This post contains DWTS: All Stars spoilers for the premiere episode. Please stop reading here if you do not want to know what happens!

Last night on Dancing With the Stars All Stars, Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas ended up the lowest on the score board after their dance failed to impress. However, Bristol Palin has a track record in her previous season of squeaking through week to week even with less than stellar scores. Will her fan base manage to keep her safe again this week?

Also in danger tonight are Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who barely scored higher than Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas for their routine last night. However, I think Kirstie Alley’s large fan base will keep her from being eliminated this early in the season. Still, you never know what the DWTS voters are going to do. They are known to be unpredictable and just about anyone could end up going home tonight if the public doesn’t decide they are worthy of their support for some reason.

Before we get to the results tonight on DWTS All Stars, we’ll be delayed by a recap of the ‘breakout dances’ for each of the cast members from their previous seasons. The judges have picked which dances from each of the all stars marked the point they became true competitors.

In season one back in 2005, judge Len Goodman thinks Kelly Monaco‘s breakout moment was during her performance of the Samba. In the midst of the dance, she suffered a wardrobe malfunction when the strap on her top broke, but she didn’t let it phase her, completing the dance with panache. Len Goodman says that performance marked the moment she transitioned from a contender to a winner.

According to judge Carrie Anne Inaba, the breakout dance for Emmitt Smith was his Cha-Cha to “Son of a Preacher Man”. She says he just looks effortless and he needs to bring the same charisma to this season in order to win it.

Len Goodman says he was shocked when Sabrina Bryan was voted out of her season. He says her most fabulous performance from that season was her action-filled Paso Doble. He is very pleased that she is back again and doing so well in the competition this season.

Bruno Tonioli says Joey Fatone‘s Star Wars themed Tango routine was his best showmanship performance even though it was not technically his greatest dance. Bruno says he needs to have both the showmanship and the technique to make it to the end this time.

Apolo Anton Ohno‘s “I Like To Move It” Samba was his best defining moment, according to Bruno. Ohno earned three perfect 10’s for that routine and Bruno says it was then he turned into a real entertainer.

DWTS winner Helio Castroneves had his best dance was his week 8 Quick Step in his winning season according to Len Goodman. Len says it had control, speed and everything you could want. Len says if he can bring the same joy and presence this season, everyone should watch out.

Bruno believes Melissa Rycroft‘s standout performance was her Lindy Hop in season eight. He says it was sharp from start to finish and all the more impressive because she was launched into the competition with only two days to prep. He says when she has to face a difficult challenge, she overcomes it and brings it.

Next up is Gilles Marini and Carrie Ann says it was his Argentine Tango in week 4 of his season that was his best performance. That dance earned him a perfect score and Carrie Ann says it only got better from there.

Carrie Ann says Shawn Johnson proved she was a contender for the Mirror Ball in week 7 of her season with her Cha Cha routine. Carrie Ann says she blossomed just at the right time and Shawn needs to do the same thing to win this season.

Bristol Palin‘s breakout performance was her week 6 Tango in season eleven. She really shined and brought her inner sexiness out in that routine, which she needs to do again this time around.

Last up in the recap portion, Bruno thinks Kirstie Alley’s best performance was her Waltz. During the routine, she briefly lost a shoe but she stayed focused and showed off the fluid movement in her arms. Bruno says Kirstie needs to bring her acting skills and commitment to the competition and she will do great.

Before the live show begins, the judges  choose Sabrina Bryan and Louis van Amstel‘s Quick Step as their favorite performance from last night to see again.

Finally the first results are announced and the favorite dance couple of last night, Sabrina Bryan and Louis van Amstel, are safe. Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke, and Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya are also declared safe. Well, there goes my predictions for tonight’s bottom two. The first couple in jeopardy is Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson.

The next results are delayed for a guest performance by British teen star Cher Lloyd with her single “Want You Back”. Frankly, I want the original Cher back. Seriously, change your name. There is only one Cher.

More delays as we watch a performance from Macy’s Stars of Dance. Oh and look, it is Benji and Lacey Schwimmer on the stage to perform with the Dance Troop. Cool. Awesome. Now, more results please!

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough are the next to be announced as safe, along with Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Despite having the lowest scores last night, wouldn’t you know it… Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas are also safe. Well, screw my predictions just all over the place. Kelly Monaco and Val Chemerkovskiy are in jeopardy.

Previous Dancing With the Stars finalist and fabulous singer Katherine Jenkins takes the stage with astounding tenor Placido Domingo with a performance of “Come What May”. Now THAT is awesome music.

Next up, Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, and Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smiroff are all declared safe. The last couple in jeopardy is Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower.

The first couple to be sent back over to the safe side from the three in jeopardy is Kelly Monaco and Val Chemerkovskiy.

Here we go now with the final elimination results for week 2…

The couple that has been voted off Dancing With the Stars All Stars this week is… Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson!
