dancing with the starsIt can't get much classier than Classical Night on Dancing With the Stars. The music, the wardrobe, the general atmosphere — everything just oozes elegance and grace. Even Bruno was somewhat well behaved (alright, not really, but we wouldn't expect anything less from him). And now that we're getting further along in the competition, contestants are expected to perform more than just their individual dance routines. We've already established that this is a highly talented group of dancers. Now it's time to really put that claim to the test.

This week, the seven remaining couples had to participate in a team dance where they were either: Team Paso or Team Tango. Sure, they're used to leaning on their partners for support, but this forced all of them to trust in each other and work as a team. You know what they say: keep your friends close and your dance competitors closer...or something like that.

So which couples became instant classics this week? Check out the scores below (from highest to lowest) and see if you agree with the ranking scale this week:
