The producers of DANCING WITH THE STARS are doing everything they can to mix things up this season, some good and some bad. Tonight they eliminated one couple in the middle of the show before they even danced – Diana Nyad & Henry Byalikov – and then allowed them to dance afterward. The twist was that there was another couple eliminated at the show’s end – Mr. Smiley face himself – Sean Avery & his unfortunate partner Karina Smirnoff. It’s no wonder he was ousted from the show – he always looked like he was about to kick someone’s ass, refusing to smile. Still, Billy Dee Williams & Emma Slater managed to extend their stay on the dance floor after dismal scores last week – 15. But, will they be able to hold on next week with the same disappointing scores? The STAR WARS fans are the only ones who can save them now. The top spot was owned by three couples this week who earned 25 points – Meryl David & Maks Chmerkovskiy, James Maslow & Peta Murgatroyd, and Charlie White & Sharna Burgess.
