|Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas lead DWTS in Week 8.|
Each team had to perform two dances. The first dance was one that they had prepared through the week. The second dance was an Instant Dance, an element first introduced last season. After each couple danced their first dance and received their scores, they selected a music CD in an envelope from the mirror ball trophy. They had 20 minutes to choreograph a dance and perform it live in the second hour of the show.
Chelsea and Mark, after pulling two 10's for the first time in this season by anyone, were the leaders after the first dance with 29 points. Hines Ward and Kirstie Alley were tied with 28 points; followed by Romeo, 27, and Ralph Macchio at the bottom with 25.
Macchio suffered a leg injury during rehearsals this past week and he we experiencing tremendous pain behind his right knee. He managed to pull off the two dances, but you could tell something wasn't right.
During the Instant Dance, Macchio and his partner Karina Smirnoff suffered and wound up with a combined score for the night of 46 - putting them dead last and 6 points away from their nearest competitor.
Kane and Ballas grabbed the top spot with their salsa during the Instant Dance for a combined score of 55 that put them in first place.
Hines Ward and Kym Johnson did well with their Foxtrot and Jive and earned a combined score of 54. When Bruno gave the couple an 8 on their Instant Dance and the crowd booed heartily.
Kirstie Alley ended the night with a 53, just one point ahead of Romeo.
Macchio is the one in the greatest jeopardy. The only thing that can save his is the popularity of Karina Smirnoff. She's been one of the hottest commodities on the Internet since it was announce that she would appear on the cover and inside the May 2011 issue of Playboy Magazine. We'll see if the fans vote to keep them on board.
