Ty staged a comeback with his charming waltz, but most of our readers don’t believe he can go all the way. We don't blame you. You can't claim the Mirroball trophy by only mastering the standard dances. Shake those hips, cowboy!

"I swear, [Ty] is the sweetest man ever created! He says some of the funniest, cute things and you can tell he doesn't do it on purpose. I really liked their dance." — Jerri36

Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough (tie)
Chuck was certain the rumba was going to be his breakthrough dance, but it turned out to be the samba that found him getting showered with praise and his first 9 (three of them, in fact). But while the potato-farm boy make inroads on the leader board, he's still failing to win our voters over, tying for last place.

"Chuck was amazing — finally the dance that we have all been waiting for and a game changer if you ask me." — filmkr27

Lil Kim and Derek Hough
When Kim toned down the hip-shaking, down went her scores (a little bit) and her power ranking, earning just 1 percent of the vote. Will a sexy paso doble reverse matters?

"I had to agree with [Carrie Ann]…[Lil Kim's] rumba was underwhelming." — zortil

Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke
Gilles slowed it down for a romantic Viennese waltz, but it wasn't good enough to reclaim the top spot on the leader board or on our rankings. Did our front-runner peak too early?

"Gilles is perfect. Oh, and he can dance, too. I got a bit miffed at how uneven (as ever) the judges are. They expect perfection from some of these celebs and excuse tons of [crap] from others." — tvfan1957

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani
Melissa and Tony became only the third couple to lead the scores when their man-eating Argentine tango earned a 29. Can she finally get a perfect 30 this week?

"Tony's choreography/routine, as I repeat myself, was really good (he's been able to do a lot with Melissa), but it was not carried off to perfection by Melissa. If it had been, wouldn't Len have awarded a 10 rather than a 9?" — 10000hrs

Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas
Shawn ran away with the votes again, this time siphoning 71 percent for her funky cha-cha, for which she earned her first 10 of the competition. What does she need to get that 30? Probably more hip-shaking. Maybe BFF Lil' Kim can help her out.

"Shawn and Mark were good, [but] they are always over-scored in my opinion. She is good at the slow dances and ones with a lot of gymnastics moves. She needed to move her hips more for the cha cha." — jdc4082
