Dancing With the Stars results for week eight took place on May 11th. The Dancing With the Stars Results Show elimination for May 11th sent home the seventh celebrity contestant of the 10th season of the show. The lowest score of the May 10 performance show was that of Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel, who scored only 43 out of 60 this week.
It could have put the couple at risk of being in the bottom two for the third time this week, and needing the fans to step in again and save the day. The second worst scores of the night belong to the couple of Erin Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke. During the two dances that they performed (a Tango and a Jive) they scores a 21 out of 30 and a 24 out of 30 to net a total score of just 45 out of 60 for the performance show.
This week, there was a clear leader between the couples as to which one performed the best according to the judges, and that was Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough, who performed a Fox Trot and a Paso Doble on the night. They scored 29 points on one dance, and a perfect score of 30 on the second dance, giving them an overly impressive night of 59 out of 60 possible points.
Everyone had to perform two dances this week, and it ended up creating a few very interesting scores, especially from the couple of Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough. The other two couples, Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya ( who performed a Waltz and a Paso Doble) and Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (who performed a Tango and a Rumba) both scored 53 out of 60 points to put themselves in the middle of the pack heading into the audience voting portion of the week.
What this could do is bring a surprise to which couple is voted out this week, leaving everyone at risk of potentially dancing their swan song at the end of the Dancing With the Stars May 11th episode. Read on to find out if it indeed was a surprise that came through on the May 11 results show, or if it went according to what the judges had thought.
