Kellie Pickler andDerek Hough teamed up with Tristan MacManus for their Trio Paso Doble, which means we were automatically inclined to like it. But forget like — we loved this dramatic performance. Len is right that the flashing lights and intense smoke were distracting (and unnecessary, given Kellie's talent), but this was still a show stopper.
Worst: Sean Lowe & Peta ... Times Two
There's no honorable mention for worst this week — both "worst" and "second worst" go to Sean Lowe's sloppy, disappointing dances. Both his Tango and his Trio Jazz (with Sharna Burgess, whose talents were wasted here) earned only 21/30 points, and we don't take any issue with those low scores.
