Dancing With the Stars Review: Fear the Palins!

at .

Thanks to Jennifer Grey and people named Palin, Dancing With the Stars' 11th season is off to a buzz-filled start. Yes, people named Palin, as in plural. Sarah was there last night.

Cheering on daughter Bristol the Pistol, who turned in a heck of a quickstep, it's worth noting, Sarah Palin probably drew more attention than anyone who took the stage Monday.

Not all of that attention was positive, either.

Footage appeared to show that the audience booed Palin on Dancing With the Stars, although ABC says they were just booing Grey's low score. Which was the best all night, BTW.

Follow the above clip to watch Sarah's amazing appearance in all its glory, then follow the jump for last night's scores. We think we know who's going home on the results show ...

  1. Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough: 24
  2. Audrina Patridge & Tony Dovolani: 23
  3. Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas: 22
  4. Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer: 22
  5. Brandy & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 21
  6. Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya: 21
  7. Rick Fox & Cheryl Burke: 21
  8. Florence Henderson & Corky Ballas: 19
  9. Margaret Cho & Louis van Amstel: 18
  10. The Situation & Karina Smirnoff: 18
  11. Michael Bolton & Chelsie Hightower: 12

Michael Bolton's performance really was as bad as that 12 indicates. The doghouse bit was apt, it turned out, as well as a little disturbing because it's Michael Bolton. Poor guy.

At least he gave it his best, you gotta give him credit. Hey, maybe he'll garner a whole lot of Gosselin-esque sympathy votes too. If so, a trio of other celebs could be on the way out.

We doubt it. Margaret Cho was better than her score suggested, we thought, while The Situation has Guido Nation behind him. Bolton's gonna hit the bricks tonight. Bank on it.

Meanwhile, Audrina Patridge, Kyle Massey and Rick Fox established themselves as legit talents, as did Bristol. If last night's scores are any indication, this season could be tight.

What did you think of last night's dances? Who are you rooting for, and who do you think will be sent packing? Leave a comment below, we want to know what you think ...
