On the second Dancing With The Stars 5 results show, hosts Tom Bergeron
and Drew Lachey kicked things off with a recap of the top eleven
couples performance show. The judges selected Helio Castroneves &
Julianne Hough to dance an encore of their Mambo.
Tom Bergeron revealed that Jane Seymour was not on the show tonight because her mother passed away and she returned to England to be with her family. Bergeron added that after the viewers’ vote and the judges’ scores were combined that Jane Seymour & Tony Dovolani were safe and that Jane was going to remain in the competition in honor of her mother’s memory.
Bergeron revealed that Helio Castroneves & Julianne Hough were also safe from elimination. Latifah made a special guest appearance to perform "I’m Gonna Live Till I Die.” On behalf of the entire cast and crew, Wayne Newton said “Jane, we want you to know how very much we love you. We’re keeping you in our hearts and our prayers, and we all embrace you.”
Bergeron and Lachey revealed that Melanie Brown & Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Sabrina Bryan & Mark Ballas were safe. In a comedy skit, Jimmy Kimmel revealed that all the Dancing With The Stars votes were counted by The Count from Sesame Street. Bergeron announced that Mark Cuban & Kym Johnson were the next couple continuing in the competition.
Queen Latifah returned to perform “California Dreamin.” Bergeron revealed that Marie Osmond & Jonathan Roberts and Floyd Mayweather & Karina Smirnoff were the next two couples definitely continuing in the competition.
After a commercial break, Bergeron revealed that Jennie Garth & Derek Hough and Cameron Mathison & Edyta Sliwinska were safe. Wayne Newton & Cheryl Burke and Albert Reed & Anna Trebunskaya were the bottom two couples. Bergeron announced that Albert Reed & Anna Trebunskaya had the lowest combined viewers’ vote and judges’ score and were eliminated from the competition. Albert Reed said “I’m a little stunned, but we did the best we could. It’s all you can ask for.”
