Dancing with the Stars: Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff Eliminated

Originally posted 04/17/2012 10:15PM

Just as Dancing with the Stars's competition was starting to look up last week for Karina Smirnoff and partner Gavin DeGraw, they once again sunk to the bottom of the leaderboard after Monday night's 19-point samba.

They've been saved in prior weeks after low scores, but will fans' votes once again be enough to keep the pair on the show? The second lowest scores of the night went to Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his recovering partner Melissa Gilbert, who earned 21 points for their samba. Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus were one point above them with a score of 22 for their samba.

After Sherri Shepherd's shocking elimination on Dancing with the Stars last week, the remaining contestants felt the pressure and turned up the heat for Latin Night in the ballroom on Monday.

Taking on the salsa, samba and the Argentine tango, nine couples performed hip-shaking routines that were in some cases downright steamy.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough performed one of the night's sexiest routines, sealing their salsa with a controversial kiss. "That was hot," Carrie Ann Inaba said, but "I don't think you needed the kiss ... Dance is about the illusion of passion."

Karina Smirnoff Wants Bruno Tonioli to Wash His Mouth 'With Bleach'

Originally posted 05/17/2011 04:00PM

Known for his rambling, racy and often raunchy ballroom critiques, the sharp-tongued Bruno Tonioli may have crossed a line on Dancing with the Stars Monday when he told Ralph Macchio he was "too rough on your [expletive]" during his sexy salsa routine with Karina Smirnoff. The comments were bleeped during the telecast, but everyone inside the ballroom heard them loud and clear.

Kelly Osbourne Calls Bruno 'Shock Jock' of DWTS

Originally posted 10/02/2010 05:00PM

Bruno Tonioli is garnering some unexpected support from a gal he once described as "beige" – Kelly Osbourne.

"I thought that Bruno was really harsh on Michael Bolton," the DWTS alum says of the judge's tough critique of the crooner's jive, "but when you watch it you can understand why he was really harsh."

Apparently, having your mother in the audience isn't going to buy you any sympathy votes as far as Osbourne is concerned.

"[Bruno's] a judge, and that's what he gets paid to do." Osbourne, 25, noted Friday while attending Teen Vogue's Young Hollywood Party in Los Angeles. "He's the shock jock of the judging panel. Yes, he was hard, but don't go on a show where you have to judge if you don't want to be judged!"

Michael Bolton: Bruno Tonioli Should Do Some Soul-Searching

Originally posted 10/01/2010 05:00PM

Michael Bolton is still a fan of Dancing with the Stars. But after judge Bruno Tonioli's "mean-spirited" critique of the singer's dance number Monday, Bolton has a message for the judge: "Bruno should search his soul for what he is doing on that show."

The Grammy award-winning singer – who was voted off the show after Tonioli described his routine as "the worst jive in 11 seasons" and said he did it "very, very, very badly" – says he has nothing but praise for the show itself. "The producers and the people who work for them are phenomenal at making you feel as comfortable as possible."

Though Bolton had said he feels the judge owes him an apology, he isn't going to ask twice.
