Jacoby Jones gets emotional on Dancing With the Stars

Jones lost his high school during Katrina

BALTIMORE - Monday was prom night in the ballroom.  Even though Dorothy Hammil is gone, Team Baltimore stepped up and wowed the judges. 

Some are calling their rhumba hot, others say it was sexy.

Either way you could feel the passion between Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff.

We are used to seeing Jones' funny side, but last night he showed us he is also a sensitive guy.

The prom theme brought memories of Jones' own prom where he made a last minute decision to go by himself.  During the show we also learned that he got kicked out after playing some pranks.

When Jones was in college his high school was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, so he dedicated last night's dance to his alma mater.

Jones told viewers losing his school was tough, and the judges saw that emotion in his dancing.

The judges gave the pair a 24 out of 30. It was their highest score of the season thus far.

By the way, not only was Jones' mother cheering him on this week, his teammate Torrey Smith was also in the audience.

Smith was on his feet as the judges gave Jones their feedback.
