Dancing With the Stars 2013, Week 2: Best and Worst Performances

Dancing With the Stars Season 16 gave all the contestants a second shot on Week 2 (March 26, 2013), and we're happy to say many of them delivered — though, sadly, a few fell very short.

So, who rocked Week 2, and who flopped? We bring you our picks for the best and worst of the week.

Best: Kellie Pickler & Derek Hough

Whether you love Derek Hough or think it's unfair that he always gets natural talents like Kellie Pickler, there's no question that the man knows how to choreograph a great dance. This Jazz routine to “Lights” by Ellie Goulding showed off Kellie's artistry and cheerleader flexibility, creating a knockout performance that closed the night right.

Score: 26/30

Honorable mention: Zendaya Coleman & Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Zendaya Coleman proved her dazzling Week 1 dance wasn't a fluke with this technically tight and creatively lively Jive to "This Head I Hold" by Electric Guest.

Score: 26/30

Honorable mention: Andy Dick & Sharna Burgess

Okay, this wasn't the third most technically sound dance by a long shot, but we want to call it out as the most entertaining of the night. Major props to Sharna Burgess for her excellent choreography, and to Andy Dick for giving this show everything he's got.

Score: 20/30.

Also of note: We'd list Jacoby & Karina and Aly & Mark as honorable mentions, too, but this article is already getting long enough. They also did impressively well for Week 2. Jacoby, especially, really brought the entertainment factor. He continues to be the male contestant to beat this season.

Worst: Wynonna Judd & Tony Dovolani

This pains us to say because we adore Tony Dovolani, but it felt like Wynonna Judd was barely moving during this Quickstep to "Neutron Dance" by Pointer Sisters, and we think she was overscored. We understand she's a larger lady, but that never stopped Kirstie Alley or Sherri Shepherd from shakin' what their mamas gave them.

Score: 18/30

Dis-honorable mention: Dorothy Hamill & Tristan MacManus

We're giving Dorothy Hamill a little leeway because of her injury, but she really needs to work on her confidence. This Jive to "Chantilly Lace" by The Big Bopper did not sparkle.

Score: 15/30

Dis-honorable mention: D.L. Hughley & Cheryl Burke

D.L. Hughley's Quickstep to "It Don't Mean a Thing" by Duke Ellington was definitely a huge improvement over last week (and he was underscored relative to some of the other competition), but he and Cheryl Burke still have a long way to go if they survive the elimination tonight.

Score: 16/30
