Stars Impress For "DWTS" Veterans Day Episode
Dancing their hearts out while showing appreciation for our past and present service men and women, the stars of "Dancing with the Stars: All Stars" rocked the ballroom in a special Veteran's Day themed episode.
For this evening's dances, each couple was responsible for performing a military-inspired performance as well as teaming up with one other person for a trio dance. So just who walked away with the highest scores?
Topping the leader board was Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani who earned a perfect 30 from their quickstep. Judge Len Goodman referred to their number as "the bee's knees" while while Bruno Tonioli gushed, "It was as good as the best America's ever produced."
Following close behind with an almost perfect score of 29.5 was Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and her partner Derek Hough. The pair kicked off the night with a Viennese waltz that Bruno called "heavenly perfection," then followed up with an African-themed Samba for their trio with Mark Ballas.
As for tomorrow, the stars will be on pins and needles as this week is a double elimination week. Check out the scores below to see how everyone ranks going into Tuesday's elimination (the following scores include the couple's dance, the trio and a combined total):
