Recap

Rocco DiSpirito left no doubt about who was getting eliminated this week. Here's a full rundown of the performances...

Maurice Greene & Cheryl Burke (Samba) Len said they had the fun element of the dance, but he has to work on refining everything. Bruno called them Mr. & Mrs. Jackie Brown. He said their samba wasn't so fabulous. At this point in the competition they want to see the precision. Carrie Ann thought that Maurice fell back a little. He's not progressing the way they would like him to. Score: 20 (6,7,7) 

Cody Linley & Julianne Hough (Tango) Bruno said Cody is starting to find his mojo, and that he looked confident and masculine. He liked that this was a proper tango. Carrie Ann agreed, but called him out for tripping on Julianne's dress. Len called Cody the boy wonder, saying the dance was sharp, and that it was Cody's best dance so far. Score: 23 (7,8,8) 

Toni Braxton & Alec Mazo (Samba)
Carrie Ann said there is no denying the sensuality that the pair ooze on the dance floor, but what Toni needs to work on is her shoulders. Len said it's hard to balance the performance and the choreography, but he thought Toni got that just about right. He added that it did all go a little funny for a while. Bruno said Toni is like a tasty morsel and he can't wait to have more. He liked the samba rolls and the spins, but also acknowledged the mistake. Score: 22 (7,7,8) 

Cloris Leachman & Corky Ballas (Tango)
Len said if he hadn't seen it, he wouldn't have believed it. It had musicality, and it was absolutely fabulous. Bruno called Cloris the grand duchess in lust... He compared the performance to a silent movie. Carrie Ann said she owed Cloris an apology. She tried to explain that she had underestimated Cloris, and that she really liked the performance, but every time Carrie Ann tried to compliment her, Cloris interrupted, confounding Carrie Ann. Score: 22 (8,7,7) 

Rocco Dispirito & Karina Smirnoff (Samba)
Bruno said he likes Rocco very much, but his ruffles can't disguise the fact that he doesn't have a musical bone in his body. Carrie Ann agreed, saying that the dancing was lacking. Len said Rocco was very good, because he came out and had fun. It all felt very odd coming right after the ridiculous Cloris judging. Score: 18 (6,6,6) 

Susan Lucci & Tony Dovolani (Tango)
Carrie Ann said it was the performance she has been waiting for from Susan, going so far as to call it moving art. Len thought that there was nothing timid about that performance. It was Susan's best so far. Bruno said he always knew there was a tough broad under that polished appearance, and she showed it tonight. Score: 24 (8,8,8) 

Brooke Burke & Derek Hough (Samba) Len told Brooke that she has set such a high standard, that his expectations are very high, but this was too erotic. He also didn't like the nonsense with the props. Bruno said a sex bomb has hit the building. The sexiest samba he's ever seen. He needed a cigarette. Carrie Ann praised the blend of athleticism and grace, and told Brooke it could take her to the finals. Score: 26 (9,8,9) 

Lance Bass & Lacey Schwimmer (Tango) Bruno said it was quirky with a Gothic twist, yet always a tango. Lance should always be this assured because he has what it takes. Carrie Ann struggled to say that Lance hasn't really shined in the competition to this point, but that all changed tonight. She called the performance amazing. Len paused for dramatic effect and then dropped his big line, calling Lance Sir Dancelot. In the middle of all that, Carrie Ann was offended that Bruno referred to her as Paula, and then tried to backtrack when she realized what she had said. Score: 26 (9,8,9) 

Warren Sapp & Kym Johnson (Samba)
Carrie Ann said Warren cracks her up, but this week she thought it was lacking content. Len told Warren that he is a joy to watch, but there was too much of him gyrating while Kym danced about. Bruno called Warren out for taking it too easy, adding that he has all the ability necessary to blow them away, but he didn't do it. Score: 22 (8,7,7)
