Maks Chmerkovskiy, Len Goodman
"Maksgate." That's what ousted celebrity dancer Carson Kressley is calling the dust-up Monday night between pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy and two of the three Dancing With the Stars judges...
Danciing With The Stars, Mark Ballas, Chelsea Kane
Chelsea Kane is just three dances (and a couple million votes) away from a spot in Dancing with the Stars' final three, and she can't believe it herself. "I knew when I went on [the show] that a lot of the viewing audience had absolutely no clue who I was, so I was really afraid that I would be going home [early]," she tells TVGuide.com. "The fact the fact that people who haven't seen me before have invited me into their home and have voted for Mark [Ballas] and me into the semifinals is just amazing. I'm so flattered and I'm really having the time of my life." The Disney star has her work cut out for her this week: Besides two individual routines, she will face off with the other three couples in a winner-takes-all cha-cha with 15 points on the line. But after her and Ballas' heart-to-heart about his 'tude towards Len Goodman, Kane says the duo is "clicking better ever."
Chelsea Hightower, Romeo
He may have been the most surprising contestant in Dancing With The Stars history. No one, least of all the judges, thought when the season started that they'd be falling in love with the son of Master P, and so disappointed to see him go.
So, the question some of us were asking Tuesday night was: Where are we? Dancing With The Stars? Or American Idol? There were so many crossovers between the two shows Tuesday night that it seemed the two television titans had morphed into one super show: Dancing With The Idols...
Mark Ballas and Chelsea Kane
It's YouTubing with the Stars!
The love of "Friday" continues, this time behind the scenes on Dancing With the Stars, courtesy of Chelsea Kane's YouTube channel. Kane herself does a pretty good Rebecca Black, while Mark Ballas and Lil' Romeo lay down some beats. Where's songbird Pia Toscano in all this? Partying, partying (yeah) offscreen for most of the video, but you can catch her at the end.

Dancing With The Stars, Chelsea Kane
Are Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas dancing rebels without a cause? The two have incurred the wrath of Len Goodman for going against the grain with their Dancing with the Stars routines, but the Disney star says it's all for the people. "I think there's a time and a place for breaking the rules," Kane tells TVGuide.com. "I think we enjoy it because we are one of the youngest couples on the show and we want to entertain." This week, however, look for them to be on their best behavior during their quickstep.
Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya
After being told by Len Goodman that their jive may put them in jeopardy for elimination last week on Dancing with the Stars, Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya sweated it out under the Red Light of Doom before being the last couple called safe. "Ray was nervous, but he was containing it," Trebunskaya tells TVGuide.com. "He's a world class athlete, so he knows how to handle the pressure, but I know he was nervous. We tried to...

When Audrina Patridge was booted from ABC's Dancing With the Stars on October 26, head judge Len Goodman called it "ludicrous." One week later, former L.A. Laker Rick Fox shared her fate, while the judges looked on in disbelief. "Shocking elimination tonight," Tweeted judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
Dancing With The Stars
In case you're wondering, Kurt Warner still doesn't know the difference between flexed knees and bent knees. "I have no idea. I don't even know which one I'm supposed to have!" the Dancing with the Stars contestant tells TVGuide.com nearly a week after judge Len Goodman criticized his knee technique. "Because I'm so tall, Anna [Trebunskaya] always tells me to bend my knees. ... I just listen to her. She tries to focus on the things that are most important." This week, the former Arizona Cardinals quarterback has yet another thing to worry about —the Instant Dance.
