'Dancing With the Stars': Kate Gosselin's tango turns the judges' thumbs up

kate-gosselin-tango.jpgBefore Kate Gosselin earned *gasp* praise for her tango, she continued her tradition of tearing up during rehearsals on Monday (April 12) night's "Dancing With the Stars."

But then again, we might cry too after being the butt of jokes following last week's super awkward paparazzi dance.

The TLC reality star got emotional with her partner Tony Dovolani during practice, confessing that she just doesn't believe in herself ... and that she's also feeling the added pressure of her very public ongoing custody battle with ex-husband Jon Gosselin.

But the mom of eight pulled it together for their tango that actually got positive reviews from all the judges. Carrie Ann Inaba was "proud" and "impressed," while the harder-to-please Len Goodman told Dovalani what a great job he's done bringing Gosselin to produce her "best dance so far."

All this praise left the usually gabby Gosselin speechless (Dovolani was excited about that).

But "better" for the consistently low-scoring Gosselin didn't do much in terms of affecting her overall bottom-of-the-barrel standing. She earned a 32 out of 60 (4-5-5 for technique, 6-6-6 for performance), which put her in last place for the night.

Do you think Kate will still be around after Tuesday night's results show?
