Dancing With the Stars Results Show: Grace Period

at . Comments

Did this week's Dancing With the Stars results show offer another big surprise?

Not really. Had they, after Monday's performances, there would've been revolt.

After Monday performances that saw J.R. Martinez cement his frontrunner status on Dancing With the Stars, and with Ricki Lake and Rob Kardashian looking consistently strong, they were safe.

It came down to Hope Solo, who improved a lot, but maybe not enough for the fans, and Nancy Grace, the clear weak link after Monday's routines. And at the end of the day, the weak link left.

Nancy Grace was ousted on Dancing With the Stars.

No one could really be surprised by that outcome - Len predicted the previous night after she performed that it was Cinderella time for the HLN host, who far exceeded expectations to get this far.

"I am so proud, but I really cannot take the credit," she said.

"It's been all Tristan, from the get-go," she said of partner Tristan MacManus. "The whole crew at DWTS, my family taking care of my twins so I could dance, all of you - and especially to you, Tristan."

"We've had a blast," the Irish dance pro said, seconding Grace. "We'd just like to thank everybody. Thanks for being so welcoming to me, and also to Nancy. It's the support we get from you all that really pushes us to do this."

"It's not about being the best, it's about doing our best, and I think that's what we did."

If you'll excuse the pun, that was certainly a Grace-ful exit. Well done, all.

Do you think America made the right call ousting Nance? Who do you think will be in jeopardy next week? Who's your pick to make it all the way to the finals to battle it out for the Mirror Ball?
