Posted by | 0 Comments »

It was Latin night on last night’s Dancing With the Stars. Despite several injuries to the celebrities, the contestants danced the night away making tonight even harder. Who will be sent home and who will stay?

Maria Menounos and dance partner, Derek gave a repeat performance of their very hot dance number from last night. And Derek went without his shirt – again.

Selena Gomez performed tonight and so will the band, Train.  Train performed “Drive By,” their first single from their latest album, “California 37,” accompanied by Louis Van Amstel and Cheryl Burke.

Pop sensation Selena Gomez and her band, The Scene, performed their hit single “Hit the Lights.”  After the show, see who she was kissing on the Kiss Cam at the Lakers Game!!

The Latin themed performances continue with this week’s “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance called “Carnaval,” a celebration of Latin dances featuring acclaimed percussionist Sheila E.

This week’s bottom two couples will face off in a Dance Duel. The two couples will perform the same dance style, this week the Cha-Cha, to the same song at the same time. The dance floor will be split in half as the couples dance side by side and the judges will decide who stays and who goes home.

By the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated, as determined by a combination of the judges’ scores and viewers’ votes on dances performed on Monday’s performance show. Who among the nine couples will be the next to leave the ballroom?

* GAVIN DEGRAW and partner KARINA SMIRNOFF  - IN JEOPARDY
* DONALD DRIVER and partner PETA MURGATROYD - SAFE
* ROSHON FEGAN and partner CHELSIE HIGHTOWER – SAFE
* MELISSA GILBERT and partner MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY  - SAFE
* KATHERINE JENKINS and partner MARK BALLAS – SAFE
* GLADYS KNIGHT and partner TRISTAN MACMANUS – SAFE
* WILLIAM LEVY and partner CHERYL BURKE – SAFE
* MARIA MENOUNOS and partner DEREK HOUGH - SAFE
* JALEEL WHITE and partner KYM JOHNSON – IN JEOPARDY
Jaleel and Kym and Gavin and Karina will have to have a dance duel to see who goes home and who stays.  Unless Gavin makes a miraculous comeback – something tells me, he will be going home.
With 5 minutes left of DWTS, the dance off begins. Jaleel seems to be dancing a better dance than Gavin.
The judges comments:  Carrie Ann said Jaleel had a strong Cha Cha flavor and Gavin was very good.  Len said his admiration knows no bounds to both of the couples.  Bruno said Gavin improved and Jaleel did amazing.
With the fate in the judges hands:
Carrie Ann – saved Jaleel and Kim
Len – saved Jaleel and Kim
Bruno – saved Jaleel and Kim
Gavin and Karina are going home.
