Anyone watch Dancing with the Stars last night? Because if not you missed a pretty major elimination mix-up as a result of this being a live show where mistakes sometimes happen! Basically, Tyra Banks was calling out the couples that were safe, and named Cheer star Monica Aldama and pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy, before saying “Anne and Keo and Vernon and Peta are in the bottom two.”
She then realized there’d been a mistake, and added “There’s actually been an error. I’m looking right now and we have three couples, so we need to clarify this for one second. The bottom two couples are Anne and Keo and Monica and Val.”
FYI that this mixup was not Tyra’s fault—as she explained, there was an error in the control room: “Please come back. Please have Monica come back,” she said. “There’s been an error in our control room, but we’re making it happen. This is live TV, right? This is the craziness of live TV.”
She continued, “This is live TV. I was reading my cards, but my cards were wrong. So here we go. Okay, again, it’s going to be up to the judges to save one of these couples and keep them in the competition. As always, if two of the judges are divided, the third judge will cast the deciding vote. And again, we apologize for this. This is live TV, and we’re all human.”
Anne Heche ended up being eliminated, and Tyra explained the situation further on Instagram Stories, saying she was told there was a “technical difficulty” and that it’s her job as the host to “keep the show going.” She did a great job, tbh!
