"Dancing With the Stars" will be driven by the numbers Tuesday night. One couple will be sent home after receiving two sets of scores from the judges. The judges being especially tough on the performers in week four of "Dancing With the Stars." They were critiqued on their technique and performance. And nobody made it out unscathed.

"Apparently, the judges are not on our side," said professional dancer Edyta Sliwinska.

"I don't know what we did to them in a past life, but they are not happy," said Turner.

"They were really hard on everybody tonight, really specific," said professional dancer Derek Hough.

"I thought they were really tough, not just us, everything," said professional dancer Louis Van Amstel.

"I worked on those hips and she was wiggling those hips. Even the audience, when she was doing just that, was applauding," said Evan Lysacek.

Week after week viewers have watched Bruno Tonioli be tough on Kate Gosselin, but not this week. The judges cheered her on for her determination, and especially praised Dovolani for bringing Kate to her best dance so far.

"It meant a lot. I was almost crying with their comments," said Gosselin. "The scores whatever, I know that my personal scores and the viewers' scores are going to be higher. People are proud of me and that's all I can ask for."

"At the end of the day it's not all about the judges' scores," said professional dancer Edyta Sliwinska. "As long as you enjoy yourself, as corny as it might sound, you're gonna feel good."

Not everyone will leave feeling good Tuesday night. One more couple will be eliminated when the results show gets underway at 8 p.m. on ABC7.
