Couples chose to dance the Rumba or the Jive tonight. Here's a rundown of their performances...

Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower, Jive: Bruno liked the line dancing, but thought the dance was wild. The kicks were wrong, and the timing was bad. Carrie Ann said the jive was exciting, but she shows that Ty's specialty is in dances with form (Foxtrot) or athleticism (Lindy Hop). This dance fell somewhere in the middle. Score: 18 (6, 6, 6)

Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas
, Rumba: Bruno said it was angelic and loved the sweet romance. Carrie Ann appreciates innocence, and she saw some of the fear in her eyes. She overcame it in the second half. Len thought that the rumba was just right. Score: 26 (8, 9, 9)

Lawrence Taylor and Edtya Sliwinska
, Jive: Carrie Ann loved that LT got his groove back, but thought the lift was unnecessary. Len liked the basic movements and the lighter personality. He hopes that the feet will be lighter next week. Score: 22 (7, 7, 8)

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, Rumba: Len believed it was clean, precise, and well-choreographed. Bruno calls her exotic and appreciates the flexiblity. Bruno wants to see the devil in her. Carrie Ann was impressed by the emotional quality. Her problem is that her Cuban movement lacks. Score: 27 (9, 9, 9)

Lil Kim and Derek Hough, Jive: Bruno wants to be arrested and frisked. Ummm, ok. He thought she rocked. Carrie Ann gets up and yells, while her bangle flies off. She loved the choreography and pizzazz. Len loved the fun and energy, but it lacked jive elements. It was too theatrical to be a jive. Score: 28 (10, 8, 10)

Steve-O and Lacey Schwimmer, Rumba: Carrie Ann appreciates the commitment and vulnerability. He still lacks grace, but he's improved from last week. Len saw no hip action or foot work. Bruno liked "Racy Lacey." Bruno thought Steve-O was like an awkward puppy. Score: 16 (7, 4, 5)

Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke, Jive: Bruno thought it was too fast and he looked like a mad squirrel. Carrie Ann liked the showiness, but his arms seemed squirrelly. Score: 26 (9, 8, 9)

Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough, Rumba:  Bruno loves the raunchy factor. It technically wasn't perfect, but he's progressing. Carrie Ann loved the passion, but the technique needs help. Len thought it was a little too raunchy. Score: 23 (8, 7, 8)
