Dancing With The Stars: The Stars Speak Out About Bruno Tonioli’s Critique Of Michael Bolton

September 30, 2010 04:00 PM by Lisa Princ


On Monday night’s episode of ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars Bruno Tonioli criticized Michael Bolton’s performance by saying it was the worst he’d ever seen in eleven seasons. To make matters worse, the famed judge only gave the celebrity dancer a 3 out of 10 stars which enraged some of the other dancers. Keep reading to hear what the other stars had say!

It’s safe to say that most of the stars of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars were upset by Bruno Tonioli’s comments towards Michaal Bolton’s performance as most of them spoke to Access Hollywood after the show. Margaret Cho said “It was unfair, it was hard. I love Michael Bolton, he’s my buddy here and so it’s really tough.” while Tony Dovolani said he’d never seen a 3 since Master P days and “That was harsh. We had to actually dance right after them, so it was hard to watch that because I know Michael wants to do this so badly, and I know the judges are there to judge, but they need to be encouraging.” Audrina Patridge agreed that it was harsh and she also called it “kind of rude”.

And it doesn’t stop there as almost everyone seemed to agree it was harsh. Louis Van Amstel hinted that Master P may have deserved a 3, but Michael didn’t just for his effort alone. Florence Henderson told us she saw a sad Michael Bolton backstage after ward “He looked so down backstage,” she said. “We’ve all become friends and we root for each other and it hurt all of us.” What did you think of Bruno’s comments and score? Do you think Michael Bolton deserved it or was it too harsh? Comment and let us know!

    I am appalled at Bruno for his comments. They are NOT pro dancers and are there to learn. Granted Michael was not good but he tried. He did not deserve a 3 though. Master P was a far worse dancer then Michael was and he did not get a 3. I am also upset with ABC for agreeing with Bruno’s comments and saying he does not need to apologize. YES HE DOES!! Do they think they will continue to get stars on that show if they know they will get ABUSED like that?? I have watched from season one and I am so done with it. This is the 1st year ever that I did not participate in any of the chat forms or voting for any of them. I HATE ABC and I hate Bruno. To me hate is a strong word and I feel it for them.

    I can see what you mean, but on the positive side, Michael is performing tonight so maybe we will see an apology by Bruno? We can hope :-)
