"Dancing with the Stars" is gearing up for a great Season 13. So far Ron Artest (of the L.A. Lakers) has been sent home. We've seen week two performances, and they are down to week two results. Who went home tonight?

Highlights:

The judges wanted to see Ricki Lake and Derek Hough (score of 23) dance again. They jived across the stage with enthusiasm.

The Script (more than 3 million albums sold worldwide)performed For the First Time from their album Science and Faith.

Demi Lovato performed Skyscraper from her new album Unbroken. The song is very intense and raw with emotion. Her new lease on life has certainly given her music a brand new appeal to a wider audience. Many really didn't know much about her before and you can't really forget her after a performance like that.

Saved from elimination:

Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya (scores of 18 out of 30 - 9th place), Ricki Lake and Derek Hough, Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas, J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff, Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke, Nancy Grace and Tristan Macmanus, Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani, and Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were all saved by the "DWTS" fans who voted (and judges scores).

In Jeopardy:

David Arquette and Kym Johnson (score 18 out of 30), Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer, and Elisabetta Canalis. Of those two of them are actually in the bottom two when you combine judges scores and fan votes.

Chaz and Lacey were saved from elimination, and then so were David and Kym. Both Chaz and David are huge stars so it is not surprising they got the fan votes. Plus, everyone wants to see them continually.

Who went home?

Yes, Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy were sent home. It was nice seeing Val on he is the brother to "DWTS'" Maksim. Elsabetta was just beginning to take the competition seriously, and she was getting her footing. But, she is less known than David Arquette so it was really obvious who would be sent home. Many fans thought it would be Carson Kressley who would go home, though he is entertaining - he doesn't seem like a dancer.

Goodbye Elisabetta, you did great and it's hard to get the fan vote. It really is.
