"Dancing with the Stars" 4/27

I apologize for being late with this; I was busy finishing up a five-page essay for a History class in college.

To begin, Melissa Rycroft's team was unable to perform on stage this evening because Rycroft suffered an injury to her ribs while practicing last week; I'll explain what that meant a little later.

After each team did an individual routine, some teams would be chosen to perform a Mambo group routine while the others participated in a Tango group routine. Both group routines were scored.

First in this night's lineup were Gilles Marini & Cheryl Burke; they did the Lindy Hop. They got three 9's for it!

Team #2 consisted of Lil Kim and Derek Hough; their dance was the Paso Doble.

CARRIE ANN: 9
LEN: 9
BRUNO: 10!
TOTAL: 28

Third, Chuck Wicks & Julianne Hough performed the Cha-Cha-Cha.

CARRIE ANN: 9
LEN: 9
BRUNO: 8
TOTAL: 26

Shawn Johnson & Mark Ballas were next with the Samba; their background song was "Get Down On It" by Kool & the Gang.

CARRIE ANN: 10!
LEN: 8
BRUNO: 9
TOTAL: 27

Now, because of Rycroft's injury, this was the second time this season this happened- a dance was scored based on the last routine that was taped. In this case, Melissa & Tony did the Jive to "We Got the Beat" by The Go-Gos. They got three 7's for it.

Finally, Ty Murray & Chelsie Hightower danced some Salsa.

CARRIE ANN: 9
LEN: 7
BRUNO: 8
TOTAL: 24

GROUP DANCING: Because of Rycroft's injury, Lacey Schwimmer took her place for this routine. Here were the assignments:

Team Mambo: Lacey & Tony, Shawn & Mark and Chuck & Julianne
Team Tango: Gilles & Cheryl, Lil' Kim & Derek and Ty & Chelsie

Team Mambo's dance song was "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It" by Beyonce.

TEAM MAMBO:
CARRIE ANN: 8
LEN: 8
BRUNO: 9
TOTAL: 25

That meant the final score for Melissa & Tony this week was 46, Shawn & Mark's was 52 and Chuck & Julianne's was 51.

Team Tango danced to "Womanizer" by Britney Spears.

TEAM TANGO:
CARRIE ANN: 9
LEN: 9
BRUNO: 10!
TOTAL: 28

The final scores were 56 for Lil' Kim & Derek, 52 for Ty & Chelsie and 55 for Gilles & Cheryl.
