Last night on Dancing With The Stars, the All-Stars came clean when they revealed their guilty pleasure songs. Though fans might have been hoping for some embarrassing revelations in the celebs’ musical tastes, the dancers picks were pretty tame and perfect reflections of their personalities.
Due to the final Presidential debate, the show was only an hour long and just four of the final eight dancers performed their individual routines, starting off with Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy. While their raunchy Samba to Brit-pop star Cher Llyod’s “I Want U Back” had judges Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli in disagreement over the sexy nature of the routine, all the judges agreed it wasn’t Kelly’s best night technically and she received the lowest score of the night with 24.5.
Things quickly heated up on the dance floor with season leader Gilles Marini’s Mamba that he said would be responsible for lots of baby making. A true romantic at heart, it’s not surprising Gilles chose to set his love-making dance-sesh to Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” To give you an idea of just how steamy the routine was, judge Carrie Ann Inaba literally fell out of her chair upon declaring “let the baby-making begin!” The pair walked away as the leaders once again with a score of 29.5.
Later, Marini had some kind words for Carrie Ann.
I love you @carrieanninaba ! I love you .—

Though it was a tough act to follow, Kirstie Alley showed up ready to prove herself with a quick-step set to Simon & Garfunkel’s seductive cougar-anthem “Mrs. Robinson.” After landing in the bottom two last week, Len said Kirstie stepped up her game to the “Maksimum” and earned her best score yet with a 25.5.
Last, but certainly not least in the individual round was closet “Fanilow” Emmitt Smith with a saucy Samba to Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana.” His natural ease and swagger with the shimmies and shakes in the Samba helped him zero in close to the front-runner with a score of 29.
The night came to a close with the first of the Team Freestyle routines with Shawn Johnson leading her group with a pep-rally theme to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” Fueled with cheerleading lifts and tricks, the team tested the limits of danger and scored a “touchdown” with their impeccable choreography and added another 29.5 points to their individual scores.
Tonight, no one will be going home, instead the remaining four All-Stars–Shawn Johnson, Sabrina Bryan, Melissa Rycroft, Apolo Anton Ohno–will reveal their “guilty pleasure” routines and Team “Gangnam Style” led by Gilles will try to outshine Team “Call Me Maybe.”
If you can’t wait until tonight to see their moves, Val gave his followers a little taste of what to expect.
