Maksim Chmerkovskiy: I'll Never Please the Dancing with the Stars Judges

Originally posted 05/01/2012 09:30AM

It was another low-scoring week for Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Melissa Gilbert, who came in last place with 21 points for their tango on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.

But unlike in seasons past, a usually outspoken Chmerkovskiy says he's not upset, because he expects judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman to deliver tough critiques at this point.

"With a smile on my face and a happy, happy, happy, happy, happy heart, [I'll say] there's nothing we can do right by them, and it is what it is," the professional dancer told reporters backstage after Monday night's show. "Let's be realistic. If we make it to the [dancing duel], we're out. That's a fact, no matter what we do."

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.
