Peta Murgatroyd and Brant Daugherty
TVGuide.com caught up with Murgatroyd on Tuesday to discuss their shocking dismissal, and get her thoughts on how Cher did as a guest judge.
By all accounts, the weekly rehearsals for contestants on Dancing with the Stars require a tremendous amount of physical strain and mental focus. Unfortunately, Brant Daugherty wasn't feeling up to par in either area before performing last week's quickstep. The Pretty Little Liars star was mugged outside of his apartment immediately following his routine the previous week, and also had to contend with a foot injury ahead of Week 3. Still, that didn't stop him and partner Peta Murgatroyd from finishing in first place for the night, with a score of 27. TVGuide.com spoke with Daugherty about how he dealt with the distractions, and what he and Murgatroyd have in store for viewers this week.
Aly Raisman, Mark Ballas
Forget the Fierce Five. Aly Raisman has made the final five of Dancing with the Stars and is one step closer to the Mirrorball trophy. "It feels awesome. I can't believe how fast the competition has been," she tells TVGuide.com. "Week 1 feels like it was forever ago, but at the same time, the finals are only a week away." The Olympic champ will have two chances to make her case for the finals on Monday with a rumba and a Twitter-voted Afro-jazz. Find out what she and Mark Ballas have planned, why they wanted Afro-jazz and what she thinks of Len Goodman's outburst at Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough last week.

Len Goodman wants Aly Raisman to stick her butt in on Dancing with the Stars — but that won't happen this week. "It's Latin Night and we have the salsa, so you have to move your butt," she tells TVGuide.com. "Sorry, Len!" But butt-shaking isn't the only thing the Olympic champ is focused on this week. Find out what else she and Mark Ballas have planned.
Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas
Last Monday's Dancing with the Stars was a tough one for Aly Raisman, not just because she flubbed a move in her samba, but because the Needham, Mass., native performed hours after the Boston Marathon bombings. (Her family and friends are OK.) "It was really difficult," she tells TVGuide.com. "I just want to say that I love everyone back home from Boston. You're all in our thoughts and prayers. Mark [Ballas] and I tweeted a picture of us making a heart. We're all thinking about you. I'm so sorry that this happened. My heart goes out to everyone who's affected. Hopefully I can do well for...
Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici
On The Bachelor finale, Sean Lowe said that he was so torn between Catherine and Lindsay that he didn't decide between them until he woke up on the morning of the proposal. But did he really not know that Catherine was "The One" until then? Nope!

Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd
Peta Murgatroyd and Gilles Marini could barely contain their excitement last week when they found out their Team Freestyle song on Dancing with the Stars is PSY's "Gangnam Style" — so much so that they had to double-check. "I couldn't believe it," Murgatroyd tells TVGuide.com. "It was too perfect, so I had to make sure. We were thrilled, as you saw." The defending champ is also thrilled with their team, which includes boyfriend Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley, Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkvoskiy, and Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke, Marini's former partner. So what can we expect from their team dance and their individual rumba? Keep reading!
Joey Fatone, Kym Johnson
Joey Fatone just has one request for Week 2 of Dancing with the Stars: "Don't make me go first!"
The Season 4 alum kicked off the All-Stars season with Kym Johnson last week and does not want to be the opening act again. "I better not!" he tells TVGuide.com. "When they told me I was first, I was like, 'Oh, crap!' Then everyone says it's an honor. It's not an honor! People might forget about you and you might get voted off first. It was cool to kick off the show, but there was a lot of pressure."
The 'N Sync star is feeling good about his next dance, the quickstep, though. See what else he has to say about coming back, who he thought he might be paired with and how he's targeting Drew Lachey.
