Dancing With the Stars Recap: Kellie Pickler Owns Prom Night!

by at . Comments

Country singer and American Idol alum Kellie Pickler remains atop the Dancing with the Stars world after a strong "prom night" performance Monday.

She even earned a 9 for her "brisk, tight and precise" jive ...

The competition has tightened, though, in the third week.

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, boxer Victor Ortiz, NFL star Jacoby Jones and Disney actress Zendaya Coleman are all within a few points of Pickler:

Ortiz’s ascent up the scoreboard is most unexpected, since last week he was in danger of being sent home alongside Real Housewife Lisa Vanderpump.

Lisa turned in a respectable effort last night as well, tying with The Bachelor Sean Lowe and soap opera actor Ingo Rademacher in the middle of the field:

Comedians Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley, along with singer Wynonna Judd earned the lowest combined judges’ scores last night and may be in jeopardy.

The Dancing With the Stars scoreboard for Week 3 …

  • Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough: 8, 9, 8 (25)
  • Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy: 8, 8, 8 (24)
  • Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff: 8, 8, 8 (24)
  • Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas: 7, 8, 8 (23)
  • Victor Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold: 8, 7, 8 (23)
  • Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb Savchenko: 7, 7, 7 (21)
  • Ingo Rademacher and Kim Johnson: 7, 7, 7 (21)
  • Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd: 7, 7, 7 (21)
  • Andy Dick and Sharna Brugess: 6, 6, 6 (18)
  • D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke: 6, 5, 5 (16)
  • Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani: 5, 5, 5 (15)

Looks like Wynonna and D.L. in the bottom two tonight ... or does it? What do you think, THGers? Who will be sent home on Tuesday's results show?


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.
