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 ...

New Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough appears to have indirectly outed Season 19 cast member Jonathan Bennett as gay on Extra this week.

How? It happened innocently with a story she told Mario Lopez.

“He tweeted at me last year and said I had a nice butt, and I thought, ‘Oh he’s hitting on me - I should try to go on a date with him!’” Hough told Lopez.

“What happened?” Lopez asked the former DWTS professional.

“He’s gay - so I was like, ‘That’s not gonna work!’” Hough joked.

Hough clearly didn't realize that while Bennett was rumored to have dated men, the Mean Girls cast member has never commented publicly on his sexuality.

He also hasn’t responded to Hough outing him, at least not yet.

Lolo Jones was the first celebrity to get the chop this season on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show, and it's safe to say she's not taking it well.

The 32-year-old Olympic track star did the obvious thing immediately after being sent home, logging in to Facebook and unleashing an epic rant.

Jones, who has been widely hyped but has failed to deliver as an athlete on some of the biggest stages in her sport, was clearly stung by her DWTS exit.

Lolo's past failures to meet expectations were weighing on her. She writes:

"When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics and that people constantly tease me about. I thought oh no here it comes again."

"People are going to ridicule me. I'm so tired of feeling embarrassed."

Sadie Robertson and pro partner Mark Ballas sailed through the first Dancing With the Stars results show of the season. That was no surprise to any viewer.

What might surprise some is that Mark feels the Duck Dynasty star, despite her lack of dance training, has what it takes to go all the way this fall!

The couple's Cha Cha on the premiere earned the Quack Pack one of the best scores of the evening, a solid 34 out of 40 that wowed Ballas himself.

Mark noted that he was equally impressed with Bethany Mota, Alfonso Ribeiro, Randy Couture and Tommy Chong, from whom he didn't know what to expect.

Sadie, though, "just pulled it out of the bag," Ballas says. "She hit this 'on' switch that I hadn’t seen in rehearsals yet. It blew me away! She was so cute."

"Her face lit up the whole room. She had a lot of rhythm, which is amazing for someone with no dance experience. She’s naturally gifted - she’s got it!"

If you're a Fresh Prince of Bel Air enthusiast or a card-carrying member of the Robertson Quack Pack from Louisiana, Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 1 was great.

For most of the rest of the celebrity cast, not so much.

There were stumbles, slips and gaffes galore in Monday's season premiere, which is to be expected because these are mostly dancing rookies here.

Still, plenty of celebs were sweating bullets tonight.

Who earned the lowest score, combined with the fewest votes, and had to exit stage left on the first Dancing With the Stars results show of the fall? Find out below ...

Your eliminated contestant in DWTS Season 19 Episode 2 is:

LOLO JONES.

And just like that, in the blink of an eye, only 12 couples remain. Being the first one eliminated, after all the hype and all the prep work, has got to sting.

The opening night's scoreboard left easily a half dozen tandems in serious jeopardy, as totals in the 20s (out of 40) were not the exception, but the norm.

With no clear weak link, but few strong ones, it came down to the voters, and when the tallies were tabulated, one star's dream came to an early end.

On the Season 19 premiere of Dancing With the Stars, this fall's collection of celebrities made their debuts with their pro partners on the famed ABC parquet.

Who shone brightest and who flopped?

"The ballroom is bursting with enthusiasm," longtime host Tom Bergeron exclaimed, and he wasn't talking about new judge Julianne Hough's bust line.

Wait, he was, actually. Never mind.

That like could also have been used to describe some of Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 1's best highlights, however. And there were many.

There were also stumbles aplenty.

Many of the stars did not put their best foot forward, at least not at the onset, but we blame the treacherous Cha-Cha for the relative lack of greatness.

Here were the scores from Monday:

Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson and her professional dancing partner Mark Ballas want you to join the Dancing With the Stars Quack Pack this fall.

The pair, among the members of Dancing With the Stars cast for Season 19 we're most looking forward to seeing, announced their "team name" today:

Ballas got tongue tied, so Robertson chimed in, saying, “Quack Attack! Be a part of the Quack Pack,” before flapping her arms like bird wings and quacking.

The 17-year-old rose to fame on her family’s A&E show, which chronicles the life and times of the Robertsons’ duck call business and silly shenanigans.

Sadie’s team name is more than appropriate, in other words.

You can watch Dancing With the Stars online or Duck Dynasty this fall to see Sadie in all her glory. But she's got some pretty stiff competition on the former.

There's a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum, a fashion designer, a Pretty Little Liars starlet and even a member of the old Mean Girls cast lacing up the shoes.

DWTS premieres Monday. Scroll through the cast below!

These hoes may not be loyal, but Saturday Night Live and Dancing With The Stars are sticking by Chris Brown, who will reportedly perform on both shows this fall.

T H U G

The singer's sixth studio album X is set for a September 16 release, and Brown is already lining up a full promotional schedule to push the crap out of the thing.

“In support and promotion for X, Chris will be doing the typical promotional slate to get the word out that the album is coming," says an insider.

"That will include appearances and performances on both SNL and DWTS."

“Everyone is very excited for this to happen and Chris really wants to make all of his appearances very memorable. Should be a very fun time.”

Whether that's true remains to be seen, but at least he's focused on music.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
