'Dancing With the Stars' results: Who is out?

On tonight's Dancing With the Stars, the Top 5 will be trimmed to the Top 4.

There's also going to be a dance-off between University of California, San Diego and Purdue University.

After a recap of last night's show (in which head judge Len Goodman called Chad Ochocinco and Niecy Nash "pretenders"), we get to see Nicole and Derek's 50s-inspired paso doble again.

The Gipsy Kings come out to perform "You've Got a Friend in Me," from the forthcoming Toy Story 3. They are accompanied by some pros performing a dance choreographed by Cheryl Burke and Tony Dovolani that was used in the film.

Dance Center. That's all I'm saying about that.

Results, aka the reason we are here: Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough are safe. Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke are in the bottom two for the first time. 

Then it's time for the aforementioned college dance championship: The UCSD team goes first with a team samba. Len loved their pattern changes, but thinks their lines were not fantastic. Bruno Tonioli agrees. Carrie Ann Inaba agrees about the formations, but thinks some of it was so clean, it lost the feeling of the dance. They get an 8-8-8 for a 24/30.

Next up is Purdue, with the mambo. Bruno says they were definitely shaking it out there, but they had some issues with their changing of shapes and patterns. Carrie Ann thinks they are great performers and captured the spirit, but they needed more changing. Len repeats what the others say. They get an 8-7-7, for a 22/30.

The Gipsy Kings return to the stage to perform "Bandoleros." 

More Dance Center.

Results: Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya are safe. After a break (of course), the rest. Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are safe; Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel are in the bottom two with Chad and Cheryl. The ousted couple is Niecy and Louis.

Aww, shucks. I love her, and she's added so much humor and fun to this season. But I'm not that surprised. She says she has had a fantastic time living out her dream.

What do you think of the results?
