If you're wondering where Molly and Rob are tonight... well... it's their big performance night at the Empire Arts Theater downtown. They showed off all of their best moves at the "Dancing For Special Stars" competition to benefit Special Olympics North Dakota.

After weeks of practice, promotion and costume prep, the big night is finally here. 10 dance couples compete against each other, all for a good cause.

Karyn Hippen: "Anything for the special olympics is very important and a worthy cause, and this is just so much fun. I was a part of it last year and had a blast."

And as the audience pours in, nerves among the dancers run high.

Ilse Coleman and Brian Johson, performers: "I'm really excited to just finalize it and see what we've come up with and worked so hard on. We're gonna get it done and enjoy it from there. Enjoy the moment and enjoy it afterwards."

Jordan Lunski, audience member: "It brings the community together and you get to watch dancers try and dance that probably maybe aren't the best, but ultimately they're supporting a good cause."

Then it's time for the true test - which couple will show off the best moves? And finally... WDAZ's own duo takes the stage.

Molly and Rob didn't win the trophies tonight -- but they certainly won in all of our books. They say they were honored and proud to be a part of such a great event.
