As always, People magazine went behind the scenes of this week's edition of Dancing With the Stars and dug up some dirt - as well as funny anecdotes about the cast and other moments that you didn't see on TV. Here are some excerpts ...

Girl Bonding Marlee Matlin gave a fist-pump as Shannon Elizabeth earned the first "safe" slot of the night. As the ladies were whittled down, the support turned to nervousness as Monica Seles pouted, seemingly sure of her own elimination, while Marissa Jaret Winokur fidgeted with her dress and Priscilla Presley waited anxiously.

Chikezie Eze, who became as just Chikezie, sang for the last time on the set of American Idol Wednesday after he was eliminated from the finals.

On Tuesday's show, Chikezie sang Brenda Russell's ballad "If Only for One Night." Before the performance, host Ryan Seacrest asked him about song selection and Chikezie seemed uncertain at best about his choice.

Lauren Conrad - whom you probably know from The Hills - made an appointment with NYLON's fashion team this week, and not surprisingly, the staff there was all about the chance to meet one of our favorite celebrities.

Don't get us wrong, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal make a hot couple and her divorce from Ryan Phillippe (go Abbie Cornish) was somewhat scandalous.

Who's on easy street and who's on the chopping block tonight? After last night's American Idol performances, we've done our best to answer that.

Believe it or not, a Kristy Lee Cook elimination actually looks unlikely tonight, as her rendition of "God Bless the USA" was well received. She was also right in between favorites David Archuleta and David Cook, which should help.
