Tears were falling on the dance floor Monday night!
The six remaining Dancing With the Stars contestants really felt the pressure Monday as they face a double elimination Tuesday. The couples performed one individual dance as well as a trio dance.
William Levy earned his first perfect score of the season for his foxtrot with Cheryl Burke. The Cuban heartthrob, 31, earned top praise from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.
"You couldn't be more suave or debonaire if you tried. I hate you even more," Tonioli joked. Inaba added, "So much fun to watch!"
Other partners weren't as lucky. Both Maria Menounos, 33, and Melissa Gilbert, 47, fought with their partners during rehearsals and ended up in tears. During rehearsal, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 32, got frustrated with Gilbert and told her, "You're making me look like a terrorist." But he apologized after their performance and said, "I truly want the best for this woman. I love her with all my heart. Moving forward, it won't happen again."
Derek Hough also apologized to Menounos for their rehearsal fight. Menounos cried over their fight and Hough, 26, admitted he was a "jerk." He explained, "Sometimes you hurt the ones you love the most."
After the contestants received their individual scores, they danced in the "Trio Challenge" with an additional dance pro. Menounos and Hough performed with dance troop member Henry, Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd danced with Karina Smirnoff and Gilbert and Chmerkovskiy paired up with Val Chmerkovskiy. Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas partnered with Tristan MacManus, Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower danced with Sasha Farber and Levy and Burke teamed up with Tony Dovolani.
With the added points from the trio dance, Levy stayed in first placed with 57/60, Fegan was in second with 56/30 and Jenkins and Driver tied for third with 55/60. Second to last was Menounos with 53/60 and Gilbert came in last with 51/60.
