LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Dancing with the Stars results tonight started with one dancer dominating spoiler predictions and five others in jeopardy. Dancing with the Stars eliminations usually spawn from one cast member clearly struggling in the scoring. But this week, seven of ten dancers were merely just one or two points apart. Compared to previous weeks’ results, this week was far harder for news analyst to predict. But in the end, were they correct?
Dancing with the Stars performances last night left Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus the lowest scoring dancers. Many contended that, in tonight’s results for April 10, 2012, Knight would be sent home. But then there was Sherri Shepherd. While Gladys earned just twenty points on Monday, Sherri and Val Chmerkovskiy got only twenty-one.
Moreover, the rest of the field was close behind. William Levy, Jaleel White, and Mellissa Gilbert all scored twenty-two on Monday. In fact, the big surprise for news last night was Gavin DeGraw. After weeks of dominating predictions for elimination, DeGraw was fifth highest scoring dancer on Monday.
Two weeks ago, Melissa Gilbert and Gladys Knight appeared in possible jeopardy. But many news analysts thought Gilbert would survive tonight.
One person not expected to be eliminated tonight was Gavin DeGraw. On Monday, Gavin scored a twenty-three for his tango with Playboy’s Karina Smirnoff. Len told news “It had flair and it had attitude.” Bruno agreed but said “your frame was bad” calling more like a “turtle at times”. Carrie Ann added, stating “your posture was a little strange.”
But two of the big hits last night were Roshon Fegan and Maria Menounos. Roshon Fegan earned a twenty-six for his Viennese waltz. Len told news that the dance had “panache”. Bruno called it “elegant and romantic”. And Carrie Ann said “it was cute” like a “Disney movie”.
Maria surprised news, earning the same score with her tango. Len said though “it lost a bit of control”. Bruno said “the beauty and attitude” was perfect. And Carrie Ann remarked that the chemistry was electrifying.
The big hit of last night was Donald Driver. But the big miss was Gladys. Len said Gladys’ dance wasn’t bad but “it’s not your worst”. Bruno said it missed and Carrie Ann called it ambitious but not cohesive. Prior to this week, the four lowest scoring dancers were Sherri with seventy points, Gladys with sixty-six, Gavin with sixty-five and Melissa with sixty-four.
Yet in tonight’s results, Gladys didn’t even end up in the bottom three. But in the end, eliminated tonight on Dancing with the Stars was Sherri Shepherd.
