Wearing a gorilla suit won't save Bristol Palin from her bad dancing. The Alaskan teen wore a very literal costume while shimmying to the Monkees theme song on last night's Dancing With The Stars.

Though judges praised her lighthearted approach to the competition, they were less forgiving of her poor footwork, awarding her the lowest score of the night. The TV theme song episode of the dance competition also featured Brandy's quickstep to the Friends theme song, which earned the highest score of the night.

Television stars Florence Henderson and Audrina Partridge stayed true to their roots, dancing to the Brady Bunch theme song and The Hills theme song respectively, with Henderson receiving a special visit from former co-star Barry Williams, a.k.a., Greg Brady. Frontrunner Jennifer Grey turned in a strong foxtrot to the theme of Married…With Children, though not good enough to reach the perfect tens she won last time around.

The men of the show, Kyle Massey, Rick Fox and Kurt Warner, held steady in the middle of the pack. Fox even took his dance partner Cheryl Burke to meet Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson after she expressed her frustration with his slow dancing. Results, and a performance by Shakira, will air Tuesday night. –AMY LEE
