Synopsis The second performance episode of "Dancing with the Stars" brought its own kind of suspense, with the question over whether or not Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak would perform. But it was "Jackass" star Steve-O who failed to turn up, forcing his partner Lacey Schwimmer to walk out to the intro music alone.Host Tom Bergeron said there was some mystery around Steve-O's absence, but they wouldn't get to that until later. The scores from this week would be combined with last week's scores and votes before Tuesday night's elimination.Holly & Dmitry: After a quick "getting to know you" session with her new partner Dimtry Chaplin, former "Girl Next Door" Holly Madison took to the quickstep. Judge Len Goodman said it was a difficult dance. He said her upper body should have had better posture. Bruno Tonioli said she "looked like you were running for a bus most of the time" and appeared to have trouble keeping up with her partner. Carrie Ann Inaba said she was "kind of like a doll" and bring dragged around. Scores: 6, 6, and 6. Total: 18 + 18 (from last week) = 36David & Kym: Comedian David Alan Grier took some heat last week for his facial expressions. He said he wanted to show more "with my feet, what David G. is all about." David and his partner Kym Johnson danced the salsa. Bruno said David found an identifiable character, but told him to work on the feet and the timing. Carrie Ann said "I don't think harder is always better." She said salsa has to come from the music, but "it's just not quite coming together." Len said the problem was there was too much of Kym and not enough of David. Scores: 6, 5, and 6. Total: 17 + 19 = 36.Denise & Maks: Denise Richards' partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy said he thought the judges' comments from the previous week were constructive. He struggled to get Denise to relax during rehearsals for the quickstep. Carrie Ann said it was "much better" and said Denise found her elegance and strength. Len agreed there was great improvement from last week, but said there was one moment where they lost synchronicity. Bruno said it was great to see Denise grabbing her tools and using them to her advantage. Scores: 7, 7, and 7:.21 + 18 = 39.Belinda & Jonathan: Belinda Carlisle was still reeling from Bruno's criticism from the first week, which she took personally. Her partner Jonathan Roberts said he tried to incorporate some of Belinda's moves from the Go-Gos into her salsa. Would it work? Len said there was exuberance and fun, but that some of the hip action was missing. Bruno said there was progress in terms of Belinda letting herself go, but said that she had to hit the hard beats harder. Carrie Ann said it was "a bit lacking in grace." Scores: 6, 6, and 6. Total: 18 + 17 = 35.Ty & Chelsie: Rodeo champ Ty Murray said his "cha cha" last week "was really just a 'cha' because I forgot half of it." He just wanted to not be horrible again. HIs quickstep was a big improvement from the previous. Carrie Ann gave a big "yee-haw!" She said it was smooth and he kept up. Bruno said Ty was in charge. Len called it "an absolute metamorphosis." Scores: 7, 6 and 7. Total: 20 + 14 = 34.Shawn & Mark: Shawn Johnson struggled to shake her hips enough for the salsa, but her partner Mark Ballas tried to set as much of an example as he could. Was it enough? She shook and shimmied during the performance. Bruno said she was "one of the cutest little things we've ever seen," but said he wants her to be much more naughty and flirtatious. Len said it was "clean and precise," but said he wants her to throw caution to the wind a little more on the Latin dances. Carrie Ann said Shawn had the ability to focus and praised her for her "bam-bam" hips. Scores: 8, 8, and 8 = 24 + 23 = 47.Steve & Karina: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was practicing hard at his quickstep and suffered a fracture in his left foot. His doctor warned him of the risks, but The Woz decided to dance on. Steve's ex, Kathy Griffin, was in the crowd cheering him along. Len said it was great fun and enjoyable watching him, but the dancing quality wasn't there. Carrie Ann called him a trooper and said she couldn't figure out what he was doing, but she was smiling. Bruno said Steve reminded him of "Wall-E," a bit rusty around the edges and in need of spare parts. Scores: 6, 5, and 6. Total: 17 + 13 = 30.Chuck & Julianne: Country singer Chuck Wicks reminded us he was a man by reinforcing that he was uncomfortable with the "feminine" moves in the salsa. Bruno said it was a wasted opportunity for Chuck because Julianne did all the work. Len said the dance should have been hot and sexy, but "it was all Julianne." Carrie Ann said it wasn't a salsa and said it was showy and she couldn't get into it. Scores: 6, 7, and 7: 20 + 20 = 40.Lawrence & Edyta: NFL legend Lawrence Taylor was nervous because last week's dance was the better one he had to offer, and he scored just 16 points. He wanted to float on the quickstep, but felt like he was sinking in rehearsals. Carrie Ann sang, "That's the way - uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it." Bruno said Lawrence was a competitor and attacked the performance. Len said it was difficult choreography and said it was "well done." Scores: 7, 6, and 7. Total: 20 + 16 = 36.Steve-O & Lacey: Tom explained that Steve-O hurt himself by landing on his microphone pack during rehearsal. He was suffering from some back pain and said he had a plan to make television history. According to the rules, the judges had to base their scores on his dress rehearsal, which was replayed. Lacey Schwimmer stood with Tom for the results. Len said that it was difficult to judge based on the dress rehearsal and there wasn't much salsa. Bruno agreed, saying he appreciated the creativity. Carrie Ann said she saw a lot of promise in Steve-O, but the performance wasn't right for the dance. Scores: 5, 4, and 5. Total: 14 + 17 = 31.Lil Kim & Derek: Rapper Lil Kim was hoping to show her elegant and refined side with her quickstep. Bruno said Lil Kim had bling coming out from every pore of her body. He said the dancers were a little too far apart at time, but he loved it. Carrie Ann said she was "fantastic," but agreed that they were too far apart at time. Len said Lil Kim wasn't shy. He said there was a lot of quantity in the dance, but not enough quality. He gave Derek a hard time for not keeping them in close contact during the dance. Scores: 8, 7, and 8. Total: 23 + 21 = 44.Melissa & Tony: After making a quick splash as a last-minute replacement, "Bachelor" dumpee Melissa Rycroft had to try to build on her waltz momentum with the salsa. The crowd loved it. Carrie Ann thanked Tony Dovolani for bring "a real salsa" and said it was "slammin'." Len said he was gyrating on his seat and called it "the salsa of the night." Bruno called it a juicy salsa. Scores: 9, 8, and 9. Total: 26 + 23 = 49.Gilles & Cheryl: Actor Gilles Marini scored the highest points from the judges last week despite being presumably the least-known celebrity in the competition. He came out in Clark Kent glasses and a suit, but ripped it off at the end to reveal a "Superman"-like "G" on his shirt. Len said it was wonderful. Bruno said there were sparks. Carrie Ann said the couple was quickly becoming the fan favorites. Scores: 9, 9, and 9. Total: 27 + 24 = 51.SCOREBOARD:Gilles & Cheryl: 51Melissa & Tony: 49Shawn & Mark: 47Lil Kim & Derek: 44Chuck Julianne: 40Denise & Maks: 39Holly & Dmitry: 36David & Kym: 36Lawrence & Edyta: 36Belinda & Jonathan: 35Ty & Chelsie: 34Steve-O & Lacey: 31Steve & Karina: 30
