There are five celebrities left on "Dancing With The Stars," and all of them will grace the ballroom floor twice on Monday night.

Each of the five remaining couples has learned a new dance that they haven't yet performed on the show, but they'll also do the "instant dance."

They've rehearsed a specific dance, but without the benefit of knowing the actual music they'll perform. It brings a new meaning to the phrase "thinking on your feet."

There was a setback this week for one of the dancers after an injury during practice. Karina Smiroff tweeted that her partner, Ralph Macchio, suffered a Baker's cyst rupture behind his knee. He lost four days of rehearsal because of the injury.

Macchio said his performance might be rough around the edges, but nothing is going to keep him down.

Former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett was booted last week. She earned praise from the judges on Monday's episode for a Tango that one called "nothing but sophistication, elegance, and confidence," but viewers failed to keep the former Playboy model in the contest.

Macchio and Hines Ward tied for first place.

"Dancing With The Stars" begins at 8 p.m. on ABC7.
