 We're still reeling from the ousting of Sabrina Bryan from Dancing with the Stars last night. And we're not alone.

"You know how much I love to talk and I'm at a loss for words," Julianne Hough said moments after Tuesday's live results show.

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

"It just goes to show you that no matter how good you think your favorite is, you still have to vote. Sabrina definitely shouldn't have gone home tonight."

Hear that, Cameron Mathison fans? Don't let this soap opera star fall into the bottom two again next week.

Jennie Garth, meanwhile, consoled Bryan's mother, who sobbed quietly while watching her daughter do an obligatory round of post-show interviews.

"I am baffled," Maksim Chmerkovskiy said. "I've said it before and I'll say it again: People should vote for DANCERS! This is the most ridiculous elimination night ever. As far as I'm concerned the bar just dropped."

Chmerkovskiy's partner, Melanie Brown. was also in disbelief: "Seriously, I think somebody should do a recount. This makes no sense."

The bad news for Sabrina Bryan? She was voted off Dancing with the Stars last night.

The good news? Maybe now she has more time to practice for High School Musical 3, as rumors have been swirling that she's replacing Vanessa Hudgens.

For now, though, fans of this reality competition are struggling to comprehend what happened on the results show last night. Sabrina is telling them it'll be okay, at least.

"I had such an amazing time with [partner Mark Ballas]. I cannot imagine any experience being able to remotely compare to this," Bryan said. "I'm not bitter. I've made some great friendships here and I've had the best time. This was an amazing opportunity for me and I feel so lucky to have gone this far."

Others weren't as upbeat.

"This is an outrage and an upset," Carrie Ann Inaba said, wiping tears away. "It's so disappointing and heartbreaking, not to mention complete shock. How do you explain Sabrina leaving? She's been at the top of the leader board from week one. Everyone assumed she'd be in the finale."

Maybe it was a lack of name recognition, although All My Children star Cameron Mathison joined Bryan in the bottom two.

In the end, we may never know what led to this tragedy. It's like trying to get inside the head of Lydia Hearst. How can we know what she sees in Cisco Adler?

The true contenders may have separated themselves from the pretenders on last night's Dancing with the Stars.

Spice Girl Melanie Brown, and her gorgeous partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, earned their first perfect score of the season with a low, romantic rumba.

Ricki Lake and Derek Hough

Former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jennie Garth was more than just a (very) pretty face, as well. Her and Derek Hough garnered a 27 from the judges, thrusting themselves into position as an underdog to win it all.

Marie Osmond and Jane Seymour, however? Less than stellar. See what we mean right now by following our link to a detailed Dancing with the Stars recap. Enjoy!

Thanks to People magazine for this backstage report on last night's Dancing with the Stars...

Mom's Still Standing: Stephen Craig said his mother, Marie Osmond, is okay. "She sometimes forgets to breathe when she's doing something," Craig said after the show."

Hines and Kym

Her asthma kicked in a little bit and this has happened before. But still, when you see your mom fall down on the stage - I instantly wanted to get over there and help her."

So did all of us, Stephen.

Dwindling Assets: He may be worth a few billion, but what Mark Cuban is most proud of is his losses: 34 pounds since late August. "My stomach!" marveled Cuban. "I've got abs now. Somebody came up to me and brushed up against my stomach and said, ‘Wow! What happened to you?' Forget Maksim Chmerkovskiy! He's almost 25 years younger than me. I'm 49-years-old and I feel great."

9021-Oh-My!: Jennie Garth shook "her fun stuff," Derek Hough told People. "I was in absolute awe tonight when she walked in with her dress on and all made up. I was like, ‘Wow, you look amazing.'"

And despite the shorter rehearsal time the couple had this week - one of Garth's kids "had to go to the emergency room. [Her daughter] fell and hit a table. It was pretty traumatic for Jennie this week," says Hough - their samba earned an admirable 25 points.

Jennie Garth fell a couple weeks ago during a Dancing with the Stars performance, but another contestant suffered through a scarier collapse last night on the show.

Marie Osmond simply passed out.

The event took place just as the celebrity and her dancing partner, Jonathon Roberts, were awaiting their scores in the Samba. Cameras cut to commercial and Osmond appeared okay after the break, saying "Once in a while it happens to me... I stop breathing. I'm so sorry."

She might wanna get that checked out.

The score awarded to Osmond and Roberts, meanwhile as a paltry 21. Who impressed the most during the evening? Sabrina Bryan was great, as usual, but Cameron Mathison is gaining momentum. He scored a 26.

The fourth week of Dancing with the Stars was perfect. Or at least one couple on the show was.

Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan and pro partner Mark Ballas earned the first 30 out of 30 from the judges for an impressive paso doble.

Bruno said she had power, attack, and stealth, referring to the singer as a little lynx on the prowl. Carrie Ann said she can tell that Bryan really wants this, adding that their performance was perfection. Len said his expectations are very high for Sabrina; he's always looking for things wrong with her performance, but tonight he didn't find any.

The other top performance of the night belonged for Cameron Mathison. The All My Children star danced to the Superman theme music, big "C" embossed on his attire and everything.

We were treated to a few talented routines on Dancing with the Stars last night, along with one inspiring one.

The usual suspects of Helio Castroneves and Sabrina Bryan wowed viewers, but it was veteran actress Jane Seymour that inspired the judges and audience.

Jaleel and Kym

Less than a week removed from the death of her mother, Seymour and partner Tony Dovolani put on their best routine to date.

Their Tango was passionate, sleek, and sophisticated. While the actress had been criticized for being overly prim and proper in her earlier performances, she really let loose during this one.

Bruno told Jane that she reminded him of a silent movie queen, adding that the dance contained drama, pathos and passion. Len praised her for getting the acting elements of the dance down, and said that her Tango "could have been on Pay-Per-View."

Carrie Ann got a bit choked up and told Jane that she created a special moment on the show and transformed her emotions into a gorgeous dance.

The final score? 27.

It may be early in the competition, but this year's Dancing with the Stars appears to be down to a race car driver and a Cheetah Girl.

For the second consecutive week, Helio Castroneves and Sabrina Bryan showcased their impressive moves on the dance floor.

Here's a recap of the former's mambo with partner Julianne Hough:

When the two of them took to the stage, it was almost like a different competition had begun. These two are dancing at a completely different speed - and it shows. It would be hyperbole to suggest that Helio is shaking it at the level of Julianne Hough, but he's close enough that it makes the pair stand out above all others.

The judges said: Bruno referred to themas the "exhilarating hot rod" and the "blond bombshell" and then praised Helio's technique. Carrie Ann called him the real deal, adding that he's suave and debonair. She may have a crush. Len said Helio went into overdrive, very very well done. Score: 27.
