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.
