'Dancing With the Stars' goes country with Reba McEntire

reba-mcentire-ABC.jpg Reba McEntire temporarily broke up the tension on Tuesday's (April 6) elimination show when she hit the "Dancing With the Stars" stage to perform two numbers from her certified gold album, "Keep On Loving You."

"Consider Me Gone" was accompanied by"DWTS" pros Lacey Schwimmer and Dmitry Chaplin, while Val Chmerkovskiy, Maks Chmerkovskiy, Snejana Petrova and Edyta Sliwinska (say those names three times fast!) joined her in a dance during "I Want a Cowboy."


But McEntire couldn't keep the elimination away forever. American hero Buzz Alrin got sent home at the end, while "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka just barely escaped losing his extended 15 minutes of fame.
