"I couldn't honestly look at any of those other couples and say they should have gone before me," said former DWTS competitor Adam Carolla. "I mean, they're really good.>"

Adam Carolla used comedy and creativity on "Dancing with the Stars." And when he got the ax, his partner, Julianne Hough, got a little emotional.

"I do not cry," said Hough. "That was really heartfelt."

"She's more of a puncher than a crier," said Carolla. "I can tell you that firsthand."

Priscilla Presley and Louis Van Amstel found themselves in the bottom two. Presley says it was just painful.

"When they said we were in the bottom two, we went, 'Oh my god -- This can't be -- give us another chance, please!" said Presley. They got it, and they'll rumba next week.

"So it's kind of tango but a lot slower," said Van Amstel. "Lots of love, lots of romance and ... mmm."

"Oh my gosh!" said Presley. "Well, whatever it takes."

Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas will rumba next week.

It's the samba for Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough.

And for Marlee Matlin and Fabian Sanchez?

"Instead of the samba, we're doing the 'sam-bum,'" said Fabian Sanchez.

"Samba!" said Marlee Matlin.

It's the rumba for Cristian de la Fuente and Cheryl Burke.

The two, who are always nervous on Tuesday nights, felt what being eliminated might be like during Tuesday afternoon's dress rehearsal.

"He wore his T-shirt that said -- what did it say?" asked Burke.

"'Torture the Latino Tuesday,'" said de la Fuente.

"'Torture the Latino Tuesday,' and during dress rehearsal, we got eliminated!" said Burke.

"Yeah, so I know how it feels like," said de la Fuente. "And I don't want to feel that for real."

Rehearsals for week five begin bright and early Wednesday morning.
