It turns out Tom DeLay wasn't Monday night's only injured dancer on "Dancing With the Stars." Plus, we saw our first 10s in just the third week of this competition.With their romantic Rumba, Mya and her partner absolutely pleased two of the three judges for a first-place finish.

On being congratulated for the first 10s of the season, Mya replied: "Oh yeah. My feet are killing me. I'm in slippers down here. Sorry. But, yes, I'm very happy about that."

Also happy is Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin and her partner. They Rumbaed their way to second place with the judges, one point behind the leaders.

"I think I tried to set this choreography with a theme of water to make her feel more comfortable," said Natalie's partner Alec Mazo. "So maybe that worked. So maybe from now on, we will have some water in every single routine."

Joanna Krupa finished third, with her partner joking about what may happen next.

"And next week we're actually doing the Lambada, which is the forbidden sexy dance, so I'm actually going pantless next week," declared Joanna's partner, Derek Hough.

Donny Osmond and his partner tied for fourth, but before they got their scores, Donny lightened the mood by joking around with judge Bruno Tonioli.

Asked if he would do it again, Donny replied: "Yeah, I probably would. I enjoyed it. I don't know if Bruno enjoyed it, but I certainly enjoyed it."

"He seemed like he enjoyed it," said Donny's partner, Kym Johnson.

"Yeah, I think he liked my cologne," said Donny.

Aaron Carter and his partner also landed in fourth after Aaron landed on his knee in rehearsal, injuring himself.

"I just tried to push through it as much as possible and, you know, I really didn't consider my injury something, you know, to prevent me from doing a good performance," said Aaron.

But the really injured dancer was Tom DeLay who Sambaed with stress fractures in both feet.

"I go to the doctor in the morning, get his prognosis and we'll just see what happens tomorrow night," said Tom.

And one point behind DeLay, in last place, Michael Irvin, who thought he had a great routine.

"And it hurts, you know," said Michael. "People think, 'Oh, he's a big football player, he's OK.' That hurts to stand in front of people and hear them, especially when you worked as hard as we worked this week."

Someone goes home during the results show Tuesday night at 9 p.m. abc7.
