Again, Carrie Ann and Bruno are the only people scoring accurately.

Charlie White & Sharna Burgess, Samba

Why did they have to dance to the Notorious B.I.G. version of this song, when the Diana Ross song would've done just fine? Oh wait. It's because Charlie's a male figure skater who has a girlfriend, so he can't dance to a song called "I'm Coming Out."

Kenny thinks it was a great performance but it lacked funk. Kenny? Have you looked at Charlie. This is a man without funk. Funkless. Len saysit looked a little heavy, but that Charlie deserves to be in the finals.

Scores: Carrie Ann: 9; Len: 9; Kenny: 9; Bruno: 9

Amy Purdy & Derek Hough, Jazz

This routine involves a lot of dancing on a table, under a table, around a table. It IS jazz, so maybe Len won't get too upset.

Tom announces them as "Amy, Derek, and a very happy table."

Bruno calls it a new classic moment on "Dancing with the Stars." And then he says it's "classic jazz at its best." Carrie Ann says it looked like so much fun to do. She does point out a slight synchronization flub. Len salutes Derek's choreography. Kenny says that Derek is defining choreography for a new generation. That's high praise from someone like Ortega.

Scores: Carrie Ann: 9; Len: 10; Kenny; 10; Bruno: 10

James Maslow & Peta Murgatroyd, Rumba

It's a cowboy rumba because they're dancing to "Islands in the Stream." It's a rumba so I'm bored no matter. There was a death spiral type thing, and if Peta didn't keep her feet on the floor, Carrie Ann will ding them for a lift.

Carrie Ann praises his ability to take the criticism they give each week. Len says there is a little work to be done on his hands. Kenny calls it stylish and sexy. Bruno talks again about extension in the hands.

Scores: Carrie Ann: 9; Len: 9; Kenny: 9; Bruno: 9

Meryl Davis & Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Viennese Waltz

Meryl is in cowgirl get up, with a giant ruffled shirt and cowboy boots. This skirt looks like those flouncy pantaloons Little Bo Peep wore, but in skirt form. I find it distracting, but what do I know?

Len loves that it wasn't safe and really went for it. Kenny and Bruno praise it as well. When the camera cuts to Carrie Ann for her comments, she's got her hands buried in her hair scratching her scalp. Tom tells her it's not an attractive look.

Scores: Carrie Ann: 10; Len: 10; Kenny: 10; Bruno: 10

The three Olympians in jeopardy are called forward. Amy & Derek are called safe first, because of course you want Meryl & Charlie standing there together for maximum dramatic impact.

And it's Charlie going home. Boo. Should've been Candace. Although, realistically, Charlie wasn't going to win the whole shebang anyway. He was a good, sometimes great dancer, but never quite caught fire as a contestant.


Meryl & Maks: 40 + 40 = 80

Amy & Derek: 39 + 39 = 78

James & Peta: 40 + 36 = 76

Candace & Mark: 34 + 38 = 72

I swear to you, if Amy or Meryl doesn't win this thing, I'm going to be seriously ticked off. See you next week for the two-night finale!
