Kirstie Alley and Gilles Marini Voted Off "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" in Week 8

ABC/ADAM TAYLOR(LOS ANGELES) -- Gilles Marini and Kirstie Alley were both booted from Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars Tuesday night in the eighth week of the competition, just one week shy of the semifinals.

Alley’s departure was announced midway through the hour-long show. The actress smiled when her name was announced. She said it had been an honor to have been asked to compete a second time on the show.

“I learned more about dancing, believe it or not,” she said. She thanked her professional dance partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy: “He’s so patient with me and he’s so helpful to me and I just love dancing....”

She also thanked her fans and the show’s three judges for their feedback.

Marini, the actor who was in the middle of a close pack Monday night, was fiercely competitive throughout the season and was a consistent high scorer. He failed to capture a perfect score of 30 but did come within a half-point of his goal.

He learned he was going home at the end of the show, and he called his second turn on the competition “an incredible experience.”

“I tried my very best,” he said, adding that Peta Murgatroyd, his professional dance partner, was “an angel out there, teaching me amazing things.”

He also thanked his wife for her support, and acknowledged that his participation on the show had been a challenge for his family.

Generally, one star is sent home each Tuesday on the results show, but because there was no show — and therefore no elimination — on Election Day, two stars were voted off Tuesday night.

Elimination is based on a combination of judges’ scores plus audience votes.

Tuesday's show featured live performances from Kylie Minogue, Ne-Yo and the cast of the Broadway musical Newsies.
 
Returning next week to perform in the semifinals are Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno, actress Kelly Monaco, NFL legend Emmitt Smith, Olympian Shawn Johnson and TV personality Melissa Rycroft.

They will be dancing to styles and themes that they picked for each other Tuesday night. Their choices were: Surfer Flamenco, Knight Rider Bhangra, Big Top Jazz, Mad Monk Merengue, Espionage Lindy Hop and Caveman Hustle.

"Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars": Melissa Rycroft Tops Leader Board 

ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- On Monday night’s installment of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars, the seven remaining celebrity dancers had to fuse two different styles of dance to the same piece of music.  They followed that up with a swing dance marathon where the last couple dancing earned an extra 10 points on top of their night’s score.

At the end of the show, TV personality Melissa Rycroft topped the leader board with an overall total of 39 points, while actress Kirstie Alley brought up the rear with 28 points.

Olympian Shawn Johnson earned a perfect score for her fusion dance, and with an extra eight points for the dance marathon, had an overall total of 38 points, putting her in second place in the night’s rankings.
The stars and their partners sent special messages of support for the victims of Superstorm Sandy.

There will be no results show Tuesday night because of special coverage of Election Day. Two stars will be voted off next week.
The routines:

Apolo Anton Ohno: The Olympic speedskater’s cha-cha/paso doble had the judges smiling. Head judge Len Goodman said he expected Ohno to play it a bit safer given that there were no eliminations this week.

“You came out and really attacked this. The cha cha cha was crisp and clean. The paso had some fire. Apolo Anton Ohno...Apolo Oh Yes,” Goodman said. Judge Bruno Tonioli called the routine “triumphant” and “wonderful,” and judge Carrie Ann Inaba said it was “amazing” to see Ohno still pushing himself so much. Total score: 27 out of a possible 30 points.

Emmitt Smith: The NFL legend performed a fusion samba/rumba that drew moderate praise from Inaba and more glowing reviews from the other judges. Tonioli praised Smith for his deft handling of the difficult transition between the two dances.

“You did it with ease...that was wonderful,” he said. Goodman also thought Smith did well, but Inaba said the former football player didn’t have enough upper body movement. Total score: 27.5/30.

Kirstie Alley: Alley’s quickstep/samba earned the actress praise for effort, but all three judges thought her routine had issues. Inaba told her that her quickstep started out well, but said the actress lost timing in her transition to the samba.

Goodman noted Alley had a few “incidents” in the routine but said, “I thought it was an admirable effort, so well done to you.” Tonioli agreed. “Technique apart, whatever you do is always entertaining,” he said. Total score: 24/30.

Kelly Monaco: The General Hospital star performed a fusion foxtrot/cha cha cha that the judges liked. “That was a flashy cha cha. Plenty of flash and plenty of dash,” Tonioli said.

Inaba praised Monaco’s balance and elegance, and Goodman said that despite a small moment where Monaco lost her balance early on in the routine, it was lovely and well-done. Total score: 27/30.

Melissa Rycroft: Rycroft had a tango with a cha cha cha, and the TV personality’s performance drew rave reviews, especially from Tonioli.
“You were on fire. The shapes in the tango were absolutely fantastic. The cha cha cha, you’ve never been sexier. You turned me on!” he said. Goodman and Inaba also approved of the routine. “I loved the way it was all put together. Well done,” Goodman said. Total score: 29/30.

Shawn Johnson: With her usual partner, Derek Hough, out with a neck injury, the Olympic gymnast danced a tango/paso doble with Mark Ballas.
An enthusiastic Inaba said the routine was a textbook definition of fusion, while Goodman called it “fantastic.” Tonioli also had high praise for Johnson, telling her, “As fusions go, that was flawless.” Total score: 30/30.

Gilles Marini: The French actor performed an Argentine tango with a samba. He was going for a perfect score, but fell just a few points short — even though the judges praised the routine. Tonioli called the routine sultry, intense and exciting, but Inaba faulted Marini’s hands. Total score: 28.5/30.

The Swing Dance Marathon:

Dancers had four minutes to present their most inventive routines while remaining in constant motion.  The first dancer to leave the floor earned four points. Each successive dancer voted off earned one point more, with the last dancer getting 10 points. Rycroft won the swing dance marathon, picking up 10 extra points. Alley was the first to leave. She got four extra points.

The Totals (Fusion Routine/Swing Dance Marathon):

  • Melissa Rycroft: 29; 10: Total: 39 points.
  • Shawn Johnson: 30; 8: Total: 38 points.
  • Kelly Monaco: 27; 9: Total: 36 points.
  • Emmitt Smith: 27.5; 7: total: 34.5 points.
  • Gilles Marini: 28.5; 5: Total: 33.5 points.
  • Apolo Anton Ohno: 27; 6: Total: 33 points.
  • Kirstie Alley: 24; 4: Total: 28 points.

Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.

"Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" Recap: Country Night Brings Perfect Scores in Week 6

ABC (LOS ANGELES) -- Sabrina Bryan is the standout celebrity of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars' country week.

The former Disney star earned a perfect score -- 30 out of 30 -- on Monday night. Combined with her scores from last week, when there was no elimination, she has a cumulative tally of 88.5 out of 90, tops among all celebs.

Apolo Anton Ohno also received a perfect score Monday night, and has a cumulative score of 86.5. Bryan and Ohno's "30s" were the first of the season.

At the bottom of the leader board, with a cumulative score of 78.5 out of 90, is Kelly Monaco.

The remaining eight couples were asked to dance to a hit country song. Each routine included a solo performance by the celebrity.

The duos closed the broadcast with a country-flavored group dance, after which Kirstie Alley was awarded two bonus points for being the most entertaining all-star.

Here's a rundown of Monday's individual dances:

-- Wearing shiny black pants and a see-through shirt with a long V-neck, Gilles Marini danced the cha cha cha with Peta Murgatroyd to the Shania Twain hit "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!"

Len Goodman praised Marini for giving 100 percent on the dance floor. Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba agreed that the performance was sexy. Total score: 27.5/30. Cumulative score (including last week's scores): 84/90.

-- Sabrina Bryan was emotional during rehearsals as she recounted how she once had a boyfriend who was addicted to drugs. She used that experience to fuel her rumba with Louis Van Amstel, set to the Hunter Hayes song "Wanted."

Tonioli noted that it had an "emotional thread running through it." Inaba gave Bryan a hug and said she saw vulnerability in her that she'd been waiting to see all season. Total score: 30/30. Cumulative score: 88.5/90.

-- Kelly Monaco stepped off a wagon, in an elegant red dress, to join Valentin Chmerkovskiy for a tango to the recent Carrie Underwood single "Good Girl."

Inaba observed a huge shift in Monaco's performance in a positive direction. Goodman said it was hectic on occasion but otherwise under control. Total score: 27/30. Cumulative score: 78.5/90.

-- Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani adopted a wilderness theme -- compete with campfire -- for a Viennese waltz.

Goodman gave them a standing ovation for their great technique. Inaba complained that Rycroft didn't dance "out" enough, a sentiment with which Goodman disagreed. Total score: 29/30. Cumulative score: 86/90.

-- Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough utilized farm props, including a tractor and a plastic cow, for a cha cha cha to "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" by Kenny Chesney.

Tonioli said they were really working it. Goodman liked the choreography but felt the performance was too gimmicky, especially with the tractor and cow. Total score: 28/30. Cumulative score: 84.5/90.

-- Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy tackled the rumba.

Inaba declared the former Cheers star to be the "queen of sexy." Goodman had a slightly different take, arguing that the dance was clean but needed more hip action. Total score: 27.5/30. Cumulative score: 80/90, plus two bonus points for the show-ending group dance.

-- Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff's Viennese waltz was deeply personal. It told a story of a person battling cancer, something they've both witnessed first-hand with family members. Their song choice was Rascal Flatts' "Skin."

Goodman said they were two people in perfect harmony with each other and the music. Inaba described it as poetry in motion. Total score: 30/30. Cumulative score: 86.5/90.

-- Emmitt Smith donned a cowboy hat -- what else for a former Dallas Cowboys star? -- for his foxtrot with Cheryl Burke, set to "Islands in the Stream" by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton.

Inaba said they seemed a little out of sync, but Smith redeemed himself with his solo routine. Goodman thought Smith lacked finesse, yet was entertaining. Total score: 26.5/30. Cumulative score: 82.5/90.

The highlight-filled group dance was performed as Big & Rich sang their 2004 hit "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)." After the judges consulted with one another, Goodman announced that Alley was deemed to have been the most entertaining celebrity, and was thus awarded two extra points.

Another country group, Little Big Town, kicked off the show by playing their hit "Pontoon."

If you haven't cast your vote yet, there's still time. Voting will remain open on Facebook until 11 a.m. Eastern time Tuesday, presumably due to Hurricane Sandy.

Host Tom Bergeron also announced that next week the couples will attempt fusion dances -- combinations of two different styles.

One celebrity will be sent home on Tuesday night's one-hour results show, which begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC. Taylor Swift and Jason Mraz are the musical guests.

'Dancing with the Stars': Katherine Jenkins Tops Competitive Final Performance Show

ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- Who will win the Dancing with the Stars' Mirror Ball trophy on Tuesday night? It's anybody's guess following the ABC competition's final performance show of the season.

All three finalists -- Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins, NFL star Donald Driver, and telenovela actor William Levy -- brought their "A" game on Monday night. While Jenkins earned a perfect overall score for her two dances, her male counterparts were only one point off the lead.

Each celebrity danced twice, performing a style chosen by the judges as well as a freestyle routine. Here's a rundown of the individual performances:

-- Levy and his partner, Cheryl Burke, did the cha cha cha to the Pink hit "Raise Your Glass." The routine ended with the couple at a bar-type setting and Levy literally raising a martini glass.

Len Goodman declared it was as good a cha cha cha as he's seen during his 14 seasons on the show. Bruno Tonioli called it "intoxicating," adding that Levy's hip action left him green with envy. Total score for first dance: 30 out of a possible 30.

For their freestyle, the duo performed a fast-paced dance that involved several theatrics, including Burke jumping on Levy's back.

Goodman dismissed it as being too predictable, accusing Levy of simply shaking his butt just so he could get the female audience members to scream for him. Carrie Ann Inaba flashed a wide smile and disagreed with Goodman, saying it was everything that a freestyle should be. Total score for second dance: 29/30. Overall score: 59/60.

-- Jenkins and her partner, Mark Ballas, donned Spanish outfits for their paso doble. Jenkins showed no ill-effects from the lower back ailment she suffered last week.

Inaba complimented Jenkins by calling her a "prima diva" for her graceful movements. Goodman said the dance was "full of tasty tidbits to tickle your taste buds." Total score for first dance: 30/30.

Jenkins dressed as a mid-20th-century singer -- she even sang a little -- and joined Ballas for an energetic dance to Benny Goodman's "Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing)."

Tonioli said it was a tour de force through all of the ages of swing music. Inaba described it as a dance worthy of a champion. Total score for second dance: 30/30. Overall score: 60/60.

-- Driver tackled the Argentine tango with his partner, Peta Murgatroyd, as the band played the Jem song "They."

Goodman, who prior to Monday had never given Driver a perfect score, denied him again for this dance, and said the routine was too careful for his liking. Tonioli said it was intimate yet also intense. Total score for first dance: 29/30.

Driver and Murgatroyd adopted a cowboy theme for their freestyle, which featured a football field graphic superimposed on top of the dance floor.

Inaba stood up and yelled that it was by far her favorite dance of the night. Amazingly, Goodman didn't find fault with it, saying it was fantastic and giving it a "10." Tonioli referred to it as a "triumph." Total score for the second dance: 30/30. Overall score: 59/60.

The couples will dance a third time on Tuesday night. Their overall score for their three dances, combined with the viewers' votes, will determine the new champions.

The two-hour results show, featuring musical performances by Kelly Clarkson and Dancing with the Stars contestant Gladys Knight, will begin on ABC at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.

William Levy on ‘Dancing With the Stars’: ‘I Never Came Trying to Win It All’

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Dancing With the Stars fans are waiting with baited breath Monday night as Latin heartthrob William Levy, singer Katherine Jenkins and Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver go head-to-head one last time for the finale.

But as they take the stage Monday for one more cut-throat dance-off, Levy told Nightline in an April interview he wasn’t really focused on taking home the mirror ball trophy.

“When I came into this competition, I never came trying to beat anybody,” Levy told ABC’s Juju Chang. “I never came trying to win it all. You know, I just came and I said to myself that I was going to give myself into this 100 percent and enjoy it. … I never expect to win it all.”

We shall see. The Dancing With the Stars finale airs Monday night at 8 p.m. with the results airing Tuesday at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Levy has earned a perfect score twice in the competition, but the Spanish soap opera star and former underwear model said his chiseled body actually put him at a disadvantage.

“It’s difficult for me,” he said. “You got to work actually on getting a little bit softer, which is a bit weird, you know, for a guy.”

Perhaps he’s being too modest. After all, the 31-year-old Cuban native also revealed he has been dancing salsa, meringue and other Latin routines for years. But Levy said he didn’t learn how to dance professionally until he appeared on Dancing with the Stars. He let the music guide his feet.

“We are very passionate in everything we do,” Levy said, referring to his Latin culture. “Through music, we live. Through music, we have fun. Through music, we enjoy our time there because everything else is so hard.”

'Dancing with the Stars': Maria Menounos Eliminated, Finalists Are Revealed

ABC/ADAM TAYLOR(LOS ANGELES) -- Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Maria Menounos eliminated from Dancing with the Stars!

The Extra correspondent and her partner, Derek Hough, on Tuesday night failed to advance to the finals of the ABC competition. Next week, Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas, telenovela actor William Levy and his partner Cheryl Burke, and NFL star Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd will face off for the Mirror Ball trophy.

Menounos' dismissal was surprising, considering that she and Hough topped the semifinals leader board with a near-perfect overall score the previous night.

Following the announcement, Menounos said her experience as a contestant was a rewarding one for her. She said, "I learned so many things. I learned how strong I was. I learned to persevere."

Jenkins is headed for the finals despite suffering what she described on Twitter as a "reflectorical spasm" in her lower back during this week's performance show. She jumped up and down after learning that she'd advanced, then stated that she'll be OK to compete next Monday night.

The musical guests on the results show were Carrie Underwood, who sang her new hit "Good Girl"; Alanis Morissette, who performed her new single "Guardian"; and Rock of Ages stars Julianne Hough, Mary J. Blige and Diego Boneta, who did a medley of '80s rock hits from their upcoming film. It was a homecoming of sorts for Hough, who was a pro dancer on the show for several seasons.

The Dancing with the Stars finals begin next Monday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time.

'Dancing with the Stars' Recap: Melissa Gilbert & Roshon Fegan Eliminated

ABC (LOS ANGELES) -- So much for "happy birthday." On the day she turned 48, former Little House on the Prairie actress Melissa Gilbert and her pro partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, were eliminated from Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night.

Disney actor Roshon Fegan and his partner, Chelsie Hightower, also got the boot as part of the ABC series' double-elimination week.

That leaves four couples to battle it out in next week's semifinals: Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas, Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough, and William Levy and Cheryl Burke.

Gilbert, the lowest-scoring celebrity on Monday's performance show, said it was a joyful birthday for her despite her elimination because she made it so far in the competition.    

Fegan -- who was situated in the upper half of the leader board thanks in part to a foxtrot that earned him a score of 29 out of a possible 30 -- said he was happy he learned ballroom dancing moves.

Chris Brown was the musical guest on the results show, performing "Turn Up the Music." There was also a dancing tribute to the late Dick Clark.

Dancing with the Stars' semifinals round begins next Monday on ABC at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time.

"Dancing with the Stars" Recap: Jaleel White Eliminated

ABC/ADAM TAYLOR(LOS ANGELES) -- Jaleel White has left the Dancing with the Stars family.

The former Family Matters star and his pro partner, Kym Johnson, were dismissed from the ballroom Tuesday night after losing the final dance duel of the season to Roshon Fegan and the Disney actor's partner, Chelsie Hightower.

After falling into the bottom two, both couples danced the rumba to the Adele hit "Set Fire to the Rain." All three judges voted to save Fegan rather than White.

White, best known for playing the nerdy neighbor Steve Urkel on Family Matters, said he exceeded his own expectations after promising his mother that he would last long enough in the competition to perform "three good dances."

Before and after his elimination, White tweaked Len Goodman over the judge's honest critiques. He said at one point, "Len is the old guy outside of a grocery store who won't give the kid any money for candy."

On Monday's classical music-themed performance show, White and Johnson landed in the bottom half of the leader board following a Viennese waltz and "team tango." The lowest-scoring celebrity, Melissa Gilbert, will return next Monday along with five other stars.

Recently-eliminated contestant Gavin DeGraw was the musical guest on the results show, performing his new single "Sweeter."

'Dancing with the Stars' Recap: Gladys Knight Goes Home

ABC/ADAM TAYLOR(LOS ANGELES) -- It was "good night" for Gladys Knight on Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night.

The Motown legend and her pro partner, Tristan MacManus, were eliminated from the ABC competition after losing a "dance duel" to Disney actor Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower.

After both couples fell into the bottom two, they were asked to perform the jive simultaneously. Carrie Ann Inaba voted to save Knight, but both Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli opted to keep Fegan.

Knight told the crowd she was "amazed at this journey. It was absolutely extraordinary, I learned so many things, found so many friends and family, and I'm just overjoyed."

Knight was the lowest-scoring celebrity on Monday's performance show after dancing the rumba and earning a quick elimination during a cha cha cha marathon.

The musical guests on Tuesday's results show were Boyz II Men, who performed their latest single "One More Dance," and Natasha Bedingfield, who sang "Wild Horses." Bedingfield's performance came during the "spotlight performance" featuring a 17-year-old female ballet dancer who overcame a tough childhood after she was born in Sierra Leone.

Next Monday night, the seven remaining stars will return to the ballroom for a classical music-themed performance show.

"Dancing with the Stars": Katherine Jenkins Triumphs on Motown Night

ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- A Motown legend couldn't capitalize on Dancing with the Stars' Motown theme Monday night.

Gladys Knight tumbled to the bottom of the leader board following a low-scoring rumba and a quick exit during a cha cha cha marathon.

Meanwhile, Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins kept rolling along. She was the points leader for the fifth time this season.

Each of the eight remaining celebrities danced a routine to a live performance by either Smokey Robinson, The Temptations or Martha Reeves.

At the end of the show, they all came together for the aforementioned marathon, during which they danced the cha cha cha side by side. The judges eliminated the couples one by one; the first pair to get the hook earned three points, the second pair four points, and so on. Jenkins outlasted her fellow stars to win the marathon and gain an extra 10 points.

Here's a rundown of the individual performances, in chronological order:

-- Knight opened the broadcast with a slow-paced rumba with her partner, Tristan MacManus, to The Temptations' classic song "My Girl."

Head judge Len Goodman said Knight isn't the best dancer in the competition, but she is the most charismatic dancer. Bruno Tonioli pointed out that Knight messed up the ending to her routine, which he said wasn't steamy enough. Total score: 21 out of a possible 30. Overall score (including competition marathon): 24.

-- Maria Menounos and Derek Hough looked like they were dressed for a fancy ball -- the TV host wore an elegant white dress and gloves for their foxtrot, set to Martha Reeves' live rendition of "Jimmy Mack."

Menounos lost her footing a bit during the dance, which Carrie Ann Inaba said threw her off her choreography. Goodman overlooked the mistake, calling the performance a "joy to my eyes." Total score: 26/30. Overall score (including competition marathon): 30.

-- Disney actor Roshon Fegan brought some heat to his rumba with Chelsie Hightower, as Smokey Robinson sang "Cruisin.'"

All three judges thought Fegan's movements weren't particularly fluid, though Goodman was quick to mention that he didn't dislike the dance. Tonioli told Fegan that what he lacks in size he makes up for in "fight." Total score: 23/30. Overall score (including competition marathon): 28.

-- Katherine Jenkins went with a retro look, wearing a beehive hairdo and a sexy golden dress with tassels for the samba with Mark Ballas. They were accompanied by The Temptations, who sang "I Can't Get Next to You."

Goodman asked the duo whether there was an earthquake or whether they shook the ballroom with their dancing. Tonioli marveled at how Jenkins could bounce and bring the funk to the dance floor. Inaba said Jenkins let loose, and the results were amazing. Total score: 29/30. Overall score (including competition marathon): 39.

-- Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd tackled the foxtrot to The Temptations' "The Way You Do the Things You Do." He even mouthed the words to the song during his dance.

Tonioli described Driver as a mix of pizzazz and confidence. Goodman said he expected fireworks from Driver and got more than that, because the Green Bay Packers wide receiver "exploded" on the dance floor. Total score: 27/30. Overall score (including competition marathon): 34.

-- Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy teamed up on a Viennese waltz to Smokey Robinson's "Ooo Baby Baby."

Inaba said Gilbert's hard work is finally paying off. Tonioli complimented her on her wonderful rotation and her connection on the dance floor with her partner. Total score: 24/30. Overall score (including competition marathon): 30.

-- Jaleel White bounced back in a big way with a cha cha cha alongside Kym Johnson. The Temptations provided the soundtrack with "Ain't Too Proud to Beg."

Goodman declared that after a couple of shaky weeks, White re-established himself as a contender. Tonioli called the routine "the biggest sizzler of the season." Total score: 29/30. Overall score (including competition marathon): 37.

-- The fog machine was in full effect for William Levy and Cheryl Burke's rumba. Coincidentally -- or maybe not -- smoke filled the ballroom as Smokey Robinson sang "Being With You."

Tonioli said the moves were filthy, but he loved every minute of it. Goodman disagreed, saying the dance was too raunchy for his liking. Inaba felt it wasn't Levy's best dance of the season. Total score: 27/30. Overall score (including competition marathon): 36.

The results show, featuring musical guest Boyz II Men, airs on ABC Tuesday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time. Once again, the bottom two couples will face off in a "dance duel," with the losers going home.
