Team Tango Takes Diminished Dancing With the Stars

at . Comments

Despite a pair of entertaining group dance numbers, this week's performance show was waterered down a bit.

The reason? A severe lack of Melissa Rycroft, who was forced to sit out Dancing With the Stars with a rib injury. Reportedly, the former Bachelor contestant - and our enthusiasm - will return next week.

Gilles and Cheryl

Read a complete recap of how the show went on without her, while taking a look at the combined scores from last night (individual plus group) below:

  • Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke: 27 out of 30 for the Lindy Hop. 55 out of 60 total.
  • Lil’ Kim and Derek Hough: 28 out of 30 for the Paso Doble. 56 out of 60 total.
  • Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough 26 out of 30 for the Cha-Cha. 51 out of 60 total.
  • Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas: 27 out of 30 for the Samba. 52 out of 60 total.
