Dancing With The Stars turned spooky for Halloween, as the live show paid tribute to the holiday, with Leah Remini acting as temporary co-host as Erin Andrews attended the World Series. Bindi and Derek topped Dancing With The Stars again this week, while Hayes and Emma packed their dancing shoes and went home.
A live Dancing With The Stars had its shocking on-air moments this week. Co-host Leah Remini, who was talking with Tamar Braxton and partner Val Chmerkovskiy, took a tumble on live air after pro Shasha Farber snuck up behind her in a clown mask, reports E! News.
A shocked Leah fell right over — and, as Dancing With The Stars co-host Tom Bergeron pointed out, did not peep more than a “[d]amn you!” on live air. Remini wasn’t hurt in the surprising fall, although the Dancing With The Stars audience got a laugh at Remini’s expense.
“I know Leah pretty well,” Bergeron admitted before heading into a commercial break, reports E! News. Tom confessed that “the thing that I admire most about this [episode of Dancing With The Stars] is that when she was frightened, there were at least seven words that didn’t come out of her mouth. I’m so impressed with her.”
During this week’s spooky Dancing With The Stars, co-host Tom thanked the “orthodontist to the undead,” in reference to all the fangs the dancers featured this week.
It was unfortunately a down week for Tamar and Val, with the pair ending in last place. Although Hayes and Emma, who earned 26 points out a possible 30, went home, Tamar and Val were still in danger of being sent packing.
Tamar, who said during a Dancing With The Stars video interview that she is “the best dancer in the competition,” was stunned as judge Julianne Hough confessed there is “still a disconnect when you guys dance together.” Judges did acknowledge Tamar is a strong dancer, but the chemistry is not right with her Dancing With The Stars partner.
But they were saved, while a crushed Hayes and Emma were dropped from the show. Tom tried to console Emma, telling her that at least she went “out on a night where you excelled.”
Hayes had only praise for his Dancing With The Stars experience, confessing “[a]ll those guys, they’re brilliant people.” He explained that being on Dancing With The Stars“has meant so much to me; it’s been really life-changing,” reports Us.
While the decision to send Hayes and Emma home was shocking, Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough did not shock by topping this week’s Dancing With The Stars list of performers, earning a perfect score yet again.
Bindi and Derek knocked it out of the park on this week’s Dancing With The Stars, paying tribute to vampires with their Argentine Tango. Earning a perfect score yet again, Bindi stunned in a sparkly blood-red gown, and transformed her long brown locks into serpentine spit curls for the special Halloween performance. Caked white makeup that gave Bindi Irwin a pallid and zombie-like complexion rounded out her appearance for her latest dance.
A blood thirsty Irwin became the “queen of darkness,” according to Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba, as Bindi channeled her darker side as the vampire queen, reports Us magazine. Inaba loved the spooky performance, telling Irwin it was her best dance yet.
Judge Julianne Hough said she loved the “deep-rooted” feel of Irwin and Hough’s performance, while Bruno Tonioli, the third judge to give the dynamic duo a perfect score, said the Dancing With The Stars performance was an “Argentine tango master class,” and hailed Bindi Irwin and Derek’s “spellbinding dance magic,” reports Us.
Dancing With The Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
