It was a double elimination on "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" this week with Drew Lachey and Helio Castroneves going home.

"I can honestly say I would not change a thing," Season 2 champion Lachey said after finding out he was leaving the competition. Castroneves, another former "Dancing with the Stars" winner, said a series of thank you's before leaving the dance floor.

Kirstie Alley was the other "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" competitor in jeopardy, but her entertaining routine to "Moves Like Jagger," which involved her partner Maks Chmerkovski in a wig, was a hit with the viewers, keeping the actress in the competition for at least one more week.

The double elimination also means Lachey's partner Anna Trebunskaya and Castroneves' Chelsie Hightower are heading home.

After the "best night of dancing we have ever seen," according to head judge Len Goodman, Lachey, Alley and Castroneves were at the bottom of the pack, combining the judges' scores and the audience's votes. Despite a series of underwhelming dances -- and a breakdown on the performance episode this week -- Bristol Palin remains in the competition.

In the midst of the elimination announcements, the "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" cast also had the opportunity to pick the genre of dances their competitors would tackle for next week's performance episode. The options included some of the most difficult types of dances, as well as varieties no one in "Dancing with the Stars" history has had to do. Adding pressure to the already stressful situation, Paula Abdul will be on the judges panel to rate the all-stars' performances.

Kyle Massey of "Dancing with the Stars" Season 11 and his partner Lacey Schwimmer also danced while Frankie Moreno performed during the double elimination episode and chart-topper Karmin performed a mashup of their hits.

Tune in to find out who stays and who goes when "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
