Despite achieving a personal best — a 29 — in his individual dance, A.C. found himself in the knockout dance. His Hail Mary jive proved to be brilliant enough for the judges to grant him another week. But with double-eliminations over, can he win over enough viewers' hearts to make it into the semifinals?

"OMG, Aaron was soooo good. I'll be danged if that kid isn't in it to win it! I was seriously impressed and think Carrie Ann should have given the 10. She didn't even know what the "thing" was in the middle so how does she know it was a mistake?" — Splotchie

Kelly Osbourne and Louis van Amstel
Kelly staged a comeback with an admirable sassy salsa to put her right back into the thick of things. But performing two individual dances this week will definitely test her mental mettle.

Mya and Dmitry Chaplin
Did Mya and Dmitry peak too soon? The pair seems to be falling out of favor with Len Goodman more than ever and now with fans, too, as they drop to third place in our rankings.

"Mya was ... technically almost perfect. Still there is zero chemistry with Dmitry and I wish they'd stop with the gimmicks; they should know by now that Len hates gimmicks!" — fldancingfan

Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough
The swimsuit model is definitely on the rise — on the show and in our rankings, as she breaks into the top 2 for the first time. She still hasn't claimed her first 10, but she'll have two chances to do so this week.

"If Joanna hadn't stumbled, she and Derek probably would have had a perfect score. They got three nines, but something tells me they would have been tens, but each judge probably took a point off for her stumble." — robinepowell

Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson
Donny makes it two weeks straight at the top of our rankings. Although he battled the flu last week, the lifelong entertainer still managed to wow the crowd with a high-spirited, if technically imperfect, quickstep. One thing that's not as impressive? Donny's costume-designing skills. Oy vey.

"Donny continues to wow, I knew he would and Kim is designing the dances fun and to Donny's personality." — commentsonly
