Dancing With The Stars – Top 7 Pairs – RECAP

The ringer Nicole and Derek were at the top of he leaderboard again with 36 out of 40 points. They were the last couple standing at the end of the Swing Dance Marathon, and their samba scored 26 points. It would have been even higher (they got a 10 from Bruno)  if Len wasn’t such a cranky-pants tonight.  Only Chad and Cheryl earned an 8 from Len–every other dance got a 7.

In second place was Erin and Maks with 34 points. They earned 9 points in the Swing Marathon, coming in second place. They would have earned higher marks for their Samba if it wasn’t for Len and his crappy 7.

The lowest number of votes went to Pam and Damien, who earned a respectable 30 out of 40 points.  Really, I don’t have a clue who is going home this week…

Live blog and videos after the JUMP…

The remaining 7 couples dance the samba and the Argentine tango, and they all participate in a swing dance marathon…

Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower – Samba – Oops. Jake tripped. Len says, “The performance was more honest, I’m going to forgive the mistake, very polished.” Bruno says, “You didn’t wiggle correctly.” Carrie Ann says, “You push too hard, but if you want to be at the top, you have to connect with the music.” – Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 7, Bruno 7 – 21 – 4 – 251-800-868-3404VIDEO

Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya – Samba – Anna flipped Evan over and he hit his head–nasty. He had a slight concussion – Very entertainment. Sexy, even. Bruno says, “Your legs were turned out, it stops the hips moving the right way.” Carrie Ann says, “You lost the battle with the Samba, I live your lines, but it doesn’t suit the dance.” Len says, “It was your worse dance, it was far too balletic.” Oh. Wow. They hated it! – Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 7, Bruno – 7 – 21 – 6 – 27 – Their lowest score ever. 1-800-868-3406VIDEO

Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel – Argentine Tango – OMG. A humorous Argentine Tango? Involving food? Hm… Kudos to Louis for trying to up Niecy’s game. The lifts didn’t look easy. Carrie Ann says, “It’s nice to see you dancing, there was a new attitude, you were in the zone. You went for the lift. Didn’t need the comedy.” Len says, “I didn’t think the comedy interfered with the performance, it lacked a bit of intensity, but I thought it was good.” “You put a lot of work in your footwork, it did lack a slight intensity, you worked on it, it’s good and it shows.” – Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 7, Bruno – 7 – 21 – 5 – 261-800-868-3405VIDEOVIDEO

Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy – Samba – Erin is scantily clad on top with big purple feathers on the bottom. Nevertheless, that was pretty good. Audience is on their feet, Len says, “You’re going to get another 7 tonight. You come out and show me a proper dance. She should be competing with Nicole and those people.” Maks rolls his eyes and throws his shirt at Len. Bruno doesn’t agree, “She did dance all the way through. This is a girl who can do it. It was exciting.” Carrie Ann says, “You nailed it!” Carrie Ann – 9, Len – 7, Bruno – 9 – 25 – 9 – 341-800-868-3403VIDEO

Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke – Argentine Tango – Manhandle me! says Cheryl… Compared to Niecy’s Tango, there isn’t much dancing going on here. Bruno says, “Strong, powerful, demented…I was hard on you..tonight you proved you can dance.” Carrie Ann, “Tonight, you nailed it. Dramatic, arrogant, sensual, lines were gorgeous.” Len says, “You grew tonight.” – Carrie Ann – 8 – Len – 8, Bruno – 8 – 24 – 7 – 311-800-868-3401VIDEOVIDEO

Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough – Samba – Uh oh. Nicole thought she was doing the salsa. Oh, just give Nicole her perfect score and get it over with. Audience on their feet. Carrie Ann, “That was just ridiculous!” Len says, “For me, the difficultly of that routine was great, it was a hodgepodge of sexy moves and gyrations, not a Samba.” Bruno says, “You are one singular sensation. The dance was superlative..you’ve got nothing to worry about.” Carrie Ann – 9, Len – 7, Bruno 10 – 26 – 10 – 361-800-868-3408VIDEO

Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood – Argentine Tango – Wow. That was very sultry! Len says, “You can do seduction very well, you got the flavor, it was a bit scruffy, but the lifts were good.” Bruno says, “Another great character from Pamela, you play it so well, you are living the part.” Carrie Ann says, “I wanted to see a little more technique in your legs.” Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 7, Bruno – 8 – 22 – 8 – 301-800-868-3411VIDEO

Swing Dance Marathon – The couples dance in a group. The judges knock off the couples one by one. The longer they stay, the more points they get. – Jake and Chelsie – 4 points, Niecy and Louis – 5, Evan and Anna – 6, Chad and Cheryl – 7, Pamela and Damien – 8, Erin and Maks – 9, Nicole and Derek – 10 – Len bitches that he was overruled a lot, but felt the best pair won. – VIDEO
