'Dancing with the Stars' recap: Christina Milian shines while Snooki slips, but who went home? (VIDEOS)
Week two of Dancing with the Stars continued last week's high energy season premiere with Latin Night. With the new format, two days worth of celeb dancing amazing-ness is crammed into one jam-packed day. I was looking forward to seeing last week's high scorers, among them our two Latina contestants Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Christina Milian. This week we were also biting our fingers waiting to find out what couple would be sent packing.
So who had the high scores and moved on? And which was the first couple to be cut? Read on to find out!

The low scorers from last week all made up some points this week. The biggest gainer? Leah Remini and her partner Toni Dovolani who this week got a pretty respectable 24, just under high scorers Corbin Bleu with a 26, Elizabeth Berkeley and Christina Milian (go Christina!) both at 25 out of 30.
Speaking of Christina, how did our Latinas do this week? Well Snooki disappointed, going down from last week's top five to a respectable but low-ish score of 20. Her sexy rumba felt a little dry. It was not very Snooki, maybe that's why she didn't nail it (not to mention that she kept talking about how uncomfotable the "sexual" part of the dance made her when behind-the-scenes was shown before her performance). "It was very pretty ... but there was not much more than that," said judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
Christina, though, rocked! As Inaba told her, "KILLED it!" And she did! Her high-energy, goth glam paso doble to Lady Gaga's "Applause" was fun, sexy, and fierce! She totally deserved the 25 she got, one of the highest scores of the night.
As for the highest scorers? The streak from last week continued. Bleu blew the judges away with a score of 26 and really high speed, tap-your-feet jive. That kid can dance! Last week's near-perfect score went to Amber Riley, who this week was called "a little flat-footed" by judge Len Goodman, though judge Bruno Tonioli admitted, "Resistance is futile." She got a total score of 24. With last week's high score, she still tops the leader board.
I know all you want to know: Who went home? Was it Bill Nye the Science Guy or Valerie Harper? Well, after the judges' scores and America voted, neither of them got sent home! I have to admit I was a little surprised. Okay, this was the most nerve wracking part of the whole show, I was biting my nails the whole time! After the interminable minutes of suspense, we found out former NFL champ Keyshawn Johnson and his partner Sharna Burgess were sent home. Sad! I was sort of rooting for him, even though his dance was a little awkward.
It was an amazing second week! Stay tuned to see who makes it through--and let's send our good vibes to our Latina contestants Snooki and Christina!
