Well, no protesters hijacked the dance floor tonight on DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 23, but not a lot else happened either. Most of the couples stabilized in the middle of the pack while only Olympian Laurie Hernandez and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy emerged once again in first place, however, only by one point. Hernandez and Chmerkovskiy earned 32 points for the night, still not grabbing a hold of that elusive “9”. Terra Jole and her partner Sasha Farber glided across the floor into second place with 31 points and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and his partner Allison Holker graced a place in third. At the bottom, yet again,  is Rick Perry who along with Emma Slater petered out just 22 points. Stay tuned for a Tuesday night elimination.

  1. This season rigged more then most even before final contestants picked producers have winner picked. Laurie should not have been winner. Tori Mari lucky Ryan or Jenna would be better choices. Laurie had to much dancing experience then anyone. Saw from first show who they wanted to win. So disappointed. Last viewing of such a rigged show.
