DANCING Kicks off a Cackler; A Shocker of a Semi-Final Elimination
Not since Sherri Shepherd's early departure this season has DANCING (and its audience) announced such a shocking boot. Jenkins will keep on with her Welsh Wiggle, cavorting with a pleasant blankness; Driver will continue to foam at the mouth for a perfect 30; Levy will continue to cause housewives and their daughters (or sons) to wish they were pin-up girls, and thus, worthy of his attention. But Menounos will no longer cackel a la Fran Drescher or caper across the DANCING stage. BroadwayWorld's prediction of her claiming that mirrorball trophy, that perfect piece of mantle decor, is proven unfounded.
Menounos and Driver were the couple up for elimination, though it was she and Hough who ultimately were forced to accept their fate. “She’s not just a champion at dancing, but a champion of life." Well, perhaps she's not entirely a champ - they were the losers this week, afterall. Womp.
In addition to Menounos and Hough's elimination, host Tom Bergeron confirmed that Season 15, coming this fall, will in fact, be the all-star rendition of DANCING. You can expect to see favorite stars from past seasons, Bergeron said, as well as “former champions, finalists, fan favorites and controversial characters.”
Contestants Jenkins, Levy, and Driver will compete next Monday night in the finals, in which one supreme pseudo-celeb will reign. And BroadwayWorld will undoubtedly the cover the whole dazzling, drama-saturated conclusion to DANCING WITH THE STARS' 14th season.
