Most notably, Peloton star Cody Rigsby and partner Cheryl Burke's salsa was judged based on their taped rehearsal at the DWTS practice studio which was filmed "last week before Burke's positive COVID test" was known. Both performers were not present in the ballroom after Burke announced the night before that she tested positive for breakthrough COVID.

"Out of an abundance of caution, Cody Rigsby's not in the ballroom with us tonight," host Tyra Banks said at the top of the show. "However, this does not mean they're out of this competition."

Their salsa earned them a 24 out of 40.

Next week will be the first themed night of season 30 with the stars dancing to music by Britney Spears.
