There was an uneasy feeling in our stomach for the entire “Dancing With the Stars” results show. Week 8 marks the final obstacle before the semifinals — and all five stars clearly want to make it.
Each of them, for one reason or another, does deserve a place in the penultimate performance night. But someone had to go home, and it ended up being Romeo and partner Chelsie Hightower.
It’s not that much of a surprise. Romeo and Ralph Macchio were in the bottom spots at the end of the episode, after Chelsea Kane was quite deservedly told she was safe. And though he didn’t score as low as his senior competitor, Ralph’s been a favorite since week 1 and his injury clearly garnered him a lot of favor with fans and voters.
So what do you think… Should Ralph’s injury have knocked him out of the competition? Or had Romeo run his course?
Personally, we’re glad to see Ralph get the chance to rebound next week. Sound off on the semis in the comments.
