It's Latin Night. Guest judge Ricky Martin starts the show with a performance, which is seemingly live. Tom Bergeron mentions that Danica McKellar broke a rib over the weekend, but she's out there shimmying and shaking during the intros, so girl is tough. First results of the night: Danica & Val are safe; James & Peta are in jeopardy; Amy & Derek are safe. Amy Purdy & Derek Hough, Rumba Amy and her boyfriend have been having trouble during the last year and a half and the idea of a "dance of love" gets her emotional.

Ricky Martin is back. He still wants your love, but he's not going to dance for it. Forget the white-hot moment as the most famous pop star on the planet, the screaming hordes of females, the supernova glare of publicity. Forget too, those hypnotic she-bang hips, the eye-popping dance machine moves. Now, Martin wants to make it real. He wants to feel. He wants to tone down the speed of his life just like he's toned down the speed of the songs on his new album, Almas del Silencio (Souls of Silence)

Here is Ricky Martin's to-do list: "Need to pick up injured cat from fire." "Dog bit two family members." "Stray cats and kittens on porch of vacant property and living in boxes without roof or water." "A German shepherd puppy is being kept in a cage too small for him and can't stand up." "Owner moved out and left animal on the street." "Citizen walked by and saw ribs on a dog." Ricky Martin is an animal control officer with the Baltimore health department, and this list is a fraction of complaints he investigated all over the city Thursday.

The knee-jerk reaction will be to slam Ricky Martin's first Latin album since 1998's Vuelve and since Livin' la Vida Loca, the late-'90s Latin pop crossover sensation, turned him into an across-the-board superstar. And because Almas del Silencio follows 2000's mediocre Sound Loaded, which couldn't match the sales of 1999's 7 million-selling Ricky Martin, the thought will be that he returned to the safety of a genre that would scrutinize him less and welcome him instantly. Part of that is true.

Most acts on TV live in mortal fear of being "too hip for the room" -- that is, working off cultural references most squares wouldn't get.That's not an issue on MTV. Much of what gets airtime on MTV may sail right over the heads of average Americans (especially if they're over the age of 25), but within its own rarefied frame of reference, it's almost impossible to be too hip for MTV.But Lord knows, the Video Music Awards broadcast last night tried.With comedian Chris Rock as host, airing live from New York's Metropolitan Opera House (!

Harry Potter mania may have captured media headlines last year, but another publishing phenomenon may have put more young noses in books than Harry did: unauthorized biographies. "Unauthorized" may be a little misleading. These fan-targeted books are shamelessly flattering to their subjects, and no one would call them great works of literature. But they are great sellers. The boy band 'N Sync has inspired two giant sellers. According to its publisher, Random House, there are 750,000 copies of " 'N Sync: The Official Book" in print, whereas Scholastic Paperbacks reports 450,000 copies in print of " 'N Sync-Backstage Pass: Your Kickin' Keepsake Scrapbook!"

Cousin Estelle is graduating from library school. Great Aunt Gladys got a nose job. The boss' sister-in-law brought home a new Chihuahua. Special occasions such as these call for greeting cards -- little folded rectangles of sentimentality designed to say in writing everything that's too icky to say in person. So you go to the store and select a card, all the while wondering whether a card is really enough to mark this most momentous of occasions. While waiting in line at the register, something catches your eye: it's a book, a teeny-tiny, 2 3/4 by 3 1/4 -inch volume of wonder, just 127 pages long, that's so absolutely, fabulously, tremendously small and cute and perfect you simply cannot leave it behind.

"And the winner is ... Carlos Santana!" Expect to hear that phrase a lot when the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards telecast airs on Wednesday (live at 8 p.m., on CBS, Channel 13). It won't be simply because the veteran guitarist is the most-mentioned name on the Grammy ballot, with 11 nominations spread across 10 categories. No, Santana will probably make a Grammy sweep because he's the ideal Grammy candidate. To begin with, he's popular. "Supernatural," Santana's current album, has sold more than 6 million copies to date, and shot back to the top of the charts after the Grammy nominations were announced last month.
