The Best (Bleeping) Moments from Cher’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Guest Gig

We knew there'd be spray tanning and sequins, but censors, too? Cher's guest judging stint on "Dancing With the Stars" boasted one of the longest censor bleeps ever, and that was just one of many entertaining moments that took place when the iconic singer took over the ballroom for Monday night's live show.

The Cher-themed week featured a soundtrack that included Sonny & Cher classics as well as more recent tunes by the pop legend, but the best sound bites came in the form of Cher's comments. From threatening to "knee" Bruno Tonioli (oh, how we'd love to see that!) to dishing that she doesn't "know how to call out for pizza" (but she has people for that!), Cher totally shared the love - and some high- scoring paddles - during her guest gig on the TV dancing competition.

When Elizabeth Berkley got emotional following her jazz with Val Chmerkovskiy, Cher said: "I was crying this week, too, about this show." (The fill-in judge was vocal about her nervousness over critiquing the celeb dancers.) She elaborated that she liked the "rough parts" of the dance, but part of the exchange had the ABC censors slamming the "bleep" button for a reeeeally long time. We have no idea what she said, but it started with "I like it when…"

After comedian Bill Engvall's disco inferno with Emma Slater, Cher quipped: "I was amazed you could get her up in all those positions." Engvall was right back at her with: "It's a little blue pill."

The "Believe" singer also had some choice words for Jack Osbourne. She called him a "tango-dancing pimp!" She also praised Brant Daughtery's "star quality" and said she loved the actor's connection with pro partner Peta Murgatroyd: "You two had two smiles that went together," she said. The "Pretty Little Liars" star was later eliminated from the show.

Cher also turned back time -- to her first meeting with ex-husband Sonny Bono, thanks to Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani's "I Got You Babe" Viennese waltz. The guest judge said, "I was just enthralled seeing something that I went through that day at that coffee shop with Sonny."

Speaking of turning back time, Cher said if she could do it, she'd go back to the 1980s: "I just had so much fun in the eighties, I cannot tell you," she said. "Maybe too much."

Aw c'mom, Cher. It couldn't have been as much fun as sitting at that judges' table.

"Dancing With the Stars" airs on Mondays at 8:00 p.m. on ABC.
