Shocking 'Dancing With the Stars' Elimination: Whose Past-Year Dance Means a Mirrorball Trophy Isn't In Their Future?
SPOILER ALERT: This recap reveals the elimination results of Week 5 of "Dancing With the Stars."
On Monday's "Dancing With the Stars," the Season 17 celebs went back in time to pay tribute to the most memorable years of their lives. And while the night was full of highs and lows as the stars rehashed their pasts through dance, unfortunately for one couple, one thing isn't in their future: A mirrorball trophy.
In a results shocker, this week's highest scoring couple went home. Following an emotional personal story dance, Christina Milian and her pro partner Mark Ballas became the 4th couple eliminated from the TV dancing competition.

Milian's elimination was especially shocking because not only did her dance score tie for the highest score of the night, but it also nabbed the first 10 of the season — from Len Goodman, no less! Her cha cha was based on the tumultuous year of 2010 when the pop singer gave birth to her daughter and split from her husband. It scored 28 out of 30 points, tying with Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff for the top of the judges' leaderboard. But with the show's new format, it's last week's audience votes that really mattered.
Watch Milian's elimination:
After her elimination was announced, the 32-year-old pop singer said, "We had the best performance tonight that we've had thus far, and to leave on any other note ... it would be this way."
Mark Ballas agreed: "We went out with a bang," he said.

One of the most highly anticipated dances this week was actress Elizabeth Berkley's throwback moment, which came from one of the most iconic "Saved by the Bell" episodes of all time.
