Last night, the remaining eight couples went head-to-head in an all-out Country-themed fiasco, tractors, cows, campfires, boots and much more.
Sabrina Bryan and Apolo Anton Ohno both received the first perfect scores for their Rumba and Viennese Waltz, respectively.
Gilles Marini and Shawn Johnson both brought out the sex appeal to their Cha-Cha-Cha's.
Melissa Rycroft's Viennese Waltz was beautiful and her balletic steps were amazing and I felt they deserved a perfect 30 as well.
Emmitt Smith fell to the bottom of the leader board with a less than appealing Foxtrot.
If you missed the performance last night, or you just want to see a slight recap, visit the official Dancing with the Stars website.
The scores for last night's show are as follows:
- Gilles and Peta: 27.5
- Sabrina and Louis: 30.0
- Kelly and Val: 27.0
- Melissa and Tony: 29.5
- Shawn and Derek: 28.0
- Kirstie and Maksim: 27.5
- Apolo and Karina: 30.0
- Emmitt and Cheryl: 26.5
At this time, it is anybody's game to make it into next week.
All of these All-Stars have pulled out all of the stops and have displayed emotions that most of them aren't comfortable displaying.
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough have become "The Dancing Sweethearts." They are so likable that it is practically impossible to see them going home even with the injury.
Apolo Anton Ohno is really watchable and is finally starting to step it up. His perfect score and his fan base will keep him in past this week.
Melissa Rycroft's injury has gained bit of a sympathy vote and she has made it further than most people thought because of her talent and her 'Girl Next Door' demeanor.
Sabrina Bryan has regained her title as the "Voluptuous Blond Bombshell." Her Rumba has sealed her deal into next week.
Gilles Marini seems to have fallen under the radar, which is strange because he is the sexiest thing on two legs but his constant sex appeal is getting a little old.
Emmitt Smith is actually starting to get on my nerves. He has charm, but his ego is really starting to show off in his performances. His performances are lacking but I am sure his fan base will keep him in for a bit longer.
Kirstie Alley is one of the most enjoyable people to watch on this show because she is the underdog. Her technique is miles apart from the other contestants on the show but her performance value and her heart brings everyone to their knees.
Finally, Kelly Monaco has come in on the short end for me. Her chemistry with Val has seemed to hit a few bumps since she did that Contemporary routine with him. I don't see her past this week.
Next week, we have Fusion Week, which is combining two dance styles into one and making it the dancers' own. I am excited to see how this is going to work. I am expecting dances like the Cha-Cha and the Samba to be combined and the Viennese Waltz and the Rumba.
