Dancing With The Stars Recap
In jeopardy this week were Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater, Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas and Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess, the last of whom ended up getting eliminated. The talk show host, who had performed a cha cha to Earth, Wind and Fire’s “Boogie Wonderland,” was hindered throughout the week by book signings and other commitments that took away from his rehearsal time.
Though Tavis was admittedly disappointed to have to say goodbye to the out-of-character experience so soon, he said he has no regrets. “I do not live a life of regret, the art of dance I absolutely love,” he said.
On the results show, Janel Parish and Val Chmerkovkiy were selected by the Twitterverse for the encore performance, as Len Goodman couldn’t chose between their foxtrot to “Call Me Maybe” or Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev’s jive to “Land of 1,000 Dances.”
Other performances of the night included Sia singing “Chandelier” while Dance Moms’ star Maddie Ziegler and Allison Holker danced. Judge Julianne Hough returned to the dance floor for a performance with the male dance pros. There was also a segment that featured the A to Z of Dancing with the Stars lingo.
For next week’s Movie Night, Kevin Hart will replace Len at the judges table. Coming attractions for the week included Betsey Johnson and Tony Dovolani paying tribute to Ghost, Alfonso Ribeiro in Stocky and, of course, Thompson traveling back to her Back to the Future days.
Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday on ABC at 8/7c.
