Dancing with the Stars: Who Said Goodbye on Monday's Show and Meant It?

28 October 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

When Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke said goodbye Monday night, she meant it. As she hinted at the beginning of the season, Burke, 30, is preparing to leave Dancing with the Stars - the ABC reality show that made her a household name. Her contract isn't up until the end of the season, but the judges and viewers hastened her departure by booting her celebrity partner Antonio Sabato Jr. on Monday. The show's first female pro to win two consecutive mirror-ball trophies lost a chance at a third when the judges pooh-poohed her Halloween-themed Viennese waltz with the General Hospital actor. »

27 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the StarsHalloween Night featured performances by the final eight couples, team dances and the return of Len Goodman.

Dancing With The Stars Recap

First up on Monday night was Tommy Chong, who took on a quickstep with pro partner Peta Murgatroyd. Rehearsals reveal that Tommy’s age is finally becoming a factor, as he has having some difficulty learning two dances. However, his performance in the ballroom dance was more than capable and the judges were all impressed. Scores: 7+7+7+7=28

Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev had the Argentine tango this week. Fresh off some disappointing scores, Lea felt some added pressure to nail her routine this week, which she did. Julianne Hough noted that she is a precise dancer who is always hitting her moves. However, the judges were looking to see a bit more chemistry and personality in the routine. Scores: 8+8+9+9=34

Derek Hough was duly impressed by »

'Dancing with the Stars' recap: Bethany Mota triumphs, Len Goodman glowers on fright night

27 October 2014 8:07 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Our users had a good week predicting "Dancing With the Stars," a better week than the stars had performing under the unforgiving eye of Len Goodman, who returned to the judges' table this week with frightful comments after several weeks absent. -Break- Psst: Here's how to predict reality TV shows and win bragging rights And prizes! The leaderboard has fluctuated many times this season, so it's no surprise that our users were split between three performers trying to predict who would receive the night's lowest score: Bethany Mota, Janel Parrish, and Alfonso Ribeiro all led with 11/2 odds, which turned out to be spot-on. Mota received the top score, and all three finished in the top four. Lea Thompson exceeded our users' expectations: they ranked her fourth, but the judges placed her second. The bottom of the leaderboard has proven a little easier to foretell. After delivering one of his strongest dances last week, »

27 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Things got downright spooky on week 7 of Dancing With the Stars, as the final eight couples performed both individual and team dances. It was a freestyle fright night of sorts — starring TeamCreepy versus TeamItsyBitsy — and we faced the prospect of Michael Waltrip and Tommy Chong surviving yet another week. Now that’s what I call scary!

That said, popping back to the ballroom to say “boo” on this Halloween-themed live show were returning head judge Len Goodman (who else has missed the prospect of a “10 from Len” during his latest hiatus?) and co-host Erin Andrews (back from World Series duty »

Whose Waltz Scared the Judges and Lost Him a Chance for the Mirror Ball Trophy?

27 October 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

How's this for scary: Judge Len Goodman started the night in a casket! It was an appropriate opening because the returning judge had to help sound the death knell for Antonio Sabato Jr. No matter how many times the soap star went shirtless under the mirror ball this season, he and partner Cheryl Burke just couldn't keep the judges, or viewers, happy. "I danced with one of the best in the world," Sabato Jr. said. "It's all about the fans and that's why I am here." Here's how the rest of the night played out: Sabato Jr. and Burke. The »

Len Goodman blasts 'copycat' twerkers

23 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Len Goodman has called out twerking celebrities describing them as ''copycats''. The 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge has blasted singers and performers for plagiarising old dance routines. Referring to Miley Cyrus' twerking, the 70-year-old television personality explained that the booty-shaking move has been stolen from the 1920s dance, the Charleston and that even Michael Jackson's famous moonwalk was borrowed from Afro American dancing. Talking to the Daily Star newspaper, Len said: ''It's nothing new. ''All these kids twerking and jerking - why are they doing that?'' The former professional dancer - who joined the 'Strictly' judging panel in 2004 - then revealed that he »

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Top Nine Compete On Pitbull Night

20 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars returned Monday night with the final nine couples dancing to songs sung by – and/or liked by – recording artist Pitbull. Also, filling in for Erin Andrews, who is working the World Series, was DWTS alum Leah Remini.

Dancing with the Stars Recap

Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker were the first pair to hit the dance floor, taking on a jazz number. Allison choreographed a Men in Black-themed routine complete with some hip-hop moves that Jonathan picked up with ease. Overall, it was the best choreography from Holker and Jonathan’s best dancing. Scores: 8+8+8+8=32

The reunited Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy danced a traditional samba. The routine was both fun and passionate, with Val showing off his abs. Once again, Janel proved she’s a natural on the dance floor. Among the judges, it was Pitbull that was left the most disappointed, while Carrie Ann Inaba »

Alfonso Ribeiro Dominates The Dance Floor On 'DWTS'

20 October 2014 8:48 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson set the stage on fire with their hot moves.

In a night of top notch performances, with Jonathan Bennett and Michael Waltrip delivering their best dances yet, it was the always-entertaining Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson who really won the evening.

While they might have had the dance to beat, it wasn't the highlight of the evening! Check out the best, worst and weirdest moments from this week's Dancing With The Stars.

The Best

Jonathan and Allison Holker's Men In Black Dance

Jonathan Bennett was told he was in jeopardy, and then immediately had to get up and dance to Pitbull's Men In Black 3 song "Back In Time." So, in the vein of Men in Black, they donned government issue suits and Jonathan delivered his best performance ever. Sure, the set designers might have confused Men In Black with The Matrix, but it was pretty spectacular.

DWTS Week 6 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

20 October 2014 8:08 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s Week 6 of Dancing With the Stars, which historically means it’s high time for a shocking, teeth-gnashing, out-of-nowhere elimination. But with Mirrorball also-rans like Michael Waltrip, Tommy Chong and even Jonathan Bennett still kickin’ it on the ballroom floor, what’s a drama-hungry viewer to do?

How about giving venerable host Tom Bergeron a sassy, sexy — and potentially unstable – new sidekick? That’s right, Monday’s live show showcased another “switch up” of sorts – last week’s partner swapping debacle wasn’t enough? — as the ballroom welcomed a glittering new guest co-host, Leah Remini!
