Oh, what a night! Only four couples remain on Dancing With the Stars and the dance floor is really sizzling now! Ricki Lake breezed into the top score of 67 with her samba and tango with partner Derek Hough.

As pointed out by USA Today, in rehearsals Ricki said, "I can taste the finals." Keeping her eye on the prize (in this case, the disco ball trophy), Ricki and Derek dazzled in their cheery yellow costumes for the samba.

Len Goodman raved, "Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous." Not only that, fellow judge Bruno Tonioli indicated it was "sizzling hot, bright and brilliant."
Sadly though, when the backstory emerged before their tango, Ricki dished, "I was molested in my own home." Although she grew up outside of NYC and felt inspired to act after seeing Annie, she turned to food after being molested and topped the scales at 260 pounds. 
Proving her resiliency, Ricki lost 100 pounds and launched her successful talk show. Well, after it ended in 2003, so did her marriage. Ricki moved to L.A. to start over again.
After she danced an impeccable tango, Len remarked, "Ricki, I don't think you know how good that was." Carrie Ann Inaba added that the dance had "pop."
Tune in tonight to see who gets sent home! Will it be JR Martinez, Rob Kardashian or Hope Solo?
