Wow, what a powerful guilty pleasures night on DANCING WITH THE STARS: All Stars. Tens were flying off the shelf and Carrie Ann Inaba was flying off her seat! While we saw half the couples do their individual routines, the other four couples did the team dance. In a two-part show due to the Presidential debate, we saw Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy, Gilles Marini & Peta Murgatroyd, Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy, and Emmitt Smith & Cheryl Burke do their individual routines while Team Shawn did their free style team dance with Shawn Johnson & Derek Hough, Sabrina Bryan & Louis Van Amstel, Apolo Anton Ohno & Karina Smirnoff, and Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani. Team Shawn did a spunky number to Call Me Maybe earning each duo a 29.5 to add to their scores tomorrow night.
Marini & Murgatroyd are the leaders in the individual portion of the show thus far with an almost perfect 30, a 29.5 – Len Goodman is still holding out on them. Right behind them is Smith & Burke with a 29, followed by Alley & M. Chmerkovskiy with a 25.5. Monaco & V. Chmerkovskiy came in fourth with 24.5. Tomorrow night all the team dancers will do their individual routines while the other half does the team dance.
