‘Team MacGrace’ is safe for another week on ABC’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’ after Elisabetta Canalis and partner Val Chmerkovskiy were voted off last night, despite having a respectable judges’ score of 21 points.
Ireland’s favorite ballroom dancer Tristan MacManus and attorney / TV Host Nancy Grace will be back next Monday to battle another round in the ABC primetime hit. Their Monday night performance garnered 21 points from the judges, tying them for third place for the week on the leaderboard. Their result was a marked improvement from premiere week when the couple was in the bottom three and in jeopardy of heading home. In the end, Metta World Peace [Ron Artest] and partner Peta Murgatroyd were sent home last week.
There is some speculation, however, as to whether or not Nancy’s live “nip slip” during hers and Tristan’s quickstep on Monday may have spawned some buzz in order to gain votes. "On the European version that would be perfectly fine," host Tom Bergeron joked. Either way, the couple is safe for another week.
Tristan wasn’t the only Dubliner taking to the DWTS stage on Tuesday night. Performing live on the results show was Dublin’s own The Script, singing their smash hit “For the First Time.” Their performance was accompanied by returning DWTS champions Dmitry Chaplin and Chelsie Hightower, who danced to the song last year. Other performers for Tuesday night included singer Demi Lovato and Macy’s Stars of Dance.
Tune in next Monday to at 8pm live on ABC to cheer on Tristan and Nancy.
