We’re down to the final four and after tonight’s performances, Rob Kardashian proved he could very well take home the top prize!

Kim Kardashhian wasn’t kidding when she tweeted that her brother’s first dance of the night was his best. Rob Kardashian‘s Samba performance with Cheryl Burke even made his mother Kris Jenner tear up!

Rob Kardashian: Rob’s butt action during the Samba earned him some major points. “Bootylicious,” Carrie Ann Inaba said. 10,9,9=28/30. Rob wowed the crowd and the judges with his Argentine Tango, his second dance of the evening, with Len saying, ” You started as a goofy outsider, now your’e looking like a leading man!” 9,9,9=27/30. Rob and Cheryl won the third and final dance, the Cha Cha Relay, giving them an extra 10 points. Their total score: 67

Ricki Lake: Ricki’s Samba performance with Derek Hough earned the duo a perfect score (10,10,10) with Len saying, “You have just taken a step into the finals!” Ricki’s Argentine Tango earned her another top score (10,10,9). “Ricki, I don’t think you know how good you are,” said Len. Ricki and Derek came in second with their Cha Cha relay performance, giving them an extra 8 points. Total score: 67

J.R. Martinez: He may be the best dancer in the competition, but poor J. R. suffered a major setback when he twisted his ankle during rehearsals. His first performance of the Paseo Doble with Karina Smirnoff earned him his lowest score to date: 23 points, 8,7,8. “I know you suffered an injury, but we can only call it as we see it,” Len said. Carrie Ann said that J.R.’s posture was compromised by his twisted ankle. But we think he earned a perfect score with his optimistic attitude! J.R. made a comeback with his second performance The Argentine Tango scoring 9-9-9. You could tell by the look on J.R.’s face that he was in a lot of pain, but he still managed to capture the third spot in the Cha Cha Relay which gave him an extra 6 points. Total score: 56

Hope Solo: Hope was in so much pain during rehearsals, she decided to get shots that she had been saving for the Olympics.
The judges thought Hope was too aggressive during her first performance of the Paso Doble with Max. 7, 7, 7. Hope did a little better with her second performance earning 8,8,8 and came in last with her Cha Cha Relay performance. Total score: 49
