It was time to get down with Motown on Monday night's Dancing With the Stars!

There was plenty of shimmy, shake and smiles, but not everyone was happy with their critiques. So who felt slighted by the judges' comments and wasn't afraid to let us know exactly how they felt about it? The stars spilled to us exclusively after the show...

It seems this season of Dancing With the Stars is flying by. With only eight contestants left, everyone is giving their all to stay out of the bottom two and avoid the season's newest twist: the dance duel.

One couple who was not so stoked about their dance evaluations was William Levy and Cheryl Burke. Their rumba fell flat with judge Len Goodman, but Cheryl gave us the inside scoop on why they didn't get an enthusiastic response.

"Len just hasn't had sex in years," she tells us. "Joking! Just joking, Len!" Yowza!

Roshon Fegan and partner Chelsie Hightower took the brunt of the harsh comments and vented their frustration to us backstage. "We got smacked around," Roshon says. "We got beat up a little bit."

"We're definitely a little disappointed," Chelsie adds. "We worked really hard on this dance and you hope you will get good remarks from the judges, especially when you put in the work, and I thought it was one of Roshon's best dances! So it kinda sucks, but it is what it is."

But bounce-backs happen all the time on DWTS. One couple that knows a thing or two about that is last week's duel champs, Jaleel White and partner Kym Johnson. They ended the night with the second highest score and were elated to be back on the right dance track.

"We are the comeback kids!" Kym tells us. "We went to the bottom and were nearly out of the show last week in the dance duel. To come back and get top scores is just incredible. Being in the dance duel gave us a different appreciation."

Says Jaleel: "Once you've been there, you know, it lurks," Jaleel says. "I felt like Russell Crowe in Gladiator. I just felt like screaming to the audience 'Are you not entertained?' "

Another elimination is looming, who do you think should go home? Who are you voting for? Let us know in the comments!
