It was Rock ‘n’ Roll night on “Dancing With The Starts” (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC), and for the episode’s finale, the contestants found themselves stuck between a rock … and a hard place. ‘DWTS’ abandoned its traditional format to feature a dance marathon. The contestants all had to get out on the dance floor together, and there was nowhere to hide.
During the marathon, the judges eliminated the players one by one. The last couple standing would gain an additional ten points for the night. Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy had the highest score from the regular portion of the evening — they got 26 points out of 30 for their rendition of the tango. But this success wouldn’t necessarily translate to the more endurance-focused marathon segment.
