"Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" -- Sabrina Bryan Voted Off in Week Six

ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- Singer/actress Sabrina Bryan and her partner Louis Van Amstel, a team that has dominated Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars in the past two weeks and earned the first perfect score of the season, was voted off the show Tuesday. The decision shocked the audience in the ballroom, who voiced their displeasure with a chorus of boos.

The elimination is all the more stunning because Bryan, the star of The Cheetah Girls, was also a favorite to win when she was eliminated in the sixth week of the regular show’s season five. Her elimination back then shocked viewers and the show’s three judges.

Those judges, Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, all looked stunned Tuesday when Bryan’s name was announced.

The star smiled through her disappointment and expressed her gratitude for the experience.

“Every single person can understand what it feels like to get a second chance at something and this was my second chance,” she said.

Bryan earned her spot on the All-Stars edition by beating out DWTS alums Kyle Massey and Carson Kressley in a viewers’ choice vote.

“Louis, I’m so grateful for you,” Bryan told Van Amstel, adding, “I’m grateful for this experience and Dancing with the Stars honestly has been just an absolute dream.”

Bryan’s rumba during Monday’s country night-themed show earned her 30 points -- the first perfect score of season 15. That score, combined with her score from last week’s show -- where she again topped the leaderboard -- put her at the top of the pack going into Tuesday’s results show.

Elimination from the show is based upon a combination of judges’ and viewer votes. The star with the lowest overall total is sent home.

Actress Kelly Monaco got the lowest judges’ score on Monday’s performance show, but she was declared safe from elimination on Tuesday.

Tuesday’s results show also featured a performance by singers Taylor Swift and Jason Mraz.

Next week’s presidential election will bring a change to the Dancing with the Stars schedule. The stars will perform on Monday, but there will be no results show and elimination on Tuesday, Election Day.

Next Monday’s show will feature the stars doing “fusion” performances, which judge Len Goodman said would require the couples to perform two styles of dance to one piece of music.

Returning next week to perform are Ohno, Monaco, NFL legend Emmitt Smith, Olympian Shawn Johnson, actors Gilles Marini and Kirstie Alley and TV personality Melissa Rycroft.  Because Johnson’s partner, Derek Hough, injured his neck, she will be partnered with Mark Ballas next week.  Ballas is available to fill-in because his All-Stars celebrity partner, Bristol Palin, was eliminated two weeks ago.

Sabrina Bryan Wins 13th Spot on "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars"

Taylor Hill/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Sabrina Bryan has won the viewers’ choice vote to become the 13th contestant on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars.

“I am so excited.  I’m getting teary eyed just right now,” Bryan said Monday on ABC's Good Morning America when the results of the vote were revealed.  “It was a fight…we all three really wanted it.  I’m the lucky one with some amazing, incredible fans that have really stuck behind me.”

Bryan, 27, earned the most fan votes online, beating out fashion commentator Carson Kressley (Season 13) and Disney Channel star Kyle Massey (Season 11).  All three had been campaigning to win the 13th spot.

Bryan will dance with professional partner Louis van Amstel, who has appeared on seven seasons of the hit show.

“This is the first season I can knock myself out as a dancer, as a choreographer because she’s so good,” van Amstel said on GMA.  “From day one, we are going to knock even our own socks off.”

Bryan, an actress, dancer and singer, is best known for being a member of The Cheetah Girls.

Competing in season five of Dancing With the Stars, Bryan and partner Mark Ballas earned high scores -- including a perfect 30 for their week four paso doble -- and were heavily favored to win.  Her elimination in week six of the season stunned the show’s viewers and judges.

“For me, it’s just incredible to have a second chance for my fans.  They were just so supportive from the beginning to just stick behind me and rally the troops. …This is all about them.  I am so lucky,” Bryan said.  “I feel like the stars are aligning and I get a second chance.”

Bryan will compete against her former partner, Ballas, who is dancing with Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin this season.  She joins Palin, actress Kirstie Alley, football star Emmitt Smith and nine other past contestants in the program’s first ever all-stars competition, which premieres on Monday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
