After five couples performed mixed-up routines and a tribute to Michael Jackson on Dancing with the Stars the night before, two contestants were sent packing Tuesday night, just one week short of season 15's all-star finale.

And Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy, and Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke were tied with 54 points each. »
