Bristol Palin, Mark Ballas
It's a shame the cameras weren't trained on the Dancing With the Stars judges for the beginning of Bristol Palin's paso doble last night. Because you would've seen all three of them, jaws dropped, astonished. "I never thought I would see this!" raved judge Bruno Tonioli after her performance. "The little lamb is turning into a tigress!"
The truth is, the girl who comes across as reserved and shy has a lot more bite than viewers realize...
Kyle Massey, Kyle MacLachlan
Cheers to a pair of Kyles — Massey and MacLachlan — for stealing their Monday shows.

First, on Dancing With the Stars, lovably puppy-ish underdog Kyle Massey — who had very low name recognition when the season began, outside of Disney Channel viewers — pulled off a classy Viennese waltz with partner Lacey Schwimmer. He earned ...
When Audrina Patridge was booted from ABC's Dancing With the Stars on October 26, head judge Len Goodman called it "ludicrous." One week later, former L.A. Laker Rick Fox shared her fate, while the judges looked on in disbelief. "Shocking elimination tonight," Tweeted judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
As today's TV teens appear in racy plotlines and even skimpier clothes, we want to know if you think there are still good role models for young girls. From teen senstations such as iCarly's Miranda Cosgrove and Disney princess Selena Gomez, to more controversial figures such as singer and star of Hannah Montana Miley Cyrus and...

"It's shocking," says two-time champ Cheryl Burke, moments after she and former L.A. Laker Rick Fox were eliminated from Dancing With the Stars. "It's America's show," says Fox, "and it's out of our control." After their names were announced, the judges' mouths dropped, and you could hear a collective gasp from the studio audience. One man turned to his wife. "He was robbed," he said, simply.
Not that the man wanted Kyle Massey gone, the last contestant standing in jeopardy with Fox. No, the man in the crowd was annoyed because Bristol Palin once again ...
Derek Hough and Jennifer Grey
The Dancing With the Stars surprises are suddenly adding up: Bristol Palin survives, yet again. Audrina Patridge is eliminated and the contestant judge Carrie Ann Inaba dubbed "the chosen one," Jennifer Grey, has to go back to basics before she implodes.
"I think after what happened Monday night I might take a little bit different approach, choreography-wise," says Grey's pro partner, Derek Hough, looking humbled after hearing the judges describing Grey's dancing as out of control and telling her to "calm down." Is he going to simplify the routines?
Dancing With the Stars
Dancing With the Stars belonged to Brandy on October 25 — the singer left her competition in the dust with her dramatic tango and non-stop, booty-shaking energy during the dance marathon. But what everyone in the audience was talking about was the surprisingly strong showing by Bristol Palin, who managed to rack up 23 points for her graceful tango before coming in second-to-last for the marathon...
When Florence Henderson's name was announced as the one to go home from Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday night, nobody was more surprised than Bristol Palin. She was convinced that her time on the dance floor was over. In fact, the Alaskan native said she was ready to go after Monday's show, when she and Mark Ballas donned a monkey outfit, messed up many of the steps to the jive, and landed at the bottom of the leader board for TV Theme Night...
Dancing With The Stars
If you thought that dancing to iconic TV theme songs on Monday night's Dancing With the Stars would give the performers a leg up because they already knew the music, you'd be wrong.
In fact, most the Dancing pros — and at least one star — were either too young or living in a foreign country when American television hits such as Bewitched and Hill Street Blues were on the air. "I had no idea what that song was," says pro Cheryl Burke, who was born in 1984 and danced to Hill Street Blues, which aired from 1981-1987...
