Were you as shocked as I was when L'il Kim, shown at left with partner Derek Hough, was eliminated last night on Dancing With the Stars? All through the season, our professional dancer/predictor Louis van Amstel has said to me: "Don't underestimate the power of the audience vote." He has stressed how important it is that the celebrity dancers develop a fan base and let viewers get to know them; that they have an appealing personality to motivate votes. All of that apparently came to play Monday. (And so much for listening to me, right? I said I'd put money on Ty Murray leaving.) The humble cowboy, who has improved greatly but is no where near the dancer that L'il Kim is, was saved to dance another week even though he had the lowest scores of all the competitors. Tell me in a post below what you think: Was last night's elimination right?
