'DWTS' Top Six Rankings: Oh, How the Mighty Fall

dancing with the starsLast week, the Dancing With the Stars judges proved that even the mighty can fall from the top after they sent Jaleel White packing in the last Dance Duel of the season. It doesn't matter if you've earned perfect scores or received numerous 10s throughout the competition — absolutely no one has a guaranteed spot in the finals. So now that the Dance Duel has taken its final bow, couples will have to rely on their fan base more than ever before if they hope to dance another day.

This week, the six remaining couples had to once again participate in two different sets of dances: a ballroom dance and a first ever "Trio Dance," which means each couple had to incorporate another professional dance partner into their routine. And while you may think adding an extra pro could make things easier on the stars, you couldn't be more wrong. As if that wasn't enough pressure, Tuesday night's results show will also be a double elimination round, meaning that not one, but two couples will be shown the door by the night's end.

So who among the six couples will be the next to leave the ballroom and who will make it to the final four? Judging by the shakeup on the leaderboard this week, it's going to be a hard one to tell. Check out the scores below (from highest to lowest) and see if you agree with the ranking scale this week:
