On Monday night's show, host Tom Bergeron plugged Chris Brown's Tuesday evening performance on Dancing with the Stars.
"Don't put me in a position where you're asking me to not say something because I won't really do that. Even if it's just a snarky little aside, you know, 'How was your week?' " Bergeron told Ryan Seacrest on KIIS-FM.
Meanwhile the other big controversy at Dancing was comedian George Lopez's recent scathing remarks about Kirstie Alley's struggle with her weight.
But it didn't stop Alley from having a great time dancing with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Alley even gave Chmerkovskiy big smooch on the lips at the end of their dance.
Her good friend Kelly Preston was in the audience to cheer her on. Alley and Chmerkovskiy got a huge ovation after their dance.
"Was the kiss planned or was that spontaneous?" asked host Brooke Burke.
"I think it was spontaneous," said Alley.
After Lopez's cruel remarks, she is getting a lot of support from her fellow contestants.
"Kirstie can definitely handle herself, she's a feisty one," said Wendy Williams.
"Don't mess with anybody in our gang because this is not easy," said WWE star Chris Jericho.
Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson looked elegant in a blue ball gown as she danced the quickstep with partner Louis Van Amstel.
But backstage her tomboy side emerged and she quickly traded her high heels for running shoes.
"Tonight I feel like I really broke out of my shell," she confided.
Brown is expected to perform two songs on the tonight's results show to promote his new album.
