Daytime television's hottest stars glammed it up for the red carpet at the Emmy Awards Sunday, where bright hues and silky frocks ruled the red carpet! Tell "Extra" -- Which fierce fashionista looked the best at the awards show?
She has won an Emmy, but daytime diva Susan Lucci will not be winning the mirrored ball on "Dancing with the Stars."
Lucci and partner Tony Dovolani received the lowest number of viewer votes for their performance of the paso doble on Monday night's show. The judges scored the routine a weak 24 out of 30.
In a "DWTS" first, competitors were split into two groups during Monday's performances show. Lucci lead Team Cha-Cha with "Hannah Montana" cutie Cody Linley and former boy-bander Lance Bass. Judge Carrie Ann called the performance "brutal," and the team scored a lousy 20. Former Oakland Raider Warren Sapp received a rockin' 29 points with Team Paso Doble, which included babe Brooke Burke and Olympian Maurice Greene.
The team routine scores, combined with the partner dancing scores and viewer votes sent Lucci packing. Susan will return to her day job in Pine Valley as Erica Kane on "All My Children."
"Dancing" queen Brooke Burke continued her reign over the dance floor last night by earning the first perfect score of the "Dancing with the Stars" season with a jazzy foxtrot.
Burke and partner Derek Hough earned rave reviews from the judges -- and the fair-haired Hough paid the model a rarely heard compliment during rehearsals, telling Brooke, "There are moments in there when I feel like I'm dancing with a professional." Judge Bruno Tonioli called the quick-footed number "a gobsmacking, beautiful performance from start to finish."
Lance Bass and Maurice Greene also earned high marks from the judges. "Hannah Montana" star Cody Linley, whose partner Julianne Hough is out of the competition this week, teamed up with Edyta Sliwinska -- but faltered during the Viennese waltz. Actress Susan Lucci and NFL star Warren Sapp also garnered low scores.
No one will be going home tonight, due to the presidential election coverage, but "DWTS" resumes Wednesday night, when one more dancer will be asked to leave the floor.
