"Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" was going country in its sixth week. After a week without elimination, the remaining eight pairs returned to the ballroom on Monday, October 29 for another individual dance each and a group number.
Little Big Town kicked off the night, singing "Pontoon" with the Troupe dancing, before Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd took the stage to perform a cha-cha. Oozing sexiness in a rubber suit, the actor got a praise from Len Goodman who said, "You come out and you give it 100 percent!"
Bruno Tonioli called it "sexy" and "kinky," as Carrie Ann Inaba added, "It was so creative and so classy." She, however, advised him to watch his hands. The "Brothers & Sisters" alum scored 27.5.
Sabrina Bryan and her partner Louis Van Amstel danced a rumba, which earned the first perfect score of 30 of the season. "This is what I'm talking about. This is the true beauty of dance," Carrie Ann gushed. Len commented, "Your dance... it was full-on and strong."
Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy came up next with their tango, which Len deemed "a little bit hectic." Bruno said the performance was "engulfed by the flames of passion," and Carrie Ann declared that Kelly made a "nice comeback" with the dance. The soap opera star earned 27.
Refusing to leave the show despite her neck injury, Melissa Rycroft danced a graceful Viennese waltz with Tony Dovolani. Len gave her a standing ovation as Bruno said she had a soul that's absolutely exquisite. Carrie Ann praised Melissa's lines, but noted that her feet were on the ground during the lift. The TV host got 29.5 points.
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough danced a cha-cha, which was praised by Len for its fantastic choreography and terrific movement. However, the judge added, "Too many gimmicks." Bruno said, "It was so beautifully done and so synchronized." Carrie loved that the dance showed "truly a blend of country and cha-cha," but criticized the solo for being "a little bit stiff." The retired gymnast earned 28.
Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced a rumba. Len said, "I liked it. But not that much." Bruno called it "the expression of gorgeousness of a real woman," as Carrie Ann dubbed the actress "the queen of sexy" of the night. The actress earned 27.5.
Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff danced a Viennese waltz, which earned the second perfect score for the "All-Stars" season. "Your involvement with Karina is the best I've ever seen," Bruno commented as Carrie Ann gushed, "That was poetry in motion. And it's so nice to see you guys connected that way."
Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke stepped out next for the last individual dance of the night and they performed a foxtrot. He got mixed reviews as Bruno said, "It's just brilliant... At times you missed a couple of passes." The former NFL player got 26.5.
Later, all contestants teamed up for a group dance. They performed a country-music freestyle to a live performance by Big & Rich and Cowboy Troy. It was a fun number with a lot of complicated moves. At the end of the performance, Kirstie Alley got extra two points added to her score that night for her outstanding performance in the group dance.
