Dancing with the Stars Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson, Bids Farewell to Natalie Coughlin

at . Comments

In an impressive tribute that cynics might write off as a ratings stunt, Dancing with the Stars honored Michael Jackson last night.

Sister La Toya was actually on hand to introduce the routine the show's professionals put together. In the video below, they shower praise on MJ and then honor him in the best way they can:

Swimmer Natalie Coughlin was eliminated, meanwhile, as we continue to wonder why Michael Irvin is still around.

Incredibly, he didn't even find himself in the bottom two last night. Aaron Carter was stuck in that position. Soon after she was given the boot, Coughlin said:

"I loved this so much. I guess I didn't show it, how much I loved it, but I really did. I'm sorry."
