DWTS Week Four Results: Palin Sent Home

Wednesday, Oct. 17-

The All-Stars picked teams for their group dance next week and Palin was sent home on the “Dancing with the Stars” results show on Tuesday night.

After three groups of all-stars, Bristol Palin, Apolo Ohno, and Kirstie Alley were left in jeopardy. Ohno was the first contestant in jeopardy to be declared safe, and joined the rest of the group that will perform next week.

Macy’s Stars of Dance performed during the results show to Sia’s “Titanium.” Carson Kressley presented a behind the scenes tour during the performances Monday Night. Professional dancer Cheryl Burke performed a Cha Cha Cha with two couples she grew up dancing with. Season 9 winner Donny Osmond returned to perform a duet with Susan Boyle.

Despite her consistent low scores, Palin was in the bottom two for only the second time this season. Her scores for this week put her out of last place for the first time since the first week of the competition.

Alley had the lowest scores this week for the second time this season. Dancing the Charleston, picked by competitor Sabrina Bryan, Alley was commended for dancing to her strengths by judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

Even though Palin escaped the lowest dancing score, she could not escape being eliminated.

Next week the contestants will have two performances, one with their partner based on the all-stars “guilty pleasure” song and a freestyle group dance.

The teams for the group dance were chosen “school-yard style” by having the couples with the highest-cumulative scores as captains: Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough, and Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke.

Marini’s team includes Kelly Monaco, Alley, and Emmitt Smith. The group will do a freestyle dance to “Gangnam Style.”

Johnson’s team of Bryan, Ohno, and Melissa Rycroft will dance to Carly Rae Jepson’s summer hit “Call Me Maybe.”

There will be no elimination next week, but still two nights of “Dancing with the Stars.” The first night of dances begins Monday, October 22, at 7 pm central time.
