Amber and Derek tango on 'DWTS'

Amber Riley and Derek Hough danced the tango Monday night on "Dancing With the Stars," and their fans had high expectations. Derek's sister Julianne Hough was a guest judge this week, and Derek had joked about she'd be sure to be tough on him. Amber and Derek have quickly become a pair to watch this season, but were they able to gain rave reviews for their tango?

Carrie Ann said that Amber was in fine form tonight, and she loved the pair's connection. Inaba also said Amber's footwork was crisp and clean, and she could tell Riley had worked hard on it. Julianne joked she was actually hoping something would go terribly wrong in their performance so she could give them a bad score and not be criticized for being biased. She said, though, that honestly she was questioning whether Amber's pizazz would work in this dance. However, ultimately Julianne said it was wonderful and she clearly loved it.

Bruno said it was "pure, unmistakably, classic, amazing tango." He said Amber Riley is a magnificent dancer. Obviously the judges loved this tango, so how were the scores? Amber and Derek earned a score of 27 out of 30 points, putting them in a tie at the top of the leaderboard. They were, of course, safe this week.

Just how far will Amber Riley and Derek Hough make it this season? Some expect to see them in the "Dancing With the Stars" finale, as they are definitely doing a great job. What did you think of their tango?
