About 45 seconds into tonight's Dancing With the Stars, we start getting some results.

Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough and Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are called forward and told that one of them is in the bottom two. That couple is Erin and Maks; Nicole and Derek are safe.

The reprised dance of the evening is Team Gaga (with Chelsie subbing in for Pamela Anderson, who is injured).  It really is a fun performance. I might watch it a third time.

Next up is a performance by Train. My husband goes, "Maybe they can sing their song better than the house band did." One can hope. The first thing I said when it started was, "Why is Howie Mandel playing ukulele?" (It's not really him.) Some pros hit the floor to dance during the song. One of them is Mark Ballas, but I'm confused because when Shannen Doherty was kicked out, they said he was injured and would be out for at least six weeks. Has it been six weeks? Seems like he's doing OK. That's good news.

More results: Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke and Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya are called forward. Evan and Anna learn they are safe; Chad and Cheryl have to wait. 

Later, Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood and Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel are called forward. Niecy and Louis are safe; Pamela and Damian also have to wait.

Melissa Rycroft gives a silly behind-the-scenes look at some of the other jobs on the show, like production assistant, stage manager and more.

Tonight's Stars of Dance performance features dancers from the Cirque du Soleil "Viva Elvis" show. Lots of fun!

Then Train is back with "Drops of Jupiter."

Last of the results, at long last: The last safe couple is Chad and Cheryl, which leaves Pam and Damian in the bottom two with Erin and Maks. My cable cuts out for a second, and I freak out, but thankfully it comes back. That wouldn't have been good for any of us! The judges are shocked that Erin is in the bottom two.

The couple going home is Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood. From that bottom two, I'm not that surprised. Actually, overall, I'm not that surprised. She's been fun, I think, though I know that, at least here, she doesn't have a ton of fans.

In the exit interview, Tom reveals that they've been trying to get Pam on the show since season one, and they have been thrilled to have her on the show. She says it's been an amazing experience in her life and that that is saying a lot since she has had a great life.

What do you think about the results?
