First, the pairs had to perform in an improvisational switch-up challenge, which required them to show off their ability to transition seamlessly while dancing to music that suddenly changed.
Then, at elimination time, there was an even bigger twist that one no one – not even producers – had seen coming.

She came to inspire and enjoy the party.
And into week four of Dancing with the Stars Valerie Harper did just that and much more, sending a message of hope by savoring life after she was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.
But on Monday night, sentiment finally yielded to the cold criteria of judging. After another low-scoring performance – this time an 18-point waltz – the 74-year-old star of TV's Rhoda was voted off the show.

These couples have dancing fever!
Jack Osbourne and wife Lisa hit up Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood Monday night after the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars for a fun night on the town.
Inside the venue, the two "were in good spirits," an onlooker told PEOPLE. Clad in a flannel shirt, Osbourne, 27, and his wife, 26, held court all night at a table near the entrance but refrained from drinking.
While Lisa hung out with her husband's pro partner (and the night's host) Cheryl Burke for a bit, the couple also "had a little bit of lovey-dovey time whispering in each other's ears and sharing laughs" later in the night, adds the source.

Dancing with the Stars brought out some unexpected stunners – and a standing ovation that drew tears – on Monday night's season 17 premiere.
Although early favorite Corbin Bleu wowed the crowd as predicted with a 24-point contemporary dance with partner Karina Smirnoff, it was Amber Riley, 27, who landed the near-perfect score.
Earning three nines, Riley's dance with Derek Hough had Bruno Tolioni calling the Glee actress the "tigress of season 17." Fellow judge Len Goodman said excitedly, "I'm palpitating, perspirating and flatulating."

Leah Remini appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday and revealed she's been having a difficult time since leaving the Church of Scientology in July.
"I hear it's different than leaving another religion, are you okay?" DeGeneres asked her.
Taking a big sip from her coffee cup, Remini, 43, paused before replying, "I'm okay. It's hard. We've lost friends that can no longer talk to us who are still in the organization."

After a couple of underwhelming seasons, Dancing with the Stars has found its rhythm again.
From Valerie Harper to Snooki to Jack Osbourne – all named Wednesday as contestants – the ABC show rebounds with one of the strongest lineups in years competing in the 17th season beginning Sept. 16.
Harper, whose brain cancer is close to remission, and her pro partner Tristan MacManus will square off against former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson and Sharna Burgess, actress Leah Remini – who recently made headlines with her split from Scientology – and pro Tony Dovolani, and reality star Osbourne and Cheryl Burke.

Leah Remini, who left the Church of Scientology last month, took her concerns about the wife of the controversial religion's leader to the police.
A source confirms to PEOPLE that Remini filed a missing persons report for the wife of David Miscavige.
The wife of the Scientology leader has reportedly not been seen in public in six years. But cops say Remini's claim is "unfounded" and they reportedly saw her themselves.

Leah Remini may have split from Scientology earlier this month, but she's not suddenly on her own.
"We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we're about," the former King of Queens star, 43, told PEOPLE on Saturday at the 15th annual DesignCare event in Malibu.
Remini, who tangled with the church, added, "I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That for me, that's what I'm about. It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to."

Leam Remini is known for being outspoken (after all, she is Brooklyn-born) but she took gutsiness to a new level last week when it was announced July 11 that she was leaving Scientology, the church where she's been a very visible member for more than three decades.
"I wish to share my sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming positive response I have received from the media, my colleagues and fans," Remini, 43, said in a carefully worded statement the next day.
What Remini didn't say was that she'd tangled with the Church, and questioned its leader David Miscavige. As a result, according to several sources close to the actress, she was required to go through extensive "security checks," a practice of intensive personal questioning.

The niece of the most powerful man in the Church of Scientology is speaking out in support of Leah Remini's decision to leave the church.
"From what I understand, she was just fed up with the way she was being treated when she was following church policy," says Jenna Miscavige Hill, who left the church herself in 2005. "She is a tough woman and isn't the type to yield or turn a blind eye to a blatant injustice. People like that don't last too long in Scientology because they aren't easy to control."
Miscavige Hill, who wrote an explosive memoir, Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape (published by Harper Collins in February) is very familiar with the dangers of criticizing the church.
