Cheryl Burke Drops Out of the Miss USA Pageant Due to NBC’s Position on Donald Trump

The headline says it all, but here is Cheryl’s official statement. Go, girl!

MISS USA

In light of the recent statements made by Donald Trump and the subsequent decision by NBC to cut ties with Mr. Trump, I cannot in good conscience move forward with participating in this year’s Miss USA Pageant as its co-host. Effective today I have withdrawn from my duties with Miss USA. Although I will not be there in person, I wish all of the contestants much luck as I know how hard they’ve all been working over the last year to try and realize their dreams.

Variety has also picked up this story.

Burke’s departure comes on the same day that NBC would air an “American Ninja Warrior” special on the night it was originally scheduled to air Miss USA. The three-hour July 12 special will be the show’s second annual “USA vs. the World” extravaganza, in which top competitors from the hot Monday series “American Ninja Warrior” go head to head with competitors from Japan and Europe. Last year’s “USA vs. the World” special in mid-September delivered a potent 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 despite facing tough reality show competition, including the season premiere of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.”

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Question: What Are Your Top 20 – 25 Dances Of All Time On Dancing With The Stars? Can Be From Any Country!

Thanks for all of your fun answers in our recent PureDWTS discussion post on “Your Top Five Dancing With The Stars Couples Of All Time“! So, how about a new question: If you were to pick your all time Top 20-25 Dances on Dancing With The Stars, what would they be? Again, and in broadening it, your favorite dances can be from any country if you watch other versions. Also, if you can’t stop at 20 – 25, feel free to make your list bigger if you like. If picking 20 -25 is too much, feel free to make your list smaller. Also, these dances can be from couples, pro numbers, etc.. Thanks to John and Cidra for the idea for this post.

I’ll meet you I comments with my list! For now, below are two photos just to give you a little hint of my top two favorite dances of all time. Woo Hoo. See you in comments with more and Thanks, Everyone!!
