Grey started out the night scoring another perfect 10 for her Waltz with partner Derek Hough. It was the exact same dance she performed at the beginning of the season and the dance that left few dry eyes as fans r...

Brandy
Only five remain on "Dancing With The Stars." Yet, the competition is not getting any easier. Last night, the group had a new competition to win: “The Instant Dance.”

Coming into Monday night, the dancers knew the type of dance they would be performing. What they did not know was the song. This meant the dance they were practicing could be too fast or too slow for the tempo of the song. Mistakes could happen.

Jennifer: 27

Kurt: 24

Bristol: 24

Brandy: 29

On the instant dance, the dan...
