Tuesday night on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars it was time for the Week 2 results and an update on some audience antics from the night before. After Monday night’s brutal bashing of Michael Bolton’s “Hound Dog”-infused attempt at a jive, many fans wondered if he would be sent to the doghouse as the show’s second eliminated contestant. But the fans had not yet spoken. So who went home this week on Dancing With the Stars?
But first, musical guests abounded as Grammy award winning recording artist Seal performed his latest song, “Weight of My Mistake” and Janelle Monae sang her song “Tightrope”. This season’s first Macy’s Stars of Dance performance was an array of magic and whimsy performed by Airealistic.
Judges Bruno Tonioli was in the hot seat early on, when host Tom Bergeron asked him about the previous night’s Bolton bashing, saying Tonioli’s reputation might be in jeopardy. Tonioli quipped, “FOX is waiting.” Them’s fightin’ words!
Later, co-host Brooke Burke cleared up a few misconceptions about Monday night’s ballroom booing, which many people thought was aimed at audience guest Sarah Palin. Burke revealed an unaired clip from Monday night’s show, which showed the audience start to boo after Tonioli dished an “8” for contestants Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough.
With that matter cleared up (I think), it was time for the week 2 results. The final two couples were Michael and Chelsie and The Situation and Karina. Burke asked Bolton how he was holding up after the previous night’s judges scores and Bolton said.”Last night Bruno was inappropriate and disrespectful.”
Unfortunately for Bolton, he and Hightower were eliminated from the DWTS competition this week
