for the better, others for the worst. This season All My Children‘s J.R. Martinez turned the show up side down as danced the rumba with his partner Karina Smirnoff on last night’s show.  J.R. selected the song “If You’re Reading This” by Tim McGraw, that details a letter sent from a soldier to his wife that explains if she’s reading the letter it means he won’t be coming home. Martinez, himself a war veteran who was scarred for life while fighting in Iraq, has been doing well all season, but this dance brought the entire audience to their feet for a thunderous ovation. When the season began, many picked Martinez to be one of the first eliminated, as he was not as well-known as some of the other competitors.  After last night’s game changing performance, he may  now be the one to take the top prize.
