DANCING WITH THE STARS: ALL-STARS  is truly a whole new kind of dance off! The caliber of dances tonight were off the charts good! I mean season finale good! Trying to juice up the show, the producers allowed the stars to choreograph the dances tonight as the creative directors of their and their partner’s moves. It worked smashingly! Most of the stars embraced the idea of being in control and it wildly benefited them all. Leading the pack tonight was a tie between Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani and Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy, each scoring a 27. Right on their tails were Shawn Johnson & Derek Hough with a spectacular Quickstep that the judges called the best dance they’ve ever seen on any of the 15 shows. But, because they broke some of the rules their score reflected that with a still not too shabby 26.5.

Then in an amazing four-way tie were Helio Castroneves & Chelsie Hightower, Gilles Marini & Peta Murgatroyd, Apolo Anton Ohno & Karina Smirnoff, and Sabrina Bryan & Louis Van Amstel with 25.5. Emmitt Smith & Cheryl Burke received a 25 while Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy and Drew Lachey & Anna Trebunskaya each scored a 24. Rounding the 11 contestants out was Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas with a 22.5. It’s painfully obvious from looking at the scores that some duos are allowed more flexibility than others.

And for some reason it seems the judges are gunning for Lachey & Trebunskaya’s exit. They opened the show with a show stopping, fully energized crowd pleaser and yet they were only given decent numbers. Even Lachey looked surprised at their under enthusiasm. What gives? He knocked the socks off the audience and yet he ended up tied for second to last? Clearly they want him gone and if they have their way Palin & Ballas will also be joining them tomorrow night for the double elimination.
