LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Dancing with the Stars 2014 elimination results tonight March 24, 2014 have revealed multiple shockers. Who were eliminated in the Dancing with the Stars results this evening, was NeNe Leakes fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, and was Diana Nyad eliminated on Dancing with the Stars for 3/24/14? A double elimination results telecast, the shifting of pro dancers, and a moving of the results announcement prompted a big night of dramatic changes for the telecast.
First, Dancing with the Stars 2014 elimination telecast was introduced this Monday with a twist. For the first results, there will be a double elimination. Fans were left in disbelief, as were the dancers, that right out of the gate there would be a double elimination for March 24.
Second, officials told news that the DWTS double elimination would not be announced tonight just before 11 pm EST. Rather someone could be sent home, at anytime, during the telecast. So dancers came into tonight’s telecast prepared to dance their week two routines, get judges’ scores, and get viewers votes (for next week’s elimination). But right off the bat, dancers were told they could be sent home even before dancing their routines.
And if that was not enough, a third twist was added to tonight’s Dancing with the Stars 2014 results telecast. Viewers were told that dancers and stars and set to be switched. Tom Bergeron told viewers that they should take to social media and tweet #DWTS plus the first name of the pairs that you want. So if you want NeNe and Val, you would tweet #DWTSNeneVal.
Tonight marked week two for NeNe Leakes. And like last week, NeNe’s appearance on DWTS left some viewers thinking that she had been fired from RHOA. Such is not the case. Starting with Lisa Vanderpump, Bravo now allows its RH stars to appear on ABC reality shows per permission. NeNe follows in Vanderpump’s steps.
So was Billy Dee Williams eliminated, was Diana Nyad eliminated? Right into the telecast, viewers were told that the lowest scoring dancer from week one, Billy Dee, is advancing. That was the first surprise. And with that, the dance routines started. Drew and Cheryl earned a twenty-one on the jive. Danica and Val picked up a twenty-four on the samba.
Billy Dee and Emma danced the tango, and earned a fifteen gain. Meryl and Maksim conquered the swing with a twenty-five score.
And with that, at the end of the first hour, viewers were told, with no warm-up, that Diana Nyad and Henry Byalikov are suddenly eliminated. Despite that, after their elimination, the pair were given another dance during the telecast to the cha-cha-cha. The two-hour telecast just started its second hour. Who will be the second couple to be eliminated later tonight? Click HERE for that update when it happens in the next sixty minutes.
