Shocker! 'Dancing' Sends Home Beloved Star

At the start of Tuesday's Dancing With the Stars results show, Gladys Knight was at the bottom of the leaderboard with the lowest scores from Monday's rock performance night.

Most of you felt she should be sent packing.

So did the beloved singer wind up on a midnight train out of the ballroom?

First, we were treated to another KISS song and an update on Melissa Gilbert.

Host Tom Bergeron announced that the Little House on the Prairie star, 47, suffered a "mild concussion" during her dance Monday night, which she had tweeted about earlier in the day. "She is taking a rest day," he said (she wasn't in the ballroom), adding that "she'll be able to compete" next week, and she was deemed safe.

Soon after her news, Gavin DeGraw was told he was safe right away, too. "I can guarantee you Gavin's will not be the only look of surprise tonight," said Bergeron.

Maria Menounos was deemed safe (no surprise). Jaleel White was deemed safe (not a surprise in my book, although Dancing alum Carson Kressley predicted him on Good Morning America as being in jeopardy).

And Gladys was deemed safe!

Donald Driver, who was at the top of the leaderboard, told co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, "I'm nervous." Roshon Fegan also said, "I'm not feeling too safe."

Turned out Driver had nothing to worry about; he was safe.

Katherine Jenkins and USA TODAY blogger Mark Ballas were told they were safe, and they jumped around the stage in happiness.

William Levy was deemed safe (prompting fans to squeal).

It came down to Roshon and Sherri Shepherd. "I love this whole experience," said Sherri before the news was delivered, choking up. Shepherd has long wanted to be on the show and has always declared her love for it, along with her pride and joy about being able to finally be part of the cast.

"I thought we were pretty good," said Roshon, saying he didn't expect to be in the bottom two.

"All of us judges, we are in total shock," said judge Len Goodman.

The star "unbelievably" - Bergeron's word - sent home: The View co-host Sherri Shepherd.

"I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream I have always had," said Sherri, tears streaming down her face. "I want to say to everyone out there: That thing that scares you the most... run towards it, because it's so amazing!"
