The name of the event was Wango Tango, and it seems this title caused Maria Menounos and Derek Hough to believe they were required to show off some of their dance moves.

The Dancing With The Stars couple put on quite the performance as they took to the red carpet at the KIIS FM event in Carson, California.

And the are-they-aren't-they couple weren't content with simply indulging in their own tango as professional dancer Derek then went behind the camera to snap photos of his TV presenter partner.

The pair seem to have their eye on the glitterball trophy more than ever due to their consistent high scores in the competition thus far and as a result appear to be practising their moves at every opportunity.

Maria, 33, showed off her fantastic figure in a mini dress at the Wango Tango event this evening while 26-year-old Derek looked casual in jeans and a white T-shirt under an unbuttoned grey shirt.

However the pair eventually grew tired of frolicking in front of the cameras and made their way inside the bash, which was held at the Home Depot Center.

Guests were treated to performances by the likes of Nicki Minaj, The Wanted, Pitbull, and Adam Levine of Maroon 5, who sang with Gym Class Heroes' Travie McCoy.

But it was Justin Bieber who worked the crowd like a pro and interacted with the excited audience even though he didn't sing - instead introducing Carly Rae Jepsen.

As well as an all-star line-up, several celebrities were in attendance simply to sit back, relax and watch the performances.
