It was meant to be a compliment. No, really.
This hoofer is kicking up his heels.
After winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars with Olympic gold medalist Meryl Davis earlier this year, Maksim Chmerkovskiy knew it was time to move on professionally, if not personally.
Even on a night that saw two perfect scores on Dancing with the Stars, someone still had to leave the ballroom for good.
Sadly, Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff began the night knowing they were in jeopardy. Based on scores from viewers and the judges last week, the duo became the third couple to leave the dance floor.
"It's been a great experience, putting myself out there and trying something new," said Couture.
Besides a roof-raising appearance by guest judge Kevin Hart, lots of other fun surprises happened underneath the mirror ball Monday. Here were the scores:
Janel Parrish is best known for playing Mona Vanderwaal on the TV drama Pretty Little Liars. She's been paired with pro Val Chmerkovskiy for season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be blogging for PEOPLE about her experience on the hit ABC show.
Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, having won the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The pro dancer is now in her 16th season on the show and will be blogging for PEOPLE about competing with actor and retired mixed martial arts fighter Randy Couture for season 19.
Tavis Smiley has a bone to pick with the producers of Dancing with the Stars.
He might be 76 – but Tommy Chong has proved he's definitely still got it.
The comedian gave Dancing with the Stars viewers – and professional partner Peta Murgatroyd – a thrill during their salsa performance Monday night when he tore open his hot pink shirt and offered a peek at his impressive-looking abs.
"When he rips [his shirt] like he's the Hulk – I love that," Murgatroyd told PEOPLE with a grin after the show while standing beside Chong.
The celebrities got to pick their tunes on Monday's edition of Dancing with the Stars, so the numbers were as varied as a bikini song samba to a Cyndi Lauper-inspired foxtrot.

It was a very interesting premiere night. I think a lot of couples were amazing, and you saw different characters and different personalities shine through.
Our performance went perfectly. We couldn't have asked for a better response. There's a certain side of Randy that I wanted to showcase in the dance and it came through, and the judges and the audiences recognized that. I couldn't have been happier.
