Tonight on Dancing With The Stars season 7 the first ever results show dance off took place to see who would be saved and who would be going home. Would Steve-O’s rehearsal performance be enough to keep him out of the dance-off tonight? Keep reading to find out who went home first on season 7 of Dancing With The Stars!
Big Bad Voodo Daddy started off the show tonight singing the Calloway Boogie to accompany the first pro group dance of season 7.
Steve-O was back and said that he really hopes that he is in the competition next week so he can make it up to his partner Lacey who told him that his planned flip was NOT a good idea.
Tom Bergeron and Samantha Harris revealed the first four couples that would be saved from the dance off and elimination this week. They were Lawrence and Edyta, Shawn and Mark, Chuck and Julianne and David and Kym.
Tom Bergeron and Samantha Harris also announced that Derek and Kim, Gilles and Cheryl, Melissa and Tony and Maksim and Denise were also saved.
After the Macy’s Stars of Dance performance Jewel sang Some Where Over The Rainbow as pro dancers Chelsea and Dmitry danced.
The next couples safe tonight were Holly and Dmitry, Ty and Chelsie and Steve-O and Lacey which meant that Belinda and Jonathan and Steve and Karina would be in the dance off tonight.
Each couple has chosen a dance style to repeat tonight. The judges slates were wiped clean and 50% of the viewers votes would count towards the judges final scores. The highest scorer stayed while the lowest scorer would be the first eliminated.
Belinda and Jonathan chose to repeat their salsa. Belinda was really into it tonight and was fighting for her life!
Len said well done Belinda we did see a little bit more hip action, Bruno said that they really feel for you and that you must be nervous and lost your foot work because of it. Carrie Ann said that it was crisp around the edges, but she lost a lot in the middle. They received a score of 5, 6, 6 for a total of 17…one less than what they received last night.
Steve and Karina chose to repeat their quickstep. I sure hope Steve goes tonight, he is really hard to watch dance…kind of creepy!
Bruno said that he really admires Steve and loves watching him. Carrie Ann said that she thought that Steve was cleaner tonight. Len said that he admires Steve, but there wasn’t enough improvement and if he is the one to go he could say he was the best entertainer. They received a score of 6, 5, 6 for a total of 17 which tied them with last night.
After combining the two couples score with the viewers votes…the couple going home tonight is Belinda and Jonathan.
Next week the couples take on either the fox trot or the samba on season 7 of Dancing With The Stars.
