No one fell off a chair during Tuesday's show, but one star did strip down to his tighty whiteys.

It was tough to top Carrie Ann Inaba's enthusiasm on Monday night, when she got so excited about Gilles Marini's rumba she toppled off of her judge's chair.

But Team Gangnam Style tried.

On Tuesday's Part 2 of Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars "guilty pleasures" week, four celebs from Monday night had to perform a team dance.

Kirstie Alley and pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Gilles Marini and pro Peta Murgatroyd, Kelly Monaco and pro Val Chmerkovskiy, and Emmitt Smith and pro Cheryl Burke goofed, stripped and galloped their way through the crazy freestyle dance, capped off by Gilles and Peta thrusting around the ballroom in white towels. What's better than that?

"That's the most fun I've had in 15 seasons," declared host Tom Bergeron.

"That's the craziest number I've ever seen," said judge Len Goodman. "It was fun!"

Bruno Tonioli said, "Gilles, give me that towel, I'm wetting myself." Gilles then pulled it off, revealing tighty whiteys.

Carrie Ann called it "a hot mess that turned into crazy, fun insanity." The high jinks brought 9s from the judges for a 27. The 27 for each of those celebs was added to the individual scores from Monday night.

So here's how the stars now stack up:

Sabrina Bryan picked So This is Love from Cinderella as her guilty pleasure song so that she could waltz like a princess. "Being fast and fierce is so much easier," she complained during rehearsals. In a Disney blue gown, she was swept around the floor by Louis Van Amstel as her Prince Charming, until the clock struck midnight and she had to run off, leaving one sparkly shoe behind. Len "loved the story" and the "flow of it all." Bruno waved his arms all around mimicking her, calling it "cartoonish and delicious." Carrie Ann said it was "light, airy, gorgeous, and I think you're in for a happy ending." She winked at Sabrina. Scores: 10, 9.5, 9.5 = 29 + 29.5 = 58.5.

Melissa Rycroft seemed to be protecting her neck when it came to dipping as she danced a Frankenstein-themed number with partner Tony Dovolani to Britney Spears' Toxic. While she looked stiff at times, the crowd appreciated her efforts and gave her and Tony a standing ovation. Len said it was "crisp and sharp." Bruno said, "That wasn't toxic, it was intoxicating." He said her "topline" could have been better, but blamed her injury. Carrie Ann echoed him. Scores: 9, 9, 9 = 27 + 29.5 = 56.5.

Gilles Marini's scores: 29.5 + 27 = 56.5.

Shawn Johnson worried that the rumba would not be her dance. She likes to flip and be acrobatic and, as an Olympic athlete, she is trained to not show emotion. Could she turn on the drama with Derek Hough? To My Heart Will Go On, Shawn flung her blond locks around in sharp moves and watched Hough twirl off the edge of the stage, as if sinking off the Titanic in a sweet ending. Bruno said it was "absolutely stunning." Carrie Ann said, "I feel like a proud mama watching you. You have grown so much." But she criticized her for a lift. Derek defended the move, saying it was "more like a catch." Len then surprised everyone by saying, "For me it was a Dickens novel. I had Great Expectations and got Bleak House." The crowd gasped. "It wasn't a rumba!" he said, over the moans and arguing from Bruno. Scores: 9, 8, 10 = 27 + 29.5 = 56.5.

Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff, who showed off her six-pack abs during the rehearsal segment, shimmied with a rockin' samba to Rick James' Give It To Me Baby. Carrie Ann loved Apolo's legwork, but said, "I'm not feeling it." The crowd booed, but we have to agree. Said Len, "I thought that was terrific." Bruno said Apolo was "sexy" and his "timing was good." Scores: 8.5, 9.5, 9 = 27 + 29.5 = 56.5.

Emmitt Smith's scores: 29 + 27 = 56.
Kirstie Alley's scores: 25.5 + 27 = 52.5.
Kelly Monaco's scores: 24.5 + 27 = 51.5.
