Tonight's decision of inviting Paula Abdul to guest judge on the same panel as Carrie Ann Inaba, an act known as turning the entire cock-a-doodie universe on its head, can only be described as either the most ingenious or most cruel thing broadcast television has ever done to an audience. I mean, those women, as shrill and confusing as they are, make for great TV.

Announced last week, the contestants of DANCING WITH THE STARS: ALL-STARS were left to the mercy of their quick-stepping peers; the teams each chose the style of dance another would perform for tonight's episode. And it mostly turned out pretty well. Surprisingly.

Here's a breakdown of the leader board:
Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Charleston, 30/40
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas: Rock & Roll, 32/40
Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel: Disco, 35.5/40
Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke: Bolero, 36/40
Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd: Bollywood, 39.5/40
Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani: Jitterbug, 37/40
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough: Mambo, 39.5/40
Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff: Hip Hop, 34/40
Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy: Contemporary, 37.5/40
