Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough gained immunity last week from elimination- tying scores with Aly and Mark for the evening, their over all higher averaged score is what pushed them to the top, but this week the scores are setting someone else on top.

No doubt, Kellie was the QUEEN of the Viennese Waltz, but their two combined dances of the night left them with a total score of 55 points and that also leaves them in 3rd place for the evening.

The top 3 spots of Week 8’s performances go to:

1. Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy - 58 points

2. Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas - 56 points

3. Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough - 55 points

The Top 3 Over-All Scores Are:

1. Zendaya and Val - 265 total points
2. Kellie and Derek - 263 total points
3. Aly and Mark - 257 total points

We’re keepin’ our fingers crossed that our Country girl can keep up the great work and pull off more 10’s and make it to the top in the end! Go Kellie!
