Which Pro Is Preparing to Leave Dancing with the Stars?

The Dancing with the Stars ballroom may lose some serious sparkle at the end of Season 19.

The contract for Cheryl Burke, the first female pro to win two consecutive mirror ball trophies in seasons 2 and 3, is up at the end of this season, and it's not looking likely that she'll return to the dance floor next spring.

"It's so so hard for me to talk about because I have been part of this family for the last decade," Burke told PEOPLE.

"You've seen me grow up on TV, doing what I love in front of millions of people. But I also feel the need to expand and challenge myself and do other things – not that this isn't a challenge. It completely is!"

Originally posted 03/24/2014 10:25PM

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:
