"Guilty Pleasures Week" concluded on "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" Wednesday with a rousing four-couple freestyle set to Psy's "Gangnam Style."
Despite the hopes of my colleague Jarrett Bellini, it appears the viral sensation has a few minutes of fame left in it. On Andy Warhol's 15-minute scale, I'll clock "Gangnam Style" at 11:57.
Tuesday also featured the four couples who participated in Monday's "Call Me Maybe" freestyle as they ran through their individual routines. It was a big night for actress/singer Sabrina Bryan, whose "Cinderella" waltz garnered a 29 (out of 30) from the fickle judges. Click on the above video to hear from the stars about the two-night guilty pleasure frenzy.
Melissa Rycroft, who's bouncing back from a neck injury, performed a tango to "Toxic" with partner Tony Dovolani that didn't exactly blow the judges away, or make Carrie Ann Inaba fall out of her chair. (Darn.)
Backstage, Rycroft told us that she felt something snap during rehearsals on Sunday, and that "apparently some disc fluid leaked out at that moment and that was what I felt." The production team is super cautious, she went on, so an ambulance was called.
"They had to go and get the MRI and I’m glad they did. I didn’t know it was as serious as it was," Rycroft said. "I had no idea ... Tony and I were just grateful that we got the OK from the neurosurgeon and we were able to just go out and finish the night.”
What'd you think of Tuesday night's "DWTS" episode?
