'Dancing With the Stars': An Instant Classic, Performed to a 'Foreign' SongA new week and a new injury led to ... another surprising result on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC).

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Tonight's quarterfinal 'DWTS' episode featured a twist -- the "INSTANT DANCE." This meant the players did a regular routine, plus an "instant" routine. For the instant section, the couples didn't know what song they would be dancing to, until the second they stepped onto the ballroom floor.

The "instant" concept would have been hard enough, but contestant Jennifer Grey also suffered her third injury of the season. Ms. Grey was already coping with an old neck injury, plus a pinched nerve in her foot. Now, she had to deal with tendinitis in her knees. Jeez. Could anything else possibly go wrong for her?

But everything magically worked out. Jennifer and partner Derek Hough got a 27 out of 30 for their planned quickstep routine. Next, for the "instant" round, they had to rumba to the song "Waiting for a Girl Like You" by Foreigner. Though they were unfamiliar with the "foreign" tune, the pair took over with their performance -- scoring a perfect 30 out of 30!

All the 'DWTS' judges were in awe. "Flawless!" said Bruno Tonioli. Carrie Ann Inaba agreed that Ms. Grey had reclaimed "her power." It was an amazing, perfect rumba -- as Jennifer overcame adversity once again. Could the 50-year-old actress be the new 'Dancing' champion that we've been "waiting" for?
