Last week it was the surprising elimination of Kristin Cavallari.  This week another early favorite was sent home on ABC's 'Dancing With the Stars.'   But before the bad news was delivered, Julianne Hough returned to the ballroom with her 'Footloose' co-star Kenny Wormald, to dance while Blake Shelton sang the movie's theme song.  She also performed with her brother, Derek Hough. 


After the fun was over, host Tom Bergerson delivered the sad news. Chynna Phillips, who forgot most of her dance routine Monday night was eliminated.  Judge Len Goodman had tagged her a favorite after her first place finish in week one.  Chynna said she was disappointed and sad, but she took responsibility for what happened.


Are you as shocked as I am?  Another great dancer has been sent home too early.  Yes, Chynna forgot her steps but there are other contestants still around that can't remember their steps every week!  As long as Ricki Lake and JR Martinez stick around, I'll be good.

The eight remaining contestants return to the ballroom next Monday night at 8 on ABC.
