'Dancing With the Stars' Week 7: Who Took One for the Team?
SPOILER ALERT: This recap reveals the elimination results of Week 7 of "Dancing With the Stars."
On Monday night's "Dancing With the Stars," the spray-tanned celebs did double dancing duty for a Halloween-week show that was full of tricks, treats, and this season's first team dance round.
But first, after a week of speculation over whether there would be a double elimination this week following a technical snafu that resulted in no elimination last Monday, the "DWTS" powers that be released a promo that promised there would be a "big announcement" at the start of the show.

Ousted contestant Christina Milian appeared on "Good Morning America" to dish that two couples could be going home this week, while host Tom Bergeron even tweeted a speculation article about the surprise announcement and teased that there could be a double elimination, a new judge, or even the return of the results show.So, what was the big announcement? Bergeron revealed that Cher would be a guest judge next week. The Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Golden Globe winner will fill in for Len Goodman. (And no nepotism here — her son Chaz competed on the show four seasons ago.)
Cher's coming next week:
Of course, even Cher couldn't save this week's doomed couple. (And yes, there was only one.) Following this week's solo dance and team dance number, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her pro partner Sasha Farber became the 5th couple eliminated from the TV dancing competition.

The shocking news came after Snooki's high scoring samba and a spot-on team dance, which each earned her 27 points. The emotional "Jersey Shore" star could barely speak after her elimination was announced: "I can't even talk right now," she told Brooke Burke-Charvet. "I love everybody here, so it sucks. ... I don't want to go."
