Dancing with the Stars 8: Top 7 Live Results (Page 1/4)
Finally, things are becoming a lot more iiiiiinteresting on Dancing with the Stars!

On last night's performance show, every single couple left in the competition really worked hard and improved greatly. The gap between the leaders and the rest of the pack has narrowed down to practically nothing. Everybody's momentum is at an all-time high, without any signs of letting up. It's going to a very exciting rest of the season, folks!

Another thing that is exciting is that we'll get to vote for which professional dancer gets to join the cast for next season of Dancing with the Stars. We'll find out how all of that works tonight, plus which couple will get sent home, so stay with me!

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

With hardly a skipped beat, we move right into the encore performance from last night, which, predictably, is the '60s group number. It's still really manic and swinging and fun as ever, but I have to say that I don't really like Shawn Johnson's consecutive back walkovers. I just think it looks too gymnastic-y.

Now, we get a recap of last night's performances. You can read my recap here. I have to say that I think that Julianne Hough was really adorable in the confessional after she and Chuck got such positive reviews.

Now, it's time for a visit from Sanjay Gupta, MD.  Nice of him to take time out of his busy day to tell us that dancing takes muscles.  A nutritionist explains that Lil' Kim has lost two inches from her waist.  Gilles Marini's resting heartrate has dropped down to 36 beats per minute, and Lawrence Taylor has lost 15 pounds since the beginning.  Finally, an orthopedic surgeon explains that dancing causes lots of strain on your joints and muscles, hence all the injuries everyone has now.

Natasha Bedingfield takes the stage to sing "Soulmate," accompanied by Lacey Schwimmer and Dmitry Chaplin dancing.  I wonder if Shane Healy is backing her up on keyboards.  Any Lipstick Jungle fans?  Lacey and Dmitry are simply poetry in motion, especially with the spectacular lifts.
