Crunch time for final 4 'Dancing' couples

LOS ANGELES /*Nicole Scherzinger*/ and /*Derek Hough*/ have been leading the judge's score cards so far this season. Monday night they'll try to maintain their lead when they dance two times with the Argentine Tango and the Cha Cha.

/*Cheryl Burke*/ has taught /*Chad Ochocinco*/ the Samba and the Waltz for the semi final round.

/*Evan Lysacek*/ and /*Anna Trebunskaya*/ will perform the Fox Trot for their ballroom dance, and the Paso Doble for the Latin round.

As for /*Erin Andrews*/, she and /*Maksim Chmerkovskiy*/ will also do the Paso Doble, along with the Viennese Waltz. It's been a quite a ride for the ESPN reporter, who's endured a tough schedule over the past few months and a legal drama involving a stalker. She credits the trust she's built with Maks in helping her get through it all.

"Everybody knows I've had a lot going on in my life," said Andrews."He didn't have to take this on. He's been so good to my family and I, and so protective of me. He's just been everything."

Their bond has led to a special off camera relationship, but just how special?

"You can tell all of them that if we make it to the finale, we going to reveal if we're dating or not," said Chmerkovskiy.

"If you vote us into the finale, we'll listen to what the fans have to say on Twitter. We both have Twitter accounts," said Andrews. "Let us know what you want to happen. So it's like a storybook ending. You decide what you want to happen."

The show gets underway tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC7. Tuesday night another couple will be going home.
