After ten grueling weeks, "Dancing with the Stars" is ready to crown its All-Star champ! Monday night, the top three finalists -- Shawn Johnson, Kelly Monaco and Melissa Rycroft -- hit the ballroom in full force, but only one couple received back-to-back perfect scores.
"Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" Week 8 welcomed yet another, never-before-seen format to the ballroom. On top of their partner routine, couples were challenged to perform a trio dance with an eliminated pro or member of the "DWTS" troupe.
Former "Bachelorette" Melissa Rycroft "rose" to the occasion, scoring perfect 10s throughout the evening. Her graceful quickstep earned praise from judge Bruno Tonioli, who compared her performance with Tony Dovolani to that of "Ann Miller and Gene Kelly. It was as good as the best America has ever produced." Troupe member Henry Byalikov joined Melissa and Tony for a trio Paso Doble, earning her the "most impressed" award from judge Len Goodman.
Week seven of "Dancing with the Stars" brought a fusion of dances to the ballroom. Each team was challenged to combine two forms of dance, including the Rumba, Foxtrot, Samba, Cha Cha, Tango, Quickstep and Paso Doble.
