DAG connected to "the essence" of the Lindy Hop, but he didn't connect with our readers. Despite a so-so score of 22, he's still bringing up the rear on the rankings. What does he have to do to win viewers over?

Lawrence Taylor & Edyta Sliwinska (tie)
Did LT's sour face embitter our readers too? Sure, a score higher than a 19 would be nice, but when you're the second one declared safe, it's time to let go of the past, dude. Looking at his cheerless mug, you'd think he was in danger of leaving last week. And clearly the voters in our poll think he should be leaving soon.

Steve-O & Lacey Schwimmer
Poor Steve-O just can't catch a break. After sitting out Week 2 and blanking out during Week 3, the Jackass star failed to stage a comeback again, spazzing out in the Lindy Hop. Still, our readers seem to have a tad bit more faith in him, giving him 1 percent of the vote. Better than nothing.

Chuck Wicks & Julianne Hough
Looks like our readers want their pizza to be crispier too. Chuck threw down another middle-of-the-road performance yet again to (Lindy) hop his way into Week 5. But with the field narrowing, he's going to need a breakthrough dance ASAP if he's going to get voters on his side.

Lil Kim & Derek Hough
Pint-sized Kim showed off her gorgeous leg extensions in a sultry Argentine tango and climbed her way into the Top 3 for the first time with the judges. But to our readers, she's still just Top 5 material.

Ty Murray & Chelsie Hightower
Ty is breathing down the Top 3's neck more than ever with his best dance and score to date. Now we just have to see his new and hopefully improved Latin dances before calling him a favorite.

Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani
Ask and you shall receive! Melissa stepped up her game — as requested by the judges — to earn two 10s, but she placed third in our poll again. Maybe a perfect 30 next week will help.

Shawn Johnson & Mark Ballas
Though still precise and athletic as ever, Shawn fell out of favor with the judges this week for incorporating too many tricks in her Lindy Hop. She's also fallen out of the top spot in our rankings as well. Can she bounce back this week?

Gilles Marini & Cheryl Burke
No surprise here. The "Latin lover" sizzled with his Argentine tango to snag the first 30 of the season and nearly half of our readers' votes. But what goes up must come down, right?
