Kellie Pickler and Alexandra Raisman tied for the top spot in their individual dances, but only Pickler can be assured she and her partner Derek Hough are safe on week 7 of “Dancing with the Stars.” Latin Night had each couple performing an individual Latin dance with the top couple safe and the other couples paired in dancing duels for an extra 3 points.

The couples had to learn both their individual dance and all of the possible dance-off dances.
