The celebrities got to pick their tunes on Monday’s edition of Dancing with the Stars, so the numbers were as varied as a bikini song samba to a Cyndi Lauper-inspired foxtrot.

Here were the scores:

Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff. It seemed like an awfully big challenge – dancing the cha-cha to “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” – but a uniform-clad Randy appeared to have a ball gyrating his hips to the crazy beat. “What a great way to start the night,” said Judge Julianne Hough. “I think we have a new hip action hero,” added Bruno Tonioli. Score: 28 out of 40

Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy. Determined to make her dance look “tidy,” the Pretty Little Liars star pulled off a gorgeous foxtrot, despite it not including many traditional movements, complained Hough. “But screw tradition because I loved it!” she said. Added Judge Carrie Ann Inaba, “This week you gave us effortless elegance.” Score: 34

Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev. The timing of her jive was a little behind but the Switched at Birth actress was still a quick-footed stunner in her leopard dress. “You had the incandescent appeal of Ann-Margret in her prime,” said Tonioli. “The ladies are killing it tonight!” exclaimed Inaba. Score: 35

Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater. His samba was just a whole lotta arm-raising, but the judges were largely forgiving. “You put the sin in syncopation,” said Judge Len Goodman. “It was wild and wacky. I don’t know why, but I did like it.” Score: 24

Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess. The clip shown revealed how his rehearsal time was compromised because of his busy schedule. As a result, the talk show host looked pretty stressed doing the cha-cha. “I know you had a tough week and it showed a bit,” said Goodman. “It lacked a bit of polish.” “You have to be lighter on your feet,” added Tonioli. Score: 28

Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson. The duo got jiggy with a samba that brought the crowd to a roar, but the judges wanted less “Alfonso” jam and more rhythm. “Your charisma and feel for music is unique and extraordinary,” said Tonioli, but the “samba is a very specific motion we have to see.” Score: 32

Bethany Mota and Derek Hough. The YouTube star complained of an ankle injury, but it didn’t seem to hurt her pretty foxtrot that included her striking a pose on a bass violin. “That was a great number,” said Goodman. “The best I’ve seen tonight.” “Dance is about telling a story,” Inaba said. “You understand what each move is saying.” Score: 33

Betsey Johnson and Tony Dovolani. The adorable designer wowed with a foxtrot that included an impressive leg lift at the end. “All hail queen Betsey!” said Inaba. “I had no idea who you were under all that fun stuff you did before. What a transformation!” “Last week was a night to forget,” Goodman said. “Tonight is a night to remember.” Score: 28

Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Cheryl Burke. A rumba is definitely up this sexy man’s alley. Nice gaze in Cheryl’s chest at the end, too, Antonio! “There is no secret to this show,” said Goodman. “You just have to be better the following week and that’s what you did tonight.” “You have a very nice butt,” added Tonioli. “Use it even more.” Score: 31

Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd. Flashy in hot pink, Tommy scored with his fierce salsa prowess and open shirt. Plus, he vowed to “save the world” if America votes for him! “It was f–––ing fabulous,” said Hough. “You are proving that age is a state of mind. You are as young as you feel.” Score: 28

Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker. The actor brought the sexy that included a big buss on his partner, but the judges thought his cha-cha lacked. “You brought dangerous character but there wasn’t enough cha-cha,” Inaba said. “I like sharp in the cha-cha but this was jerky,” added Goodman. “There was very little content.” Score: 30

Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas. The Duck Dynasty dame jazzed out to a country tune that gave her a chance to defy her daddy’s conservative tendencies. “Was your dad okay with that routine?” Inaba asked. “Because that was a little edgy. But I thought you killed it.” “You are a natural performer,” added Hough. Score: 31
