Leah Remini has been eliminated from the ballroom. "I have to thank Tony," Remini said of her partner. "I have to thank everyone here, especially Tony."

"This was an incredible experience and if every season will be like this, I'll live a long life," Dovolani said, despite the obvious disappointment.

Bill Engvall was spared, amazingly, once again last night.

Here's a rundown of the scores from last night's show:

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is returning to the Dancing with the Stars ballroom as a guest judge for Monday's semifinals, according to reports.

Yes, he will be handing out the scores instead of complaining about them.

The DWTS pro will be three alongside regular judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli for the show's first-ever "plugged / unplugged" night.

Chmerkovskiy, who appeared on Broadway in "Forever Tango" and heads up six dance studios in the New York area, was long a fixture on DWTS.

He said he was always open to returning one day, so it was not a bitter parting of ways. "I never walked away, or said 'I'm never coming back,'" he said.

Elizabeth Berkley was robbed on the Dancing With the Stars results show last night. Like Christina Milian and Snooki before her, only much worse.

So it goes. Fair or not, only five celebrities remain, and it looks like Corbin Bleu is in the driver's seat after a routine last night that was one of the best ever.

Corbin looked like the professional, particularly in the trio dance. The judges compared him to Bob Fosse, which may be excessive, but tells you a lot.

Take a look at his routine that earned the perfect score of 30:

He did have dancing experience prior to Dancing With the Stars, of course, but so did Berkley and you can see how far that got her. Votes are votes.

Bleu will likely get them. Amber Riley should as well. That means, somehow, that Leah Remini, Bill Engvall or Jack Osbourne will make the finals.

So it goes. While it's too bad Elizabeth, Christina and Snook aren't around to vie for the Mirror Ball and showcase their talents, vote in our poll:

Who do you think should win DWTS Season 17?

After the last several Dancing With the Stars results shows have ended on a surprising notes this week had to fall in line with expectations ... right?

The ninth week of competition saw the six remaining celebs and their professional partners dancing for once again survival, with two routines apiece.

Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff, Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke, Amber Riley and Derek Hough, and Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani were declared safe.

That meant Elizabeth Berkley and Val Chmerkovskiy, and Bill Engvall and Emma Slater were in jeopardy. Bill and Emma prepared for the inevitable.

As Emma wiped the tears away ... Elizabeth and Val were eliminated!

The crowd cheered as the judges shook their heads at the result.

Yes, Berkley joins Snooki and Christina Milian as celebrities ousted far too soon, only this may go down as the biggest shocker in show history.

Brooke Burke-Charvet was almost speechless before asking Elizabeth how she was feeling. The judges even called her THE TOP dancer this fall.

Here's a rundown of the scores from last night's show:

After the last two Dancing With the Stars results shows ended with major elimination shocker, this week had to fall more in line with expectations ... right?

The eighth week of competition saw the seven remaining celebs and their professional partners dancing their hearts out for survival. So who was in jeopardy?

At the bottom of the heap this week - or at least in the red light of doom - were Brant Daugherty and Peta Murgatroyd and Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke.

Yes, Bill Engvall survived again. The celeb going home on DWTS is ...

Brant Daugherty. Arguably the least-known celebrity before the season started, Brant now joins Snooki and Christina Milian as stars who left too soon.

He was fun to watch, with plenty of charisma to go around, but was mired in the middle of the pack without a breakout week or that strong emotional pull.

Brant’s been stuck where he has the star power but not the refinement, the judges said, yet he still had one of the better scores on last night's show:

After escaping judgment last week, the fat lady sang on the Dancing with the Stars results show last night - and one pint-sized lady paid the price.

And when it came down to it, a sultry samba wasn't enough to save Jersey Shore star Snooki, despite the fact that she earned a 27 with Sasha Farber.

She outscored the other celeb in peril, Bill Engvall, as well as Leah Remini. But like the previous Dancing With the Stars results show, it didn't matter.

"I'm sad, this sucks. I love everybody," she said, the pain of elimination still raw. "I definitely wasn't ready to leave ... This whole experience was amazing."

The reality star had nothing but positive things to say about the show, however, and certainly succeeded in showing America a different side of her.

After last week's Dancing With the Stars results show ended with no elimination, this week definitely sent someone packing - and not who you might think.

The seventh week brought salsas, jives and dancing for survival along the eight remaining celebrities and their pro partners. So who was in jeopardy?

At the bottom of the overall score and vote totals were Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Sasha Farber, along with lowest scoring Bill Engvall and Emma Slater.

The celeb going home on DWTS is ...

Snooki! WTF!?

"I cant even talk right now," Polizzi said, fighting back tears after her elimination was announced to a stunned ballroom. "I love everybody here, so it sucks."

Indeed. Like other stunning exists before her, Snooki had actually done a great job - this week and in previous weeks - on merit, and the scores showed it.

Here's a look at last night's DWTS scoreboard:

After last week's shocking Dancing With the Stars elimination, we reached the halfway point in Season 17 tonight. Would another shocker come with it?

Week 6 brought a new challenge to the eight celebs in a "Switch Up" improv dance in which the music is randomly switched up for extra points.

Leah Remini was the low scorer last week, after the Dancing With the Stars results show that saw Christina Milian ousted. Would she survive this week?

She was! Along with everyone else!

Tom Bergeron explained that incorrect phone numbers were shown on the air last week, "so in fairness" the votes were thrown out and all were safe.

Okay then! Didn't see that one coming.

Bill Engvall was at the bottom when the dance competitions ended, and it came down to the comedian and Jack Osbourne, but then all got a reprieve.

Christina Milian and Mark Ballas' elimination on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show was one of the most shocking in the show's 17 seasons.

They had had excellent reasons to believe they were safe, having just received the first 10 of the season for their cha-cha and an overall score of 28.

That was good enough for a tie for first - not last, but first - but fan votes were so far out of line with the scores that the two were ousted at night's end.

Ballas didn’t do the press line after getting booted from the ballroom, but Milian spoke to the media after the live broadcast about her surprise expulsion:

“I was shocked, for sure. I’m not saying it should have been anybody else, but to be honest, after having a great performance you feel a bit more confident.”

Maybe last week's brouhaha between Julianne Hough and Mark Ballas, in which she said he outshines his partners, played a role in the results?

After a fifth week of sassy live performances on ABC, the Dancing With the Stars results are in for the fourth Monday night elimination of Season 17.

So who's packing their bags this time around? Let's find out, shall we?

Dancing With the Stars Cast Pic Season 17

Combining both scores from Monday's episode and public votes from last week, the Dancing With the Stars results show is harder to predict than ever.

With Bill Nye and Valerie Harper out, Bill Engvall was on the block.

Well behind his competitors last week, it would take a strong effort for the comedian to get back in this. Ditto Brant Daugherty, who was also back of the back.

Where they able to do it? Or did another contestant surprisingly end up on the outs? Follow the jump for this week's Dancing With the Stars results ...
