"Just do it," chimed in her pro partner Derek Hough.

"Just do it, and go for it, and give it your everything -- give it everything!" Scherzinger said.

Lysacek remained a good sport despite the silver finish, and the Olympic hero said his friendship with pro partner Anna Trebunskaya made for magic on the ballroom floor.

"We have had the greatest relationship since day one," he said. "We have trust, we have friendship, we have love, we have humor and those are all things that I look for in a friend, and Anna has been all of that and more to me -- I don't think I would change a thing."

ESPN's Erin Andrews said her pro partner (and rumored lover), Russian beefcake Maksim Chmerkovskiy, helped get her spirits up after a widely-publicized stalker incident left her lethargic and depressed.

"I had a lot of people in the audience” that wanted me to get happy, Andrews said. "And they encouraged me to do the show ... little did they know this hot Russian would get me back to life... it was perfect."
