With only five celebrities left to choose from, it's getting harder and harder to say for sure who might be going home in week 8 of Dancing with the Stars season 13. Of course, some dancers are more likely than others to be up for elimination. So let's give it a try!

Most Likely to Go Home
Nancy Grace (total score = 44)
With the lowest scores in both the standard and instant dances, Nancy would be in danger even if she had won most earlier weeks. As it is, she went into week 8 as the trailing competitor. It will take a lot of popularity to make up the difference in scores needed to eliminate someone other than Nancy Grace.

Most Deserving of Elimination
Nancy Grace
Len wasn't wrong when he said it was Nancy's time to go. She has been out-danced consistently by her remaining competition, and this week was no exception. There's a chance that Nancy's fans (she obviously has lots of them ) could save her, but this is most likely the end of the road.

Should Be Worried
Rob Kardashian (total score = 51)
The judges were thrilled with Rob's improvement, and his dances were a lot of fun to watch. With scores only slightly below Hope and Ricki, Rob should be OK -- providing he can avoid the Curse of the First Dance.

Hope Solo (total score = 52)
Anything other than stunning improvement and cheerfulness would have doomed Hope this week. Fortunately for her, that's exactly what Hope delivered. Voters might still be turned off by previous dances, but week 8 should be enough to keep Hope and Maks on the show.

Ricki Lake (total score = 52)
Although her waltz was beautiful and scored highly, the judges were less impressed with Ricki's jive. Her scores (a tie with Hope for second place) and overall performance in the DWTS competition should keep Ricki safe, but front-runners have fallen before...

Probably Safe... For Now
J.R. Martinez (total score = 60)
Even if J.R. Martinez weren't the most likable person to set foot on the floor of Dancing with the Stars season 13, his perfect scores in week 8 would pretty much guarantee continuation to the semi-finals. As it is, there's no way we're saying goodbye to J.R. this week.
