"Dancing with the Stars" Recap: No One Is Eliminated

Oct 22 2013, 12:30am CDT | by ABC News Radio

ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- In a shocking ending to Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars competition, all the couples learned they were safe from elimination.
 
“Everyone take a deep breath and rest up,” host Tom Bergeron advised the stars, explaining the show decided to “discard all of the viewer votes and not eliminate anyone,” due to technical problems last week.
 
The problems resulted in votes accidentally being cast for the wrong couples.  The glitch proved fortunate for both Jack Osbourne and Bill Engvall, because they, along with their respective pro dancers, were the two lowest-scoring couples Monday, and the last to be declared "safe" due to the unforeseen technical problems.
 
"Emma, I could see you tearing up," Bergeron said to Emma Slater, Engvall's dance partner, who believed she was going home.
 
Monday’s competition featured a live improvisational switch-up challenge, where there was no specific dance style known in advance, and the contestants were judged on their ability to adapt to completely new music on the spot.
 
Corbin Bleu won the first switch-up round and added four points to his score.  Amber Riley won the second round and added four points to her score as well.
 
Monday’s show marked the halfway point for this season’s competition. All of the judges' scores from Monday, including the bonus points, will carry over into next week's results.
 
Here’s a rundown of Monday’s performances:
 
Bill Engvall: The comedian danced a "redneck" version of the tango to Jimmy Buffet's "Cheeseburger in Paradise." The tango, a normally aggressive, passionate dance, was "well done" by Engvall, according to judge Len Goodman, who said Engvall's version was "sharp and tangy." Bruno Tonioli thought Engvall "lost the smoothness of the footwork of the tango," but still gave him a score of 8. "You did what you did best, which was entertain us," Carrie Ann Inaba added. Total score: 23 out of a possible 30 points.
 
Elizabeth Berkley Lauren: The actress earned the first perfect score of the season with her sexy cha cha cha to Joss Stone's “Put Your Hands on Me." Lauren's professional dancing partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, wanted to show off a different, more empowering side of her, and it paid off. "So sexy, it just killed me," said Tonioli. "It was so clean, it was so sharp. It was brilliant." Inaba agreed, comparing Lauren to a white tiger on the dance floor. Goodman called the pair a "formidable partnership." Total score: 30/30.
 
Leah Remini: After her contemporary routine failed to impress the judges last week, Remini's quick step Monday with partner Tony Dovolani was much more highly praised. Inaba called it the biggest turnaround she's ever seen. Goodman compared Remini's time on the dance floor to a game of Chutes and Ladders, saying, “Last week you shot down, this week way up.” Tonioli even compared the actress to the legendary dancer Ginger Rogers. "You can do it and you proved it," he said. "You were light and you moved well." All of the judges gave Remini's performance scores of nine. Total score: 27/30.
 
Brant Daugherty: The actor and partner Peta Murgatroyd’s sensual tango to "The Night Out" by Martin Solveig was received incredibly well by the judges, with Goodman comparing it to a glass of dry white wine. "[It was] sharp, crisp, tasty, no gimmicks," he said, giving Daugherty a perfect 10. Tonioli loved seeing Daugherty's progression and his ability to finally dance "like a leading man," saying he went from being a "prince charming" into becoming a "prince of darkness." The judges thought it was his best performance, with Inaba calling his technique incredible. Total score: 28/30.
 
Amber Riley: The actress earned perfect 10s from both Tonioli and Inaba, with the exception of earning an 8 from Goodman, who called Riley's samba with partner Derek Hough "a tad repetitive." "I'm always the party pooper," he said. Inaba, on the other hand, thought Riley nailed every move and included all the perfect elements. "Every time I watch you, I can only think of the word 'fierce,'" Inaba declared. Riley earned 28 points for the dance and earned four additional points for winning the second round of the switch-up challenge. Total score: 32 points.
 
Jack Osbourne: The TV personality's paso doble with partner Cheryl Burke earned a score of 9 from Goodman, who called the performance "top notch." However, Inaba felt the intense dance was a bit out of character for Osbourne, whom she called, "such a warm guy." Tonioli said Osbourne's "timing wasn't as good as usual," but "overall, it was a good effort." Total score: 25/30.
 
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi: The Jersey Shore star and her partner Sasha Farber danced an energetic fox trot to "Build Me Up Buttercup." Snooki wore a flowing yellow gown. "You graduated from charm school," said Tonioli, who gave Polizzi a score of 9. "You've never been so elegant." Inaba was equally impressed with her performance, saying the reality TV star has "really, truly improved the most," adding Polizzi has "turned into a ballerina on the dance floor." Total score: 27/30.
 
Corbin Bleu: The actor and his partner Karina Smirnoff danced a masculine Viennese Waltz to HBO's Game of Thrones theme song. "Game of Thrones is my all-time favorite show on TV right now," Bleu explained. However, attempting to perform like the show's barbarians may have worked against him. "Usually you have wonderful flowing lines...but playing the barbarian, it somehow lost its flow," Tonioli said of Bleu's interpretation of the waltz. Goodman admitted he "loved the theme," and "thought it was a wonderful interpretation," but ultimately, he "didn't really feel it was a Viennese Waltz." Bleu earned a total of 23 points, but also won the first switch-up round and added four points for a grand total of 27.
 
Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.
