DWTS 13, Week 6: JR and Ricki on top; Chaz at bottom

Tonight on “Dancing with the Stars,” it was Broadway week and Carson Kressley was sorely missed. We’re glad they brought Kressley back as a “creative director.”

Again, J.R. Martinez and his partner Karina Smirnoff were on top, but they were joined by Ricki Lake and her partner Derek Hough.

Both teams performed the quickstep and received two tens–both from Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Head judge Len Goodman didn’t think these teams were perfection.

The real surprise of the night was who finished in third place: Nancy Grace and her partner Tristan MacManus. Nancy received her first nine. Not bad for the oldest competitor this season.

Chaz Bono and his partner Lacey Schwimmer returned to the bottom with a 19 for their tango performed to “The Phantom of the Opera.” Still, it is likely that Bono will survive tomorrow night’s elimination.

Probably the couple really in danger is soccer player Hope Solo and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy who were just one point ahead of Bono and Schwimmer with a 20 for their rumba to “Season of Love” from the musical “Rent.”

CHA CHA CHA

Kardashian and Burke would at this point be the second best team in the cha cha cha.
Here’s the scene from the musical:
FOXTROT
Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus : 24 to “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” from “Monty Python’s Spamalot”
