DANCING WITH THE STARS: Tyra Banks Botched Elimination Leads To Confusion; Anne Heche & Keo Motsepe Sent Home

Every host at one time or another in their career can have one of these moments when they are live!  Now, add Dancing with the Stars, Tyra Banks to the list.

Banks, who is the new host of the long-running celebrity ballroom-dance competition made a major gaffe at the end of Monday night’s episode.

The issue arose when Banks was announcing the bottom two duos with three left on the floor.  Standing there on live TV in the confusion were: Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko, Anne Heche and Keo Motsepe, and Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd.

 

However, of the three couples only Heche and Motsepe were truly in the bottom two.  The other, were actually Monica Aldama and Val Chmerkovskiy, who’d already left the floor, since they were told they were moving on.  But then, Banks called them back to the floor, saying, “There has been an error in the control room.  This is the craziness of live TV.  I’m so sorry. This is live TV.”  Many were quick to compare the snafu to Steve Harvey’s Miss Universe mishap in 2015!

In a post-show tweet,  Banks claimed that the error wasn’t her fault:  “Wowzers. Live TV. Wrong name on cards. So challenging to deal with moments like these. But we power through.”  However, she did receive some backlash from fans of the show, who thought she should own up to the mistake.

Now as to how three former soap stars did last night, here’s what went down:

Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko- Foxtrot

Dancing to Harry Styles “Adore You”, Stause was cited by Bruno for a stumble, but judge Derek Hough says he did not see it and it was her best dance of the season.  Week to week Chrishell and Gleb’s connection grows stronger.  In her pre-dance package, Chrishell discussed freezing her eggs, and after the dance, Tyra asked Chrishell why she revealed this publicly, and Stause shared it’s important to get in front of it, so it’s than a none issue.  SCORE 22 out of 30

Anne Heche and Keo Motsepe – Paso Doble

Dancing to Katy Perry’s “Rise”, in the pre-package Anne discusses her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres and how she was discriminated against from taking her as her date to her own movie premiere – but how Heche was instrumental in moving the needle forward for LGBTQ rights  During her dance, the judges felt she was a bit unsteady on her feet with a bit of a “balance” issue,   SCORE 21 out of 30

Jesse Metcalfe and Sharna Burgess – Cha-Cha

Dancing to Santana and Rob Thomas’ “Smooth”, the judges want Jesse to have more of an “easiness” to his dances and give us more “hip action”.  However, it was the former Passions star best performance of the season.   SCORE 21 out of 30

Noteworthy Performance: Skai Jackson and Alan Bersten – Foxtrot

In the emotional high point of the evening,  Skai Jackson paid tribute to her former Disney Channel co-star, the late Cameron Boyce. She and pro partner Alan Bersten performed to John Legend’s “Ordinary People”.  Judge, Carrie Ann was so moved by the performance she gave out the first 10 of the season.”  SCORE 28 out of 30

‘Bachelorette’ Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins The Mirrorball Trophy In Season Finale of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

In a season which saw a new host and executive producer, Tyra Banks, no studio audience due to Covid-19, three former soap stars in the competition and some too-close-to-call moments, four celebrity dancers and their pro partners danced their hearts out on Monday night in the season finale of Dancing with the Stars.

Hoping to take home the Mirrorball Trophy were: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, Justina Machado and Nev Schulman along with their pro dance partners.

The four couples danced two numbers – one dance they performed earlier in the season, and one freestyle.

When the dust settled with the judges scores combined with the popular vote at-home, and no judges ‘save’ at play to decide the final fate of the season, here is how it went down when the results were revealed,

In fourth place was Justina Machado and her partner, Sasha Farber.  In third place was Nelly and his pro partner Daniella Karagach,  That left two of the top celebrity dancers in the entire field as Tyra Banks handed down the results as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nev Shulman held on to their partners for life hoping their name would be called.

Next, Tyra announced that it was former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev who won it all and took the coveted Mirrorball Trophy as a let-down Nev Shulman and his partner, Jenna Johnson looked on.

Interesting enough, Bristowe follows former ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown as the champ of the ballroom dance floor competition, as Brown won the previous season 28

So, did the right couple win season 29 of DWTS? Let us know via the comment section below. But first check out Kaitlyn and Nev’s final performances that helped determine the winner.
