Dancing With The Stars - Dancing With The Stars Saves Kirstie Over Kendra
Dancing With The Stars contestant Kendra Wilkinson was eliminated from the competition during last night's results show. Dancing With The Stars audiences opted to save Kirstie Alley and Romeo, who both received lower scores than the Playboy star on Monday (2nd May 2011).
According to the New York Daily News, Wilkinson looked "a bundle of nerves on the star-studded results show" but her elimination still came as a shock to viewers who had begun to support the 25-year-old after her recent breakthrough in the competition. After host Tom Bergeron announced that she would be leaving the show, Kendra spoke of her surprise at progressing to the latter stages, saying, "I've lasted seven weeks, and that's seven weeks longer than I thought I would last". She later hugged her partner Louis Van Amstel and said, "I'd like to thank, first and foremost, Louis. Secondly, I have to thank my family, Hank, for always being there for me, and my baby Hank". With Wilkinson now eliminated from the competition, it is Hines Ward and Chelsea Kane who look most likely to lift this year's trophy.
Last night's Dancing With The Stars results show featured live musical performances from the American rapper Nicki Minaj, British singer-songwriter James Blunt, songstress Priscilla Ahn and WAYNE BRADY.
