Wow. That's about all that could be said after watching last night's Dancing with the Stars, which featured one of the most shocking eliminations in series history, if not for all reality shows that have ever existed. (Slight hyperbole.) Star Heather Morris finally reunited with her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy for the Boy Bands vs Girl Groups performances, and the duo received a perfect score for their killer rumba to a '90s classic. Still, Morris and Maks were eliminated, and here's how the former Glee star feels about that baffling turn of events.
I don't think anyone would have really expected Heather Morris to get vocally vicious on Len Goodman and the rest following last night's episode, since that's not her M.O. A little snark or something might have been appropriate, but no, Morris goes out taking taking the high road, giving thanks for being able to get back on the dance floor with Maks Chmerkovskiy, who had been absent since the second episode, due to a calf injury. Not that it would have done her much good to go negative, considering there were many Dancing with the Stars viewers who protested her inclusion, given her background in professional (though non-partnered and non-ballroom) dancing.
The rumba, set to TLC's "Waterfalls," started off on an amusing note, with Heather Morris' interim partner Alan Bersten attempting to reclaim his spot with her before Maks playfully pushed him back. And then some well-timed sexy dancing happened, and it earned the pair a quartet of 10s. But when all was said and done and the group performances were thankfully complete, Morris and Maks were on the chopping block, proving not that not even perfection is an advantage in every situation.
For those wondering what Maks Chmerkovskiy thought about it all, here's what the dancer told E!
With more questionable judgment calls yet to come -- and a potential elimination that William Shatner can't wait for -- Dancing with the Stars airs Monday nights on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET.
