'Dancing's' Hip Hop Hysterics
The competition is getting fierce on "Dancing with the Stars!" Len was out for the evening and Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley stepped in to offer his two Euros.
Lance Bass and partner Lacey Schwimmer hit the top slot with their "Tutti-Frutti" jive, and received a rehearsal visit from former *NSYNC members. The couple scored a personal best of 27, after last week's disappointment of 21.
Sexpot Brooke Burke's disrupted tendon held her back during the rumba with partner Derek Hough. A clean shaven Maurice Greene and partner Cheryl Burke took on the Viennese waltz, but didn't win over judges.
This could be the week Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman packs her bags. The crowd pleaser struggled her way through a Cha-Cha, despite a sensational twirling finish, but received a measly 15 -- lowest score of the night.
The highlight was the group hip-hip routine where all the contestants and their professional partners showed off their "skills." This was an opportunity for the pro dancers to really shine, and for the stars to stumble.
Daytime TV diva Susan Lucci looked the most clueless on the dance floor, with "Hip-Hop Granny" Cloris relegated to swaying in the back. Nonetheless, the routine received a standing ovation.
Find out who will go home during the "Dancing with the Stars" results show tonight on ABC.
