Monday's fifth round of competition on "Dancing with the Stars" was dubbed "movie night." The eight remaining celebrities and their professional dance partners performed to music from popular big-screen films. Singer Nicole Scherzinger earned the most judges' points with 29 out of 30. Skater Evan Lysacek received 27. In last place, for the second week in row, was reality TV mommy Kate Gosselin with 15 points.
The couple receiving the lowest combined score of judges' points and viewers' votes will be eliminated on Tuesday's results show at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Here's a recap of Monday's show:
Evan Lysacek, gold medal winning ice skater, and partner Anna Trebunskaya earned 27 points, their season high, for their rumba to "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" from "Armageddon."
Never miss a local story.
Bruno Tonioli, 9: "Your hips are getting better... You're superb."
Carrie Ann Inaba, 9: "There was this tender sophistication."
Len Goodman, 9: "This had artistry, it had musicality, wonderful fluidity... I thought you did a great job, Evan."
Nicole Scherzinger, lead singer for the Pussycat Dolls, and partner Derek Hough earned 29 points for their tango to "Pretty Woman."
Len Goodman, 9: "Your best dance, and the best dance of the season so far."
Bruno Tonioli, 10: "Two players at the top of their game... Portrayed to perfection."
Carrie Ann Inaba, 10: "You guys are superstars... Beautiful."
Kate Gosselin, reality TV mother of sextuplets and twins and partner Tony Dovolani earned 15 points for their foxtrot to "Don't You (Forget about Me)." In rehearsals, Tony became frustrated with Kate. "Kate has no motivation. I have to push her every week," he said. When she finally listened to Tony's instructions and learned a new step, she said "Isn't it fun when you tell me to do something and I actually do it?" A relieved Tony said "You have no idea." Their foxtrot wasn't up to the judges' standards. They told her she lost the momentum she had last week when it looked like she was actually dancing.
Carrie Ann Inaba, 5: "There's some sort of grace that's developing."
Len Goodman, 5: "It was neat and precise, but it wasn't really a dance. It was a stroll."
Bruno Tonioli, 5: "You were just wafting around, distant, you know, catatonic ... It needs a postmortem not a critique... Give us something."
Pamela Anderson, the 42-year-old former "Baywatch" actress, and partner Damian Whitewood received 21 points for their quickstep to Dolly Parton's "9 to 5." Pamela played a secretary waiting for the boss to arrive at the office. Head judge Len Goodman thought she waited around too long before she started to dance. Knowing Len's dislike of props, he said the duo must have had a "death wish" on this dance.
Bruno Tonioli, 8: "Your characterization is always spot on... You're doing a great job."
Carrie Ann Inaba, 7: "Your posture is great... There's something about you that's fascinating to watch." She suggested Pam could be on Broadway.
Len Goodman, 6: "I can't stand all this sitting there... 24 bars of sitting around.. Far too much messing around. The bit of dancing you did do, I liked."
Jake Pavelka, the most recent "Bachelor," and his partner Chelsie Hightower earned 23 points for their Cha Cha Cha to "Risky Business." Jake channeled Tom Cruise's performance and began the dance in his underwear. It was a treat for female viewers and judge Bruno Tonioli. Luckily for grouchy Len, Chelsie tossed Jake some pants after the first few moments of the song. Jake had a slight stumble, which has been common for him this season.
Len Goodman, 7: "You come out 100 percent. You give it your all...it was pity you messed (up)."
Bruno Tonioli, 8: "Why did you put your pants on? Your energy is incredible... one of your best performances."
Carrie Ann Inaba, 8: "There's a saying: 'no guts no glory.' You got the guts so you better enjoy the glory."
Erin Andrews, ESPN broadcaster, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy got 22 points for their jive to "You Never Can Tell" from "Pulp Fiction." In rehearsals, Maks begged Erin to let him be in control and she did, kind of.
Carrie Ann Inaba, 7: "I liked it. 'A Little Pulp Fiction;' never hurt anybody."
Len Goodman, 7: "It was tough routine. You coped with that very well."
Bruno Tonioli, 8: "You got the Uma magic just right, mama, don't worry. This was your best timing ever."
Chad Ochocinco, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver, and partner Cheryl Burke received 18 points for their quickstep to "Bare Necessities" from Disney's "Jungle Book." Rehearsal footage indicated that Cheryl was getting tired of Chad's constant joking around. The duo assured Monday's viewers that everything was fine and the tension was just temporary.
Bruno Tonioli, 6: "It was a little bit too wild."
Len Goodman, 6: "Overall you did your best."
Carrie Ann Inaba, 6: "It's very uneven."
Niecy Nash, the "Reno 911" actress and host of "Clean House," and partner Louis Van Amstel earned 18 points for their jive to "La Bamba." In rehearsals, Niecy remarked about the energy level required in this dance. "Before 'Dancing with the Stars' what I was doing to stay in shape was nothing," Niecy said. After she danced she confessed, "I'm tired, and I'm hungry."
Len Goodman, 6: "You got your personality into that dance which was great... There was plenty of bounce in your bazookas but we wanted it down in your feet a little bit more."
Bruno Tonioli, 6: "There was so much going on on the upper decks, it was very difficult to look at anything else."
Carrie Ann Inaba, 6: "You are the shimmy queen."
Week four: "All My Children" star Aiden Turner and partner Edyta Sliwinska
Week three: Astronaut Buzz Aldrin and his partner Ashly Costa
