|Ron Artest dribbles from DWTS, "CYA!"|
Artest was stiff and Len Goodman criticized him Monday, saying, "It was all sizzle and no sausage."
This team's departure is unfortunate for Peta Murgatroyd because this was her first season on DWTS, working as a professional dancer.
Artest was extremely gracious in his exit and joked, "Who's coming with me? Who's coming with me?"
Tom Bergeron mused, "So sad to see you go. We can only imagine what you would have brought to the show."
Even though Bergeron announces that the couples in jeopardy are not based on scores, two other couples had their blood pressure raised until the final moments of the show: Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus, and Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke.
What will be interesting to see if there will emerge a fan favorite whose fan voting trumps the judge's scoring the way Bristol Palin rode fan voting all the way to the Dancing With The Stars finals last season, despite mediocre scores from the judges.
Next week, the feet will be moving a little faster as the couples will dance either the Quick Step or the Jive.
We'll see if Chynna Phillips and her partner Tony Dovolani, and the team of J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff can stay atop the leader board.
It was no surprise that Ron Artest was the first to be eliminated from Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday, September 20, 2011. Any bets on who will be eliminated next week? Leave your comments below.
