It's the first results show on this season of Dancing With the Stars -- and the first one with a dance-off!

But first, it's Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, along with a swinging performance by some of the pros.

Samantha Harris interviews Steve-O about his injury -- he says he had a really bad idea for the end of the dance, and then he had an even worse idea and ended up in an ambulance. He also adds that Lacey told him not to do it -- which is nice since the judges chastised her about it last night.

Some results! Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska, Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas, Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough and David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson are safe.

After the break, more results! Denise Richards and Maks Chmerkovskiy, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, Lil Kim and Derek Hough and Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke are safe.

The Macy's Stars of Dance performance of the evening is by Michael Rooney and is in honor of Broadway. Michael is Mickey's son, and he's in the audience, looking like a proud papa. After the break, Jewel, who was originally supposed to compete on the show until she was injured, performs "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." New pros and So You Think You Can Dance alums Chelsie Hightower and Dmitry Chaplin perform while she sings, and it's all very lovely.

Then there is a time-filling montage of the stars talking about one another. Chuck Wicks' joke about whether it's bad that he calls Lil' Kim "Little Kim" would have been a lot fresher if Simon Cowell hadn't insisted on calling Lil Rounds "Little" an hour earlier.

Still. More. Results.: Belinda Carlisle and Jonathan Roberts, Lacey Schwimmer and Steve-O, Holly Madison and Dmitry Chaplin, Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower, Steve Wozniak and Karina Smirnoff await their fates. Holly and Dmitry are safe. So are Ty and Chelsie and Steve-O and Lacey. That leaves Belinda and Woz in the dance-off.

The two couples will redo one of their previous performances and get new scores, which will be combined with the previous scores and votes to figure out who will go home.

Belinda and Jonathan redance their salsa, and it starts out better than last night, and then she kind of falls apart halfway through. Len Goodman says she had better hip action, but she made some other mistakes. Bruno Tonioli says she lost her footwork, and it was a shame. Carrie Ann Inaba says her performance level was higher and more enjoyable at first. Scores: 5-6-6, for a 17/30, a point less than last night.

Steve and Karina repeat their quickstep. Bruno says he's not brilliant but is entertaining. Carrie Ann says they were better than last night except for a part in the middle. Len says it wasn't that much of an improvement, but they are fun. Scores: 6-5-6, for a 17/30. Bruno totally turns the blank side toward the camera, and they all laugh, which is made even funnier since they're always so serious during the Telling of the Scores.

And the first couple out is: Belinda and Jonathan. That's not entirely shocking. Steve W. has a lot of fans, and people are charmed by his performances. Belinda was a little cold somehow (though I think it was mostly nerves).

What do you think about the elimination?
