His partner, Peta Murgatroyd, insisted he take off his shirt this week. Their Paso Doble got triple nines.

So how many of those were for Driver's physique?

"Probably 26 1/2," said Murgatroyd with a laugh.

During a more freighting moment on the show, Melissa Gilbert had to be transported to a hospital by ambulance. Derek Hough said she was rushed out on a stretcher.

Gilbert hurt herself during her Paso Doble with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Chmerkovskiy followed Gilbert to the hospital.

"That was kind of a surprise for everybody that she hit her head and she got nauseous with concussion-like symptoms," said Chmerkovskiy's brother, Val.

ABC will only say Gilbert was injured and taken to the hospital for observation. The incident is expected to be addresed during Tuesday's show.

Following her hospital visit, Gilbert tweeted at 9:44 p.m.: "I'm alright. Mild concussion and whiplash. Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of."

But Monday, there was a two-way tie for second place. Roshon Fegan and partner Chelsie Hightower scored 26 for their Viennese Waltz, while Maria Menounos and Partner Derek Hough Tangoed their way to 26 despite her dancing with foot problems, including a stress fracture.

Katherine Jenkins and partner Mark Ballas landed in fourth place for their Paso Doble.

Gavin DeGraw upped his game to fifth for his Tango with Karina Smirnoff.

Then there was a three-way tie for sixth among Gilbert with Chmerkovskiy, William Levy with Cheryl Burke and Jaleel White with Kym Johnson.

"Hey, Gene Simmons said I rocked it tonight, so that's all that matters," said White, referring to the performance by Kiss on the show.

Cheryl Burke almost kissed in on the dance floor. Her foot fell out of a shoe, leaving her dangling by a strap.

"I was like, 'Holy crap, what the hell am I going to do?' That's exactly what I was thinking," she said.

Sherri Shepherd and partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy's triple sevens landed them in ninth place.

At the bottom with 20 points was Gladys Knight with her partner Tristan MacManus. They danced to Queen's classic "Bohemian Rhapsody," which judge Carrie Ann called "ambitious."
