Dancing with the Stars Recap: Perfect 10s A-Flyin'

by at .

The Dancing with the Stars judges doled out many a 10 Monday, as Nicole Scherzinger and Evan Lysacek each pulled in perfect scores and Erin Andrews close.

Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger earned a 30 on her Tango, and a 29 on her Cha Cha for a 59. Evan Foxtrotted (30) and Paso Dobled (29) his way to a 59 too.

Erin Andrews nearly achieved perfection with her own Paso (29), only to have Bruno call out her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy for a minor slip-up at the end.

"You were the one who [bleeped] up!" the judge explained.

On her previous dance, Bruno accidentally held up his 10 paddle for Erin, even though he entered and said nine. Maks dramatically fell to the floor laughing.

The judges sort of gave the shaft to Chad Ochocinco by disparaging a marvelous samba with an underwhelming 25. Are they trying to ensure he gets ousted?


Nicole Scherzinger and Evan Lysacek soared over the competition.

Ochocinco may not be on par with the remaining dancers, but he proved he belonged last night, and his scores seem unfairly skewed in comparison to the rest.

Barring a huge surprise, Chad will be leaving tonight. Should he? Do you think last night was scored fairly? Here's the full Dancing with the Stars scorecard:

  • Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya: Foxtrot: 29 (10-9-10). Paso Doble: 30 (10-10-10). Total: 59.
  • Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough: Tango: 30 (10-10-10). Cha Cha: 29 (10-9-10). Total: 59.
  • Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Waltz: 27 (9-9-9). Paso Doble: 29 (10-9-10). Total: 56.
  • Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke: Waltz: 27 (9-9-9). Samba: 25 (8-8-9). Total: 52.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
