Tulsa's Hanson resurrected "MMMBop" for the audience on Monday's "Dancing With the Stars" on ABC.

Four couples - all professional dancers - twirled, bopped and quick-stepped live on stage to the 1997 hit song on the series' "Guilty Pleasure Night."

Hanson also served as the house band and performed other songs including Lionel Richie's "Hello" as the show went in and out of commercials. The band returned to "Dancing" Tuesday night and performed "Give A Little" from its new album "Shout It Out."

The pop group, whose first professional performance was at Tulsa's Mayfest in 1992, has sold more than 10 million records worldwide. They now produce records under their own 3CG label. The brothers, all married, are Isaac, 30, Taylor, 28 and Zac, 25. Between the three, they have eight children.

In other news from Monday's show, Karina Smirnoff and Ralph Macchio mustered 24 points out of 30 after Smirnoff fell during their paso doble, and Kendra Wilkinson's "Revenge of the Stripper" moves on the judges' table earned her and partner, Louis Van Amstel, a $1 bill from judge Bruno and a score of 25.

"Dancing With the Stars" airs at 7 p.m. Mondays and 8 p.m. Tuesdays on ABC, channel 8.
