Dancing With the Stars Week 8 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

Dancing With the Stars Week 8 ResultsFollowing Andy Dick’s inevitable departure last week, we entered a new, anything-goes era on Week 8 of Dancing With the Stars. Or perhaps I should say, anyone goes, because from here on out, no celeb (except maybe Zendaya) is truly safe from a shocking ballroom boot.

But leaderboard watching aside, I’d have to say the most epic “highlight” this week wasn’t Zendaya’s perfectly scored Trio salsa, but head judge Len Goodman’s Monday-night meltdown. He initially aimed his rancor at Kellie Pickler’s grandiose paso doble Trio (a ‘7,’ Len, really?), and then turned on poor Bruno, asserting the Italian judge has a pole inserted right where the sun doesn’t shine (“You can’t talk unless you stand up!”). As Tom Bergeron so eloquently put it, I don’t know you anymore, Len!

On the bright side, Len’s latest visit to Cranky Town is destined to garner a special spot in the DWTS Hall of Fame (or Shame), and Bruno’s battering probably landed him a whole new slew of Twitter followers. It’s a win-win, people!

But as we waited to see if ABC (um, I mean America’s voters) would save leaderboard bottom-dweller Sean Lowe for one more week, or shock us senseless with a nonsensical elimination, we had to pass the time with musical performances by Jason Derulo, Emeli Sande and the interminable – if gravity-defying — Macy’s Stars of Dance.

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

Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough
Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd

“I’ve enjoyed every second of it,” said Lowe, as sad-eyed fiancé Catherine Giudici looked on. “I truly am blessed to have taken part in this, with all these stars. I’m still just a normal guy from Dallas. What an incredible opportunity!”

And with that, it’s your turn. Which couple should have really gone home tonight, or was it Sean’s time to exit? Which celeb is peaking going to the semi-finals? Sound off in the comments!
