May 2012 Archives

In a shocker of a results show, Jaleel White was shown the ballroom door on tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" episode.

While pretty much everyone believed Melissa Gilbert would be gone following disastrous scores from the judging panel Monday night, she was "safe" much to she shock of the judging panel, which remained stone-faced as the announcement was made.

In the end, White and his partner Kym Johnson, faced a rumba dance-off against Roshon Fegan and his partner Chelsie Hightower. But it was a unanimous judges' decision that sent White packing.

The rest of the night was an emotional one, especially in the AT&T Spotlight Dance, which featured a hip-hop dance troupe called the Groovaloos and one of its members Steelo Vasquez who suffered a brain aneurysm a year ago, and, after months in the hospital and months more of physical therapy, returned to dance once again. There wasn't a dry eye in the house.

In other news, Cheryl Burke's team won the "Battle of the Ballroom Dancers" amateur competition that's been going on online for weeks. Her duo performed a jive that wowed the judges and the ballroom.

And Gavin DeGraw returned to perform his latest single "Sweeter" of his new album of the same name.
