Despite having the honor of holding the lowest score more times than any other contestant, Bristol Palin has lived to dance another day following Tuesday's elimination show of Dancing With The Stars.

Instead, in a surprising twist, NBA star Rick Fox was ousted after giving his best performance yet. He was gracious in defeat. "It's been amazing. It's been a transformational journey for my relationship with my girlfriend and with my daughters," he said. "What I'll take out of this competition is a friendship with [partner] Cheryl [Burke] and, hopefully, 15 to 20 new dance moves."

For the celebratory 200th episode of the show, producers pulled out some extravagant entertainment. First, Rod Stewart took the stage with his rendition of "I Get a Kick Out of You" before Taylor Swift came on to sing "White Horse" from her Grammy Award-winning album Fearless, as a montage of memorable moments played in the background. Host Tom Bergeron fell to the ground in a fake swoon shortly afterwards. –AMY LEE
