Vroom! - February 9

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! It's time for "Dancing With The Stars" to hit the track. Our couples will learn 2 new routines including the Viennese waltz group dance, and our judges will rate the performers from 1-10. The lowest scoring couple goes back to the garage. Last week, Tia Carerre's "relic hunt" for a title came crashing down thanks to George & Edyta. Who else will be hunted this week? On your mark, get set, DANCE!

First off, we get a preview of the dancers in their off-practice scenes. With the group dance right around the corner, the dance pros will unleash their moves that they'll master with the stars right on this very stage, starting with Louis & Ashly doing a jive to George Michael's "Faith." And with that, it was fast like lightning. Next up, Jonathan & Anna doing a Tango to "Hernando's Hideaway." This routine so far in the season was most memorable thanks to Tia & Max. But with a new week ahead, somebody must take a tango for 2 in their footsteps. Next up, the rhumba provided by Max & Edyta accompanying to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." Which couple can make some sexy moves tonight? The Paso Doble is next on the checklist, and Cheryl & Tony will take the floor to "Espana Cani." For most of us, it's the dance of a bullfighter, and as we've seen so far this season, Drew & Cheryl's routine proved that it can take the bull by the horns. Finally, the quickstep done by Andrea & Nick to "Sing, Sing, Sing" by Benny Goodman. It somehow may be the NASCAR of this routine, but someone can take the fast lane or one misstep will come to a screeching halt. All of the pros ended up in a circle, but these dancers have been toying around in practice all week long, so put up that Sit-N-Spin and let's party!

Way up first, Jerry & Anna. Last week, he left the judges in doom. Will he bring it to gloom? In Practice, they went to Super Bowl 40 or XL (for you clothing people) and Jerry was one of the 39 MVPs in a special ceremony with Hines Ward adding 1 more to the list. Now we head back to L.A. and they'll Paso Doble to "Espana Cani." Jerry rose up at the start and Anna did some cape moves just like Drew did during the Paso doble/Fox Trot episode. Jerry did a hook & carry move, and both did some footwork to kneel down. Anna did a kick, and ended the song with a dip & slide. Now we get a first glance at our judges: Carrie Ann said it was fantastic, Len said it got it right as a character, and Bruno said it was like Moses parting the Red Sea. Will they get drowned? Let's swim on over to the scores:

CARRIE ANN: 8
LEN: 7
BRUNO: 8
Total: 23
And it's the same thing like last week.

2nd, Drew & Cheryl. Last week, they couldn't catch up to tie Stacy & Tony. Will a perfect score happen? In practice, it was an appearance by "newly single" Nick Lachey. Now let's see what his brother can do as they tango to "Shut Up" by the Black Eyed Peas. By the start, they spun around at the band area, and when they went to the floor, Cheryl did some head moves, and a few twirls. She also did a kick & a leg claw move, and a spin & dip move to end the song. Will a bad score silence them? Carrie Ann said it was great, Len said it commanded the dance and Bruno said it did everything. Score Time!

CARRIE ANN: 10
LEN: 10
BRUNO: 10
Total: 30
Perfecto!

Going 3rd, George & Edyta. Last week, George knocked out the props and pumped up the box. Will the volume be turned up? At practice, look who just came. It was Alec Mazo, the dancer who partnered with Kelly Monaco last season to take home the title. Now let's see if they'll tackle to "Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps" by Doris Day as they take on the rhumba. George took a portion of Edyta's clothing and threw it away, and both did the routine like the routine could. Edyta did a spitting fountain pose, and did a shake up and by the end, Edyta sat down and gave a $100 bill to George. Was that worth a money shot? Carrie Ann said George is such a fantastic entertainer, Len said it was a little bit of disappointed, Bruno said it was like the first encounter. Will last place give them death like "Final Destination?" Only the scores will know:

CARRIE ANN: 8
LEN: 7
BRUNO: 8
Total: 23
And they tie for 2nd place.

Lisa & Louis are up next. Their samba didn't get their freak on. Will her freak show come to a close? In practice, Lisa took some etiquette lessons, but will she mind her manners? Let's see how they quickstep to Dolly Parton's "9 to 5." By the start, Lisa walked around Louis. Lisa also threw a clothing portion away, and then both did some toe hops. By the end, both raced up to the entrance area. Tom mentioned that Lisa is nominated for a Daytime Emmy award, but let's get to the judges for critique: Carrie Ann said it took ballroom out the window, Len said it wanted to see speed, and did it exactly and Bruno said the emancipation is now complete. How did the numbers do?

CARRIE ANN: 9
LEN: 9
BRUNO: 9
Total: 27
and they take over 2nd place.

Rounding it out are Stacy & Tony. Last week, they started out of the gate in a hurry. In practice, they met the marines and tested the moves in front of them. Now let's see if the viewers test them as they Jive to "Wake me up before you go-go" by Wham! Both went from the band area to the floor in the opening seconds, but Stacy took her jacket off, and both tossed their hats away. Stacy did a split through, and sat over at the socring table to end the song. Now we head on over to the judges: Carrie Ann said it was perfect, Len said it was absolutely spot-on and Bruno said it was done all like a ballroom. Now the scores one last time:

CARRIE ANN: 10
LEN: 10
BRUNO: 10
Total: 30
It's a tie for 1st place.

Before we head to the group dance, let's run down the scoreboard: Stacy & Tony and Drew & Cheryl have 1st with 30, Lisa & Louis have 2nd with 27 and 3rd belongs to George & Edyta and Jerry & Anna with 23.

Before we start, it started at 10 a.m. with no Jerry in sight after a Super Bowl day. by 10:45-11:00, it was on. Tony said it's the most classical in the ballroom area, but Drew said it's a challenge and it's not easy, than came a icebreaker...George's pants fell down and everyone laughed. Meanwhile, Drew did a handstand for his solo, and George did the funky chicken. Tom said there were some rush hour collisions during practice, but the green light is up and we are ready to roll with the Viennese waltz group dance.

They all dance to Alicia Key's "Fallin." Everyone starts out in unison, and we start out with Drew & Cheryl. Cheryl did a flip and a copter spin move. Next up came Stacy & Tony, and the same copter spin result went a lot faster. George & Edyta are up and they broke out their solo moves, Lisa & Louis are up and Lisa did a leg spin and a floor spin. Finally, Jerry & Anna. Anna did a whirlybird spin to a kneel. All of the women dipped to end the song, but who took top honors by the judges? Carrie Ann said they loved Lisa & Louis, Len said Drew & Cheryl were spot-on and Bruno said the force was with Stacy & Tony. But whose world came to a slowdown? Find out tomorrow as we see who's gone. We're on a 23-hour break. See you tomorrow when we dance with the stars.
