Tonight’s episode of Dancing With The Stars kicks off tonight with out hosts, Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews – it’s first results night. Judge Len Goodman raves that he has been “so impressed” with this season’s cast. He jokes, “You know it is getting serious when Maks shaves off his beard.”

Before we get to any results, we get to see a behind the scenes clip of James and Sharna’s performances for Week 1 and Week 2. It looks like Sharna has one of the best partners this season that she has had yet. Up next is a look back at Calvin Johnson and Lindsay’s Week 1 and Week 2 dances.

James is a little frustrated after his and Sharna’s dance last week – Erin Andrews reassures James that he did just fine, and jokes that he has all of the Canadian votes. Everyone is definitely on edge as we wait for the results to start rolling in.

Now it is time to take a look back at Amber and Maks’s dances during Week 1 and Week 2. For both weeks Maks and Amber received ‘s across the board from all four judges. They’re not doing too poorly, but there is definitely room for improvement. Terra and Sasha on the other hand, have been improving by leaps and bounds and are currently in third place. Erin Andrews share some backstage footage of Terra and Sasha, it’s hilarious, during rehearsal terra and Sasha have been playing practical jokes on each other – they are certainly a perfect pair.

Rick Perry and Emma have not been doing too stellar so far this season, but Rick is certainly having a blast dancing and doesn’t seem to mind his low scores. For Week 1 Rick scored 20 points. Week 2 wasn’t much better, and Rick and Emma received 22/40. Brady Bunch star Maureen and her partner Artem also got off to a rocky start this season – after Week 1 and Week 2, Maureen and Artem are currently in 9th place.

Up next is a look back at Marilu Henner and Derek Hough’s Week 1 and Week 2 dances – Marilu and Derek are currently killing the Dancing With The stars’ competition. After Week 1 and Week 2 dances, Derek and Marilu have a total of 56 points and are currently in 3rd place. Jake T. Austin, of Wizards of Waverly Place and his partner Jenna are off to a shaky start this season, they have a combined total of 46 points after Week 1 and Week 2 and they are currently in 12th place.

While Vanilla Ice tries to teach the DWTS cast how to do his signature “V” hand sign, which Rick Perry has officially mastered, we get to see a flashback of Babyface and Allison’s Week 1 and Week 2 scores. They are currently in 3rd place and at the front of the pack with 5 points. Country singer Jana Kramer and her pro partner Gleb are giving Babyface and Allison a run for their money – they are also tied for 3rd place with 56 points. Everyone has been buzzing about Jana’s hunky partner Gleb, so after we review their dances, Erin Andrews shows some pretty steamy footage of Gleb posing in an underwear ad – of course, the crowd goes crazy.

Vanilla Ice might not be one of the best dancers this season, but he is certainly one of the most popular performers this season. Vanilla Ice and Witney Carson are currently in 8th place with 51 points. The former rapper has been pretty hard on himself every time he makes a mistake, but Witney has been keeping his motivated.

Ryan Lochte, Olympic gold-medal swimmer, has had a pretty eventful Week 1 and Week 2 on dancing With The Stars. We get to see another crazy clip from when protestors stormed the stage. Ryan’s fellow gymnast Laurie Hernandez on the other hand, is doing awesome, she and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy are currently in first place with 5 points.

Before we get to the results and learn who is safe this week – it’s time for an awesome featuring the Dancing With The Stars pros.

Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews take the stage to get to the live results. The first couples that are safe this week are Laurie and Val and Rick and Emma. Before we hear any more results, we get to see a beautiful montage of this season’s Dancing With The Stars guys – they all share their own personal reasons and motivations for joining the show this year.

Now, it’s time for some more results. According to America’s votes and the DWTS judges’ scores, Marilu Henner and Derek Hough are safe, so are Babyface and Allison. However, sad news for Maureen and Artem and Ryan Lochte and Cheryl are the first couples in jeopardy of being eliminated tonight.

Before we get to hear any more results, it’s time to take a break for a live performance of “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” by Charlie Puth. Of course, he gets some help from the pro dancers, Cheryl and Val.

After Charlie’s performance, we get to see some more backstage clips from last night’s performances – and then it is time for some more live results. As of right now – Maureen and Ryan are currently in danger of being eliminated. Tom announces that Calvin and Lindsay and Vanilla Ice and Witney are safe, and so are James and Sharna. Jake T. Austin and Jenna are joining Maureen and Ryan in jeopardy and could be eliminated tonight.

This season of Dancing With The stars marked the return of THREE popular pro dancers – Derek Hough, Maks Chmerkovskiy, and Cheryl Burke.
