We were seriously afraid that season nine of Dancing with the Stars would come and go without a perfect score.
The contestants have simply been that weak.
But Mya and Dmitry Chaplin brought their A-games last night, almost combining for 60 perfect points across two dances. Instead, they had to settle for 59, highlighted by a Samba that received rave reviews from all judges.
Len referred to the singer's hips as "hypnotic;" Bruno said it was a "mean, mean samba;" and Carrie Ann exclaimed: "Everything was perfect. It was beyond belief."
Can we please hand these two the trophy already?
Here's a look at last night's leaderboard, which featured a pair of routines for all five remaining quarterfinalists:
- Mya and Dmitry Chaplin: 59
- Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough: 52
- Kelly Osbourne and Louis van Amstel: 51
- Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff: 50
- Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson: 50
On tonight's elimination show, Michael Bublé and Susan Boyle will perform. Who do you think should go home?
