Below is Keo Motsepe and Charo on Good Morning America talking on their elimination and she didn’t get bleeped this time…
What a show stopper night on Dancing With The Stars last night. I ended up really liking “Vegas Night”. I especially loved Derek and Julianne Hough’s “Unsteady” performance too. The art and the story telling was off the hook.
So, let’s review last night’s scores again…
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: Scores of 8-8-9-9 from the judges for a total of 34.
Heather Morris and Alan Bersten: Scores of 9-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 33.
Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev: Scores of 8-9-8-8 from the judges for a total of 33.
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber: Scores of 7-8-9-8 from the judges for a total of 32.
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold: Scores of 8-7-8-8 from the judges for a total of 31.
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater: Scores of 7-7-7-7 from the judges for a total of 28.
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd: Scores of 7-6-7-6 from the judges for a total of 26.
Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko: Scores of 6-7-7-6 from the judges for a total of 26.
Mr. T and Kym Herjavec: Scores of 6-6-6-6 from the judges for a total of 24.
Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess: Scores of 6-6-6-6 from the judges for a total of 24.
Charo and Keo Motsepe: Scores of 6-6-6-6 from the judges for a total of 24.
Former Chicago Cubs player David Ross continued to impress, bringing the house down with a “Magic Mike” themed number that had him stripping down to his red skivvies—and a tee shirt with perfect drawn-on abs.
The athlete, who scored 31 with partner Lindsay Arnold, told FOX411 that his wife Hyla approved the risqué dance because “I do that goofy stuff at home. Get out of the shower and I’m all messing with her ’cause I’ve got that goofy side of me but to do that in front of millions of people and in this environment was a little scary for me. I told her, ‘Daddy’s coming home with some new moves!’ ”
Football player Rashad Jennings received 28 points from the judges for his samba that wasn’t quite up to his usual standard with partner Emma Slater.
“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne received 26 for a jive, with Judge Julianne Hough sighing, “You were a little wobbly on your feet.”
Tying with Jayne with 26 points was “The Bachelor” star Nick Viall, who tango-ed with Peta Murgatroyd to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.”
After the show, Viall told FOX411, “I feel great about tonight….I was more in the moment than in the first two weeks.”
In Tom Bergeron’s latest facebook chat, Linz asked him why there hasn’t been any promotion for Derek Hough’s return to the ballroom? Geez….remember all the times in the past when TPTB would have promos and commercials for Maks Chmerkovksiy’s return to the ballroom? Don’t get me wrong, I loved those promos for Maks, but, why isn’t the show doing the same for Derek who has won 6 Mirror Balls (the most of anyone) and who is a 2 time Emmy winner for this show …and also much loved by fans? What’s more, and just like Linz just wrote to me, you’d think they’d want to promote the show even more being the College Basketball Finals are up against it tonight? Pretty sad. Thanks for listening to our rant and here’s to Derek and Julianne’s “Move Beyond” ‘Elastic Heart’ Part 2 performance tonight. Special Dedication and preview below courtesy of Derek’s Instagram…..
Tonight Julianne and I perform an extension of our last piece we danced together "Elastic Heart". A Part 2 if you will. A very personal story that is dedicated to anyone who has gone through something difficult in their lives or is going through something currently. This piece represents closure. If I could go back in time and tell my younger self in times of heart ache something. I would tell him that "Everything is going to be ok". And that's the message we hope to bring tonight Everything is going to be ok. LET GO of the feelings and the meanings that don't serve you. And HOLD ON to what truly matters. Each other
Time for Dancing With The Stars weekly Facebook chat with Tom Bergeron. He answers questions from fans. These are so fascinating as always.

Rarely do we get to hear from the costume designers Of Dancing With The Stars, but, here is Daniela Gschwendtner and Steven Lee talking with TV Insider about the designs they are the most proud of (I love what they said on Mark Ballas!) and a horror story too….
What designs are you most proud of?
Lee: We’ve always liked the theme nights like movie-themed or Disney night. Those are fun because we get to make our own interpretation. When we did The Little Mermaid’s Ursula with Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy, Val was the eel. We were like, ‘How do you make Val an eel?’ We ended up doing this shirt with scales on it.
Gschwendtner: We like doing something where you obviously can’t do it how its drawn. Otherwise you can’t dance in it, or it’ll look like a hokey, weird Halloween costume. It needs to seem stylish and cool, and I think those are the best challenges.
Lee: We’ve always liked Mark Ballas for these. He’s not with us this season, but he always gets creative. For Alice in Wonderland he’s been the White Rabbit, Woody in Toy Story, he’s been a ninja, a peacock, Adam of Adam & Eve – he does so much. We love that. It’s also cool that he lets us do our thing and not get in the way. I think when people over-think it, like too many cooks in the kitchen, it gets a little messy, but he just lets us do our job. Those are the most fun though, the ones with the themes.
Do you have any live-show horror stories?
Gschwendtner: Last season, Gleb Savchenko stepped on Jana Kramer’s skirt during dress rehearsal and he absolutely destroyed it—it ripped completely in half. We had to make a completely new skirt right before the show!

Below is a fun facebook chat with Heather Morris and Alan Bersten from yesterday. They give an update on Maks. They also said they were up early yesterday, their costumes look good for tonight, and sweat was flying everywhere at camera blocking. Lots more below…
Erika Jayne spoke to US Weekly about how she’s feeling about Dancing With The Stars so far. Here is what she told them….
“I love it. It’s great. It’s a challenge — every week you learn something new,” Jayne, 45, told Us. “You form a bond with your partner and you get out there and perform on Monday nights live.”
When asked whether the high-energy ballroom practices have been difficult, the singer assured Us that it’s nothing she can’t handle. “I knew it was tough,” she said. “I knew it was going to be a challenge … I take a couple of Aleve and I’m pretty good. So far so good.”
Good luck, Guys! More at US Weekly. Also, below are some fun instagrams for Vegas Night from Gleb Savchenko.
