The second week competitions on “Dancing With the Stars” 2014 aired last night on ABC and the dancing partners were warned almost immediately there would be a double elimination. People reported on March 24 the details of how the dancing night played out.
One of the surprises of the evening occurred when Billy Dee Williams, the lowest scorer on the board, was saved early on. His tango performance with Emma Slater, after being saved, was still critiqued by a judge who said it, “didn’t having enough attack.”
Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke did an amazing job of exciting the crowd with their jive performance. Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy were given overall praise from the judges on their samba dance routine. Another dancing duo that will advance on is Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “Full House” fan favorite Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas will also continue to compete.
James Maslow's salsa with Peta Murgatroyd grabbed everyone’s attention. Maslow showed off his abs, which got him big praise from Inaba!
In the end, it was Avery and Karina Smirnoff who were eliminated. Diana Nyad and partner Henry Byalikov were also sent home last night.
The rules have changed this season on “DWTS” and with the changes it is not guaranteed the dancing partners will remain the same.
“Dancing With the Stars” airs Monday nights on ABC at 7 p.m. CST.
