Lil Kim and Shawn Johnson are making Melissa Rycroft sweat.

The pair of female Dancing With The Stars contestants, once regarded as afterthoughts in the competition to ex-Cowboys cheerleader, both gained steam in this week's competition, posting identical scores of 26 points (besting Rycroft's 25-point total).

Doing the Vienna Waltz with partner Derek Hough, Lil Kim earned high praise from the judges for her sassiness and sexiness.
