Get ready to par-TAY!

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars showcased party anthems, with guest judge Redfoo from LMFAO helping to weed out the ho-hum from the fun.

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd entered as the charmed couple after getting a perfect score on Disney week, while Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas were just holding on and Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke hoped that audience scores would prop them up for another week.

Except, that didn't happen.

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars kicked off with a selection of surprises.

Not only did contestants learn right at the beginning that there was a double elimination to take place during the show, but the leader board's lowest scorer Billy Dee Williams – whose face expressed fear of being sent home – was saved almost immediately, and went on to dance a 15-point tango with Emma Slater that judge Len Goodman said "didn't have enough attack."

Before getting to the unfortunate two who were forced to bid adieu, here's a recap of how the night went overall:

DWTS' Amy Purdy: Having Prosthetic Legs Has Its Advantages

Originally posted 03/18/2014 06:00PM

Losing her legs hasn't slowed down inspirational Dancing with the Stars season 18 contestant Amy Purdy, who amusingly points out the perks of competing for the mirror-ball trophy with prosthetic limbs.

"If [other contestants] break a leg they're out of the competition. But if I break a leg I'll just get a new one," she told PEOPLE Monday night at her DWTS debut.

The snowboarder, 34, who lost both legs below the knee at 19 following a life-threatening bout of bacterial meningitis, stunned the judges with her masterful cha-cha, which the jet-lagged athlete delivered just three days after winning the bronze medal at the Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Amy Purdy Trains During Paralympics for DWTS with Derek Hough

Being on Dancing with the Stars was the furthest thing from snowboarder Amy Purdy's mind several months ago. Thoughts of dancing on television's most popular ballroom floor took a back seat to training and competing.

But then Purdy, 34, thought, 'Why not?' It's that type of attitude, after all, that helped the double amputee become a world champion in her sport and an inspiration to many.

"It's been so crazy," Purdy tells PEOPLE of the past three weeks training for DWTS with partner Derek Hough and training for the Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Before she sets her sights on the ballroom's famed mirror ball trophy, Purdy is going for gold on Friday in the boardercross competition.
