Brandy Leads 'Dancing With The Stars' For Third Week
Brandy Leads 'Dancing With The Stars' For Third Week

Brandy has put herself at the top of the leader board for the third week in a row on "Dancing With the Stars." Last night (Nov. 1) marked the 200th episode of the show and "DWTS" brought alls the stars, past and present, to celebrate the event, including Spice Girl Mel B, Kelly Osbourne, and 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey.

The night kicked off with the group dance square-off. Each team had to perform the Cha Cha organized by team captains and former "DWTS" champions Apolo Ono and Kristi Yamaguchi. Ono's team, consisting of Brandy, Jennifer Grey and NFL quarterback Kurt Warner took the top score of 27 with their routine to Young MC's "Bust A Move."

Of course, it was a little unfair that Ono pulled the two best dancers of the season (Brandy and Jennifer), but Team Yamaguchi didn't come in far behind with their Michael Jackson "Workin' Day and Night" routine getting a total score of 24.

For their individual dances, each of the stars had to recreate a landmark dance from a previous season, with that previous dancer returning to judge them.

Brandy put herself further in the lead with what head judge Len Goodman called "the best Foxtrot of the season." Brandy had trouble channeling her inner sexy during rehearsals (which is hard to comprehend since her partner is Maksim Chmerkovskiy. They don't come sexier than that Brandy). She managed to channel that energy and wowed the crowd and judges with her routine performed to Peggy Lee's "Fever."

Brandy may need to step up her game even more next week because actress Jennifer Grey is at her heels. After a tumble down to the bottom of the leader board and a near send-home last week, Grey rebounded with a spicy tango to the Black Eyed Peas' "Shut Up" in order to tie with Brandy for the number one position.

Both Brandy and Grey have their eyes on that Mirror Ball Trophy, but after last week's surprise elimination of "The Hills" star Audrina Patridge, their journeys on "Dancing With the Stars" are completely in the hands of the viewers. If America has regained their sanity this week then most likely Kurt Warner or Bristol Palin (who ended up with the bottom score once again) will be going home.

Contestants will find out their fates tonight on the "DWTS" results show featuring performances by Taylor Swift and Rod Stewart, beginning at 8pm ET on ABC.
