Dancing With The Stars: Gavin Degraw Finally Gets His Marching Orders
It was to be expected really, Gavin Degraw has comfortably been the worst dancer on Dancing With The Stars for some time now which, as the title of the show would suggest, isn't really the reputation you need for success on the show. His legions of fans have saved him from the drop week in week out, but even they couldn't forgive a miserly total of 19 points scored on Monday night (April 16, 2012) and - after the dance-off last night - his 'Dancing' tenure was finally brought to an end, reports the Los Angeles Times.
DeGraw found himself in a dance-off with Jaleel White and, although he tried gamely, there was no way his cha cha to Lady Gaga's 'Edge Of Glory' was ever going to defeat the far superior White, throwing his moves at the same time and - to the disappointment of the show's bosses no doubt, who would've hoped for a more tense dance-off - it was clear he was on his way home.
Other highlights of the show included Maria Menounos and Derek Hough being invited back for the Encore Dance following their steamy performance the previous night during which the TV host planted a big smacker right on the lips of her professional partner. This time round the love wasn't contained to just them, and judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli both received smooches from the pair, with judge Len Goodman playing the gooseberry.
