At this point, each team will be doing two separate dances on their own. In addition, each celebrity will have to do a 15-second solo sometime in their second dance during the Latin Round.
Before I begin, though, I was just informed by my brother Andrew that Kym Johnson suffered a shoulder injury and just had surgery on it. Despite that, she will be dancing with Warren Sapp tonight.
The first team in line are Cody Linley and Edyta Sliwinska, and they're first doing the Fox Trot. They pick up three 8's.
Team #2 are Brooke Burke and Derek Hough, and their opening assignment is the Tango.
CARRIE ANN: 10!
Third in line are Maurice Greene & Cheryl Burke, first with the Quick Step. Three 8's for them.
Next are Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer with the Fox Trot.

Since Kym's injured, it's only logical that she and Warren are last in tonight's lineup. For their first performance, they're doing the Tango.

Now, for the Latin Round. Cody & Edyta now dance the Mambo. Cody's solo is at the end. They again get three 8's.
Brooke & Derek's second dance also is the Mambo. Brooke does her solo right off the bat. This time, they get three 9's, for a final judges' score tonight of 55!
Maurice & Cheryl next dance the Paso Doble. Maurice does his solo in the middle of the performance. Like Cody & Edyta, they again get three 8's.
Lance & Lacey now dance the Samba. Lance does his solo early in the performance.
CARRIE ANN: 8
That gives them a final total of 50 from the judges.
Warren & Kym wrap up the night with the Jive. Warren's solo comes early on.
CARRIE ANN: 9
That gives them a final score of 54, one point off the lead!
I hope Maurice & Cheryl get eliminated tomorrow night, because I don't want Cody to get eliminated in part because of having a substitute partner for two weeks.
