Did Melissa Gilbert Survive 'Dancing with the Stars' Elimination?

Classical Night on Dancing with the Stars featured the season's very first perfect dance, with Maria Menounos and her partner Derek Hough earning a 30 for their "fangtastic" paso doble. But one of their fellow contestants was not as lucky. 

This week, the bottom three was straight from the lower half of the leaderboard: Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert and Jaleel White were all in trouble Tuesday night.

But despite their lowest-scoring performance of the week, Gilbert and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were the first of the lot to be declared safe -- so the two guys and their partners were left to compete in the weekly dance duel.

Pitted against each other, Fegan and partner Chelsie Hightower and White and partner Kym Johnson received nearly identical praise, but after some debate, the judges decided to send the former Family Matters star off the ballroom.

"This is not easy. Side by side you guys are pretty much equal," said Carrie Ann Inaba, but she picked Roshon and Chelsie to stay. Len Goodman agreed with her decision, and Bruno Tonioli made it unanimous in the Disney star's favor.

White was not overly surprised with the judges' decision.

"I really only thought I'd last about three dances this competition," Jaleel said as his time on the show ended, "so to get this far – I've made incredible friends, the fans have been incredible. I love Roshon Fegan ... I'm glad they saved him." 

"Len, give him a 10!" White encouraged.

The remaining contestants competing for the mirror ball trophy are: Donald Driver, Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert, Katherine Jenkins, William Levy, and Maria Menounos.
