Dancing With The Stars 11 – Week 8 Results

Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya are eliminated from Dancing With The Stars. – VIDEO

I’m disappointed but not really surprised that Bristol Palin is still in it. It’s obvious she’s got people.  I dunno.  She’s not an unlikeable person, just incredibly dull…and a mediocre dancer.  So, I don’t get it.  Kurt wasn’t a good dancer, but he was fun to watch. I would have preferred another week of Kurt and Anna for sure.  It will be a shame if she outlasts Kyle and Lacey, but again, I won’t be surprised if that happens.

Brandy and Maks were put in jeopardy so that Carrie Ann could have a word with him.  He was unabashedly unapologetic–at least to Carrie Ann–about his outburst last night. But Maks’ hot head and unfiltered personality is what we like about him, isn’t it?

There’s two more weeks of this season, and I remain on Team Brandy! Who are you rooting for?

Video and Live Bog after the JUMP…

Kyle and Lacey were chosen to reprise their Jive! Good choice. Definitely the most entertaining performance from last night. Kyle and Lacey are safe!

Kenny Mayne, Jerry Rice and Len Goodman head Dance Center!

Taio Cruz sings his hit single “Dynamite” – VIDEO

After the break it’s John Legend and the Roots – VIDEO

Kurt and Anna are still in Jeopardy.

Maks apologizes to THE FANS for losing his cool last night. To Carrie Ann he says…”Let’s do our jobs.”  No apology.  So, “being cool” lasted 12 seconds! says Tom. Heh. – VIDEO

The kid dancers are back. Bleh. – VIDEO

John Legend and the Roots are back with “Ordinary People”. Jeanine Mason in the house! – VIDEO

Brandy and Maks and Kyle and Lacey are still in Jeopardy. WTF. BRISTOL SUCKS.

Bruno says the competition will lose a “real gentleman” if he goes.  He calls him a “real american Idol”  “Thanks for plugging the other network, says Tom.  Carrie Ann says she’s always respected all of the pros and she hopes he can “let it go”

Putting Maks and Brandy in Jeopardy was a set up so Carrie Ann could bitch Maks out…

FINAL RESULTS.

Safe:

  • Kyle and Lacey
  • Jennifer and Derek
  • Bristol and Mark

  1. Yeah Kyle!! Glad he’s safe.

    Why didn’t Dimitri get to dance with a star this season? I really like Dimitri.

  2. Yay Kyle! Woohoo!

    Dancecenter is awesome. Jerry Rice in false eyelashes! I was thinking Kurt was shorter than that, probably because Rick is SO tall. Ha ha talking about Magic Hands.

    By and large, ie, when she doesn’t forget her choreography. Oh LEN.

    I’m a tiny bit worried about Brandy and Maks now.

    poster, we ALLLL really like Dmitri. Wink wink.

    Oh look it’s the Leggo My Eggo song. What? That’s totally what he’s saying.

  3. hope bristol will get the boot, way overdue! but I think it will be kurt this week. hope i’m wrong.

  4. ugh Jennifer is so fake, boring, Yummy to the Maks and Cheryl, Tony and Chelsie dance to the John Legend song.

  5. well Kurt looks like he will get the boot unless the dance gods finally decide to dump Bristol.

  6. Maks ………. I love you! You’re always cool …….. way not to bow to TPTB who wanted that apology to the queen bitch. :)

    Quelle surprise…….Jennifer is safe. *rolls eyes*

    Yeah Kyle!!

  7. Maks was awesome, did they show Carrie Ann’s face I missed it I would love to have seen her bitch face come out again. :D

  8. Awww, Maks. Even if speaking up gets him the shock boot tonight, it was entertaining to see him stand his ground. Notice they didn’t put Carrie Ann on the spot and asked her why she gives Maks so much crap. Boo! I’m still kinda worried that they’re leaving.

  9. Wait, was the Roots performance taped? Otherwise, how in the world can they be on both coasts (LA for DWTS and NY for Jimmy Fallon)?

  10. John Legend was supposed to be on last week wasn’t he so it probably was taped. Go Jeanine! That was beautiful!

    See ya Kurt …….. I guess being in jeopardy is Maks’ penance for speaking his mind.

  11. wow still bitching with Maks and Carrie Ann and Brandy shuts Maks mouth :D, and the person leaving is Kurt and Anna, No Shock there….boring.

  12. Geez Carrie Anne choke on it …….. there is no love between she and Maks. Bitch, bitch, bitch ………

    She’s the one that needs to let it go already………..

  13. OMG I don’t think that was the right call. I like Bristol but Brandy did great and should not be in Jeopardy. Personally I think Jennifer should go home. I am getting tired of all her BS. Beside I think she has an unfair advantage as she has a dance background even in this style. I don’t think she has improved since the beginning. I do think the top 3 should be Brandy, Kyle, Bristol (to me she is the most improved) Truthfully it has more to do with that I don’t like Jennifer. Actually Adriana should have been in the top 3.

    Jeannie was Amazing and it was really great to see her.

  14. LOL Maks wasn’t going to give her an inch, funniest moment of the season :D

  15. I just have to say again, Maks is awesome!! It was a good move of Brandy to cover his mouth at the end though ……. oh to be a fly on the wall backstage …….

  16. LOL, leave it to Maks to bring the UNSCRIPTED drama. :) God bless him and his Eastern European temper. I don’t think he gets pissed for himself as much as for his partner. But he should know by now that he’s only giving the editing monkeys material and STFU while he’s on camera. Oh, I guess Carrie Ann and her history of respect forgot the time she tried to spank Maks, or compared Mel to a truck driver and refused to score her as high as the other judges for the longest time. And the list goes on… ;)

    Damn Kurt. I so wanted him to outlast Bristol.

  17. Sorry to see Kurt go. Thought it should be Bristol. Still think Maks is a brat!!! I’m glad they emphasized Kurt being a gentleman.
    Maks may not get asked back if he keeps up his defiant behavior. Too bad because he’s a good dancer.

  18. Bruno says the competition will lose a “real gentleman” if he goes. He calls him a “real american Idol” “Thanks for plugging the other network, says Tom.

    I guess you’re talking about Kurt Warner here. I’m sad to see him go he’s so likable! He worked hard. I really didn’t want to see Bristol go either because she’s so real and down to earth. I thought she would though since I guess she said she was ready to go last week? Mark seems like such a good guy too. :D

  19. Bristol Palin cannot dance at all. She should have been gone weeks ago. The only reason she is still on this show is because of the Tea Party. She should have been getting 6s and 7s for scores last night. The woman has done nothing. She is not a teen activist. What a joke DWTS has become.

  20. It definitely should be Bristol going home. Honestly who is voting for this girl?

    I think the show would be nuts to let Maks go as the viewers love the drama. Oh and his great body.

  21. I wonder who is voting for Bristol too. It can’t be because of her dancing ability or her bubbly personality – so can only assume it’s some sort of statement. The other 3 couples are the best dancers left in the contest – so that is fair. Just should not have been Bristol in the mix. Ce sera sera – Great job Kurt – enjoyed you immensely.

  22. I just don’t know what to say about Kurt going home. He’s such a sweet man and showed lots of improvement. I did want to see Britsol go home.

    I don’t remember Tom saying Maks and Brandy were in jeopardy?
    Maks and Carrie Ann have provided some good Reality TV again! ;o)

    Why didn’t Dimitri get to dance with a star this season? I really like Dimitri.

    Poster, I adore Dmitry and miss him! It was good to see Jeanine Mason tonight. Why am I always so pleased to see the SYTYCD dancers on this show?

  23. So glad Kyle is safe. I think Brandy will reach the finals regardless of Maks’s behavior, Brandy is a good dancer and that’s all that should matter.
    The spam bots are really out in full force. A number of threads have spam.

  24. Why am I always so pleased to see the SYTYCD dancers on this show?

    Me too….I don’t know why either but I love when I see them on here. Maybe its because I am happy to see them working. Its one show that people with talent we don’t get to see if they really “make it” or not. Seeing them on DWTS I get to see that they are doing well. Really wish I could see more of them in other show or events.

  25. It definitely should be Bristol going home. Honestly who is voting for this girl?

    Mark Ballas is very popular and talented and maybe he is getting sympathy votes for being saddled with Bristol – week after week. Then last season he was stuck with Shannen Doherty. And he also had to perform miracles with Kim Kardashian.

  26. Why am I always so pleased to see the SYTYCD dancers on this show?

    Maybe, cuz it seems they’re moving UP in the ranks?… to me at least, it seems like a much brighter opportunity as DWTS has a much larger audience. MJ, can u put up video of the pros being showcased, during John Legend or Taio Cruz(is that were Jeanine Mason popped up??). I missed the first half of results.

    Thoughts on Monday night, Jennifer Grey was over-scored & I say that with love. Perfect 30, nope! She had 4 missteps including an awkward slide at the end that Derek had to push her through. The leg pinning was awkward from my tv, she hesitated and they both clenched through it -Hard! If Jen got all tens, Kurt should have gotten one 9.

    Bye Kurt. Bye, DWTS. I no longer care who wins. I only have two faves left.

  27. I am not surprised that Bristol is still there. It could have been her as well as Kurt, but she has improved. I am sure she is getting a lot of her mom’s supporters. Her mom is very popular. I am not a big fan of her mom, but I can see why she is still there. It really is about how many fans you have. I like Mark, so maybe that is part of it and Bristol is not a diva like some of the other women. People like that– you know, the underdog.

    I totally agree that Jennifer was overscored. The drama for sympathy votes seemed so obvious to me.

  28. Interesting to see Bristol hanging in. It seems like this show usually has really good dancers at the end, but that may not happen this season. Even Kyle isn’t really all that good: he gets by a lot on personality and showmanship. I’m betting next week, the judges get really harsh and start giving more realistic scores. Last night, though, I wished Bristol was better, because I think she got the best music+choreography combo on the planned dance.

    And I wish they’d made the so-called instant dances more instant. Like, here’s 8 bars, now go! Like you’re at a dance, only you’re expected to really know how to dance. Then you’d really see who was responding to the music. It seemed to me Brandy+Maks (so wish it was Max) were best at it, the little movements that fit just that piece of music, but it got lost in Carry Ann Maks smack down. Still not sure why no one pointed out that her alarming refusal to reduce her fractions.

    And I hope I never have to see little kid ballroom dancers again, unless it’s some kind of horror movie. There’s something about it that just really creeps me out. To be perfectly honest, the grown-up professionals creep me out sometimes, too. But the kids! Yikes! Makes my skin crawl. Not logical I know, but there it is.

  29. I am now convinced that unless those idiot judges bring out the “1” paddle for her, Bristol is going to win. Kyle will be out next and then it will be an all female final. Bristol will win and then that would be it for me because they shouldn’t have let her on in the first place.

  30. Wait, was the Roots performance taped? Otherwise, how in the world can they be on both coasts (LA for DWTS and NY for Jimmy Fallon)?

    Sometimes the performance especially if there is a complicated choreo. dances, is taped. I went to a taping years ago and I think there was Usher and his dancers. He had to sing about 3 times just to get all the choreo. right. Usher’s performance was for the week after, and during that result show which I attended, they showed on the TV monitor somebody’s performance that was taped the week before.

  31. Love Jeannine’s performance. Almost did not recoqnize her and had to rewind my DVR after Tom said her name.

    Maks for the win. That was great of him. DO NOT apologize.

  32. Jeanine!!!!! Yay Yay Yay, one of my favorite SYTYCD winners — woot woot. I recognized her instantly, but couldn’t believe my eyes.

    Maks and Brandy all the way.
    During dance competitions, when they do instant dance, the couples often take 2 to 6 eight counts to get started, this is totally normal. Carrie Ann knows this!

  33. I suppose some didn’t believe me when I said that Bristol wasn’t going home this week. She does, as MJ said, have people, and is very popular. Not on this forum, of course, but, there are other blogs and forums in the cyberworld where she is a star.

    And, let’s be honest, she is trying very hard and is the most improved. Dang,I couldn’t learn those dances. Talk about clomping around on stage – that would be me. So, I have to admire anyone who goes on that show, regardless of my personal feelings for him/her.

  34. Talk about clomping around on stage – that would be me.

    That’s what Bristol does. She was clomping around like a clydesdale during that Argentine Tango.

  35. And, let’s be honest, she is trying very hard and is the most improved.

    I must be watching a different show.

  36. I don’t know, skylight1219. To me, it doesn’t look like Bristol tries all that hard. And her improvement is still only as good as those in the first couple weeks of the show usually have. What really makes me believe that she doesn’t work too hard is that she doesn’t seem to have lost weight like most (and I use this term very loosely) stars do.

  37. Bristol is still there because Mommy has a large fan base.

    On a scale of 1-10, Bristol’s improvement has been maybe a 2. She still counts, still loses her place, still clomps and still shows no emotion. If anyone told me a dancer with those scores and qualities was going to win a big dance contest, I would seriously question their sanity.

    If/when Bristol wins, I wonder how she will feel knowing she only won because of her Mother and someone who improved and danced well, lost.

    With regard to Sarah talking about a lap dance to Bristol … that was totally crass.

  38. I really didn’t want to see Bristol go either because she’s so real and down to earth. I thought she would though since I guess she said she was ready to go last week? Mark seems like such a good guy too

    Yep! Go Bristol. I don’t find her dull at all but very entertaining and refreshing. She has a fan base and that is how it works. So what if the Tea Party folks vote for her? That is how it works too. I don’t know who is voting for her but I like her and think she has improved through out the season. And for the record, I started voting for her a couple of weeks ago and I am neither a SP fan nor a Tea partier. I really think people just like her as I do and thus she gets the votes. The over the top drama of some of the other contestants/stars is a huge turn off to me and I would rather see one who is not so self indulgent go forward.

  39. nd, let’s be honest, she is trying very hard and is the most improved. Dang,I couldn’t learn those dances. Talk about clomping around on stage – that would be me. So, I have to admire anyone who goes on that show, regardless of my personal feelings for him/her.

    Okay, let’s be honest. Her routines are the most watered down of all the celebrities left and unlike Kurt and Kyle haven’t gotten significantly more difficult. Bristol is the least improved out of all the non dancers who have ever gotten this far on the show. She’s coasted by on her youthful athleticism and a little bit of natural grace (I’ll give her that). Kurt improved. Kyle improved. Bristol has danced exactly the same all along- wooden expressions, no showmanship. At this point, it’s clear she could take a dump on the stage and get voted through, and that’s the nature of the show, so the judges are forced to kiss her ass if she doesn’t forget her choreography. I felt bad for Kurt who really did start out awful but had the competitive spirt and worked hard to get better while Bristol barely seems to put in an effort. I applaud anyone who tries to learn new styles of dance because I love dance, but really, comparatively, if you’re being honest, she doesn’t deserve to be there.

    During dance competitions, when they do instant dance, the couples often take 2 to 6 eight counts to get started, this is totally normal. Carrie Ann knows this!

    That’s probably why Len mostly stayed out of it. Carrie Ann as far as I know has never competed in dancesport, though. Her claim to dance fame was being a Fly GIrl on In Living Color. I bet Maks was thisclose to bringing that up and watching CA talk her way out of that one, LOL.

  40. Not on this forum, of course, but, there are other blogs and forums in the cyberworld where she is a star.

    Yes there are and she is liked for her down to earth attitude and it has nothing to do with politics or to whom she is related. I didn’t even think of that until some posted such trivia.

    And, let’s be honest, she is trying very hard and is the most improved. Dang,I couldn’t learn those dances.

    Yep! I admire her gumption for taking on DWTS with no performance experience at all. The others are seasoned in one way or another either from sports, acting, singing etc. She has improved and I take all of the above into account when judging. Go Bristol. I highly doubt she will win but I still like her and the attitude displayed. Some of the “seasoned” ones could take lessons from her when it comes to self indulgence and whining.

  41. Maks may not get asked back if he keeps up his defiant behavior. Too bad because he’s a good dancer.

    He may just quit again. I really hope he wins this season. Kudos for him saying to Carrie Ann what should be said.
    I am really sad Kurt left. He tried hard, improved and is an all-around great guy. Bristol should not be there. I hope Kyle gets tons of votes next week.

  42. I guess I’m no longer surprised that Bristol is outlasting dancers that seem better/more entertaining to me. (I don’t hate her). I really, really hope she goes before Kyle, though, because he has been dancing up a very entertaining storm, IMO.

    I thought Maks’ apology to fans only, not Carrie Ann, was great. (I think she’s still mad that Maks didn’t let her spank him earlier this season – god, that whole thing was a cringe-fest.)

    I love watching Maks dance – his talent and . . . unique personality have gotten him this far in his career and I don’t see him changing much anytime soon. I like that about him. Most of his partners have ended up saying they liked him, I think. (Dance partners, I mean.)

  43. Team Brandy!

    Go Maks. DO NOT APOLOGIZE to Carrie Ann. I think CA started the real argument. After she called them out for waiting too long to start, Maks said it was his fault (just defending his partner). That’s when CA got nasty and witchy at him. She was out of line. Sure hope Maks comes back next season….after a win this time!

    Bristol – get off my tv screen. Dull as dishwater and I’ve seen dancing bears with better moves. You do not deserve to be in the semifinals of a dance competition.

    Enjoyed Kurt’s green shirt dance. He was much improved.

    LOVE Dance Center!

  44. I enjoyed Dance Center, too!

    Bristol’s Argentine Tango was my favorite dance of the night. It has nothing to do with politics. I just really enjoyed the dance and I really like the way Mark treats her considering she has had NO “entertaining” experience at all. He seems so nice!

    My second and third favorites were both of Kyle’s dances. I don’t think Bristol will win and I hope it is Kyle. Jennifer=whiner, Brandy=uninteresting. We all have different opinions and that is okay.

    It bothers me when people assume people are voting for Bristol because of politics. That would be like me saying people are voting for Brandy because of race. It is just plain ignorant. JMHO.

  45. Putting Maks and Brandy in Jeopardy was a set up so Carrie Ann could bitch Maks out…

    MJ, I thought Brandy and Maks may have gotten the highest scores. What you say makes sense! Someone said unscripted drama… yep.

    It seems like this show usually has really good dancers at the end, but that may not happen this season.

    Webster, I was trying to remember if there has ever been as bad of a dancer in the Final Four? Bristol seems like a nice young lady, but she lacks musicality. This is not a season DWTS can be proud of, IMO.

  46. It bothers me when people assume people are voting for Bristol because of politics. That would be like me saying people are voting for Brandy because of race. It is just plain ignorant. JMHO.

    You nailed it! I don’t know why politics is even being discussed with a reality show which is purely entertainment. Makes no sense at all but I guess some just don’t like SP and this is a ding.

    Bristol seems like a nice young lady, but she lacks musicality.

    Totally disagree. Bristol can shake it! She is improving and has natural ability that needs refinement.

  47. The best thing about Bristol is Mark Ballas, he is a beautiful dancer. His dance with Jeanine was gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. I am telling myself, ppl are not voting for Bristol, they are voting for Mark. That’s the only explanation, which makes sense to me :D

  48. MJ, I’m with you. What the heck with the Bristol Palin phenom. Please don’t shoot me cause I’m a Republican. But yeah, what’s up with that??? She is lovely and I respect her for being a single mom. Is that what it’s all about????

    Maybe there are peeps that adore her baby daddy???? lol…. Her mom is not so revered.

  49. Maybe there are peeps that adore her baby daddy???? lol…. Her mom is not so revered.

    Why is it so difficult for some to not accept that Bristol is liked and resort to looking for reasons why one would enjoy watching Bristol dance? Couldn’t it be just as simple as they see her dancing totally differently than others? That is surely the case with me. I frankly think some just use this as a ding against her Mother. I am Independent voter myself and could care less about the baby’s Daddy or who her Momma is. Goodness gracious. The girl is unpretentious and has guts to do what she is doing with no performance training whatsoever. I give her the due. I do agree Mark is an awesome dancer and I love the chemistry with the two of them. I think she has a sweet personality and I see natural talent. Go Bristol.
