The show is kicking off with a lot of fluff. Tonight’s encore dance is Kellie and Derek’s freestyle! A touching performance that received a standing ovation from the judges.

The couple with the lowest amount of points and landing in fourth place are Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas. They have been eliminated from the competition. Wynonna Judd is now performing “I Want To Know What Love Is” by Foreigner. Ugh, this performance of the song really sucks.

Lisa Vanderpump is taking the ballroom floor to perform the Foxtrot. Len Goodman got on the dance floor with her and shook his tail feathers.

Now, we are hearing from Dorothy Hamill and after withdrawing from the competition, we’ve learned that Tristan MacManus cannot dance. UGH. She’s doing the Viennese Waltz with Henry Byalikov.

Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess are dancing again to “Pokerface”.

Jacoby and Karina are doing the Salsa to Marc Anthony’s Aquanile. PSY is taking the stage to perform his new song Gentleman. Yawn.

Kellie and Derek are working on their Instant Dance which is the Jive. They’re dancing to You Keep Knockin’ by Little Richard. Zendaya and Val are preparing their Jive to Rocky Road.

Up next on the stage is Pitbull, performing his song Feel This Moment.

Dancing their Instant Salsa are Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff. Not bad! Len said he’s full of fun and vitality and he has a naturalness about him. He always delivers and he’s a breath of fresh air. Bruno said he’s got the power and the spice of life. Carrie Ann said he had a rough start, but it’s not where you start – it’s where you finish. Scores: 10-10-10 = 30/30

Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough are performing their Instant Jive. Bruno said Kellie reminds her of Julianne Hough and it was unbelievably wonderful. Carrie Ann said they are like a bright ray of sunshine and she loves to watch them. Len said she is the bees knees and she’s awesome! Scores: 10-10-10 = 30/30

Zendaya and Val are performing their Instant Jive. Val is really giving it his all tonight! It’s a shame about his eye, though…poor guy. Carrie Ann said she has a magical quality when she dances. It’s been a joy. Len said she danced with such maturity. She puts character and personality into each performance. Bruno said for somebody so young, she has pitch perfect performance instinct. Twinkle, twinkle little star, you will go very far. Scores: 10-10-10 = 30/30

Jessica Sanchez is on the stage now performing Feel This Moment. Landing in third place for this season are Jacoby and Karina!
