Update: Annie’s recap is live. Don’t click through if you don’t want to know! After TWO hours of “The Road to the Finals,” NKOTBSB, and a very special Pia Toscano performance, the contestant twirling off the planks and heading home tonight is…. 

Chris Jericho and his professional partner Cheryl Burke. It’s okay — he has to go to the Royal Wedding anyway!

Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff joined Chris “in jeopardy.”

Bruno Tonioli and Dopey the dwarf encourage DANCMSTRs ’round the world to discuss tonight’s results, check out the Hidden Gems of Week 6, and come back later on for my full elimination recap.

    Classy guy and talented…

    • Jethro

      All of you bloggers want Kendra to go, so don’t vote for her. She keeps coming back because the voting is rigged and she makes great TV.

      We will never know how the real voting works, just like Idol, so enjoy watching the bad ones continue to remain on their respective shows and the ratings will continue to remain high!!

  • katie

    Sad to see him go. He has done well and has a great personality.

    I really want Chelsea to go. She has done well, but she bores me. I don’t see how she has that many fans? Also, Kendra, go home please.

    • spant

      Tina…Kendra can’t dance, Kirstie can!! That’s why Kendra has to to! I’m with Katie!

      • Ann

        Definitely should have been Kendra going off tonite. She doesn’t dance, just shakes. That’s not what the competion is about.

    • debi

      kendra should have been gone two weeks ago- she really can’t dance…it’s uncomfortable to watch her actually!

      • Sunny

        It is very painful to watch Kendra dance. Each one of her dances look like there should be a stripper in the middle of it. Pam anderson had more class than her.

    • mama

      This is a great season… all ‘stars’ are good. Chris was such a classy guy… loved a couple of his dances. Cute to boot.

  • DM

    I’m a huge Chris Jericho fan and I will miss team Chericho…I’m glad he had the opportunity to break the negative stereotypes that the term “wrestler” brings up. Hopefully he will soon return to the WWE and continue to entertain wrestling fans. Maybe he created a few more fans for himself in the last few weeks.

    • Bonnie Morris

      I have become a big fan of Chris Jericho and thought he really did a great job dancing on the show. For a big guy, he was still very light on his feet and displayed a very classy attitude. I was so sorry to see him get voted out.

      • Mina

        I agree!! He displayed elegance and emotion on every dance he did!

      • Katja

        Same. I rarely, rarely vote before the finals, but I voted for Chris Jericho last night because I have really enjoyed watching him on the show. I’m sorry to see him leave, especially before Kendra (who I have no major beef with, I’m just kind of tired of her attitude, and her dancing isn’t THAT good that I’m okay with her staying over Jericho).

  • spant

    Wish they’d can Kendra!!

    • coco lafay

      So do I !!!! Bad dancer , bad attitutde.

  • JIm

    Honestly, I hope Chris doesn’t go back to wrestling. He’s an author, a musician, and it would be sad for him to diminish himself over the years and turn out to be a Ric Flair.

    • Presto

      He’s too smart for that.

    • DM

      I certainly don’t want him to turn into Ric Flair but with Edge gone and the WWE obviously hurting with most of their big stars retiring or simply leaving they could use his presence even if it’s on a part time basis…I wish him nothing but success in everything he does.

  • Susan

    He’s a class act

  • Electronic Neko

    I’m gonna miss Chris! He has such a great attitude.

    Was it just me or did Howie sound terrible?

  • Bronte

    What does it take to get rid of Kendra?!?! Her dance last night consisted of shaking her boobs, but not much else. She should have gone weeks ago. Chris was a good dancer with a great attitude. He will be missed.

    • Allison

      I agree with your assessment of Kendra – I think there’s a reason that the booty-shaking dance was the only one she’s done well.

    • Jay

      Tina, Kirstie is a friend of mine and she is doing amazing. why all the hate… Is that all you post here is Kirstie hate? how classless and immature.

    • Christy

      Kirstie did a complete, technical samba, which included the hardest Samba step – the Samba Rolls. For her extremely difficult content, completed with precise footwork, she was rewarded. It’s as simple as that.

      If you go step by step and count the authentic dance steps completed from the required dance, Kirstie’s was highly deserving of her scores and extremely well done.

      It is possible to actually be objective about Kirtie’s dance because it was so filled with content.

  • RUCookie

    who is voting for Kendra?

    • T

      That’s the $100,000 question.

    • Barb

      Who is voting for her? People who feel sorry for her because of all the comments calling her a skank. It’s the pity vote.

    • Kat

      I’m really not a fan of referring to her as a skank. She’s married with a kid and seems to suffer from major confidence issues. Her attitude has been kind of sucky, but I really don’t think she deserves to be called a skank at this point.

    • KC

      I am, and BTW, I’m not a skank, and neither is she. Women (and men) need to stop using that type of derogatory language about women. What is she doing that’s “skanky”?

      • J-Mac

        KC..are you sure your initials arent actually PC? If not, then watch out everyone, the PC police are out and about defending the skanks of the world! Whoops, that wasnt very PC was it?

    • Observant

      Um…the pole girls?

    • PN

      I think that the people voting for Kendra are wanting to see her improve in the ballroom dancing, to see if she can get better in the scoring. I thought she was good on Monday despite that sexy dancing on the table in front of Len Goodman. Her dancing and energy was solid.

      • Christy

        I agree. Kendra seems sort of like a wayward child. People are thinking if she just stays long enough, she’ll get some sort of epiphany and some confidence.

        I made me so sad to see her revert to the stripper thing this week. She seemed to want to get out of that mode so badly at the beginning.

  • crasher

    Chris was such a fun guy… did you hear his Len impersonations!!?? It should have been Kendra!!!!

  • pylgrym

    Sorry to see him go. Had no idea who he was but really liked him and thought he was underscored. I liked him much better than Hinds who I think is a smug phony

    • vivir

      Hines is a sweet guy. He says he wants to win, but don’t they all?

    • @ pylgrym

      Hines isn’t a smug phony, quite the opposite actually. I’ve worked with him through our charity a handful of times over the years. He’s a genuine person and it’s nice that America gets to see it.

      • Alice

        Is this site sponsored by Hines? Because, although I’m not a Kendra fan, she is called every name in the book. As well as Kirstie. But Hines seems untouchable. Mysterious!

      • Alice

        P.S. I hope Ralph stays in the game. He’s a doll.

      • vivir

        A lot of people like you are criticizing Hines and calling him derogatory names. The untouchable comment is a gross exaggeration. Kendra is a good dancer and seems like a good hearted person but she often, like Drew Lachey commented, has no filter when she speaks.

      • vivir

        I’m sorry, @pylgrym. That was for Alice.

      • Alice

        @viver, just to be clear, I have NEVER called Hines, or any other dancer, derogatory names. I wrote my comment because the name-calling of both Kirstie and Kendra has been terrible. Maybe some of them have been taken off, thank goodness. It just seemed–and maybe I’m wrong–that saying “Hines is overrated” wouldn’t post whereas Kendra is “fill in the blank” would post. The show is fun, and I think we can all have our opinions without the derogatory names.

  • Ren Cade

    It’s sad that Chris had to go, but is anyone else happy Ralph and Karina got to stay :D

    • Cindy

      Kendra should have gone before Chris. I am not dwelling on that, however, because I am thrilled that Ralph is still in the competition.

    • mama

      I am happy Ralph is still there. Afraid his fan base isn’t that big for next week. I like all of them.

  • Presto

    First of all, I have to say, good GOLLY that Pia Toscano has a voice. (I admit, I don’t watch American Idol. Sorry.) That kid’s got a future.

    Second, I hated to see Jericho go, but honestly I’m in love with everybody at this point. I’m a former Girls Next Door watcher, and I like Kendra. She’s not as good a dancer as Chris, but there it is.

    (Just so you know, I voted for Chris last night and not Kendra.)

    • vivir

      I haven’t watched Idol this year, and I wondered what all the fuss was about. Now I know. She is incredible.

    • PN

      Pia sounded great in that performance on Tuesday night! Even better than when she did that same song on American Idol. With Harold Wheeler live band and that big, full, rich sound behind her, she really pulled it off!

    • mama

      Right on… Pia’s voice gives me goosebumps and the fact that she is already ‘out there’ and signed a recording contract before the Idol season is over… says something.

  • Mina

    So sad to see Chris go, he was such a gentleman!! I wish him luck!

  • Busterbrown

    Too bad for Chris. Kendra and Kirstie should have been voted off a couple of weeks ago. How they survive is a mystery. Both beligerent and arrogant. Give them the boot ASAP. Although trying to move Kirstie off the stage will be a challenge.

    • tina

      They don’t seem arrogant at all, they look like they’re having fun to me.

    • Allison

      I’m actually voting for Kirstie, because I thought she was hilarious in “Look Who’s Talking” and she’s always had great hair. But I give more votes to Hines.

    • mama

      I voted for Kirstie and Maks. She looks phenomenal for being 60 and Maks is like sex on a stick… and many of us like that. ;-) Kirstie has the same fan base that brought Marie Osmond to the finals. We are cougars… get over it. LMAO.
