After tallying the judges’ and viewers’ votes, the fifth couple to be eliminated from the competition was revealed tonight, on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show.” Tonight Lance and Lacey were chosen for best dance. They returned to the dance floor with their Tango to, “Disturbia.”
In between host commentaries this evening, Dancing With The Stars played funny commercial endorsements for each of the contestants to try and get voters NOT to vote for them! The funniest was the one for Cloris Leachman which was paid for by the accounting department of ABC since she keeps prolonging their air time with her antics!
Host Tom Bergeron introduced the first guest stars of the evening. Performing together since childhood, the world famous Spanish flamenco dancers and brothers Los Vivancos heated up the “Dancing with the Stars” stage in a sizzling and show stopping performance.
Next the rankings were announced. Theyare: Cloris and Corky and Rocco and Karina at the bottom of the leader board

They also disclosed that the first couple in the bottom twowere; Rocco and Karina.
Returning to the “Dancing with the Stars” stage this season are talented ballroom dancing kids who will shake and shimmy their way into America’s hearts in a live ballroom dancing competition. This season, six ballroom couples, all 13 and under, will compete. Judges Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba select their favorite team of the night and that team will return later in the season for another performance.
This weeks first team was; Mitchell and Jessica who danced an adorable Cha Cha Cha. Len said that they came out and it was crisp and precise and was well done! Bruno said that they brought a smile to his face. Carrie Ann said that they were on fire.
Kirell and Hannah were the second competitors and they danced a spicySamba. Carrie Ann said that they showed an incredible amount of sophistication in their routine. Len said that they captured the flavor of the Samba. Bruno said that they really performed and engaged the audience.
The judges chose Kirell and Hannah to go on to compete in the finals.
Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Ne-Yo took to the stage with his chart topping single, “Closer,” from his third album, “Year of the Gentleman,” released earlier this year.
