'DWTS' Recap: Another Shocking Elimination
Who are the latest to hang up their dancing shoes?
By Laurel Brown
Our regular recap writer is on vacation and will return on Monday.
Much like movies themselves, the story must end for one "Dancing With the Stars" competitor this week. Will we get another surprise elimination? Will the lowest-scoring dancers find themselves in danger? Is anybody safe?
No movie ever had this much suspense...
Last Night on TV: Watch recaps
That's not entirely true, of course. After all, there's an entire genre of "suspense" movies. But the story on "Dancing With the Stars" will still be filled with an enviable number of twists and turns before we find out who the final Week 4 elimination is.
In terms of non-results entertainment this week, "Dancing With the Stars" has plenty to offer us. Musical performances will come from Raphael Saadiq, Susan Boyle and Blake Shelton. We will also get to see "Footloose" star (and former "Dancing with the Stars" professional) Julianne Hough dancing to Blake Shelton's music with her brother, Derek , and her "Footloose" co-star Kenny Wormald.
That's actually a lot to pack into one little hour. So let's get to it!
We get a "Star Wars" beginning this week. As it should be. I will not, however, be keeping up with the cheesy movie references throughout this episode. I have to recap and therefore do not have time for that.
The performances of the show are beginning with Raphael Saadiq performing "Soul Man."
Was Pee Wee Herman in the audience every week before this season?
Are we never going to get actual results? Probably not. Instead, we're going to get Susan Boyle singing "Unchained Melody."
By the way, did you catch Tom's face when Brooke announced the title of the song as "unforgettable" hit "Enchanted Melody?"
First up for results: Rob and Cheryl, Ricki and Derek, J.R. and Karina.
Ricki Lake and Derek Hough are safe!
Big shocker there, right?
J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff are safe!
Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke remain in jeopardy.
Are we going to get more results right away? Considering that Brooke is interviewing three more couples in the skybox, the answer is hopefully yes.
Assuming that more results are coming, the next pairs up are Chynna and Tony, Carson and Anny, Chaz and Lacey.
OK, now we get those results!
Before that, however, what's with all the rehashing of Carrie Ann's comments? There have been a few from Len, but there is a lot of Carrie Ann tonight. Anyway...
Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer are safe!
Ah, committed voters...
Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya are safe!
Ah, good-humored voters...
Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani remain in jeopardy.
That's enough results for the moment, apparently. It's time for Julianne and Derek Hough to dance together. They're very fast at that jive.
I think we're done with the non-results related entertainment for the evening. That means it's time for yet another round of results. This time, Nancy and Tristan, David and Kym, Hope and Maks are up.
Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are safe!
Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus remain in jeopardy.
Which means that...
David Arquette and Kym Johnson are safe!
All that remains now before the final fade to black on Week 4 of "Dancing with the Stars"? The final results in which we'll find out if it's Rob and Cheryl, Chynna and Tony or Nancy and Tristan going home this week.
Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus are safe!
Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke are safe!
Which means that...
Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani have been eliminated from "Dancing With the Stars"!
So we got another surprise elimination. That seems to be a theme of the season, doesn't it? But, after all, the best movies have a twist at the end!
What do you think of Tuesday night's results?
"Dancing With the Stars" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
It's called Dancing With The Stars, and it's suppose to be about the dancing. I have watched since the very first season and it has become a contest that is based on popularity rather than dancing ability. Lets face facts Carson, Chaz and David need to go. Carson is amusing, but its suppose to be about his dancing ability. Davids not much of a dancer, and while I applaud Chaz for the courage it must have taken him to appear on the show, he can't dance either.
While the show has very good ratings, it seems that they are desperate for celebrity contestants. Rob Kardashian a celebrity. Please! But in all fairness what makes Chaz a celebrity? Speaking of the Kardashians, I find this family so offensive. Chloes smart mouth comment to Bruno week one was uncalled for, for whatever reason, this whole family acts as if they are entitled, with Mom Kris Jenner pimping for the entire brood.
This is my 1st season to watch DWTS. Someone tell me this isn't real!!!
Let's just give the award to Ms, Mrs. oops Mr. Bono.
If this is season is only for ratings, sponsors look tomorrow, subtract 1.
Chynna and Tony were my pick for the win. She had a lot of potential and she was very expressive. I am sorry to see them go.
@DWTSwatcher625: On the first show, Chaz talked about being the first gender change contestant. He is introduced as an author/ACTIVIST. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out just what kind of activist he is, nor is it hard to guess the reason people are voting for him. You dont honestly think theye voting for him because they think he is the best DANCER, do you??? As for your comment about Brooke...I totally agree. She is useless. "Enchanted" Melody.....give me a break.
Unbelievable, DWTS has turned into a freak show. Lets find some more dysfunctional people and throw them on stage too.
You have a transgender overweight "dancer" still in.
You have got to be kidding!
Bummer. I thought Chynna was good right off the bat. What is with the fact that Tony, who is a fantastic dancer and choreographer, has never one the competition. He is so downplayed compared to Max, so full of himself. I was rooting for Chynna, not only because she has done very well but because Tony deserves a win. I used to really like Derek but he is also not humble like he was at the beginning - though a great talent.
I used to think it was the perfect way to pick a winner with the combination of judge and viewers. I guess it no longer works. I definitely go with a vote to send someone home - I think that would be much more accurate!
