Pop Star Belinda Carlisle and Jonathan Roberts (FIRST VOTED OFF)


Tonight's results:

Actress Denise Richards and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Dance: Samba

Judges Scores: CAI  5    LG 6    BT 5

Total Score:  16

Comments: Me: She doesn't look very comfortable with this choreography.  And the song is just horrible. LG The samba is the hardest of all the Latin dances. I thought you coped well. You need more hips.  BT  That was so flat. It was a waffle. We are going backwards. It didn't have the party feel.  CAI  You have to work on masking your facial expressions. Work on your arms. No pancake hands. Work on that.


Country singer Chuck Wicks and girlfriend and two-time DWTS champ Julianne Hough

Dance:  Fox Trot

Judges Scores: CAI  8    LG 7   BT 8

Total Score:  23

Comments: Me  He is looking much better in terms of form this week.  BT I'm glad to see you in the driving seat, finally. You are starting to dance with Julianne. CAI  Someone is showing us that he could be a contender. Posture was fantastic.  LG I thought your hold was good, posture was good. Good, but not great.


Playboy Playmate Holly Madison and first-time Dancing pro Dmitry Chaplin

Dance:  Samba

Judges Scores: CAI  5    LG 6   BT 6

Total Score: 17

Comments: Me She's still very uncomfortable and stiff. This is a tough season in that respect.  CAI Holly, that was rough to watch. You guys look great, but you are totally disjointed. Your foot came off the ground. You have to gain strength. LG You need to work on your feet.  BT The feet were not going the right way. But there is plenty to look at.


Reality star Steve-O and Lacey Schwimmer

Dance:  Fox Trot

Judges Scores: CAI  5    LG  5  BT 5

Total Score:  15

Comments: Me  A little awkward, but he's rallying. LG I've always wondered what the O stood for. Ovation. You had a couple of moments that were good. BT What a shame. You came out as the model of propriety.  But you lost it. You are going the right way. CAI You impressed me. You learn from your mistakes.


Former NFL star Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska

Dance:  Samba

Judges Scores: CAI 7     LG  6  BT 7

Total Score:  20

Comments: He is a crowd pleaser! BT For a guy of your size, you are pretty light on your feet, and you've got rhythm. Have more fun with it.  CAI  Go for a little more difficulty and you'll do fine.  LG  I like your work ethic very much. I would like to see more rhythm in your hips and less in your shoulders.


Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and season six champ Mark Ballas

Dance:  Fox Trot

Judges Scores: CAI  9    LG 9   BT 9

Total Score:  27

Comments: Now that's what I'm talking about! She is the youngest and shortest competitor yet. I think her gymnastics definitely gives her an edge.  Why do they always put her in these side cut out unflattering outfits?  CAI  You were like a beautiful, elegant princess. It was oozing and great.  LG  You were fluid. That was your best dance so far.  BT It was like watching a beautiful, bejeweled hummingbird.


Actor Gilles Marini and two-time DWTS champ Cheryl Burke

Dance:  Samba

Judges Scores: CAI  9    LG 9   BT 9

Total Score:  27

Comments: Love the bit with his mom!  Love the outfits. He is so hot! Cheryl must be an amazing teacher! Standing ovation.  LG You are a really good dancer. It lacked a little bit of rhythm in the open rock sets. You just made a hard dance look easy.  BT You came out here like a throbbing red hot poker. CAI That was excellent. You shook things that I didn't know guys couldn't shake.  Me  Although I want Maks to stay in the game, I'm so over Denise Richards. I'm throwing my towel in with Gilles/Cheryl and Shawn/Mark teams.


Actor David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson

Dance:  Fox Trot

Judges Scores: CAI  8    LG 8   BT 8

Total Score:  24

Comments: Me  He has made major improvements! I'm surprised. Nice kicks. Nice form!  BT You've taken the FT to Broadway. It was like seeing Ben Vereen take the Fox Trot Fosse.  CAI That was nice. I didn't know that you were a Rockette. I loved it. LG Best dance you've done.


Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak and Karina Smirnoff

Dance:  Samba

Judges Scores: CAI 4     LG 3   BT 3

Total Score:  10

Comments: Despite a bad hamstring, he decided to let the show go on. He's not doing too badly. Still awkward. And he did a semi worm! He does have a great attitude. CAI You are so cute, but at some point the novelty wears off. It was like an earth worm. I do love the way you approach it.  LG I think the dances are killing you. For me, it was terrible from start to finish.  BT On your knees and beg forgiveness. It was just terrible.


The Bachelor's Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani

Dance:  Fox Trot

Judges Scores: CAI  9    LG  9  BT 9

Total Score:  27

Comments: Tony was definitely lucky to get Melissa as a partner.  They do well together. LG You've got great musicality. Your feet need work, but overall fantastic.  BT Beautiful to look at, easy to love.  What a beautiful instrument. CAI

You are a beautiful dancer, but there is something lacking. You need to challenge yourself a little bit more.


Rapper Lil' Kim and season seven champ Derek Hough

Dance:  Samba

Judges Scores: CAI  8    LG 8    BT 9

Total Score:  25

Comments: This is a great dance for her. It really shows off her assets, so to speak. BT It worked for me. You are a pocket sized Venus with a super sized sex appeal. You sold it.  CAI  That was hot. You draw us in. Great job.  LG You must have a bionic booty. You lost the roots of its character.


Rodeo star Ty Murray (Jewel's husband) and first-time Dancing pro Chelsie Hightower

Dance:  Fox Trot

Judges Scores: CAI  8    LG  8  BT 7

Total Score:  23

Comments: Wow, what a turn around! Either he let her go or she slipped, but they recovered. CAI You are most improved by miles. So smooth. The way you handled her slip, very smooth. LG It was stiff and lacked musicality. That was fantastic. You're a hero. Just top notch.  BT Chelsie you are carving a mini Fred Astaire. If you carry on like this, we'll see a great thing.



Here are the top three according to the judges' votes, a three-way tie for 27. But it could all change once America votes:


Gilles and Cheryl


Shawn and Mark


Melissa and Tony


How do you feel about those contestants with huge fan bases even if they perform worse than those who have smaller fan bases and who are more talented? Or vice a versa?

Do you have any favorites?  Who do you think will get voted off next and who do you think will make it to the end of season 8 of Dancing With The Stars?   DID YOU VOTE?

Dancing With The Stars season 8 every Monday at  8/7c on abc. Results shows on Tuesdays starting on March 17th. Mark your calendars. It's going to be a good season!
