|DWTS says goodbye to Val and Elisabetta.|
Chaz Bono was at the bottom of the leader board on Monday, with a score of 17. Elisabetta Canalis was in a four way tie in third place with a score of 21.
What I call "Fan Effect" kicked in to override the judge's scores. We saw this last season with Bristol Palin. Bono has his famous mother, Cher, a true Diva with a huge worldwide fan base that must have carried him along. He also is the poster boy/girl for the transgender crowd. Canalis is famous in Italy and as a fashion model. Print models don't talk, so unless they've worked the talk show circuit extensively in the U.S., you really don't know them. When she first appeared on the show and her name was announced, I said, "Who is Elisabetta Canalis?" and I'm sure I wasn't alone.
Second lowest for combined scores and voting were David Arquette and Kym Johnson. Along with Arquette and Johnson, Bono was in that nervous final three in jeopardy.
Ricki Lake and Derek Hough who topped the leader board with a 23 performed an encore of their DWTS leading dance from Monday.
Musical entertainment was provided by The Script and Demi Lovato.
A highlight of the show was a dance number done in the Busby Berkeley style. It's worth checking the tape of the show on the ABC/DWTS website.
Next week, the dancers will perform a dance that tells a story from their lives. This is always one of the most emotional shows of the season.
A low score, combined with bad knees and ankles could not keep Chaz Bono fans from voting and he lives to dance again after the Dancing With The Stars Week 2 Results on Tuesday, September 27, 2011. Dance on Chaz, dance on.
