Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani at the Top of DWTS

It’s been an intense season packed with talent, but for now Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani remain at the top of Dancing with the Stars. The duo gave a near-flawless performance last night, proving they have what it takes to win this thing. Their quickstep routine earned a standing ovation from the crowd, which is no small feat.

The judges were equally impressed, scoring them with a 30 for that routine. Bruno Tonioli said of the performance, “It was like watching Ann Miller and Gene Kelly. It was as good as the best America has ever produced.” Len Goodman clearly agreed, stating, “Of all of our celebrities, you impress me the most.” Well done!

The ‘Dancing’ Cast Has One Final Practice Before The Big Day

Today’s the big day! After countless weeks of narrowing down the contestants set to take the stage for this season of Dancing with the Stars, Hollywood’s newest batch of dancers are set to take on the ballroom tonight. Performing on-camera for the very first time, Kristin Cavallari, Chaz Bono, and more are bound to mamba and salsa their shoes off, all to score the votes of the viewers.

But before they step into their jazz flats and get their spray-tan on, the stars had one final practice to work out the kinks in their sure-to-be entertaining routines. Although I will be phoning in for my favorites, which Dancing duo has YOUR vote?
