Dancing With the Stars Week 8 Results: Did the Right Couples Go Home?

Dancing With the Stars Week 8 Results: Did the Right Couples Go Home?Dancing With the Stars Week 8 Results: Did the Right Couples Go Home?

After electing (or should I say re-electing) a president and enduring a brutal hurricane, who can feel guilty about pressing the “pause” button on serious business for a little while and relishing the prospect of a juicy double-elimination on Dancing With the Stars’ Week 8 results show?

A quick, pre-show review of the confusing array of combined scores over the past couple weeks hinted at one clear heave-ho from the All-Stars roster — yes, it looked like time was up for my beloved Kirstie Alley — plus a second, more unpredictable adieu. (Leaderboard be darned, anyone remains fair game at this point.)

Of course, no results show would be complete without the requisite musical performances (the legend that is Kylie Minogue, the Broadway cast of “Newsies”, and Ne-Yo, who were all uniquely dazzling), and of course, some drama-inducing behind-the-scenes clips (including Derek’s requisite slow-motion shirtless-ness).

But without further ado, it’s time we cut to the moment of truth — tonight’s double-whammy results:

ELIMINATION 1: FINAL TWO COUPLES LEFT “IN JEOPARDY”

“The second time around just, it was very special to me … to be asked to come back first of all was an honor,” said a composed Alley of being the latest All-Star to lose out on Mirrorball glory, before graciously adding, “ I just love dancing, I want to thank the judges, because your critiques really helped me…I love you!” We love you too, Kirstie!

ELIMINATION 2: FINAL TWO COUPLES LEFT “IN JEOPARDY”
Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd
Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff

“I felt it, because of those community scores for the last two weeks … it was a bit iffy,” said a dejected Gilles of losing his Mirrorball dream. “I tried my very best, Peta was an angel out there, teaching me,” he added, before throwing some love to his wife in the audience. “Without her, I’m really nothing,” the Brothers & Sisters star added. Now that is the definition of a gentleman, Gilles!

And with that, it’s your turn. Did the right couples get booted? If not, who should have really gone home tonight? Which couples are looking strongest going into next week’s semifinals? Is Len really the grumpy old judge, or a misunderstood love bug? Sound off in the comments! –Mitch Rustad
