On "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night, guest judge Cher was more or less the only star that mattered.
But aside from the superstar's appointment to fill in for Len Goodman, her two performances, and her general awesomeness, there was a competition at hand.
After escaping judgment last week, contestants on "Dancing With the Stars" had to face the music Monday night.
And when it came down to it, a sultry samba wasn't enough to save the "Jersey Shore's" Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. Although Snooks earned a 27 for her routine with pro partner Sasha Farber - and out-scored the other pair in peril, Bill Engvall and Emma Slater, she wound up being the latest celebrity sent home from "DWTS."
As "Dancing With the Stars" came to an end last night, it looked like Bill Engvall's underdog run was going to end, too.
The comedian and his pro partner, Emma Slater, had the lowest score among the eight remaining couples following Monday night's performance.
After Jack Osbourne was declared "safe" by co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, Engvall was the last celebrity left on the floor, so all that was left was the farewell dance, right?
The first rule of "Dancing with the Stars" is to always expect the expected.
The second rule is that fan votes do matter when it comes to determining a contestant's fate, and Christina Milian learned that the hard way Monday night.
Valerie Harper went into the 17th season of "Dancing with the Stars" with one desire: to be an inspiration to viewers at home.
Although she didn't make it far in the competition, Harper can consider that a mission accomplished.
On Monday night, "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Bill Nye had to hang up his dancing shoes.
Nye tried to go out in style, performing a jazz-esque routine that was hindered by his recent injury. Last week, pop culture's favorite Science Guy suffered a partially torn ligament, but was still eager to get back out on the dance floor.
