Did Sarah Palin really get booed on "Dancing With the Stars?" And which celebrity will be sent home Tuesday? (Get a dance-by-dance recap of all the action in week two of 'Dancing With the Stars.')

Fans of the show are in for a real treat. The big headliner at the elimination show Tuesday night will be Seal. But there is another headline that people are talking about, Sarah Palin, and the ABC show wants to put boo-gate to rest.

Palin had a front-row seat in the ballroom to watch her daughter, Bristol, perform on Monday's episode. Just before host Tom Bergeron sat down to do a brief on-air interview with the former vice-presidential candidate, emphatic boos were heard off camera.

Bergeron says the hit ABC show will air footage during Tuesday's episode that shows that loud boos from the audience were directed at the show's three judges for Jennifer Grey and her partner Derek Hough's score for their Jive, not Palin.

Audience members are encouraged during commercial breaks to voice their feelings about the judges' scores.

Producers plan to show about 45 seconds of uncut footage from another camera angle to clarify for whom the boos were intended.

Meanwhile, for a second week in a row Grey and Hough impressed the audience with their performance. The couple once again topped the leader board with 24 points for a fast moving Jive.

The scores for the top contenders this week were just a few points apart.

"I am so happy to be here," said Grey. "I don't know if I am a top contender yet. I am just happy to be dancing and I am having a great time."

Watch "Dancing With the Stars" at 9 p.m. to see who will be sent home.
