It didn’t take us long Tuesday night to come back to terms with the “Dancing with the Stars” results shows. Yes, they still feel like the most long-winded results show out of any on TV. (After all, at least 20% of the show is footage we’ve already seen!)
Nonetheless, we have to give some specific credit to one person this week before we get into the results — Tom Bergeron. From his harassment of Katie Couric to quoting “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” about Maria Menounos’ injury, he may very well be the most-underrated host on all of television. He is the opposite of Steve Jones on “The X Factor” — he is quick on his feet, hilarious, and he keeps the show on time without a problem.
So after some drawn-out results, routines by the pros, Sherri Shepherd having the greatest victory dance in show history when she was declared safe, and even two performances by Sugarland (who seem to be mastering performing on reality results shows at this point), we finally found out the identity of the “bottom 3” (or at least the three that the producers presented at the end, since they may not necessarily be the bottom 3 in literal terms:
Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff – Gavin’s likable, but we have been concerned about his fanbase watching for some time.
Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower – We don’t know about the fan base, but they were actually one of the better performers in terms of scores.
Martina Navratilova and Tony Dovolani – We had her pegged as the first to go from the very first week. and her disaster on Monday night made her nearly a lock to go.
The show was kind enough to reveal that Martina and Gavin were actually the bottom two, and we ended up saying goodbye to the tennis legend. It wasn’t a surprise, but this really was the appropriate exit so that the best competition would be present moving forward.
