STEP-OFF-Oh-no-Its-Country-Week-on-DANCING-WITH-THE-STARS-20010101

Hurricane Sandy may have bumped most original programming from the air tonight – but not even she can keep the pseudo-celebs of DANCING WITH THE STARS from stomping across that stage.

And oh, God: it's "Country Week."

We're just past the midseason point of DANCING WITH THE STARS: ALL STARS. Many have gone, and we're down to eight. Last week, however, no one got the boot. Tonight's performance will be added to the contestants' individual and group number scores from last week, and that number will help determine who will be eliminated tomorrow.

For "Country Week," well, everyone got a little bit country. Cowboy glitz translates into little more than Honey Boo Boo glam. Regardless, away we go into the recap:

Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd: Cha-Cha, 27.5/30 (84/90 with 3 performances included)
Len: "You come out and give 100%, there are no half measures."
Bruno: "It was sexy and full on."
Carrie Ann: "It was so creative - so sexy…just watch the T-Rex hands!" (I think all of the judges are in agreement: apparently a man in a black mesh shirt and leather pants dancing to country is sexy.)

Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel: Rumba, 30/30 (88.5/90)
Len: "Wonderful choreography - fantastic!"
Bruno: "Your solo was magic!"
Carrie Ann: "It was breath taking, I had chills. It was just what I wanted."

Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy: Tango, 27/30 (78.5/90)
Len: "A little bit hectic..[but] you came out and attacked and you kept it going."
Bruno: "you are back in the game big time. What a comeback."
Carrie Ann: "Nice comeback…that was an ambitious routine."

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani: Viennese Waltz, 29.5/30 (86/90)
Len: Gives them a standing ovation. That'll sum it up.
Bruno: "It was like love in the great outdoors." (Uh, what?)
Carrie Ann: "You have beautiful lines, but you are not dancing out enough." (Bruno and Len are angry - it's more surprising Carrie Ann's the 'mean one' for once.)
