Greene Remains as Third Celebrity Given Walking Papers.
On the second week of ABC's Dancing with the Stars (DWTS), Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke danced the rhumba to an unfortunate cover of the Marvin Gaye classic "Mercy, Mercy Me", but head judge Len Goodman summed up Maurice's performance saying, “You talk the talk, but you don’t dance the dance.”
This Olympian needs to step it up or he can kiss “winner winner chicken dinner” goodbye.
Week 2 Final Score: Maurice and Cheryl: 19
Kim is out. Celebrity Kim Kardashian of E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star looks fabulous. She is fashionably dressed and has it all going on. There is one small problem: Kardashian's dancing.
Her partner, professional dancer Mark Ballas could not even help matters out.
Maybe our expectations of Kardashian were not properly set from the beginning. One would half-expect the famous socialite, who regularly hits the L.A. party scene, to have spent some time on the dance floor. Isn't that what socialites do at clubs?
Fresh off the beach, Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor is remaining in the competition.
New episodes air on Tuesdays and results air on Wednesdays. The team, consisting of a professional dancer and a celebrity, receiving the lowest combination of judge scores and viewer's scores each week is eliminated from the show.
