Niecy Nash and Louis van Amstel (tie)

Niecy's scores took a tumble when she delivered a rather ordinary rumba. Lucky for her, she has the high-energy jive next, which is more befitting of her personality. Can she make a comeback?

Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower (tie)

Jake escaped the bottom two last week, but his clumsy tango left much to be desired. The judges have raved about his potential, so let's see if he can finally tap into it in the cha-cha.

Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani

A more relaxed Kate had, as Bruno described, a "mini-breakthrough" with her tango. Her fan base will be enough to help her slide by the next few weeks, but she will need to have a major breakthrough if she wants to hang with the big boys at the end.

Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood (tie)

The Baywatch babe oozed sex in her seductive rumba that was so bedroom-ready it had ol' stodgy Len telling her she was overdressed in her, um, white sheet. Is Pam going to be the dark horse of the season?
5 of 8 Adam Larkey/ABC

Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (tie)

Erin put on an uneven tango, but our voters believe she still has what it takes to bounce back and challenge for the Mirrorball, especially with the lively jive as her next dance. Another good thing about the jive? No holds, so we won't hear Carrie Ann harp on her death grip.

Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya

Evan topped the leader board for the second week in a row, but the figure skater falls back a spot on our rankings. Is his spot on the show not as safe as it seems?
7 of 8 Adam Larkey/ABC

Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough

Nicole slides back to second place after performing a nerve-racked rumba that left her in tears — despite a score of 50 out of 60. We're sure this seasoned performer — excuse us, artist — will regroup.

Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke

Touchdown! Chad tops our rankings for the first time with 41 percent of the vote following his stellar rumba that featured more hip action than a Shakira video of a certain name. There are still weeks to go, but can the football star win Cheryl her third Mirrorball?
