Gladys earned her best score to date, a 24, but winds up tied at the bottom of our rankings. She can clearly handle the ballroom dances, as we've seen the past two weeks, but the routines have been on the duller side. Can she break out with her tango this week?
2 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
Sherri Shepherd and Val Chmerkovskiy (tie)
Like Gladys, Sherri also received her best score so far, a 24, but is tied for last here. We suspect this has more to do with her loud personality than it does with her dancing, which, while entertaining, needs a lot of work technique-wise.
3 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower (tie)
Roshon's Michael Jackson-inspired samba was a nifty throwback, but perhaps working with MJ's choreographer was a misstep, as there were more King of Pop moves than samba ones. Can he make a comeback with his Viennese waltz?
4 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (tie)
Despite nabbing her best score yet for her hair-tossing jive, Half Pint falls back a spot in our rankings. Melissa still hasn't cut loose like she should on the floor and with such a stacked cast this season, she better bring it sooner rather than later.
5 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
Jaleel White and Kym Johnson
Oh, how we've fallen. Jaleel topped our rankings two weeks ago, but has dropped back to sixth. Like Sherri, this is probably less about his performance and more about those reports that he lashed out at Kym in rehearsals — which he did not deny happened. And let's not get started on him crying over playing Stefan Urquelle.
6 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff
And the Most Improved Award goes to... Gavin DeGraw! The singer was the definition of awk-ward the first week, but he has slowly improved, giving us a sweet rumba with some decent hip action — not to mention a peek at what's under his many, many hats. Conclusion? Keep the hats on.
7 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd
Donald remains steady as ever in the middle of the pack on the leader board and in our rankings, though he does move up two spots. He is, in our eyes, the best male dancer of the group, but right now he can't compete with the looks of William Levy.
8 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
William Levy and Cheryl Burke
William earned a 10 for his sizzling salsa, which he admittedly knew how to do. Let's see how he handles something that's not right up his alley: the jive. And judges, the request remains: Stop objectifying the dude!
9 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
Maria Menounos and Derek Hough
Maria and Derek steamed up the hardwood (no pun intended) with some horizontal writhing and chin-kissing, grabbing a 27 — their highest score yet &mdaash; and 32 percent of the vote for second place in our rankings. It's still kind of early, but is Derek about to head to his fourth final in five seasons? (Remember: He sat out Season 12.)
10 of 10 Adam Taylor/Fox
Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas
Katherine bolts one spot to the top of our rankings with 35 percent of the vote for her moving waltz to her late father. She earned two 10s and is, on paper at least, the favorite right now. Can she keep it up?
