Nancy Grace had a nip slip! 

On Monday night's Dancing with the Stars, the 51-year-old HLN host had a major wardrobe malfunction. After ABC quickly cut away to a static shot of the audience, Grace readjusted her dress and buried her face in partner Tristan MacManus' shoulder.

"On the European version that would be perfectly fine," Tom Bergeron joked.

But the judges were able to see past the partial nudity and appreciate Grace's performance. "How refreshing," Len Goodman said. "That was a proper quickstep. Well done!"

"Nancy, vivacious, alive, and confident," Bruno Tonioli gushed. "It was a bit top-heavy at times, my darling. And I got an eyeful! I couldn't miss that. But it really is great to see you taking over the dance floor and performing."

Carrie Ann Inaba agreed, praising Grace for her "improvement" from the previous week. "You guys are making an incredible team."

So did Grace's nip slip affect her final scores? Seemingly not! She earned a 6 from Inaba, an 8 from Goodman, and a 7 from Tonioli, making her total score 21 out of 30 points.
