Disney star Roshon Fegan tells E! News he's in love with his professional partner Chelsie Hightower, and who can blame him?!

"I'm kind of in love with Chelsie right now," Roshon tells us when we ask if he's currently dating anyone. "Honestly, I'm just working hard. I'm staying focused. My main goal right now is to get everything out of my heart to my fans because they're my babies at this point. I got to give everything out to find out how much love I want to receive. Let me get it out of me first, then we can figure out whoever the girl is, if it's Chelsie or not."

Still, Roshon is facing some competition for Chelsie's heart: his friends! "They're just like, 'Your partner's fine!" Roshon says of his friends. Chelsie's response to all of this gushing: giggling!

Sherri Shepherd missed a step during her jive, but she's not going to lose sleep over the mistake. "I was just like, 'You know what? Let me just do Tina Turner!' I felt good. You go out there, you take risks and you be fearless. We were, so it worked out." Her partner Val Chmerkovskiy takes some blame for the misstep, saying, "I was counting for her and I was like, 'Girl, you're killing it right now' and then at that moment she forgot to sit down and do the move!"

Maria and partner Derek Hough almost had a setback this week when she injured her rib, but they didn't want the focus to be on her injury. "Derek and I have so much fun together and we're working so hard that the last thing I wanted it to be about was, 'Oh, the sympathy vote. Poor Maria!'" Maria explains of trying to keep her injury under wraps. "I don't want that. We really worked hard to keep it quiet." Derek adds, "We don't want to be 'Oh, we're the injury couple.'"

Still, Maria is battling a rib injury, telling us, "Every day I wear a rib brace."

If the ballroom audience is any indication, it seems actor William Levy is a fan favorite and Cheryl Burke has a plan to keep all of his female fans voting for him next week, joking that he would be wearing "a g-string!" She says, "We do have the salsa. He won't be in a tuxedo, that's for sure."

One contestant who won't be taking off his shirt anytime soon? Singer Gavin DeGraw, who says, "If he takes his shirt off, I'd be happy to have it laundered for him! I will probably not be doing anything like that."

What did you think of tonight's show? Do you think Roshon and Chelsie would make a cute couple? Sound off in the comments!
