'Dancing With the Stars' Carrie Ann Inaba: Erin Andrews, Chad Ochocinco are ones to watch

dwts-judges.jpg "Dancing With the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba shares her feelings with Entertainment Tonight about some of the final five contestants on the show.

According to Carrie Ann, favorite Nicole Scherzinger is the best dance they've ever had on the show but she "needs to keep it exciting. She's getting a little serious and that's not fun to watch. She needs to bring joy back to her dances."

She says of Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek, "I'm fascinated watching him because you can tell he's a competitor and I know there's a game plan. ... I'm actually just curious to watch it unfold."

"When did our show become a dating game?" she asks of Chad Ochocinco and professional dancer Cheryl Burke's rumored romance. "That's a whole lot of man and a whole lot of personality. ... I think he's a handful."

And finally, she says that Erin Andrews and Chad Ochocinco are the ones to watch down the stretch. What do you think? Could either of them sneak in and steal the crown away from Evan or Nicole?
