Sherri Shepherd has been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. The View host and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy was booted out of the show in a shock result after they earned 21 points - the second lowest score - the night before for their performance of the tango, with Gladys Knight and Gavin DeGraw widely expected to be out.
"I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream I've always had. I had the most amazing partner, Val Chmerkovskiy. That thing that scares you the most, run towards it because it's so amazing on the other side. I had the most amazing time," she said, speaking through tears.
Donald Driver topped the leaderboard on Dancing with the Stars last night. The NFL star and his professional partner Peta Murgatroyd wowed the judges during rock week, with their paso doble to Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" - which saw the sportsman dance topless - earning a total of 27 points.
"Muscular. Masculine. Magnificent!" said judge Bruno Tonioli.
Carrie Ann Inaba described the routine as "raunchy and spectacular," while Len Goodman teased, "After the show, we'll compare tattoos."
This week was the first time Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas have not topped the leaderboard, with the judges receiving boos from the audience - which included David Hasselhoff, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Rita Wilson - when they awarded the couple 24 points for their paso doble.
"It had promise but didn't quite deliver," Len told them.
Katherine Jenkins topped the leader board on Dancing with the Stars last night.
The Welsh opera singer and her dancing partner scored 26 out of 30 for her jive performance, with judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli awarding her nine and head judge Len Goodman giving her eight. "I loved the start, the whole end section - the middle section wasn't really my cup of tea. It was wild and wacky," Len said, commenting on their dance.
Bruno claimed he loved it for its "sexiness. The blonde bombshell is unleashed. I know sexy when I see it and you've got it."
