"Dancing with the Stars" 5/4

This week, each couple did two individual routines. During each couple's second one (the Latin Round dance), each star had to do a 15-second solo.

But let's start with the Ballroom Round. First in the lineup was Shawn Johnson & Mark Ballas with the Quick Step with their background song being "Friend Like Me" from the movie "Aladdin"...and started off nicely with three 9's.

Second, Ty Murray & Chelsie Hightower did the Argentine Tango.

CARRIE ANN: 8

TOTAL: 25

Third were Lil' Kim & Derek Hough, dancing the regular Waltz. Their dance song was "When I Need You" by Leo Sayer.

Last in that night's lineup were Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, performing a Viennese Waltz to Sarah McLachlan's "Angel"...and got three 9's for their troubles!

Lil' Kim & Derek then danced some Salsa...and picked up three 9's, making their final score this evening 52.

Gilles & Cheryl then had the next-to-last performance, dancing the night's second Rumba, with this one being done to "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye...they also got three 9's, making their final judges' total 56, tying them for the lead!

Melissa & Tony then wrapped things up for the night with a Samba to one of Ricky Martin's songs, "Jaleo".
