Last night, the inevitable happened on Dancing with the Stars. Cowboy Ty Murray was sent home, leaving viewers with Melissa Rycroft, Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini as the final three contenders of season 8. Whether it's because of precise execution, grace or sex appeal, all three all three have proven they have what it takes to bring home the winner ball trophy.

So what else can distinguish one player from another? It all boils down to their chemistry with their professional dance partners and TV Guide Magazine has dished out on the spark fuelling the final three.

Among the remaining couples, I think Giles Marini and Cheryl Burke have the best chemistry. They're passion for the dance and each other come across easily in every performance. No wonder they're now the front runners of the competition.   

"Dancing with Cheryl on Monday nights, I become her man, whatever she needs me to be....[I say to her] You are one in a billion," Marini said of Burke.

Burke, on the other hand has given Marini the distinction of the "best performer" she has ever danced with.  

"Our chemistry is that he gets it....in the live show the audience feeds him even more energy...his adrenaline is off the charts," she said.

Another couple with great chemistry is Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, who apparently is very protective of his partner's feelings.

 "I thought, you are not going to have another bad experience on national TV," he said of Rycroft.

As for Shawn Johnson, who seems to be panicking over every new routine she's about to learn, her partner Mark Ballas has a playful way of motivating the Olympic gymnast.

"[I told her], 'This isn't the Olympics'... and if she didn't do it I would kill her...slowly," Ballas said.
