So TV personality and formerly injured Melissa Rycroft is cementing her tap-shoes into the very highest spot on the board - and Alley's cement feet have sunk her to the bottom. With a double-elimination tomorrow, and the reckless abandon many DANCING voters show, it's anyone's guess as to who will be forced to bid their fame adieu. Could be Alley at the bottom, could be middle-man Emmitt Smith comfortably stomping around on one foot like a linebacker. There's no sure-fire way to tell with DANCING - I think after Bryan's elimination a few weeks back, we can all agree to that.
In addition to the performances and hopes of a just elimination tomorrow, DANCING WITH THE STARS host Brooke Burke-Charvet announced last week via YouTube that she had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. We wish her the best of luck and a quick, full recovery. We have no doubts Burke-Charvet will make it through her personal and physical battle unscathed, and be back to wrangle in the celeb-wildebeests on the next season of DANCING WITH THE STARS.
DANCING WITH THE STARS returns tomorrow night - with a performance from the cast of NEWSIES - be sure to check back on BroadwayWorld to find out who was sent home.
