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.

Drew Carey Rates His 'Talent and Confidence' a 6 on DWTS

Originally posted 04/14/2014 05:00PM

[BRIGHTCOVE_PTV "3457058800001"] After a breakout performance by Drew Carey on Dancing with the Stars, the host of The Price Is Right now says Disney week is going to be "really extra tough."

He's dancing the quickstep Monday with partner Cheryl Burke, and despite an encouraging 33-point score in partner-switchup week, he worries about his footwork – and everything else.

"I'm a 6 on a confidence and talent level," he told PEOPLE jokingly during a break in rehearsals Thursday.

Drew Carey 'Felt All Along' That Monday's DWTS Routine Would Be His 'Breakout'

Originally posted 04/08/2014 02:00PM

There's no dancing around it – Drew Carey is an improved ballroom performer.

The comedian, 55, who danced a 33-points-out-of-40 routine with Witney Carson during partner change-ups week on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, had a hunch this would be the one where he'd show how he's improved.

"I felt all along throughout rehearsal that this could be a breakout performance," Carey told PEOPLE backstage after his number, which earned him three points higher than the previous week's dance with regular partner Cheryl Burke. "I think a lot of time comics get a short shift on the show. They don't think comics can dance, and I want to disprove all that."

So, just what was it that made Carey so certain he'd wow the judges this week?

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:

Charlie White & Meryl Davis Will Face Off on Dancing with the Stars

Originally posted 03/04/2014 08:25AM

From former child stars to young musicians, the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars is filled with an eclectic mix of competitors. But the most interesting may be the casting of Meryl Davis and Charlie White.

Davis, 27, and White, 26, ruled the rink at last month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, winning the gold medal in ice dancing. Now they'll battle in the ballroom – but against each other for the mirror ball trophy. White will dance with Sharna Burgess, while Davis will shimmy with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin's brother, who is back after taking last season off.

The 12 new contestants on ABC's hit show were announced Tuesday morning on Good Morning America.

See the rest of the competitors below:

For newly slim, Drew Carey losing weight was a heavy decision.

"I always thought I was going to die before I was 60," the comedian, 52, tells Parade Magazine this week. "My father died of a heart attack in his 40s. I'm not an idiot. The writing was on the wall."

Not wanting to fall victim to the heart disease that runs in his family, the Price Is Right host traded his "daily hamburger" for a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition, daily exercise and willpower.

Dropping more then 70 lbs. since November, Carey now weighs in at 182 and is still working towards his goal – weighing 170 lbs. by Oct. 31.
