Farewell, Jeffrey Ross! We hope you recover someday for earning a total of 12 points on your sole Dancing with the Stars performance.

On to the couples remaining...

Lance Bass & Lacey Schwimmer (Quickstep) Len thought they moved well around the floor, but he didn't like the posture or the hold. Bruno said the two of them bring a fresh take to the dances and their timing is very good. Carrie Ann was very entertained, but not impressed. They didn't give her the elegance they want to see. Score: 21 (7,6,8)

Misty May-Treanor & Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Mambo) Carrie Ann was excited and called Misty strong and sharp. Len said he was surprised that a person from the world of sport can come out and perform like that. He added she needs to work on her arms. Bruno said Misty has the power and attack of a task force. Score: 21 (7,7,7)

Maurice Greene & Cheryl Burke (Mambo) Bruno called it dynamic and exuberant. He liked it. Carrie Ann enjoyed the transitions in and out of holds, adding that the performance was well done. Len pointed out that learning two dances is very hard and predicted that there is a lot more to come from Greene in the Latin dances. Score: 21 (7,7,7)

Brooke Burke & Derek Hough (Quickstep) Len, repeating his critique from the previous night, again said it was the best dance so far. Bruno called their performance sensational. He added that he can't believe he's seeing this in week one. Carrie Ann called Brooke grace, beauty, strength, and class. It was fantastic. Score: 26 (9,8,9)

Cloris Leachman & Corky Ballas (Mambo) Carrie Ann said golden girl can shimmy and grab crotchy, she thinks. She gave Cloris points for entertainment. Len praised Corky for his choreography. Bruno started to talk, and Cloris interrupted him telling him to speak English. Weird exchange. Score: 16 (6,5,5)

Toni Braxton & Alec Mazo (Quickstep) Bruno said Toni is light, sparkling, and eloquent, like a fine champagne. Carrie Ann thought Toni did really well and that she has good chemistry with Alec. Len liked the lightness of foot and beautiful movement across the floor. Score: 23 (8,7,8)

Warren Sapp & Kym Johnson (Quickstep) Len called it fantastic entertainment, but didn't like the technique. Bruno said Warren is a ton of fun. He compared Warren's feet to the Roadrunner, they were moving so fast. Carrie Ann was amazed that he didn't miss a step. She added that his footwork was not quite as sharp as in the previous number. Score: 22 (7,7,8)

Ted McGinley & Inna Brayer (Mambo) Carrie Ann told Ted that while he did a lot of moves in that dance, there is an awkwardness to the way he moves. He must find a way to ease up. Len said Ted shows that with hard work anything is possible. Bruno thought Ted grabbed the mambo with both hands and squeezed every ounce of fun out of it. Score: 19 (6,6,7)

Cody Linley & Julianne Hough (Quickstep) Bruno called Cody and Julianne the king and queen of the prom. What charm, what energy. He said Cody tends to get a little over excited in the quick footwork. Carrie Ann noted that the quickstep is very difficult, but she thought that Cody pulled it off. Len said Cody danced with great maturity. Score: 23 (8,7,8)

Rocco Dispirito & Karina Smirnoff (Mambo) Bruno called him the Italian Stallion and said he'd never seen such a change between performances. Carrie Ann thought the performance was super sexy and praised Rocco for matching Karina's level. Len said it was an improvement. Score: 21 (7,7,7)

Susan Lucci & Tony Dovolani (Quickstep) Carrie Ann said this performance was so much better. There was a little stumble at the end, but Susan did a great job. The stumble comment almost sparked a little battle between Carrie Ann and Tony. Len agreed that it was much better. Bruno said Susan is class, elegance, and glamor. He said ballroom is her element. Score: 22 (7,7,8)

Kim Kardashian & Mark Ballas (Mambo) Bruno said Kim is gorgeous but she drives him crazy; she doesn't use what she has. Len thinks it's all in her head, and he thought they lacked balance. Carrie Ann gave her a break for having to stand there all night waiting and added that she is improving. Score: 18 (6,6,6)
