Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 7 saw the remaining contestants fight hard to advance once again, although no elimination was on the line this time.

Who looks poised to get the boot next week, though? And which new partnerships did we see following the major partner switch ups we first saw last spring?

Check out the results below ...

After some terrific scores and highlights, and some performances the celebs might just as soon forget on Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 7 ...

Sadie Robertson and Derek Hough took the lead outright with a strong performance of the Charleston, impressing judges and the audience alike. Score: 36!

Lea Thompson and Val Chmerkovskiy went with an elaborate Broadway number that was a little bit out there, but the two made it work bit time. Score: 34!

Alfonso Ribeiro and Cheryl Burke couldn't top doing The Carlton dance, but his Flamenco with his partner and choreographer came pretty darn close. Score: 34!

Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson has been making quite a name for herself on a different show this season, surging to the top tier on Dancing With the Stars.

The 17-year-old high school student has had plenty of support from father Willie, uncles Jase and Jep, and newly-engaged brother John Luke Robertson.

Last week, a duck call-inspired samba earned Sadie and pro partner Mark Ballas a nearly perfect score of 37 out of 40, putting her near the lead on Season 19.

The routine, like everything in her life, was centered around family and faith.

Sadie says her life has been turned upside down since Duck Dynasty debuted on A&E, and while it's given her a lot of new opportunities, it has its drawbacks.

"I was 14 and didn't realize how big it was going to be," she said of the last few years. "But there's definitely been some bad things about being in the public eye."

Alfonso Ribeiro looked to his past for inspiration last night, and what came of it was the best score among all of Monday's Dancing With the Stars results.

Ribeiro, who starred from 1990-96 as Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, performed his self-styled dance from that show, “The Carlton.”

With the theme of Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 6 being "Most Memorable Year," he couldn't put it off any longer, even if it's bittersweet.

Rebeiro feels Carlton halted, rather than helped, his career development.

“I was pigeon-holed as an actor based on that character,” he lamented.

“There were years," he added, "when casting directors wouldn't call me because they felt like, ‘Oh, well, he’s Carlton, and that’s not right for this role.’”

But Ribeiro says he has learned to embrace Carlton, dance and all.

Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 6 saw a number of strong performances, as the couples dance to songs commemorating their most memorable year.

It was an emotional night ... doubly so for one pairing.

Now in the one-and-done format after opening the fall with two weeks of Monday-Tuesday shows, Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 6 was the last for ...

Betsey Johnson and Tony Dovolani.

"Thank you, thank you, mostly to Tony and to my fans, this has been the best wonderful thing," said Johnson, after a moving tribute to her adult daughter.

"It's just been a trip, a big trip!"

The designer started out in jeopardy and couldn't get out of it on a night where America had a chance to vote in place of the still-missing judge Len Goodman.

The rest of the scores Monday:

Tonight's Dancing With the Stars episode should be a memorable one, regardless of who scores the highest and which couple gets sent packing.

Why? Because contestant Alfonso Ribeiro is about to bust out The Carlton!!

"Whenever you are creating something, you can't focus on how it is going to play ... you just do it and hope it works in the moment," the actor says.

"I never thought it would still be something 20-something years later."

The dance, which he made famous while playing Will Smith's cousin on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is the perfect fit for this evening's competition.

The theme for Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 6 is the most memorable year of the stars' lives, so what better time to work in that classic.

Thus far this season, Ribeiro has already tackled the jive, the samba and the quickstep, showing us that he's got more moves than just his signature move.

That's the one fans have been clamoring for, however.

When the cast for Dancing with the Stars Season 19 was announced, it was met with a collective groan, along with many cries of:

WHO?!?

But while the average viewer may not have heard of most of this fall's contestants, he or she only needs to know one name. He or she only needs to tune in for one performer each week: Alfonso Ribeiro.

Proving that he has far more than just the Carlton Dance in his repertoire, the former Fresh Prince of Bel Air star has owned Season 19 to date, highlighted by his Quickstep on last night's movie-themed Dancing with the Stars episode.

It included the use of a mini-Alfonso, along the lines of Mini-Me, for an Austin Powers-inspired rendition. We're not kidding. See for yourself:

It was movie night on Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 5, as the celebs showed off their moves and this fall's pretenders and contenders continued to separate.

Alas, as the reality competition reverted to last season's one-and-done format, Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 5 also saw a couple eliminated.

Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff were it.

The pair began the night knowing they were in jeopardy, and based on the scores from viewers and the judges last week, the duo became the third to exit.

"It's been a great experience, putting myself out there and trying something new," said Couture, the fighter who gave it his all, but couldn't get over the hump.

Meanwhile, guest judge Kevin Hart added some interesting flavor to the judging panel, while two contestants notched perfect scores in pursuit of the Mirror Ball.

Who were they? Find out after the jump ...

Is soap opera star Antonio Sabato Jr., now a member of the Dancing With the Stars cast, cheating on his wife with his Season 19 pro partner, Cheryl Burke?

According to reports, that's the rumor swirling around the set, and none other than Val Chmerkovskiy has accused the General Hospital heartthrob of it.

Antonio Sabato Jr., Cheryl Burke

Val, interestingly, is the subject of similar rumors himself, though there is no spouse involved with the brother of Maksim Chmerkovskiy's alleged tryst.

Rumors are flying that the chemistry that seems to exist between Val and Pretty Little Liars' Janel Parrish might extend off the screen as well. Hmm.

This sort of thing happens every season, as a “showmance" will definitely pique the interests of fans of the series and rack up more votes from viewers.

It's also just a fact that the partners dance suggestively, naturally stoking whatever flames the rumor mill might be hoping will catch fire in a given year.

The cast members were allowed to pick their own jams last night on Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 3, which led to an array of interesting routines.

The numbers, both on the floor and the scoreboard, varied widely.

There were plenty of stumbles, slips and gaffes from the bottom group of celebs, while Lea Thompson paced the dozen stars with a solid 35-point effort.

As for who's going home after the second week of competition?

Michael Waltrip, who scored lowest by four points over a group at 28, was the man we expected to go, though the aforementioned group had to be sweating too.

Did Waltrip's score of 24, combined with the fewest votes, lead to him exiting stage right on the second Dancing With the Stars results show of the fall? Find out below ...

The 12 remaining quasi-celebrities tried to build on last week's mostly lackluster debuts Monday night on Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 3.

How did they do?

The celebrities got to pick their tunes on Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 3, so the numbers were as varied as the cast of stars themselves.

In the end, Lea Thompson came out on top with her leopard dress and a jive that invoked the "incandescent appeal of Ann-Margret in her prime." 

So Bruno Tonioli said, anyway. Right behind her was Janel Parrish, whose pretty foxtrot put her in solo second out of the bunch, and that's no little lie.

Check out all the routines below to see who really shined this week, and as for who might be in jeopardy tonight? Follow the jump for the scores ...
