Dancers drew inspiration this week from famous movie scores. That meant lightsabers, suspension cables, swords, whips and lots of other flashy props. Oh, and there was some dancing, too. Unfortunately, a few dancers lost focus on their actual choreography - perhaps distracted by all those extra props. Best dancing: Ricki Lake's and Derek Hough's tango to "Psycho. " The technical execution and acting surpassed all others of the night. They were just 1 point shy of earning three perfect 10s from the judges.

A little extra bit of Baltimore made its way onto "Dancing with the Stars" last night, thanks to Stevie Wonder. When the Motown recording legend appeared onstage to play a beautiful, pared-down version of his 1969 hit "My Cherie Amour," he accompanied himself on a harpejii -- a fretted string instrument invented just five years ago by a Baltimore County man. "I got a text message yesterday from [Wonder's] keyboard tech, saying it was going to be on there," said Tim Meeks, noting he had worked with Wonder over several days last year, teaching him how to play.

Stacy Keibler always knew that 15 years of training at Jean Kettell's Studio of Dance in Dundalk would pay off. It paved the way for her to become a Ravens cheerleader and, oddly enough, a professional wrestling "diva." Now, the Rosedale native will perform on her biggest stage yet. Beginning tonight, she will dance her way into millions of living rooms as one of the celebrity competitors on ABC's Dancing With the Stars. Keibler, 26, has taken a hiatus from delivering body-slams in World Wrestling Entertainment rings to put her ability to waltz and rumba against the likes of actor George Hamilton, NFL great Jerry Rice, rap mogul Master P and boy-band star Drew Lachey.

One competitor, NFL great Jerry Rice, doubled over in amazement, and the studio audience let out a collective gasp when the host of Dancing with the Stars announced during Sunday night's finale that odds-on favorite Stacy Keibler was being cut. But while Keibler and partner Tony Dovolani came up short in the ballroom dancing competition -- former 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey copped the trophy -- the leggy World Wrestling Entertainment diva could very...

Thanks to a DVR issue, I missed the first 13 minutes of the recording. The first thing I find out is that Betsey Johnson and Tony Dovolani are the first couple in jeopardy. Then we get a montage of the female contestants explaining why they came on the show. It has annoying on-screen graphics. Still not in love with the new showrunner's ideas. Today I was relieved to find out that I wasn't the only one who thought the direction on last night's show was atrocious, with random cutaways, accidental shots of the crew, and poor time management that meant all the judges didn't get to speak.

Semi-finals! With guest judge Maks Chmerkovskiy! What is up with all these Len absences? I do not approve. Oh, wait! Maks is there, but so is Len. Huh. Crowded judges' table. Maks is looking quite dapper in a suit WITH A SHIRT and a bow tie. Leah Remini & Tony Dovolani Paso Doble to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" Leah and Tony make fun of each other's "sexy faces. " I like it when the stars and the pros get this relaxed with one another. Tom tells us that Maks, behind the judges' table, isn't wearing any pants.
