After getting the bad news, Fox got choked up a bit when he told co-host Brooke Burke the dancing experience has been a transformational journey that had even affected his relationship with his daughter and his girlfriend, actress Eliza Dushku.

The show continued the celebration of the program's 200th episode this week by presenting a few special awards. Marie Osmond's fainting spell from 2007 was named Most Dramatic Moment and she accepted a sash at her show in Las Vegas.  Also, former contestant and ESPN pundit Kenny Mayne received a plaque with two left feet after being named the Best Worst Dancer.

The Dancing with the Stars results show also featured live performances from Taylor Swift, Rod Stewart and the cast of the musical Mary Poppins.  Swift performed "Mine," the first single from her new album, Speak Now, as well as "White Horse," from her previous album, Fearless.  Stewart performed the classic tune "I Get a Kick Out of You" from his latest Great American Songbook album.

The competition with the five remaining couples continues next Monday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
