Color us shocked that Wynonna Judd went home on Dancing With the Stars Season 16 Week 3. We did not expect the first eliminated contestant of 2013 to be a country superstar.
That said, we must admit that we're pretty pleased with the result. It's not personal — we have a ton of respect for Wynonna, and we adore her pro partner, Tony Dovolani — but she did have the clear worst performance of the week, in our opinions (and the judges agreed with us, for once!). Apparently America agreed, too. We're surprised, because we expected Wynonna's fan base to carry her further. Maybe they decided it looked like the country legend wasn't having much fun?
Whatever happened, we think it bodes well for the season that the dancer with the lowest score of the week went home. Maybe that means viewers are voting for who they like to watch perform, and not who they like in general.
That said, Wynonna wasn't the only dancer who's struggling, and she did appear to be trying. So, are you glad she was eliminated, or were you hoping someone else would be the first to be voted off? Vote with our reaction buttons, and share your thoughts in the comments below!
