LOS ANGELES – Marie Osmond says the Bible inspired her return to ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" following the death of her father last week.
Osmond said on Monday's live broadcast that she found comfort in the Bible when she randomly opened a passage from Ecclesiastes.
"It said ... there's a time to mourn and a time to dance," she said. "And I felt like it was almost from my dad saying, `This is your time to dance."'
She missed last week's elimination show after her father, George Osmond, patriarch to the Osmond family's singing group, The Osmond Brothers, died at his home in Provo, Utah. He was 90.
The 48-year-old singer received Monday night's lowest score: 49 out of 60 possible points from the judges. Race car driver Helio Castroneves had the highest score, earning perfect 10s for his quickstep.
Viewer votes were to be factored in on Tuesday night's results show to get the final tally. One contestant was to depart, trimming the competition to four celebrities.
The winner gets a mirror-ball trophy -- and bragging rights.
