Chad Ochocinco is the only one stopping this season of Dancing with the Stars
from concluding with the contenders that everyone predicted would make the final three from the very beginning -- Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough, Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya and Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
On tonight's top four showdown
, Nicole and Evan wanted to make things clear (if they weren't clear enough) by notching 59's apiece, while Erin is proving to be this season's dark horse with 56. Chad, despite finishing with a 52, is not to be dismissed.
So: Will Chad Ochocinco orchestrate this season's most dramatic upset by getting a spot in the top three, or do Nicole, Evan and Erin look pretty solid on top?
On one hand, you can't totally discount them football fans, rabid and intense they are, plus Chad has shown the most improvement over the course of the season (except those pesky 8's tonight). On the other hand, those judges' scores can spell the difference between who's staying put and who's going home. Judging from our poll
, a big chunk of you say Chad should go home, but we've been wrong on a few occasions, haven't we?
If Chad does indeed defy the odds, who is most likely to be knocked off the top?
