INSIDE EDITION is backstage at Dancing With the Stars, getting scoop on the flubs and stumbles going on.  

The four semi-finalists went head-to-head on Monday night's big Dancing With the Stars.

Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger's intense tango moved judge Carrie Ann Inaba to tears.

After the judges accused Olympic skater Evan Lysacek of looking too serious, he kept a smile on his face throughout his upbeat foxtrot. Later he ripped off his partner's skirt, and used it as a cape.

NFL player Chad Ochocinco's partner ripped off his shirt during his samba. He received the lowest scores of the night, but his sexy performance thrilled the audience.

And there was drama on the dance floor during Erin Andrews' latin number. Her partner Maks stumbled, and judge Bruno Tonioli actually used a curse word to critique him.

Nicole and Evan are tied in first place going in to tonight's elimination show.
