Dancing's Kym Johnson: I Feel Like Hines Is Cheating on Me with His Pillow

They may not have gotten a 10 yet, but Hines Ward and Kym Johnson are the highest-scoring couple this season on Dancing with the Stars — though it may be news to them. "I didn't know that we were. It seems to be different people [topping the leader board] every week, like last week, so I didn't know. That's amazing," Johnson tells TVGuide.com. "That feels really good because it means we've been consistent. I know how much work Hines puts in and if we deliver the goods every week, I think we'll be OK. Hopefully it'll pay off with a 10 soon." They have double the work to put in this week with the Team Cha-Cha Challenge on tap. So how is everything going?

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke Discuss Their Exit

When a show like 'Dancing With the Stars' is filled with so many talented celebrities, one off week can cost someone his or her place on the show. That's just what happened with Chris Jericho and his pro partner Cheryl Burke. After scoring a low mark of 22 for their tango during "guilty pleasures" week, the two were voted off the show. While the ejected duo and the survivors usually all go backstage together to do press, this week only Jericho and Burke did. The rest of the cast hoofed it immediately to rehearsal, since next week's show includes team dances. Below, check out what Jericho and Burke had to say about their exit, what host Brooke Burke thinks of the competition this season and what Len Goodman thought of Kendra Wilkinson's dance. http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/04/27/dancing-with-the-stars-chris-jericho-cheryl-burke-backstage/

Pia Toscano Sings While Mark Ballas Dances on 'Dancing With the Stars' (VIDEO)

Ever since Pia Toscano's surprise elimination from 'American Idol' a few weeks back, the Internet has been abuzz with rumors of her being in a relationship with 'Dancing with the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) professional Mark Ballas. Not ones to let good free publicity like that slip away, the show booked Toscano for this week's results show. To add fuel to the fire, they had Ballas perform with fellow pro Karina Smirnoff to Toscano's performance of 'I'll Stand By You.' That way we could watch the two of them on the stage together to see if there were any smoldering looks passed back and forth. Tom Bergeron said he was advised to ask about the relationship, but that he couldn't do that to her. Instead he asked, "Is he a good kisser?" http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/04/27/pia-toscano-mark-ballas-dancing-with-the-stars-video/

'Dancing With the Stars' results: Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke get TKO-ed in Week 6

One couple was guilty of bringing too little pleasure to "Dancing With the Stars" fans in week 6. After receiving low scores on performance night, the votes did not save Chris Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke from the axe. Despite receiving higher marks throughout the season, with a particularly memorable performance in Week 5 with their patriotic Waltz, they just fell apart during their "lumpy" Tango to Journey's "Don't Stop Believing." Joining Chris in the hot seat was Ralph Macchio, whose Paso Doble suffered after partner Katrina Smirnoff took an unfortunate fall -- not really something you can hold against him.So what do you say? Was it really Chris' time to go -- or did the wrong man walk? We loved his positive attitude, but his elimination does seem like a fair move. Pay your final respects in the comments.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/dancing-with-the-stars-results-chris-jericho-and-cheryl-burke-get-tko-ed-in-week-6.html

Pia Toscano, Mark Ballas perform together on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Well, it happened, folks. "American Idol" cast-off Pia Toscano performed on "Dancing With the Stars"' results show on Tuesday, Apr. 26. It's the first time ever a contestant from "Idol's" current season has performed on "DWTS." Could it be because Pia is dating pro Mark Ballas? Why, of course!Pia performed her stand-out "Idol" song -- "I'll Stand By You" as Mark danced with Karina Smirnoff. Yes, the producers decided to place shots of Pia singing side-by-side with shots of Mark dancing. How romantic!We need to point out how uncomfortable it was having Mark and Pia stand with their arms around each other awkwardly before a commercial break while Karina stood two feet away from them... all by herself. It was like reliving prom all over again. Thanks for the memories, ABC!Pia sounded great and proved once again how wrong America was for voting her off "Idol" so early. Did you hear that last note?! Flawless.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/pia-toscano-mark-ballas-perform-together-on-dancing-with-the-stars.html

Karina Smirnoff Falls! DWTS Season 12 Week 6

Another week, another fall on Dancing With the Stars. Is our true Guilty Pleasure that we secretly love this kind of drama? As long as no one gets hurt, it makes for an interesting night, no?Blame the blasted coat. Poor Karina Smirnoff tripped over partner Ralph Macchios Paso Doble costume in the final dance of Season 12, Week 6. But Ralph pulled her up and got her back on track. We knew we adored him for a reason!Not to obsess, but this is feeling very Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/1cZIAlChLUo/karina-smirnoff-falls-dwts-season-12-week-6

'Dancing With the Stars': Karina Smirnoff falls, Ralph Macchio helps her up

Another "Dancing With the Stars" pro suffered a mishap Monday night, but like Maksim Chmerkovskiy a few weeks ago, Karina Smirnoff recovered to help her partner Ralph Macchio earn a solid score.Smirnoff tripped over the tail of Macchio's coat about 30 seconds into their paso doble Monday (April 25), and it appeared to disorient her for several seconds after that. Once she and Macchio got back on the same page, though, the rest of their dance -- including a wax-on, wax-off hand movement toward the end -- was pretty spot-on.The judges praised the comeback and awarded Ralph and Karina a 24 (8s across the board). We can't help but think it would have been a couple points higher without the stumble, but they at least stayed out of last place.What did you think of how Karina and Ralph recovered?... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/dancing-with-the-stars-karina-smirnoff-falls-ralph-macchio-helps-her-up.html

'Dancing With the Stars': Hines Ward, Kym Johnson no longer on top of leaderboard

NFL star Hines Ward and his professional partner Kym Johnson continued their streak of great performances on "Dancing With the Stars."The couple performed a beautiful Waltz to Boyz II Men's "End of the Road" during Guilty Pleasures Week. Their dance was so stunning, we're actually kind of shocked Hines and Kym didn't score one 10 from the judges, especially since the two couples before them -- Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas and Romeo and Chelsie Hightower -- each scored one 10. What did the judges have to say about their Waltz?Len Goodman: "You're becoming the MVP: Most Valued Partner because every dance you do is just great. It's got such great musicality."Bruno Tonioli: "The performance was pure pleasure from start to finish. The chemistry you have with Kym, it really is flawless. You're meant for each other, like two birds in love."Carrie Ann Inaba: Once again, an excellent performance. But in the beginning... it kind... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/dancing-with-the-stars-hines-ward-kym-johnson-no-longer-on-top-of-leaderboard.html
