We start off Dancing with the Stars with a few random dance numbers to more of Motown’s greatest gems.
After performances by Natasha Bedingfield and the Macy’s Stars of Dance, we have Boys II Men on the stage. Sometimes I’m a little confused about the purpose of these results shows. They just don’t have much to do with the DWTS, in my humble opinion. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the extra dances and musical guests, maybe I just don’t have the patience for it when I’m waiting for them to get on with the eliminations?
The “Bottom Two” couples become Gladys and Tristan vs. Roshon and Chelsie, who must dance in front of the judges in a dance duel. The couples dance the jive for this one and they both did a great job, but the judges have to pick only one. Carrie Ann and Len praised them both for their efforts. Len tells Gladys again that she dances with her heart, just like she sings. Bruno tells her it’s been an honor to have her on the show.
When it’s all over, Bruno and Len choose to save Roshon and Chelsie, which means Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus are eliminated. Gladys has had low numbers all along, but I was secretly hoping she’d turn it around and stay longer.

Despite scoring pretty well on Monday night and landing in the middle of the pack, it seems Elisabetta just didn’t have enough fan support to keep her on the show.
And while the show kept Chaz in the bottom three before announcing his safety, host Tom Bergeron announced he was not really in the bottom three or at risk of going home. Perhaps Elisabetta was sent packing because viewers were a little turned off over what seemed to be an attitude by her towards her partner during Monday night’s rehearsals footage.
Elisabetta, 33, however took her elimination rather well. “For me, it was a gift every day staying here, really. It was a great adventure,” she said, thanking those who voted for her.
Her partner Val Chmerkovskiy, newbie and younger brother to Maksim Chmerkovskiy, was however a bit harder on himself. “I’m sorry. I wish I did better for you,” he told Elisabetta for not taking her further in the competition. “But I’m very lucky to be here, and I really appreciate the opportunity.”
Some are also wondering today whether the nasty tweets by the Kardashian sisters last week might have led to Elisabetta’s early demise on the show.
Dancing with the Stars returns next week on Monday night at 8/7c.
