DANCING WITH THE STARS 'Switches Up' More Than Dancing After Technical Problems

Eight remaining couples hit the dance floor and faced an exciting new challenge on "Dancing with the Stars" tonight, October 21, when they competed in an individual dance style they had not yet done, as well as taking part in the first-ever "Switch-Up Challenge."

But dancing wasn't the only thing Being "switched up" this evening -- People reports that technical problems made many viewers's votes invalid, and as a result, no one was eliminated this week.

"Last week, at the end of the show we had a technical problem," host Tom Bergeron said. "The incorrect phone numbers were shown. And they have resulted in some votes accidentally cast for the wrong couple. So, in fairness we have decided to discard all the viewer votes and not eliminate anyone this week."

Hosts Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet revealed after announcing which couples were in the bottom two -- Jack Osbourne & Cheryl Burke and Bill Engvall & Emma Slater -- that both duos were safe.

Hosted by Emmy Award-winner Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season 7 Champion), "Dancing with the Stars" is the hit series in which celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which are judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Viewers may cast their votes for their favorite teams via phone on Monday nights during and up to 60 Minutes after the end of the "Dancing with the Stars" broadcast in each time zone. Online voting at www.ABC.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/dancingwiththestars is open for 24 hours, beginning from the start of each episode on the East Coast at 8:00 p.m., ET/5:00 p.m., PT and closing at 8:00 p.m., ET/5:00 p.m., PT on Tuesday evenings. For the final week, on Monday, November 25, online voting will open for 15 hours, beginning from the start of the episode on the East Coast at 8:00 p.m., ET/5:00 p.m., PT and closing at 11:00 a.m., ET/8:00 a.m., PT the next day. A custom Facebook app lets fans vote, share whom they voted for and say why, as well as see whom friends voted for.
