Nicole Scherzinger and Evan Lysacek received the joint top scores on 'Dancing With The Stars' last night (17.05.10).
The former Pussycat Dolls singer and her dance partner Derek Hough scored 59 out of 60 for their two routines, along with the Olympic figure skater and his professional partner Anna Trebunskaya in an episode where the judges handed out more perfect 10 scores than any other mark.
Nicole was awarded full marks for her version of the Argentine Tango, to huge praise from the panel - consisting of Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
This was followed by Chad Ochocinco's Waltz, which received a score of 27 - the same as Erin Andrew's Vienesse Waltz.
However, a minor slip at the end of the routine caused the pretty sportscaster's partner Maksim Chmerkovskiv to be criticised by Bruno, whose comments had to be censored.
Describing the routine, Len added: "I don't know what to make of it Maks. I'm a traditionalist... this is a funky monkey kind of Paso Doble. I'm confused really."
Nicole and Derek then returned to the dance floor with a feisty Cha Cha Cha which saw them gain 29 points.
Chad and his partner Cheryl Burke took centre stage once more with their Samba, for which they only managed to gain 25 out of 30.
The final routine was performed by ice-skater Evan, who scored a perfect 30 for his routine.
