"I was kind of just dumbfounded afterwards when I got out," said Scherzinger.I was like, 'Oh, what's going on?' But I still can't believe it. It's pretty crazy."

Six points behind them, Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were tied for second. They had an '80s-era rumba and an Argentine Tango featuring a stunning lift at its conclusion. Some called it the moment of the week.

"We deserve the 'moment of the week' because we practiced that, and that was a lot of faith he had in me doing that," said Andrews. "So I'm glad we got the 'moment of the week.' We deserve it."

The pair tied with Evan Lysacek and his partner, Anna Trebunskaya. Trebunskaya wowed the crowd in her futuristic Cha-Cha outfit based on "The Fifth Element."

Eight points behind them and in fourth place were NFL star Chad Ochocinco and his dance partner Cheryl Burke.

"I'm not nervous when it's time to go perform," said Ochocinco. "It might not be how it's supposed to look, but when I'm in a comfort zone, that's all I need."

Last place finishers Niecy Nash and her partner Louis Van Amstel need your vote to keep on dancing.

"I'm tired, I'm not even going to lie," said Nash. "I'm tired, but epiphany. I am the last mother standing in this competition."
