Tuesday night on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars Week 5 results show it was time to reveal which couple would be sent home after this week’s first ever, bewitching TV Theme Week. And for the first time in weeks, the leaderboard totals didn’t dictate who went home. So who went home on Week 5 of Dancing With the Stars?
But first, in an episode that was filled with infomercial spoofs (and the return of The Hoff) , the musical guests on Tuesday night’s Dancing With the Stars results show included singer Jason Derulo, who performed his song “In My Head” as well as a revamped version of “Georgia On My Mind”. And Latin pop star Shakira sang her song “Loca”.
Early on in the show, underdog Bristol Palin and her partner Mark Ballas were told they were safe. Shocker of all shockers- especially after their awkward monkey dance!
There was a brief period where viewers were bamboozled into thinking that golden couple Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough were in trouble. But as the other contestants were put in the hot seat, it became apparent that a favorite TV mom might be in jeopardy.
Sure enough, 76 year old Florence Henderson was told it was the end of the road for her. This on the same day that iconic TV dad Tom Bosley died. Not a great day for classic TV fans.
The most shocking part of this is that Flo scored very well this week, with 21 points. Bristol Palin only had 18 points, so the fans actually saved Bristol over Flo. Just surprising that a pop culture icon didn’t get the audience vote, but it just goes to show that on Dancing With the Stars you can never be sure how the audience will vote.
