The ladies are in the lead at "Dancing With the Stars." Sportscaster Erin Andrews and singer Nicole Scherzinger tied for the top spot on the penultimate episode of the hit ABC dance-off. Fellow finalist Evan Lysacek finished third.

The Olympic figure skater collected 52 points out of 60 for his two dances. Andrews and Scherzinger each earned 55 points.

Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine who will take home the mirrorball trophy during Tuesday's season finale.
