'Dancing With the Stars' tosses last week's results: Here's what happened

In what's believed to be a show first, "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night tossed out the voting results from last week's edition. No one was therefore eliminated, which means all eight remaining couples live to dance another week.

Last week's edition, the fifth, mixed up on-screen numbers -- those 800 and text numbers that appear after the judges' votes are posted. For example, viewers on the East Coast saw Elizabeth Berkley's team number in place of Bill Engvall's, or Corbin Bleu's team number in place of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's. The possibility for vote distortion was reasonably high -- after all, Berkley is one of this season's leaders, while Engvall was trailing all contestants in judge totals this past Monday. In fact, it appeared either Engvall or Jack Osbourne was about to be eliminated when host Tom Bergeron stepped in to announce the show's decision.

Judges' scores and viewer votes from Monday's show will be combined with next week's totals.
