— -- Fashion designer Betsey Johnson was voted off “Dancing With the Stars” tonight during an emotional show dedicated to the stars’ most memorable years and in which, for the first time ever, the viewers were able to act as the guest judge by casting votes live.

The viewing audience had two minutes from the start of each routine to register their vote. The audience’s combined guest judge vote was counted alongside the other judges’ scores, in addition to the regular public’s vote.

At the end of the program, Johnson and NASCAR legend Michael Waltrip were both in the bottom two, meaning they were both in jeopardy of going home.

Johnson had danced a jive that earned her 29 points – putting her in the middle of the pack, and Waltrip performed a quickstep for which he earned 25 points, the second-lowest score of the night.

The colorful fashion designer was full of gratitude, thanking the show, her pro partner, Tony Dovolani, and her fans.“This has been the best wonderful time … it’s just been a trip, a big trip, a triple trip! Thank you,” she said.

Mixed martial artist and actor Randy Couture was voted off the show last week.

Tonight was the fifth episode in the ABC show’s 19th season. Nine celebrities return to compete next week.

Tonight’s Routines

Janel Parrish: The actress’ rumba recalled the year 2002, when she moved from Hawaii to Los Angeles to pursue her acting dream with the encouragement of her first vocal coach, who died of breast cancer. Head judge Len Goodman was absent, but Parrish’s routine impressed judges Bruno Tonioli, Julianne Hough and Carrie Ann Inaba. “You look like an exotic angel and you took me to the Garden of Eden,” Tonioli said. Inaba said the performance was “absolutely breathtaking.” Hough commended Parrish’s technique and said she performs “from the heart.” Parrish earned three 9s from the judges and another 9 from the audience as guest judge, for a total of 36 out of a possible 40 points.

Jonathan Bennett: The actor’s samba honored his parents, who died at separate times within the past year. Judges found the performance lacking. Tonioli said the samba spirit was present but said Tonioli failed to nail the characteristic easy samba bounce, adding: “You were off timing and flat-footed.” Inaba believed the performance was “very one dimensional,” while Hough found it a bit erratic. Bennett earned three 6s from the judges and another 6 from the audience for a total of 24 points.

Betsey Johnson: Judges were tickled by the fashion designer’s jive in honor of her daughter, Lulu. “That was phenomenal … you nailed every step of that dance,” Inaba told Johnson. Hough commended the designer for giving her best every single week, and Tonioli was also full of praise for her effort. “I have to say, keeping up with the jive is hard for anyone and you did it very, very well up until the point where you went wrong,” he said. Johnson earned two 7s and an 8 from judges and a 7 from the audience for a total of 29 points.
