Who Got Booted Off 'Dancing'?
September 20, 2011
Emotions were running high at the start of Dancing with the Stars' first results show of the season on Tuesday which ended with a shocker. If you don't want to know who won, read no further!
In light of the NBA lockout, it might be a boring fall for Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, as he and pro partner Peta Murgatroyd were sent home.
The Los Angeles Laker took his loss in stride, raising his hands as if he'd won.
In an apparent ode to Jerry Maguire, Metta asked "Who's coming with me?" to no one in particular.
"I just mourn all of the antics we're going to miss from this moment on," commented Tom Bergeron, who considered Metta's farewell to be one of the most gracious goodbyes in the show's history.
Also on the results show, Harry Connick Jr. performed "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" from his Broadway revival of the same name that opens December 11.
The singer admitted that he had a good feeling about Chaz Bono's chances in the competition. Later, Chaz' pro partner Lacy Schwimmer could hardly hide her surprise when they were deemed safe from elimination.
Watch what the remaining dancers whip up next Monday on Dancing with the Stars on ABC.
