One of ABC’s most popular weeknight shows, “Dancing With the Stars” also known as DWTS has done it again. DWTS is on its 11th season and still, one of the highest watched shows on the air today. For those of you that don’t already know, DWTS is a show where 12 celebrities are paired with 12 professional dancers to compete with each other showcasing their ballroom dancing skills.
On last week’s show, the nine remaining dancers and their partners take on either the romantic rumba or the passionate tango to get not one, but two scores from the judges. This is an all-time first for the show. Dancers got scored first on technique and then on performance, for a total of 60 possible points.
On the top of the leader boards with 52 points were Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya with their snazzy and lively tango. All three judges thought that their performance was both entertaining and well danced. Right behind them in second place were Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough who danced their way to a score of 50 with the best rumba on the show so far. Judges said Nicole had gorgeous lines and extensions.
Coming in last place in points were Kate Gosselin and her partner Tony Dovoloni, they only scored a total of 32 points. But having a low score doesn’t mean you will be voted off in the elimination round. If a contestant has a good fan base that calls in and votes for them, then they can still come out on top and stay in the competition.
Everyone expected Kate Gosselin to get the boot since she has continually struggled with the dances, but she must have enough fans out there to keep her safe. Unfortunately, Aiden Turner, a soap star, and his partner Edyta Sliwinska eliminated, due to not having enough fan response.
That just goes to show that you can never guess who is going home and whose going to stay. That’s one reason I like the show, it’s excited and entertaining every week.
