On the fifth Dancing with the Stars results show, hosts Tom Bergeron
and Samatha Harris reminded viewers of Marie Osmond’s dramatic fall to
the floor on the top eight couples performance show. Additional
footage was shown of Marie Osmond getting back up after she fainted.
The judges selected Melanie Brown & Maksim Chmerkovskiy to dance an
encore of their Samba.
Special guest Jennifer Lopez performed “Do It Well” from her album “Brave.” Bergeron and Harris revealed that the first two couples that were definitely safe were Sabrina Bryan & Mark Ballas and Melanie Brown & Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
In a backstage segment, Samantha Harris asked Marie Osmond about her fainting. Marie said “I’m fine. I don’t really know exactly what happened. I think the air quality here and I have a lot of allergies, but you know I want to thank everybody for all the thousands of emails.”
Christian Perry and his professional dancers performed a Rock N’ Roll choreography to “Dance, Dance.” Jennifer Lopez returned to perform “Let’s Get Loud.” Bergeron revealed that the next couple that was safe was Cameron Mathison & Edyta Sliwinska.
Bergeron and Harris revealed that Jennie Garth & Derek Hough were safe and that Mark Cuban & Kym Johnson were in the bottom two. Bergeron and Harris also revealed that Marie Osmond & Jonathan Roberts and Helio Castroneves & Julianne Hough were safe, which meant that Jane Seymour & Tony Dovolani were the other couple in the bottom two.
Bergeron announced that the couple eliminated from the competition was Mark Cuban & Kym Johnson. Cuban revealed that he had lost thirty some pounds during the show. When asked what he had gained from the show, Cuban said “I’ve gained so many new friends. I’ve gained such an appreciation for the effort that everybody puts in, and you know what, it’s just been such an amazing, amazing experience. I wouldn’t have traded it for the world.”
