LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Dancing with the Stars results 2012 tonight prompted poor predictions for struggling dancer Gladys Knight. Gladys Knight posted low scores on Monday’s telecast, one week after she narrowly survived elimination from Dancing with the Stars. Now Knight is in trouble of possible elimination on tomorrow’s telecast after posting low scores Monday.
Prior to scores on tonight’s Dancing with the Stars, Gladys Knight had narrowly survived being sent home. Last week, DWTS told news that the show would feature two couples (in the Bottom Two) who would do a dance off in front of the judges. Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus survived that dance off.
But tonight, Knight did not redeem herself. Prior to the action this evening, the lowest scoring dancers were Melissa Gilbert with sixty-four points, Gavin DeGraw with sixty-five and Knight with sixty-six.
Melissa Gilbert however came out strong tonight to secure herself a possible advancement for at least one more week. The judges approved of Gilbert’s paso doble, giving it a twenty-two. Len said that he enjoyed it. But Len noted that it was “a little bit and unsure and unsteady”. Bruno told news that Gilbert started strong but ended weak. He said “you messed up the ending”. And Carrie Ann said it was Melissa’s best performance to date but that she needs to exude more self confidence.
Gladys, however, struggled with her tango, earning a mere twenty. Len said the music was “difficult” calling the routine marginal. Bruno said it failed to exude emotion and had no “bit of impact”. And Carrie Ann told news that the routine showed improvement but it “didnâ€™t quite come together.”
In early numbers so far tonight, Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd were the big surprise, shocking news with an impressive twenty-seven score on their paso doble. Before tonight, Donald was in sixth place. The leader in scoring before Monday was Katherine Jenkins (eight-one points), William Levy (seventy-seven) and Roshon Fegan (seventy-four).
Len loved Donald’s routine. He said Without a doubt, your best dance.” Bruno thought the routine showed power and also humor. And Carrie Ann said it was a mixture of the unexplained, some hotness, and some non-traditional moves.
