Dancing with the Stars: Melissa Gilbert, Roshon Fegan Booted in Double Elimination

Originally posted 05/08/2012 10:10PM

There were some serious shakeups on the Dancing with the Stars leader board after the remaining six couples in the competition each completed two dances on Monday night.

One week after scoring a perfect 30, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough made a surprising appearance in second-to-last place. Meanwhile, Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower – who danced for their lives last week – climbed to second. But with only six points separating William Levy and Cheryl Burke in first place and Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy in last, it's really anyone's game.

At the end of Tuesday night's double elimination episode, which two couples were sent packing and which four will go on to next week's semi-finals? Read on to find out ...

Dancing with the Stars: Who Deserves to Go?

There are six couples remaining on Dancing with the Stars – but not for long!

After Tuesday's elimination show (9 p.m. ET), only four semi-finalists will remain. Those odds aren't great but high-scoring couples like William Levy and Cheryl Burke, who delivered a perfect foxtrot on Monday, have a better chance.

Then again, low scores aren't necessarily an indication of elimination. Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were at the bottom of the leaderboard last week but escaped the bottom two and the dreaded dance duel.

Dancing with the Stars: William Levy, Cheryl Burke Perform Perfect Foxtrot

Originally posted 05/07/2012 10:45PM

The semi-finals are just a week away on Dancing with the Stars. But to get there, the six remaining couples had to perform two dances each on Monday night – and will have to survive a double elimination on Tuesday. (Spoilers ahead!)

In the first round of competition, William Levy and Cheryl Burke landed atop the leader board with a high-energy foxtrot that earned a perfect score. "You bring these performances to life," Carrie Ann Inaba told the couple. "There was care in technique and flare in the movement," added Len Goodman.

In a close second were Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower, who barely survived last week's dance duel. Their foxtrot earned 29 points and had Bruno Tonioli gushing. "The sweetest of sweethearts," he called them. "What you've done in a week is incredible."

When it comes to basketball, it's not just a game for Maria Menounos.

"I'm such a die-hard fan," the Dancing with the Stars contestant, who recently earned a perfect score, told PEOPLE. "I get violent when I watch Celtics games."

The Boston-area native's love of her hometown sports teams is well-documented, having recently donned a bikini in New York Giants colors after losing a Super Bowl bet on her beloved New England Patriots.

Maria Menounos Calls Perfect Dancing Score 'Most Incredible Feeling'

Originally posted 05/01/2012 11:55AM



For Maria Menounos and pro partner Derek Hough, it's a tooth (more like fang) and nail fight for the mirror-ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars.

But after their perfect-30 point finish Monday night, the Extra host, who started the season off injured, wasn't talking about winning.

"It's one of those moments in life you're going to be like, 'Wow, where I came from and where I've gotten to and everything I've gone through to get here,' " she told PEOPLE after the pair's victorious vampire-themed paso doble. "It's the most incredible feeling in the world."

William Levy & Cheryl Burke Won't Kiss on Dancing with the Stars

Originally posted 04/17/2012 02:30PM

Based on the wild cheers inside the ballroom, Cheryl Burke and her injured partner William Levy gave viewers what they wanted on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars. But don't expect the pair to take things a step further with a mid-routine smooch like the one Derek Hough and partner Maria Menounos shared on the Latin-themed episode.

"We like to leave it up to the imagination," Burke, 27, told PEOPLE backstage after the performances, adding that she and Levy have no plans to kiss.

But unlike judge Carrie Ann Inaba, Levy, 31, and Burke don't worry about whether an actual lip-lock was too much for the dance.

After Sherri Shepherd's shocking elimination on Dancing with the Stars last week, the remaining contestants felt the pressure and turned up the heat for Latin Night in the ballroom on Monday.

Taking on the salsa, samba and the Argentine tango, nine couples performed hip-shaking routines that were in some cases downright steamy.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough performed one of the night's sexiest routines, sealing their salsa with a controversial kiss. "That was hot," Carrie Ann Inaba said, but "I don't think you needed the kiss ... Dance is about the illusion of passion."
