'Dancing with the Stars' Week 6: Elimination Predictions
'Dancing with the Stars' Week 6: Elimination Predictions

Rock week has come and gone on Dancing with the Stars, leaving us with the memories of some insane costumes and a lot of mid-level performances. While it was not the best night for most of the competitors, we did end up with some clear winners and losers.

If there was any shock this week it was the volatile nature of leadership on DWTS. Jennifer Grey, until now a champion on the floor, came in second from the bottom after a messy dance. Bristol Palin regained some dance respect after last week's fiasco to place solidly in the pack. Kyle Massey also redeemed himself -- at least in Len's eyes -- by giving a performance that showcased technique as much as entertainment.

And Brandy extended her place at the top for another week!

Did you miss last night's Dancing with the Stars performance show? Click here to read the full recap.

Most likely to leave:
Kurt Warner (score = 18, overall score = 22)
Although he had a good performance during week 5, Kurt has never managed to rise above the middle in any performance. And with the competition growing fiercer, that's just not going to cut it. His dance this week was stiff and a little awkward, and he didn't last long during the dance marathon. With the lowest scores of the week and no evidence of a devoted fan base, Kurt is in the most danger.

Most deserving of elimination:
Kurt Warner
His scores put him in prime elimination position. His shining moment last week wasn't so bright. And he's been a middle-of-the-pack dancer so consistently that we can't reasonably expect a change in the future. Anyway, does anybody really care that much if Kurt stays?

Should be worried:
Jennifer Grey (score = 20, overall score = 29)
Disappointment is never a good thing in a competition show like Dancing with the Stars. For three out of the previous five weeks, Jennifer was on top. This week, she's on the bottom. That can't bode well for the star's chances. She does, however, have a strong level of fan support, and she has shown herself to be an incredible dancer when in top form. She's in danger, but the fans will probably give her another chance.

Bristol Palin (score = 23, overall score = 28)
Other than the legions of voters who kept her there, is there anyone who thought Bristol shouldn't be the one eliminated last week? But those legions kept her going long enough for an improved performance this week. The dancing still wasn't great, but it was better than we'd seen for the past several weeks. And with a couple of dismal showings from her competitors, Bristol is likely to stick around.

Probably safe... For now:
Audrina Patridge (score =24, overall score = 32)
Audrina came off as stiff and emotionless yet again, but the judges awarded her highly for her technical skill on the dance floor. The lack of emotion is probably going to be Audrina's undoing at some point, but week 6 is not that point.

Kyle Massey (score = 23, overall score = 30)
Kyle is a hard sell for the judges, who (despite their claims otherwise) always score higher for good technique than for good performance. But Kyle did manage to improve the technique this week while keeping that excellent performance. His lack of a strong fan base may hurt him, but the dance should be good enough for another week.

Rick Fox (score = 24, overall score = 30)
Rick gave one of his best performances this week and managed to be memorable in a show of lackluster performances. His height was on full display, but the dancing didn't suffer. And his dance character was quite simply terrifying. To not return would be a true horror.

Brandy (score = 26, overall score = 36)
Highest performance score of the week and a win in the dance marathon (just minutes after she finished her main performance). Brandy is in no danger this week.

Who do you think will go home this week? Can we even make that prediction after these performances? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below!
