'Dancing' bottom three not discouraged

So while Evan Lysacek's rituals seem to be working and keeping him in the lead on "Dancing With the Stars," there is always someone at the other end of the scale. And while being at the bottom of the heap may not be fun, no one seems to be discouraged. "This was a great challenge," said Kate Gosselin. "I loved this dance."

Gosselin may have had the lowest judge's scores Monday night, but she and partner Tony Dovolani have high hopes that they will continue on for another week.

"The scores of course, we wish they would have been a little bit higher," said Dovolani. "As long as we're here every week, thanks to the fans, that's all that matters to us. You know, sometimes the scores don't really matter it's what the fans at home think."

"They're keeping us here and I'm excited now because I think I'm starting to get it," said Gosselin. "I want to go further and further."

Aiden Turner's breakthrough came with the revelation that he needs to calm his nerves and enjoy the moment.

"I looked at the crowd and I thought, 'I'm going to perform for you and not be so worried about you because I know you're rooting for me,'" said Turner. "I took your advice last week and I took Len's advice, 'Put up, shut up, turn up and go for it.' Edyta smiled at me right before we did it, and we went out there and had fun."

And Niecy Nash was praised for the emotional side she brought to her Rumba. Now she hopes she can come back next week, and bring a little more fun to the floor.

"Well I tell you what, people have gotten all the vulnerableness out of me they're going to get," said Nash. "From now on, I'm back to eating cheeseburgers and telling jokes. That's it. That's all."

One of the nine celebrities will get the boot Tuesday night on "Dancing With the Stars." Catch all of the action starting at 8 p.m. on ABC7.
