It was a big night on "Dancing With The Stars." The teams worked with coaches, an extra judge was brought in and the couples worked together for group dances.

But Ralph Macchio stole the show with his quickstep.

Macchio and his partner Karina Smirnoff rebounded from last week and tied for first place with Hines Ward and Kym Johnson.

Macchio also received his first 10 of the season from guest judge Donnie Burns.

"That was awesome, and coming from Donnie, that was special," said Macchio. "I mean, he's the premiere ballroom judge of the world."

Tied at the bottom of the couples were Romeo and Kirstie Alley. They each received 30 out of 40 points.

"It definitely was a tough week for me, and the toughest week I think, but I came in here, I had fun. There's no excuse. I gave it my all, and I wouldn't change anything," said Romeo.

In the group dances, both teams of six tied with 30 out of 40 points, so no team had an advantage going into the individual dances.
