Dancing with the Stars week 3 results show began with a montage of time fillers. The Situation and Karina Smirnoff performed their Foxtrot from last night. Hip hop artist Ne-Yo performed his song One in a Million. Donny Osmond interviewed Dancing with the Stars fans in Las Vegas.
One of the most exciting time fillers were professional dancers Mark Ballas and Val Chmerkovskiy competing both musically and as dancers. Mark played the guitar. Val played the violin. It was fun to watch them dual and showcase their amazing talents. Tom Bergeron said it was like “high noon with spandex.”
Then there was Michael Bolton, back from getting the boot during week 2. He sang for the crowd as a last minute replacement for Susan Boyle who had to cancel. Beautiful red headed dancer Anna Trebunskaya danced along with a partner as Michael sang, complete with a children’s choir. However, we didn’t learn if Michael and Bruno have patched things up.
But it was Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel who were the third couple to be eliminated in Dancing with the Stars week 3 results. The goodbyes were emotional for a woman who probably needed the experience of Dancing with the Stars more than anyone.
Margaret Cho exposed her emotions during the competition. She let us know that she did dance in her past but quit when someone told her she was fat. Hurt feelings of the past continued to plaque Margaret during her rehearsals, and it was difficult for Margaret to let those go.
But Louis Van Amstel said there were not only physical but also emotional changes for Margaret during her Dancing with the Stars experience, all in a good way. At the end, even though Margaret had to leave, it appeared that the experience will change her feelings about herself for the better.
“I thought the judges were really hard on me, but I think you were hard on me because you could see that I am a dancer. For real. And I thank you for that,” said Margaret Cho. “Thank you for the opportunity to let me dance.”
