It's still anybody's Mirror Ball trophy.
The week seven elimination in Dancing With the Stars of Jaleel White and partner Kym Johnson, one of the strongest at the start of the competition, proves that with each passing week the celebrity needs to perform like it's their last dance—because it could be—and that's why Roshon Fegan and Chelsea Hightower survived to dance another week.
That's also Maria Menounos' approach scoring a perfect score of 30 for her Paso Doble with partner Derek Hough. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba commented that if Menounos continues to improve, she's definitely a threat to current female frontrunner Katherine Jenkins. Menounos got a 27 for her Tango.
Now with a field of only six teams remaining and a double elimination on Tuesday, owner and Menlo-Atherton grad and her partner Latin soap opera star William Levy, must continue to hold their own—and get your votes. The judges gave their Waltz nines across the board for a 27, and a 26 for their Paso Doble.
"We after week you're up and down like a fiddle-less elbow—tonight you are up," said Judge Len Goodman.
Team Fuego remains a contender for the trophy as are celebrity Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd who continued their impressive and consistant push to the finals also securing a score of 27 for their Waltz and a 26 for their Paso Doble.
"I love your intensity when you dance," said Judge Carrie Ann Inaba after the Waltz. "You're pristine and you're so sharp and your determination makes your moves so strong. I love your regalness when you dance."
Despite Melissa Gilbert and partner Maks Chmerkovskiy, less than stellar Waltz—it scored a 21—they held their own with a 26 in the Paso Doble, like Levy and Driver did.
And one of the sweethearts of the competition, singer Katherine Jenkins delivered another pair of great performance with a 27 for each of the dances.
Dancing With the Stars airs Monday on ABC at 8 p.m. and tonight there's another dance and another round of votes. And since Tuesday there will be a double elimination, the audiences' votes count even more.
