"This is shaping up to be an interesting semi-final," Tom Bergeron said of the four couples headed to the next phase of the competition.
Of the unlucky star going home Tuesday night, Bergeron noted that the standing ovation from the in-studio audience for the exiting duo was "well-deserved."
Monday night's feud between Carrie Ann Inaba and Maks Chmerkovskiy continued, with Chmerkovskiy sniping "let's do our jobs, I'm trying to do mine" and Inaba telling the pro to "let it go."
Did Chmerkovskiy's temper doom him and partner Brandy? Was this the week bottom of the leaderboard regular Bristol Palin's luck ran out?

Although his "instant" dance brought out a whole new sexy side of Kurt Warner, the NFL star's competitive dancing days came to an end Tuesday night.
Before his elimination, Warner shrugged off the judges' scoring. "I know on this show I'm not going to be the best dancer, so my goal is to entertain the audience and to entertain those people at home, so it feels good when you have the crowd behind you."
Bruno Tonioli called Warner "a real gentleman" and a "true sportsman."
On being booted, Warner said, "I learned a long time ago that life isn't always about winning and losing competitions. It's about relationships, it's about impacting people. I thank everybody at 'Dancing With the Stars' because they gave me an opportunity to impact people and build relationships and that's really what it's all about."
He thanked his wife, his "seven wonderful kids at home" and his "wonderful" partner, Anna Trebunskaya.
Maks and Brandy were the other couple in jeopardy, although they tied with Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough at the top of the leaderboard this week. At the bottom, as usual, was Bristol Palin, whose fans keep putting her through to the next round.
Musicians John Legend and Taio Cruz performed and Lacey Schwimmer and Kyle Massey reprised their instant jive at the judges' request.
