'Dancing with the Stars' Recap: Melissa Rycroft Absent, Lil' Kim Triumphs

"Dancing with the Stars" is back with 6 couples left, but one has to be benched for injury. Melissa Rycroft was sidelined after suffering from rib pain, but her rehearsal footage will still be shown for judgment to make it fair. Couples were dancing an unlearned routine in the previous weeks.

Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke kicked it off with Lindy Hop. The type of dance requires a lot of lifts and the fact that Gilles suffered from a shoulder injury sometime ago, did not help during the rehearsals. "I was making a list of famous things from France. French toast, French fries, French kisses, and from today on you can put lindy hop on that list," said Len of the performance. Bruno and Carrie both threw positive notes. The score was 9-9-9, giving it 27 out of 30.

Lil' Kim and Derek Hough did the Paso Doble. Derek was afraid that Kim will find difficulty in the dance because it requires almost no hip action. However, Len said of the performance, "I was expecting 'Oh no!' and I got 'ole!'" Bruno stood up and said "the bitch is back" in a positive meaning. Carrie lost words and praised Kim's progress. The score was 9-9-10, giving it 28 out of 30.
