When the creepy music was over, it was Sugar Ray Leonard who was shown the exit sign on Tuesday night's "Dancing with the Stars" results show. Standing alongside his partner Anna Trebunskaya and Chelsea Kane and her partner Mark Ballas, it was quite an interesting turn of events considering Chelsea and Mark had topped the leader board the night before. Sugar Ray had been showing signs of improvement over the previous weeks, but the lack of viewer votes were unable to keep him in the competition.
The results show started off on a very odd note, with judge Len Goodman doing a complete 180 and stating that Chelsea and Mark had danced "the dance of the night" just 24 hours earlier. That was completely ridiculous considering Goodman had totally ripped into the young duo for their contemporary take on the Viennese waltz during Monday night's competition. Not sure why the pseudo-apology was called for; perhaps it was ABC's attempt to stave off another Bruno Tonioli-Michael Bolton-type war of words from last season. Bruno never apologized, or even softened his criticism of Bolton's lack of dancing prowess. Not sure why Len had to justify his criticism and praise what he had previously chastised. Never saw him as pissed off as he was Monday night at Mark for failing to teach Chelsea a "proper waltz."
Back to Mark and Chelsea... wonder if they'll stick to their hip choreography next Monday or heed Len's words from Monday night. Oh wait, Len wasn't listening to his own words, either, apparently.
