Harris. -Break- To cast your votes for next week's Top 6 showdown, simply log into your predictions, click on the "American Idol" button and answer our weekly questions.

'Dancing with the Stars' cliffhanger: Uh-oh, is Meryl Davis at risk of elimination?

20 hours ago

It seems unthinkable that Meryl Davis could be sent home from "Dancing With the Stars" after weeks of dominant performances. Our users aren't worried, still giving her best odds to win the season, but she may be more vulnerable than we realize. -Break- 'DWTS' recap: Meryl Davis dethroned, Cody Simpson sent home In week two she tied Charlie White and James Maslow as the judges' highest scoring dance, and in weeks three and four she held that distinction all by herself with near perfect scores. That included the partner switch, where Davis was one of the few competitors not to lose any ground. But on Monday's "Disney Night" several contestants earned personal-best scores, so Davis, who earned straight 9s from the judges, was only good enough for fifth place, tied with NeNe Leakes.
