A staple in the Dancing with the Stars franchise, "Eras Night" returned Monday, and the stars danced routines inspired by a specific decade. The favorites (Nastia Liukin, Rumer Willis, Riker Lynch and Willow Shields) continued to please the judges, but who won immunity this week – and who was (shockingly!) sent home?

Derek Hough demonstrated during Monday's episode of Dancing with the Stars that he won't let an injury slow him down – he's just not quite ready to get back on his feet yet.
After performing a number (while sitting!) with his partner Nastia Liukin and fill-in pro Sasha Farber, Hough was back taking it easy after he broke a toe on his right foot and severely sprained his left ankle last week.
"We don't know yet [if he can dance again] so we are taking it week to week," Liukin told PEOPLE after Monday's show. "Derek will stay in L.A. because he needs to be here for therapy, so all of three of us will be in rehearsal."

Say it ain't so, Derek Hough!
Dancing with the Stars' popular five-time Mirrorball Trophy winner may have to sit out the rest of the season after injuring his foot during a rehearsal Monday, PEOPLE has learned.
"Derek Hough suffered injuries to his right foot and left ankle," his spokeswoman told PEOPLE. "He has been diagnosed with a broken toe on his right foot and sprains to his left ankle on both the inside and outside aspects and a bone bruise on the same ankle. Derek will remain in Los Angeles this week to rehab his injuries."

While Dancing with the Stars' "Spring Break Night" had some skin-baring outfits, unlike many coeds' wild getaways, it was memorable.
Front-runners like Riker Lynch, Nastia Liukin and Rumer Willis continued to pull ahead, but not all of the competition did so hot individually. Lucky for the underdogs, there's strength in numbers, and this week's group performances gave everyone a boost.

While an obvious plug to the show's parent company, Disney Night made for some of the most inventive routines yet – not to mention some of the most creative costumes yet (Prince Farming in a skirt! Rumer Willis in full-on purple body paint!).
Paying homage to Disney favorites both new and old, the stars channeled their favorite characters while animated support "joined them," appearing on-screen at home. A cute idea in theory, it usually just took attention away from the performance or was so fleeting it was easy to be forgotten.
The night got a slow start, but the final three stars of the night – Rumer, Riker Lynch and Nastia Liukin – hit the ballroom floor with sets to remember. Elsewhere, opener Suzanne Somers and Robert Herjavec, uh, Floundered.
Read on for the highlights of Dancing with the Stars' Disney Night.

"It's been weird in the past," Derek Hough admitted to PEOPLE. "I started dancing because I wanted to be around girls. My parents were like, 'Why don't you dance with your sister?' I was like, 'No, you're defeating the entire purpose of why I'm dancing!' "

You'd be forgiven for thinking Derek Hough's Instagram post was a teaser for a new sci-fi epic. You'd also be forgiven for looking at his abs.

Routines themed around the Stars' most memorable years made for good video packages but not-so-inspired dances. I mean, how do you adequately pay homage to an IED attack?
Judge Len Goodman certainly wasn't in the mood for sob stories: the ol' boy was grumpy all night and didn't seem to like anybody, least of all Rumer Willis, who performed a brilliant waltz as a snub to all her early haters.
Then again, anybody can have a bad night in the ballroom. Witness: Michael Sam and Riker Lynch, who both found themselves in jeopardy by the end of Monday's episode.
Before you learn the guys' fate, check out a sampling of the performances from a night of memories (as well as a few moments we'd love to forget).

When Derek Hough was young, he started dancing for the same reason many boys do anything at all: to get girls.
As the DWTS pro reveals in PEOPLE's 10 Years of Dancing with the Stars Collector's Edition – available in stores, online or by download – that initial motivation to dance definitely made it "super awkward" for him to dance with his sister, Julianne.
In the following excerpt from 10 Years of Dancing with the Stars, read on to find out how Derek and Julianne moved past the awkwardness and how the super competitive brother-sister duo made it up as they went along on DWTS's very first season 10 long years ago.
