In second place with 26 points was J.R. Martinez did the Foxtrot to "The Pink Panther" theme.

His partner, Karina Smirnoff, made him use his behind to get ahead.

"He's got a perky booty," she said.

"She said in rehearsal, 'I want you to show that butt, show that butt!'" Martinez said.

With triple eights, Hope Solo and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy tied for third place for their Foxtrot to "You've Got a Friend in Me" from "Toy Story."

"Next week, he's going to be bring it," Burke said of Kardashian. "Next week, we need to step it up for sure because I think he's a contender."

They tied with Rob Kardashian and partner Cheryl Burke for their Paso Doble to the "Superman" theme.

"I've had enough of this tie and middle of the pack," Chmerkovskiy said. "I just want to be on top over there."

Right in the middle with 23 points were David Arquette and partner Kym Johnson for their Paso Doble to the theme from "Indiana Jones."

With 21 points, there was a three-way tie for sixth place.

Chynna Phillips and partner Tony Dovolani, who danced to "Mission: Impossible," skipped the press line so Dovolani could go to the emergency room for an ankle X-ray. It turned out to be a sprained ankle.

Nancy Grace and partner Tristan McManus also tied for sixth.

"I think we deserved three eights, not three sevens," she said. "But you know what? That's the way life is."

Chaz Bono's 21 was his best score to date. After dancing to "Gonna Fly Now" from "Rocky," He got a standing ovation from his nervous mother, Cher.

"I know when she watches it at home, she's nervous, too," Bono said. "She's just like, 'It's so nerve-wracking being here,' and then said, 'I don't really understand the judging here.' And we said, 'Neither do we.'"

"Welcome to the show, Cher. None of us get it," said Bono's partner, Lacey Schwimmer.

One point behind in last place was Caron Kressley for his dance to a song from "Pirates of the Caribbean."

"I've never had facial hair before, got a hug from Cher. My life is basically complete," the ever-high spirited Kressley said.
