Monday's "Dancing with the Stars" competition featured individual dances from the seven remaining celebrities and their professional dance partners as well as two group dances.

Sixty points were the most possible for Monday's show. Monday's top scoring celebrity was model Joanna Krupa with 55 points. Singer Aaron Carter received 53 points. Singers Kelly Osbourne and Donny Osmond each had 52. Singer Mya earned 50 points. NFL star Michael Irvin had 47 points. "Iron Chef Chairman" Mark Dacascos was at the bottom with 43.

Monday's points will be added to viewers' votes and the celebrity with the lowest point total will be eliminated on Tuesday's results show. The second and third lowest scoring celebrities will compete against each other in the dance-off in which one of them will be eliminated by the judges.

Team tango featuring Donny Osmond, Kelly Osbourne and Joanna Krupa earned 28 points for their group effort.

Carrie Ann Inaba, 9: "It was perfect. It was great. But why did you put in a lift?"

Len Goodman, 9: "Obviously this was a much more superior dance."

Bruno Tonioli, 10: "Incredible. Kelly you found your mojo."

Mya, Mark Dacascos, Aaron Carter and Michael Irvin were grouped together as team Paso Doble. They each earned 24 points for the group dance.

Bruno Tonioli, 8: "Strong. Powerful. Dramatic. You did all that... At times you lost a little bit of sync."

Carrie Ann, 8: "It was a bit basic for this stage. Mark, though, I think you redeemed yourself."

Len Goodman, 8: "As it went along the routine got better and better, so well done to you all."

Here's a recap of Monday's individual dances:

Singer Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff earned 29 points for their jive. Head judge Len Goodman even dusted off his "10" paddle after this performance.

Bruno Tonioli, 10: "Aaron you kicked ass... Your best performance."

Carrie Ann Inaba, 9: "You're like a little roadrunner... It was really, really excellent."

Len Goodman, 10: "That had enough energy to light up Hollywood... It was wild but it was clean."

Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough received 27 points for their rumba.

Carrie Ann Inaba, 9: "You dance at your edge... I love watching you."

Len Goodman, 9: "I think that more or less ticked all of our boxes."

Bruno Tonioli, 9: "You are a love goddess."

Singer Mya and Dmitry Chaplin earned 26 points for their foxtrot.

Len Goodman, 7: "Too many gimmicks."

Bruno Tonioli, 9: "This foxtrot perfectly captured the glamorous aura of Hollywood's golden age. Your timing was fantastic."

Carrie Ann Inaba, 9: "Len is officially smoking crack...I loved it."

Kelly Osbourne and partner Louis Van Amstel earned 24 points for their salsa. They had all three judges standing to applaud Kelly's energy. Bruno Tonioli was motivated to stand on the table and demonstrate his hip action.

Carrie Ann Inaba, 8: "You were unafraid of the dance... Very. Good. Job."

Len Goodman, 8: "That's the first time I think you've really controlled your nerves and come out and given us a full performance."

Bruno Tonioli, 8: "You let it out... That's the way to go."

Donny Osmond and partner Kym Johnson earned 24 points for their difficult quickstep despite Donny admitting that he made five mistakes in the dance. The judges noticed the errors but applauded Donny's effort.

Bruno Tonioli, 8: "As a performer you're solid as a rock."

Carrie Ann Inaba, 8: "Your footwork was very light. You went wrong a couple — maybe four — times." Donny fessed up to making five missteps.

Len Goodman, 8: "It was a full-on quick step... You really attacked the dance."

Michael Irvin and Anna Demidova earned 23 points for their foxtrot. Michael wanted purple outfits to remind him of "Barney," which he enjoys watching with his kids. The judges loved his elegant costume design.

Len Goodman, 8: "I'm so glad you hung around... tonight this foxtrot (was) brilliant."

Bruno Tonioli, 7: "Your musicality has improved."

Carrie Ann Inaba, 8: "I honestly do not know how you do this... tonight's performance was gracious. It was fluid. It had great content."

"Iron Chef America's" Mark Dacascos danced the samba with Anna Trebunskaya instead of his usual partner Lacey Schwimmer, who was sick with the flu. The change in partners and limited practice time was reflected in Mark's low score of 19.

Carrie Ann Inaba, 6: "That was a mess."

Len Goodman, 7: "You have a had tough week... I didn't find it terrible... You coped very well."

Bruno Tonioli, 6: "It was a little like watching 'Kung Fu Panda' doing the samba in the 'Planet of the Apes.'"
