Mike Catherwood's departure

View Results

Loading ... Loading ...

In perhaps the least shocking results show ever, what’s-his-face was the first “celebrity” out on “Dancing With the Stars” Tuesday night.

Some guy named Mike Catherwood (allegedly a radio DJ) got the fewest votes. His clunky dancing didn’t help him as he was at the bottom of the judges’ scoring heap as well.

At least he took the departure with good humor. After Tom Bergeron noted other celebrated participants who were ousted first such as Jeffrey Ross, David Hasselhoff and Kenny Mayne, Catherwood mused, “I’m part of the Mount Rushmore of terrible dancers.” He then showed off some of bad white-boy dance moves.

Although boxer Sugar Ray Leonard shared the departing stage with Catherwood, he didn’t necessarily get the fewest votes.

He was certainly one of the disappointing dancers, along with Wendy Williams Kirstie Alley and Ralph Macchio, early fan favorites, showed off more skills than expected.  And UGA grad Hines Ward certainly has a shot at the finals based on his first two dances.

Controversial singer/dancer Chris Brown first performed “Yeah (3X”)” with obvious Auto-tuned lip syncing while he did backflips and fleet footwork. Then he did an interesting “Forever” with plenty of lit dancers. But we heard nary a word from him, which is just as well.

yea hosts, contestants didn’t seem to have a whole lot to do with chris brown – and i can’t blame them. he really shouldn’t have been on anyway, his act did not seem to fit. yea ‘psycho mike’ is probably the worst dancer ever, but he would b the 1st to admit it. i like most every1 else, but i expected better from wendy williams, who is one of my favorites. that is all

I think Windy Williams is one of the worst dancers on the show. I think she should be the next one to be thrown off the show. She looks and sounds like a man. My favorites are Kirsty, Ralph and Hines. Hope they are in the top 3 at the end of the show.

Dancing with the stars: let them do three weeks of dances.

A 2×4 can dance better than most of the ’stars’ on this show.
It is a fun show to watch at the 8pm hour…has ‘Mike Catherwood’ come out yet?

Wendy Williams looks like she used Michael Jackson’s plastic surgeon–seriously–look at her nose and cheeks. Anyhow she is a terrible dancer with an attitude to match. Hopefully she will be the next one to get booted.

Please leave the Chris Brown thing alone. The saying is ” If you don’t have anything nice to say just don’t say anything at all”. I love you Chris.

See? Chris didn’t say a word, and folk still talking smack about him. Hurt people {try} to hurt people. Go Chris. Congrats on being #1. It’s your talent we should be focusing on, not your personal drama. Or anyone else’s for that matter . . . let it go!

Wendy Williams used to be a man, right?

@RealTalk-You are right he really got a bad rap when he used ‘ol girl as a punching bag. Maybe you should let him date your sister or daughter to help clean up his image.

I have seen some TERRIBLE lip-synching before, but last night Chris Brown’s was perhaps the all-time worst lip-synch ever. Wow. Why bother to insult people’s intelligence?

I think Wendy must have turned ol’ Toby down for a second date or something LOL!

And the worst part of Mike Catherwood getting voted off early last night is we don’t get to see any more of his hot dance partner Lacy this season. I would have voted to keep him on just to look at her. She is smokin!

Chris didn’t say anything because his performance was pre-taped.

Ace and Amanda are on the mark with “Miss Williams. She has lead feet, no rhythm, and no upper body movements. Watch her next week.

Having them perform for 3 weeks is a good idea, Savage. However I do not agree with what you said about Chris Brown. I do not believe his career should suffer from what happened 2 years ago. There is a lot the public does not know about that night and he is trying to get past it just like Rihanna has.
Yes, Wendy Williams is a terrible dancer with a bad attitude that looks like a man. I had no idea who this Mike guy was but I enjoyed looking at him. I liked Lacey to, she was great on So You Think You Can Dance.

The black community will continue to forgive Chris Brown… why… because he is BLACK. They refuse to acknowledge when one of their “peoples” is wrong.. it’s a black thing guess I don’t understand.

Why does Dancing With the Stars keep matching Tony Dovolani with the worst dance partners? I can’t understand why Wendy Williams would have agreed to take on such a task. She looks like a granny who has arthritis and is afraid to move on the dance floor. I would like to see Tony have someone that is capable of getting out there and shaking her booty. He deserves better because in my opinion he is so deserving of showing that he is a great teacher, but with someone who has such low self esteem on the dance floor, as Wendy Williams, is so unfair to Tony.

@Rodney Ho Moe & @Captain Midnight: Who says the Black community is supporting Chris/giving him multiple chances?? Who do you think got him on Good Morning America and DWTS? Black People? DOUBT IT!

ABC (America’s Black Channel) got him on ‘Duh’ showz. Hehehe.

@Rodney Ho Moe, @Captain Midnight… So are you saying that black people actually influence who appears on Good Morning America and DWTS… Yeah right !?!?… I guess he gets as many chances as Lindsay, Paris, Charlie, etc…

Scratch, quick question, Who did Paris assault again? Who did Lindsay assault again? Last I heard, Charlie was fired from his job.Chris Brown beat up a girl. He’s a P.O.S. Keep defending him. Ya’ll are just proving our point.

Charlie was fired from his job after he insulted Chuck Lorre. He still had a job when he choked and threatened to kill his wife. He continued to work when he “accidentally” shot Kelly Preston. And finally, he is 45 years old. He has been given 2nd chances for over 2 decades.
