There’s NO Elimination tonight, due to Misty May-Traenor’s withdrawal from the competition due to injury.
However, Rocco and Karina were revealed as the couple who WOULD have gone home if Misty and Maks had competed. Next week, all the scores will be combined to choose which couple will be eliminated…
Tonight, Jennifer Hudson, Kool and the Gang, and the Radio City Rockettes…
Re-cap and videos after the JUMP…
Re-cap first. La la la.
Misty is gone, and with her sudden departure, what will happen tonight? Misty had surgery today and is doing well. Maks and Edyta dance Misty’s jive.
Maks and Edyta’s tribute to Misty
Re-cap of the scores–Cloris is at the bottom with 16, Brooke at the Top with a season high of 28.
They will reveal the couple with the lowest score tonight…and then they won’t go home (I bet!)
- Brooke and Derek
- Cloris and Corky
- Maurice and Cheryl
- Warren and Kym
- Toni and Alec
- Susan and Tony
- Cody and Julieanne
- Lance and Lacey
Next, a medley of hits from Kool and the Gang, featuring a group dance from the pros. Soul Train! Ha.
Kool and the Gang:
After that groovy trip back to the 70’s is a video featuring the couples talking about their strengths, and what helps them in the competition.
Another couple is declared safe: Maurice and Cheryl
After the break, Samantha interviews the couples who are safe. Brooke says she still has a lot of hard work to do, and that it’s not as easy as it looks. Cloris babbles on about gentics, or something….moving right along. Maurice and Cheryl feel good about their performance this week.
Whee! The Radio City Rockettes are next. What could be more retro? Ohh! it’s the aerial shot. I knew we’d get one of those. Now, kick and flick…Swing, baby swing!
J-Hud in the HOUSE!!! Jennifer Hudson is next, performing with bro and sis pros, Derek and Julieanne. She performs her single, “Spotlight”.

Filler alert! Next is a video featuring 3 successful choreographers Brian Friedman, Travis Payne and Dave Scott comment on the dancers.
Even MORE filler. We could totally do this in 30 minutes, people… Yet another video. This one is about the painful, painful side of ballroom dancing.
Two more couples are safe: Warren and Kym, and Toni and Alec. They go backstage to talk to Samantha. Kym thinks Warren is doing GREAT! in the competition. (It would be awesome if one of the pros said, “My partner sucks…how did I get stuck with this loser?” Toni, still in her big, giant ass period costume, tells Samantha she’s going to bring it next week.
OMG NO ONE IS GOING HOME TONIGHT! Shock!!! NOT. But they ARE revealing WHO would have gone home this week…
The judges say no way in hell would Misty May have gone home if she had danced this week. Safe this week: Susan and Tony, Cody and Julieanne, Rocco and Karina WOULD have been eliminated tonight, but they get a reprieve. That means Lance and Lacey are safe.
