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

Watch Anne, Chrishell and Jesse’s dances below, plus the high point of the night in Skai Jackson’s performance.   Then let us know what you thought about the Tyra snafu and Anne Heche being sent home in the comment section.

UPDATED: Cody Rigsby, the Peloton fitness instructor, who is competing for the Mirror Ball trophy in the all-new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars has been diagnosed with Covid-19.

The news comes just days after his pro dance partner, Cheryl Burke announced she tested positive for Covid-19 and had to quarantine, thus she and Cody did not dance in the ballroom on Monday night.  However, they were judged by one of their rehearsals, which was pre-taped.

However news on Friday morning revealed that Cody and Cheryl will dance this coming Monday night in a unique format – dancing in separate rooms next week. Good Morning America retweeted the news, from ABc7 Los Angeles correspondent Zohreen Shah. ( You can see the tweet below)

Previously, now comes word via an Instagram post and message from Rigsby himself  that he, too, is now  sidelined from the competition.

Cody expressed: “I have tested positive for Covid again, the second time this year. I right now have really mild symptoms: congestion, little bit of a headache, cough, but in comparison to when I had Covid earlier this year, it is night and day, so that must be the vaccine and the antibodies working. So we’re super grateful for that. As far as my fate on Dancing With the Stars, we are still trying to figure that out right now, so please be patient with that answer.

In his written post, Rigsby added: ” Hi friends, I wanted to check in with you to share some news. While I am fully vaccinated and took many precautions, following CDC guidelines, I recently tested positive for Covid-19. To properly rest and recover as well as avoid exposing others, I will be taking a break in the coming days. I appreciate all your support, and I’ll be back as soon as I am ready.”

So, what do you think of Cody now being diagnosed with Covid after Cheryl? What do you think about the latest update that they will dance on Monday in a unique format? Share your thoughts below.  We are wishing Cody and Cheryl speedy recoveries!

I figured I should let you guys know since I’ve been as open and as a real and as vulnerable as I could be here.  I just hope I didn’t spread it. For those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s f–king real, dude.”
