Dancing with the Stars 8: Top 12 Live Resuts (Page 1/4)
Dancing with the Stars 8: Top 12 Live Resuts (Page 1/4)
Dancing with the Stars continues tonight with another results show!

After last night's performances, many of the couples have begun to differentiate themselves from the rest of the pack.  There are a triad of stars who have definitively taken the lead, and I think we all know which three I'm talking about.  Unfortunately, at the other end of the spectrum, there are some stars at the very bottom who prayed for votes last night to keep them alive.

Well, the judges have awarded the scores, and America has voted, and tonight, we'll find out which two couples got the lowest combined score and must dance again in the dance-off.

Live!  From Hollywood!  This is Dancing with the Stars!

As usual we begin the evening with a recap of last night, but y'all should read my recap from last night.

Here are the standings after last night's performances according to the judges' scores:

1. Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke - 27
1. Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani - 27
1. Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas - 27
4. Lil' Kim and Derek Hough - 25
5. David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson - 24
6. Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough - 23
6. Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower - 23
8. Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska - 20
9. Holly Madison and Dmitry Chaplin - 17
10. Denise Richards and Maksim Chmerkovskiy - 16
11. Steve-O and Lacey Schwimmer - 15
12. Steve Wozniak and Karina Smirnoff - 10

Uh oh, next week, there will be a double elimination!

Tom Bergeron and Samanthan Harris waste little time before announcing the first couples who will be returning to dance again next week.  They are Melissa and Tony, Gilles and Cheryl, Shawn and Mark (big surprise there - all three of these got the highest scores), and.......Steve and Karina!  Karina jumps up and down and shrieks excitedly, hugging the Woz.  Yay!  I'm really glad that they will be back.  I hope Steve's body can handle all the rehearsing.  But seriously, I bet Steve's disciples are coming out en masse to keep him alive.
