Our spoiler-alert results story is abbreviated tonight as I am attending psychic comic Kevin Burke’s 13-month anniversary celebration at the Fitz downtown just as the live East Coast broadcast of Dancing With the Stars ends.

SPOILER ALERT: Please do not read any further if you want to get the full surprise and drama of watching the West Coast tape-delayed broadcast of ABC’s top-rated Dancing With the Stars. But come back after the show to compare notes with us!

Early on, our Las Vegas favorites Donny Osmond, with Kym Johnson, Derek Hough, with Joanna Krupa, and Kelly Osbourne, with Louis Van Amstel, are declared safe, as is Mya, with Dmitry Chaplin.

That means the bottom three are Mark Dacascos, with fill-in pro dancer Anna Trebunskaya, Michael Irvin, with Anna Demidova, and, in a shock, Aaron Carter with Karina Smirnoff. Aaron and Karina scored 29 out of 30 for their jive last night, getting perfect-10 scores from judges Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.

It’s a dance-off between Mark and Aaron, meaning Michael was immediately sent home. So who’s out? It’s back to the Iron Chef America kitchen for Mark, and Aaron survives another week.
