The all-stars picked dances for each other in the Oct. 15 competition but sabotaging strategies barely played a factor with two couples getting three 10’s each! Keep reading to see who came out on top!
This week, the all-star celebs were forced to dance the pick of their competitors — and some couples had to do dances that have never been done before! Superstar judge and dance professional Paula Abdul was a guest judge!
Since this week was uncharted territory, the couples were able to bring in professionals and also do lifts, which are normally not allowed.

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas got past their huge fight last week and have moved on, Mark told the cameras. The two danced rock and roll for a score of 32/40. Paula said “she was starting to have some fun, which is very important.” Bruno said, “You were hitting the steps — well done.” Len said it was their best dance so far!
Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel danced the disco for a score of 35.5/40. Bruno said “Sabrina, you disco diva! As performances go, it was probably your most vibrant and alive!”
A Sexy Side Of Dancing
Emmitt Smith and partner Cheryl Burke danced a sensual bolero for a total score of 36/40. Carrie Ann was brought to tears! Bruno said, “The mood was steamier than August in Louisiana!”
Gilles Marini and Peta danced bollywood for a score of 39.5 — three 10’s — the highest score of the season! Bruno said, “A bollywood superstar is born!” They got a standing ovation from the audience! “I had the best time in the world, I love you,” Gilles said after he got the scores!
Melissa Rycroft and partner Tony Dovolani danced the jitterbug for a score of 37/40. Bruno said, “Melissa what a swinger — fearless and fierce! Near perfection!”
The Olympians And An Actress
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough danced the mambo for a score of 39.5/40 — three 10’s! “Mesmerizing, sexy, out of this world! This show, you think you’ve seen it all and it keeps getting better!” Bruno raved! Carrie Ann said she felt the other contestants should really be scared of them! Paula said she was “down and dirty with the hips,” but also “elegant.”
Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff danced hip hop to for a total score of 34.5/40. Karina was brought to tears after the dance because she thought she severely messed up. Even so, Carrie Ann said, “every dancer is outside their comfort zone.” Len said Apolo was “fantastic!” Bruno said “he even made the running man look good and usually it’s rubbish!”
Kelly Monaco and partner Val Chmerkovskiy looked extremely close and did a contemporary dance for a score of 37.5/40! Bruno said, “Of all the tasks assigned tonight, yours was one of the hardest. To nail this routine takes years of training…you did it beautifully…you should be proud, my darling. Great achievement.”
