- With the departure of Cloris Leachman, it could be argued that the competition really began Monday on "Dancing with the Stars" as the remaining six couples took on an individual dance and a team performance, which would count toward the scoring for the first time.
Due to ABC's election coverage on Tuesday night, the "Dancing" results show will air at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Warren & Kym: Ex-NFL star Warren Sapp was still lamenting his one missed step last week. As he learned the foxtrot, Kym took him to American Ballroom champion Nick Kosovich's dance studio to see what the dance is supposed to look like. Judge Len Goodman was back and said it wasn't a classic foxtrot and "it wasn't your best dance." Bruno Tonioli said that after a promising beginning, "the technique went into a recession." Carrie Ann Inaba asked Warren what the problem was and he admitted "My feet weren't right" because he wasn't wearing his own shoes. Scores: 7, 7, and 7. Total: 21
Susan & Tony: After breaking through her box, soap opera star Susan Lucci wasn't taking anything for granted. During rehearsals, Susan told Tony he sounded upset with her when she made small mistakes. He said he was trying to get some frustration and anger out of her for the paso doble. Bruno said Susan could ride that bull like a pro in a rodeo." Carrie Ann said Susan has struggled with claiming her power before on the dance floor in the past, but Carrie Ann forced her to look at the camera and declare, "I am doing good." Len said it right up with Susan's best dances and she did "a great job." Scores: 8, 8, and 8. Total: 24
Maurice & Cheryl: Olympic champion sprinter Maurice Greene was lacking chemistry with his partner Cheryl Burke last week. Cheryl worried that Maurice was holding back because he was afraid of missing steps. He hyper extended his leg during the team dance rehearsal, but he was determined to fight through the injury. The couple performed their high-energy cha cha cha, but would it be enough to impress the judges? Carrie Ann said it was nice to see Maurice bring his "A game." Len said it was "dazzling" and that it was Maurice's best dance of the season. Bruno said "happy days are here again for Maurice." Scores: 8, 9, and 8. Total: 25
Cody & Edyta: "Hannah Montana" star Cody Linley worked with pro Edyta Sliwinska for the first time because of Julianne Hough's recent surgery. Cody and Edyta visited Julianne, who was resting after surgery. Julianne suggested that Edyta get Cody into character for their Viennese waltz because that's when he excels. "Julianne, this one's for you," Cody said before his performance. Len said that as a couple, Cody & Edyta looked comfortable together, but that Cody didn't look comfortable doing the Viennese waltz. Bruno said "it was like watching a fledgling bird spreading his wings but not quite being able to take off." Carrie Ann thought it was great and that "Julianne would be proud." Scores: 8, 7, and 7. Total: 22
Lance & Lacey: Lance Bass finally took the top spot last week, but would he and partner Lacey Schwimmer be able to ride the momentum. Lacey wanted to do their rumba barefoot, but Lance, who'd broken a toe earlier, said he wouldn't be able to do it. But Lacey became frustrated with Lance's "negative attitude." She apologized, but would their chemistry suffer? Bruno said "barefoot in the park has never been more seductive and romantic." Carrie Ann said she was skeptical about the barefoot thing, but she said it was "fantastic" and "a great payoff." Len said "I didn't get it. It didn't enhance the performance at all. It was a distraction." He went on to say, "you don't need all this nonsense. Cut it out." Scores: 9, 7, and 9. Total: 25
Brooke & Derek: Model Brooke Burke was finally bumped from the top spot last week and she and partner Derek Hough sought to regroup with their foxtrot. During rehearsals, Derek told Brooke there were moments when he felt like he was dancing with a professional. Carrie Ann was excited about it and said that Derek was right, that Brooke was getting as good as some of the pros. Len said it was "more than the sum of its parts, it was truly fantastic." Bruno called it a brilliant performance from start to finish. Scores: 10, 10, and 10. Total: 30.
Team dances: For the first time, the six couples were split into two teams of six dancers: Team Cha Cha and Team Paso Doble. The judges would score each team, and those team scores would be added to each couple's individual scores.
Team Cha Cha: Cody & Edyta, Lance & Lacey, and Susan & Tony made up Team Cha Cha. Cody thought their strength was that they were all performers. Susan worried that she lost rehearsal time in New York and some of the other team members were worried that they were being held back. Len said the group did an "excellent job" and said Lance & Lacey saved the day with their solo. Bruno said it was "on the brink of disaster" but Lance & Lacey rescued it. Carrie Ann said the unison was terrible. She said it was "brutal to watch." Scores: 6, 7, and 7. Total: 20.
Team Paso Doble: Maurice declared Team Paso Doble the super team because they had a Super Bowl champion (Warren), a supermodel (Brooke), and a super sprinter (Maurice). Bruno said the team looked "invincible" and said they always looked like a team. Carrie Ann agreed, saying it was total teamwork and they all did great on their solos. Len said it's easier to keep a formation in a marching dance (the paso doble) than a syncopation Latin dance (the cha cha cha), but that they did well. Scores: 10, 9, and 10. Total: 29
