"DANCING WITH THE STARS"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Zendaya or Kellie Pickler will be winning the mirrorball trophy. At least according to the judges' scores on "Dancing With the Stars." They both got two rounds of perfect 10s on last night's show. A single point separates Zendaya and Pickler, based on their performances in the cha-cha relay. Aly Raisman had perfect scores on her freestyle too, but not her first dance. The judges also praised Jacoby Jones. But the Baltimore Ravens' star fell short of the rest on his performances. The winner will be crowned on tonight's show.

"DANCING WITH THE STARS"-TORNADO
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Usually the audience is applauding on "Dancing With the Stars," as the show returns from a commercial break. But not on last night's show. Tom Bergeron asked the studio audience to remain silent after one break. He noted they're live and to go to air in the shadow of another tragic event. Last month, it was the Boston bombings. Last night, it was the devastating tornado in Oklahoma. Bergeron says their thoughts are with the victims and their families. Bergeron then asked the audience to applaud the first-responders who were still searching for victims as the broadcast aired.
