Tuesday’s episode of "Dancing With The Stars" delivered some surprising results for a couple of the most compelling celebrity dancers. The ABC show had its first real elimination of the season, sending one precocious pair packing.
Prom King and Prom Queen honors go to Jacoby Jones and Zendaya. They’re both safe along with their respective partners, Karina Smirnoff and Val Chmerkovskiy.
Judges Carrie Anne Inaba and Len Goodman were a bit harsh last night, so let’s hope this results show gets puts them in better spirits. Huey Lewis & The News is first guest performance of the night, singing a super snoozey rock song.

The judges choose which couple gets an encore, and Bruno Tunioli decides on Sean Lowe and Petra Murgatroyd’s “YMCA” cha cha -- though I’m not sure why since it wasn’t that great the first time.
Meanwhile, Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough are safe. No surprise there, as their jive won Tuesday night’s high score.
D.L. Hughley is still upset about the judges’ harsh critiques. This comedian can’t take a joke, which is shocking considering the nature of his own sets. However, none of that matters now as he and pro partner Cheryl Burke are also sticking around.

The guys do a pretty cool group number before hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet get back to business: it’s time to learn the fate of four more couples. Victor Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold are next to learn they’re safe, while "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump is back on the chopping block despite Monday night’s stronger showing.
Also on the bottom are Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess. This is crap! What’s wrong with America? Yes, his dance moves could use some work, but there’s no other celebrity as endearing and compelling as the reformed bad boy.
After another really rad performance from the pros, this time to Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven," it seems it’s finally time to hear who is headed home. But psych! It’s actually not. It’s actually time to see another guest performer. In this instance, it’s Demi Lovato singing her hit, “ Heart Attack.”
After much hub-bub, Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas are announced as the next couple to head to the winner’s circle along with Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson. This leaves Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani in the third and final hot seat. I think the country star has too much fan support to go home this early. My money is on Lisa as the reality stars never last long.
But thank goodness I’m wrong wrong WRONG as Lisa and Gleb are safe. In the end, America agrees with me that Andy Dick needs to be here as Wynonna Judd is headed home to her husband.
“I faced some of my biggest fears and made a lifetime friend out of Tony,” she says of the experience. Sweet.
