Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke were eliminated during tonight’s elimination episode on Dancing with the Stars All-Stars. If you missed the results show we recapped it here for you!
Emmitt and Cheryl danced the Espionage Lindy Hop and the Tango to Leave Me Alone – Emmitt and Cheryl’s first dance was a fun and animated performance. Len liked the concept, Bruno said it was “the most fun performance”, and Carrie Ann said it was their “most animated performance ever!” All three judges awarded the couple 9 points. The total score for their first dance was 27 – a below average score for the competition.
Their second dance received the same scores and the same critique. Bruno critiqued their footwork, but Len thought they “coped marvelously well.” GRAND TOTAL SCORE – 54 – TIED WITH THE LOWEST SCORE OF THE NIGHT
Whenever reality television show ideas dry up, they bring back previous contestants to compete on an All-Star show off. This television method has been implemented on America’s Next Top Model, Survivor, Bachelor/ette, Big Brother and millions of lesser important late night reality television productions. This was the first time in DWTS history that an All-Stars season was being produced – it was an attempt to rekindle the famous DWTS fire and bring back viewers who lost interest in the show for the past five seasons. However, the downtrodden 15th season of the popular show might have been the swan song we’ve all been waiting for.
