The eight remaining couples of Dancing With The Stars hit the stage Monday night during a special ‘Moving Night’ edition of the hit show.
Coming in first place was Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough’s Pretty Woman-inspired tango. The duo received a standing ovation from the crowd to go along with their almost perfect score of 29. Judge Len called it “the best dance of the season so far.” Carrie Ann Inaba added, “Every moment, you could have taken a snapshot and it would have just been art.”
Olympic ice skater Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya found themselves in second place this week, ending their two consecutive weeks at the top. They received a high score of 27 for their rumba dance to “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing,” from Armageddon.
Jake Pavelka found himself in 3rd place for the first time this season with the 23 score he received for donning his tighty whiteys while dancing the cha-cha to “Old Time Rock & Roll” from Risky Business. In fourth place was Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The duo received a score of 22 for their Pulp Fiction dance. Perhaps it’s just me, but I thought they performed better than a 22.
In last place for the second straight week was reality mom Kate Gosselin, who seemed to take a few step backwards after receiving the Judges’ praises for her performance last week. Kate was shown once again in rehearsals bitching at questioning her partner Tony Dovolani every step of the way. She looked to be taking a stroll rather than dancing as she attempted to fox trot to the Breakfast Club movie. Kate deservedly received harsh criticism for the judges. Bruno called the performance “catatonic.” He added, “Tony could have gotten more life out of a frock on a coat hanger.” Ouch.
