"Dancing with the Stars 25" recap: Barbara Corcoran tanks

After they were cut, hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews spoke with Corcoran, who opened up about how she felt now that her DWTS journey alongside Motsepe had come to an end. Following Lindsey Sterling's own bout with depression, the musician was excited to metaphorically - but also kind of literally - transform into a butterfly for her quickstep with Mark Ballas. Singer Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd walked away with 19 points, as did former National Basketball Association coach and player Terrell Owens, who enjoyed his foxtrot with Sharna Burgess.

Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson: Bruno called Frankie's performance a "missile right on target", while Carrie Ann referred to it as an "explosion". It also meant that the show moved quickly between segments, wanting to get all 13 couples in before dramatically knocking one out of the competition ahead of tomorrow night's competition. She danced the tango and the hardest judge to impress Len Goodman, was fairly pleased with her dance, calling it "a little bit of a bounce-back". Carrie Ann nitpicked her neck, but all three judges liked it. Her spirit is infectious, but her dancing tonight (to be fair, basically Gleb's choreography) wasn't up to Len Goodman's high standards (on the other hand, he contradicted himself and then gave the couple an 8). Bruno was enthralled and called it a "sextrot". You never want to hear a word like "gangly" in your critiques, but that's exactly what "fixer-upper" Drew Scott got from the judges after his quickstep with Emma Slater. All Len had to say? Anyway, Carrie Ann said Derek danced a little "small", so maybe a couple of eccentric puppets to cheer him on would have done the trick.

Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke (foxtrot): 20 (7, 6, 7). Well, Bruno and Carrie Ann were pretty close to blushing, and they sparred with Len.

Ditto "Pretty Little Liars" star Sasha Pieterse on her Viennese waltz.

Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy: I still can't get over the fact that Victoria can dance like that and has no feeling in her legs. Goodman added that the former National Basketball Association player needs to work on his "finesse and technique".


Not improved: Former NBA player Derek Fisher was congenial on a joyful foxtrot, but judges said he needed better technique.

Singer-actor Jordan Fisher seems to have the best technique and most dance talent.

After taking a spill in rehearsal, Drew Scott did a quickstep. Also, with the judges all getting to talk again, they disagreed with each other early and often on performances.

Just seconds after Jordan Fisher received his scores, Barbara and Keo as well as Terrell and Cheryl faced down the possibility of not making it to Tuesday. Sadly, we won't see more of that (or Barbara gushing over Keo's abs) since she was the first contestant eliminated this season. The "Property Brothers" star may have to sit out Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars" after suffering an injury.
