Two-time DWTS champion Julianne Hough appeared as a guest judge on Monday night’s episode of “Dancing With the Stars” and provided loving criticism with a spoonful of sugar. But for Valerie Harper her party on the show ended, and she left behind an indelible mark of good nature and high spirit.
Ten couples remained on week four of “Dancing With the Stars” however with the new format that combines elimination night with performances, one unlucky celebrity must leave the competition. Unfortunately for Valerie Harper, it was time to exit the ballroom, which left nine couples vying for the mirror ball trophy. Valerie didn’t want sympathy or special treatment because of her cancer diagnosis and took each critique with a warm smile. She strives for the opportunity to enjoy her life to the fullest and set a powerful example for all.
The DWTS competition has not seen outstanding performances, with all of the celebrities ending the evening on an almost equal playing field. However, many of the stars and pros are suffering with one type of injury or another.
Three couples topped the leader board, with Valerie and Tristan at the bottom. The last duo to dance, Bill and Emma, were notified of their fate immediately after they heard their scores and were told they were safe to perform next week on “Dancing With the Stars.”
