Singer Jewel has some choice advice for Dancing With The Stars’ Melissa Rycroft. Jewel believes the injured dancer should go home if she is too injured to dance.
Jewel wrote on her husband Ty Murray’sblog – “If you’re too hurt to compete, then you can’t compete.” Jewel continues, “I think the rule about ‘judging a rehearsal if the person is too injured to perform’ was weird both times they have used it.”
The rule states that a contestant who is too injured to compete on the live show will be judged based on their rehearsal footage. It was put into practice when Steve-O hurt his back and on Monday when Melissa suffered a rib injury.
Jewel however does sympathize with Melissa adding, “As bad as I felt for Melissa, who I hope feels better and comes back, I’m used to our cowboy athletes that live by the rule: ‘Ride hurt or don’t get a score. It may seem harsh, but it seems like the only way to keep things honest.”
Dancing With The Stars ended last night with this season’s first double elimination! There was no dance off as Holly Madison, Steve-O, and Steve Wozniak found themselves in the bottom three.
Holly and Steve Wozniak ended up getting the boot. Both Steve and Holly had endured injuries since the show began. Holly states, “It was a lot physically harder than I thought it was going to be, but it was so much fun and I’m so glad l got a chance to do it,” Madison said. ” And I still love the costumes – that’s still my favorite part.”
Steve also had a positive attitude about his time on the show. He tells People, “These are like real people. Everybody smiles and is supportive and helpful.” While Steve was delightful on the show, it is nice to see him go home before he turned into DWTS’s Sanjaya.
This week’s dancing with the stars was a week of good dances and high scores! A lot of the stars continued to show improvement. Melissa Rycroft, Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini had a triple tie for the top score with each receiving a 27. Not sure if that had ever happened in the dancing history of DWTS.
Eliminations were last night and Denise Richards found herself in the bottom two along with Holly Madison. Yes we’re also wondering how Steve Wozniak escaped the bottom two, perhaps votewoz.com might explain it.
Denise found herself getting the axe, we take it the fans have yet to get over that whole sleeping with your bestfriend’s husband fiasco that occured a while back with Heather Locklear & Richie Sambora. Better luck next time Denise!

Melissa and Gilles continue to be the two favorites to win the season.

Dancing With The Stars fans have been wondering if daredevil Steve-o would be returning after suffering a back injury. Well we have the update, and Steve-o will indeed be back and dancing tomorrow night.
Steve-o told access hollywood, “I am going to be fine” while also confirming that he will be dancing again come Monday. He claims to have a hematoma, and says his back is sprained.
With the first eliminations happening tonight, Dancing With The Stars was sizzling hot last night as the stars danced hard with most showing improvement from the previous week. The top score once again went to Sex and The City movie hottie Gilles Marini and his partner Cheryl Burke. The two were the first dancing couple this season to get a score of 9 from each of the judges.
The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani brought the heat once again with a flawless salsa. And we must say Melissa looked flawless in her outfit! (You listening Jason?).

It’s safe to say Melissa and Gilles are the two favorites to win the season, with Shawn Johnson coming in a distant third.
