Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough are unstoppable!

Dancing with the Stars‘ third episode was a prom-themed event, and while there can only be one prom queen and one prom king, the leading couple from last week, Kellie and Derek, managed to outshine everyone… AGAIN!!!

The country star and her professional dancing partner took their crowns last night as they earned 25 points for their “Footloose” jive, which according to judge Carrie Ann Inaba was “ridiculously amazing.”

And just like Pickler and Hough, Zendaya and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy also managed to stay on top with 24 points, while Jacoby Jones showed off his muscles to also earn 24 points with his dancing buddy, Karina Smirnoff.

Victor Ortiz and his partner Lindsay Arnold had a BIG improvement as they garnered 23 points, and Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas unfortunately fell one point below from last week’s score with 23 points.

Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb Savchenko luckily got away with 21 points, which was a lot better than their 18 points from last week, while Kym Johnson and Ingo Rademacher, as well as Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd came up with 21 points.

Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess unfortunately scored less on episode 3 with 18 points.

And last but most definitely not least, Cheryl Burke and D.L. Hughley stayed at the bottom with 16 points, while Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani earned 15 points for their as judge Bruno Tonioli put it “sedated” dance routine.

The second elimination is tonight, and unlike last week, we have a feeling that not everyone is going to be safe, so D.L., Cheryl, Wynonna and Tony everyone better cross their fingers!!
