Tom opens by reminding us that there is a double elimination tonight. And I'm not getting my hopes up that Woz will be one of the ones leaving, because I don't like to set myself up for failure. Last night, Gilles and Cheryl got the season's first perfect score, and it was well-deserved. So who will be going home (and going home) tonight? We'll find out LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE! I feel like Tom's signature line was a little unenthused tonight. Maybe he knows Woz is staying.
Tom and Samantha open the show and Samantha can still barely talk. Yay! Tom gives the stat that eighteen points separated the top and bottom last night. As we review the performances, there is (as usual) some new interview footage. Chuck and Julianne want higher scores. LT doesn't know how to get higher scores. Dance better?

Steve-O is proud that he overcame his stress, even though he recognizes that he's not a great dancer. The judges "hated" Woz again when they pointed out his horrible dancing. Holly apologizes to the audience for forgetting her whole routine. Shawn is happy that she got a standing ovation even if the judges didn't give her great scores. Ty is humble about Carrie Ann calling him a dancer. Lil Kim was thrilled to get the first ten of the season. Melissa was thrilled with her scores as well. Cheryl compliments her partner for her chemistry and he gives her a big old kiss on the side of the head. You can bet rumors will be swirling now. He's European! They kiss people! Relax.
