There are some nights when DANCING WITH THE STARS is just completely overdone. When it traipses from Drag-Cher glam to distracting. This was the case with tonight's episode of DANCING WITH THE STARS: ALL STARS. Sometimes it just makes you wonder if, when it comes to costuming and scripting and effects and adjectives, the cast threw a wine, craft, and vodka day at the studio.

Tonight, the "All Stars" were forced to honor past DANCING routines for Iconic Dance Week. There were some definite high-points that make even a skeptic DANCING viewer smirk (Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough) - and some low (everything Carrie Ann said.) The scores were, all in all, on the higher edge of the spectrum.

Here's how the score board broke down:
Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya: Cha Cha, 24/30
Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd: Tango, 25/30
Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani: Samba, 27/30
Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff: Foxtrot, 25.5/30
Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy: Paso Doble, 27/30
Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Cha Cha, 24/30
Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel: Paso Doble, 25.5/30
Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke: Paso Doble, 25/30
Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower: Quick Step, 25.5/30
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas: Paso Doble, 22.5/30
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough: Quick Step, 26.5/30
