'DWTS' Recap: Painfully Shocking Elimination Leaves Us Breathless


OMG. By far, tonight's trio dances were the highlight of the entire Dancing With the Stars season -- so far, that is. It's so entertaining and fun to see the contestants show off just how much they've learned up until this point.

The clear front runners have definitely emerged. Based on dancing skills alone, it will be a real shocker if Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff don't take home the mirror ball trophy. Um, did you even believe his jazz routine tonight? Hell, he even made Carrie Ann Inaba drop an f-bomb, which never happens.

(And how amazing was Elizabeth Berkley's salsa with Val Chmerkovskiy and Gleb Savchenko? I wouldn't mind being in the middle of that sandwich. Just sayin'.)

But let's cut to the chase -- the real f-bombs came at the end of the show when Tom Bergeron finally announced who is not going on to the semi-finals next week.


How in the hell did Elizabeth and Val wind up with a lower number of votes than Bill Engvall and Emma Slater?

Seriously -- when Tom announced that tonight was the end of the road for Elizabeth, I looked up at the ceiling and let out a huge "Noooooooo!!!"

I mean absolutely no disrespect to Bill, because he's about as lovable as DWTS cast members get. But he's clearly the worst dancer, and this is a dancing competition. Elizabeth Berkley kicked ass tonight and did not deserve to have her time on the show cut short.

Ugh. I feel awful for her. And it was obvious that she and Val were totally blindsided by their elimination, based on the confident looks on their faces before their names were read.

But I have to admit that I have almost as much sympathy for Bill, because he knows his time on the show should've been over a few weeks ago.

If this pattern continues, however, I'd say there's a great chance that Bill could wind up winning the whole deal. Damn. Who knew a comedian would prove to have the most loyal fans out of all the competitors?

It will be very interesting to see what happens next week, to say the least. Watch out Jack, Corbin, Leah, and Amber -- Bill Engvall is comin' for all of ya.

Are you rooting for Bill? And do you think Elizabeth deserved to go home?
