How's this for an excuse? After the Rock and Roll edition of Dancing with the Stars, Derek Hough blamed a wardrobe malfunction on the poor performance he and Jennifer Grey turned in.
"This is what happened tonight," Derek told E! after the show. "The dance was going well, I told [Jennifer] to get fierce, and she was all in it. And then at the end, this eyeliner got in my eye! Then I flew off and she was off balance and it was a mess. So basically, the moral of the story is don't wear eyeliner if you're a guy." Something tells us Adam Lambert would disagree.
Meanwhile, for Bristol Palin, the night was a rousing success. Gushed a proud Mark: "She did really well with this one. Out of all the dances, this was the most natural for her." And Bristol agreed: "I'm definitely more confident with the tango. I've realized that if I don't go all out, I'm going to go home."
