Viewers can vote for their favorite female celebrities tonight. Those votes will be added to the judges' scores and the results will be revealed on Wednesday's show along with the results for the male celebrities who competed Monday night. Two celebrities will be eliminated on Wednesday's show.
To close Tuesday's show, the women were split into two groups of four to perform a "relay" dance-off. Each woman and her partner did a short dance which lead into another couple's dance. The side-by-side dancing helped the judges compare the celebrities. The points each dancer earned in the relay round were added to the points earned for the individual dances.
In the Cha Cha "relay" dance, the judges ranked singer Mya first for an extra 10 points, singer Kelly Osbourne earned 8, actress Melissa Joan Hart got 6 and singer Macy Gray received 4.

Here's a recap of Tuesday's show:
Before her dance, Kelly Osbourne, daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne, said the word to describe her dancing would be "crap." The judges disagreed giving the singer and her partner a 23 for their Viennese Waltz. Dad and mom Sharon, a judge on "America's Got Talent," were moved to tears watching their daughter dance. Kelly ran to the side of the stage and hugged her parents at the end of her performance.
Len Goodman, 8: "It was the best Viennese Waltz of the night."
Bruno Tonioli, 8: "I cannot believe my eyes. The wild child rock princess transformed into a vision of grace."
Carrie Anne Inaba, 7: "Mom and dad are going to be very proud. That was beautiful."
Model Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough received a 24 for their bold salsa and helped bring a smile to grumpy judge Len Goodman's face.
Len Goodman, 8: "At last we've seen a hot, smoking salsa."
Bruno Tonioli, 8: "That was sexy. That was saucy."
Carrie Anne Inaba, 8:"I thought it was hot."
Singer Macy Gray and Jonathan Roberts earned a 15 for their Viennese Waltz. While saying the footwork was poor, the judges agreed that they were captivated by Macy Gray.
Bruno Tonioli, 5: "It was like watching a child taking his first steps into a scary new world."
Len Goodman, 4: "I can only say this: If I was at home I'd be voting for you."
Carrie Anne Inaba, 6: "That was fascinating. Your technique, I can't even go there."
Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin and Alec Mazo earned 19 for their salsa.
Bruno Tonioli, 6: "You have some fantastic shapes... at times you freeze mid-performance."
Carrie Anne Inaba, 7: "You're a diamond in the rough."
Len Goodman, 6: "I'm a little bit bewildered." Len was disappointed that the women weren't "knocking his socks off" with their spicy interpretations of the sexy salsa. Carrie Anne suggested that Len's socks were still on only because he was "old."
Model Kathy Ireland and her partner Tony Dovolani earned 16 points for their salsa. Kathy said Tony was teaching her to dance in heels while she struggled to even walk in heels.
Bruno Tonioli, 5: "You can sell almost anything, but you didn't sell the salsa."
Carrie Anne Inaba, 6: "Your hips weren't moving very much... loosen up."
Len Goodman, 5: "It was far too careful. You've got to come out and really sizzle."
Singer Mya and her partner Dmitry Chaplin received 21 points for their Viennese Waltz. Judge Len Goodman scolded Dmitry for not teaching proper technique for the dance. Len said the couple broke the hold too often. Fellow judges Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Anne Inaba disagreed.
Bruno Tonioli, 8: "The girl was magnificant."
Carrie Anne Inaba, 8: "Way to set the bar tonight."
Len Goodman, 5: "This was not a Viennese Waltz."
Melissa Joan Hart, star of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," and her partner Mark Ballas earned 18 for their Viennese Waltz. The judges thought Melissa was tense and nervous.
Bruno Tonioli, 6: "It was prim. It was proper. It was adequate, but it failed to ignite."
Carrie Anne Inaba, 6: "It felt a little choppy, there's a definite elegance."
Len Goodman, 6: "I thought your hold was good... your feet are no good."
"Entourage" actress Debi Mazar and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy scored 16 points for their salsa.
Bruno Tonioli, 5: "Your timing went all over the place... but I hope you stay because you have a lot to show."
Carrie Anne Inaba, 6: "I think you have a lot of guts... I expected a lot of sass."
Len Goodman, 5: "It was full of potential... but... there's a lot of work to do."
