From Olympic Gold To ‘Dancing’ Perfection: Kristi Yamaguchi Nets A 30
Access Hollywood - USA - Kristi Yamaguchi was the first contender on “Dancing With the Stars” to nab a perfect score this season, when she and partner Mark Ballas earned 30 points from the judges on Monday night.

The ballroom partners took on an extremely energetic jive, which resulted in a standing ovation from the entire studio audience, as well as judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

“Hell yeah! That’s what I’m talking about,” Carrie Ann exclaimed as the couple finished. “I think that was my favorite dance performed [of any] season so far.”

And Carrie Ann wasn’t the only judge floored by their performance.

“It was like a buffet —

Dancers judge the judging on 'Dancing'
Los Angeles, CA, USA - The highest scores of the season on "Dancing with the Stars" were given Monday night.

Who's upset with the judges? And it's not just one person. Who's feeling the love? And who scored the season's first perfect score?

The judges handed out some 10s, but some of the contestants are giving them much lower scores.

Before Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas were jumping for joy, they were jiving for the judges.

"It was so fun out there," said Yamaguchi. "I don't think we could have had much more fun. And we were smiling and having a blast and so to get the 30 is

Paula Abdul: I Want to Dance With the Stars!
OK! Magazine - New York, NY, USA - As if being a judge on American Idol isn't enough for singer (and dancer, and choreographer) Paula Abdul, she now tells OK! that there’s a possibility she might be crossing to the other side of the table to compete on the next season of Dancing With the Stars!

“I’m just hypothetically thinking about it,” Paula revealed to OK! after sitting in on Monday's taping of the hit ABC reality competition. And, despite being on a competing network (Idol airs on Fox), she claims there would be no conflict with her show. “There’s a thing called the ‘off-season,’ I think.”

Last month, DWTS

'Dance' judges fawn over Yamaguchi's rumba
News & Observer - Raleigh, NC, USA - Once again, there were no unwelcome surprises for Kristi Yamaguchi fans in Tuesday's "elimination" episode of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

As they've done every week since the beginning of Season 6, the figure-skating legend and her partner/trainer, Mark Ballas, wowed judges and audience alike.

They did it this time with a sexy rumba in Monday's show that earned them a near-perfect score of 29 for the second week in a row.

"I'm gonna give you three words: Fab. U. Lous," judge Len Goodman said.

Not to be outdone, judge Bruno Tonioli gushed: "It's really Kristi Yum-u-licious tonight!"

'Dancing with the Stars': What We Learned On Group Dance Night
Palm Beach Post - FL, United States - It was group dance night on Dancing with the Stars, ladies and gents. And what did we learn? Our hoofers look mighty sexy as cowgirls and cowboys. If some Broadway producer wanted to make, oh, I dunno, Western Side Story (corny, I know!), he wouldn't have to look far for his cast.

We also learned that Len is still hatin' on Mario, Tom Bergeron has become TV's funniest reality show host and Kristi Yamaguchi could probably dance on the moon without a spacesuit.

Without further delay, here's my weekly lowdown...

TV Squad - Santa Monica, CA, USA - Yes, it's that time of the television season once again. The fine folks over at ABC are back with another round of Dancing With The Stars. The competition kicks off for real on Monday, but Erin and I thought it would be fun to see what everyone thinks about this latest group of contestants before they all hit the dance floor. Who looks to be the favorite? And who looks to be in trouble before the show even begins. After the jump, I'll take a look at the ladies competing in season six.
