Cody Linley and Julianne Hough on Dancing with the Stars

Last night’s episode of was dramatic on many fronts. With the finals hanging in the balance, the competition was already intense. Then Brooke performed…and the whole game changed.

After weeks and weeks of being near or at the top, Burke did something unthinkable right off the bat: she scored a 21 for the Jive. That was the lowest score she had ever received during the whole season. Although she nicely rebounded with her second number (she got a 28 for her Salsa), the door was already left open for Brooke’s fellow challengers.

Fortunately for , there couldn’t have been a better night for him to peak. Yesterday, Lance and Lacey got their first 10 ever…three of them. They were also the only couple to break the 50 point mark. (Their total was 57.) Will the inconsistent competitor be able to keep up this momentum in the finals? (Assuming the voters even put him there?)

On Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, the battle amongst the final six really started to heat up. With the show’s comedienne out of the competition, the attention shifted to the program’s most important aspect: the dancing.

On this week’s episode of , the producers had one more surprise in store for both the competitors and the audience.

In addition to their solo numbers, the six pairs had to perform in the first team dance.

Unlike last Monday’s previous group hip hop number, these two performances - a Cha Cha Cha and a Paso Doble - were actually being scored. (Those scores would then be added to the individual totals.)

Who showed us they could work in unison…and who still needed work on their solos? Read on!
