So … online voting has shifted … jaws drop … what does that mean? There is no Dance Duel tonight, as we previously expected. That’s going to start next Tuesday. So whoever is at the bottom tonight is heading to Jimmy Kimmel and then just to that great Mirror Ball in the sky.
If we’re going to be shocked, does that rule out Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus, the lowest scoring couple? Or would it be shocking to see them leave because they are so popular? Would anyone NOT be shocking?
What if it’s one-time frontrunners Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas? Mark has bad luck when it comes to fans just expecting his talented partners to be safe (flashbacks to Sabrina Bryan and, to a lesser extent, Kristin Cavallari!). What if it’s Sherri Shepherd and Val Chmerkovskiy, who were close to the bottom with a score of 21 out of 30 and danced first, which is occasionally the kiss of death? Could it be Jaleel White and Kym Johnson, despite their good dancing, because they have been all over the tabloids and DWTS never showed their rehearsal spat, even though they show every other dramatic event that happens?
Or maybe the elimination won’t shock anyone because we’re already expecting the unexpected. Whatever happens, great tease, Tom!
Find out who is getting sent home on Dancing With the Stars tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
