Dancing With the Stars Week 7 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

KELLIE PICKLER, DEREK HOUGHWith the hot and heavy lineup of salsas, sambas and rumbas — not to mention the Immunity Challenges and Dance-Offs — that filled the ballroom floor during Monday’s Latin Night festivities, you’d think the tension level going into tonight’s Dancing With the Stars’ live results show would’ve been equally sizzling.

But unless the DWTS producers were planning to pull a fast one via some inexplicable vote-tallying shenanigans (or if Sean Lowe’s hormonally-driven fan base took Monday night off), only one celeb — Andy Dick, at the bottom of the Judges’ Leaderboard with a paltry 17 — seemed likely to bid a fond farewell to his Mirrorball Dreams. That said, Carrie Ann’s ‘5’ for Andy’s rumba was way harsh. Lighten up, girlfriend!

The other sure thing going into tonight’s results: An on-fire Kellie Pickler, whose 29 points for last night’s sensational samba trumped Aly Raisman’s equally-scored salsa (Pickler’s higher season-long totals broke the tie), earned the country songstress a DWTS first — immunity from elimination.

Given this Week 7 lull in the ‘who’s going home’ drama, it’s no surprise that tonight’s show featured a buffed up series of performances, highlighted by silky smooth crooner Michael Bublé and So You Think You Can Dance stars Allison Holker and Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, accompanied by violinist Lindsey Stirling. And how could you not be inspired by Boston marathon bombing victim (and ballroom dancer) Adrianne Haslet’s moving segment?

But without further ado, here’s the real moment of truth — tonight’s results:

“I’ve been talking about it from day one … it’s just been the best,” said Andy, fighting back tears before directing a playful jab at the ‘5’ he got from Carrie Ann (“It was all your fault!”). Before departing, the funnyman added, “The fact that we were here on Week 7 has been amazing,” and then graciously thanked all the fans. “It’s been a wonderful ride.”

And with that, it’s your turn. Which couple should have really gone home tonight — or was it truly Andy’s time? Did you get a jolt of joy from the inspiring Camden Sophisticated Sisters performance? Sound off in the comments!
