Shawn Johnson may be happy that she got nearly perfect scores on Monday night's competition, but she did not seem too thrilled on Tuesday night, Oct. 16, when she found out what song she had to perform to next week in the group dance.
Next week the celebrities have to compete in individual free-style dances to a "guilty pleasure" song of their choice as well as group dances. After being tied for the top spot (39.5 out of 40) on the leaderboard with fellow competitor Gilles Marini and his partner, Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough were one set of team leaders and Marini and Peta Murgatroyd were the other team leaders for the group dances. Before choosing which other dancers to have on their teams, they had to pick the song the they would perform to.
Johnson picked first and to her dismay, she picked Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." Marini picked "Gangnam Style" by PSY.
Marini and his partner were more than ecstatic over their pick, however, Johnson had more of a gloomy look oh her face. Watch the full episode here and see for yourself.
The pop song was a huge summer hit, blasting on the airways and making Jepsen a force to be reckoned with among teen fans. Let's hope the same luck will come for Johnson and her team.
On team Johnson/Hough are the following:
Sabrina Bryan and Louie VanAmstel
Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani
Apolo Ohno and Karina Smirnoff
The remainder of the dancers are on team Marini/Murgatroyd.
The next week of competition will air in two segments because of the presidential debate, which also is aired on ABC. The first segment of dances will be on Oct. 22 at 8/7 Central and will be only one hour long. The second half will air the following night, at the same time and for the same length.
Also shown on Tuesday night was the competition's latest couple to be sent home. Bristol Palin and her partner Mark Ballas has the lowest combined overall score and were sent home in week four of the dancing competition. It came down to them and Kristie Alley and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Previous celebrity competitors sent home this season include Drew Lachey and Helio Castronevez.
