Tonight on Dancing with the Stars the contestants entered week 2 of their live performances.
And for the second week running, Jennifer Grey and partner Derek Hough made it to the top of the score board. Grey was previously dubbed as the front-runner of season 11. The jive left them out of breath, and pleased the judges, who gave them a score of 24 out of 30.
The judges weren’t so kind to Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower. With Bruno Toniolo calling their jive performance the “worst in 11 seasons”. Resulting in Len calling Bruno’s statement unfair. Bolton received the lowest score of the night with 12 out 30. Margaret Cho and Louis van Amstel performed the jive scoring 18 out of 30, for the next to lowest score of the night.
Audrina Patridge brought her A-game and surprised everyone by getting second place for the night. She and Tony Dovolani scored a 23, out of possible 30 for their quickstep. The former Hills star is making significant improvement, and appears to be true competition for the stars.
Disney star Kyle Massey and partner Lacey Schwimmer received the third highest score of the night with 22 out of 30. Tying scores with Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas. Sarah Palin was there to support her daughter, and seated in the front row. She was expected to be at last week’s premiere of Dancing with the Stars, but showed up in time to help promote her daughter for potential viewer votes.
Judges Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli had praise for others like Bristol Palin, but told her she needed to bring more drama. While Carrie Ann Inaba compared Bristol to her favorite dancer, Kelly Osbourne.
